In the Book & Printed Matter Lab at Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles is a display of photographs from the Icelandic town of Seydisfjördur. The photographs are not displayed in the traditional manner of ink on paper, rather the photographs are shown on the wall by four projectors. Created by Dieter Roth, his two sons Björn and Karl and Pal Magnússon, the photographs depict the Icelandic landscape, houses and roads. In an adjacent display are notes and the original photographic prints, allowing visitors to see the archived materials.

Jonas Gerard

FullSizeRender 3.jpgThe Asheville Regional Airport created a mini gallery to showcase one artist who practices in Asheville’s River Arts District [RAD]. Right now the airport gallery is exhibiting the art of Jonas Gerard. Born in Morocco, Gerard lived in New York City and now currently resides in Asheville, North Carolina. Despite living in North Carolina, Gerard remains influenced by New York and Morocco. While painting, Gerard listens to Moroccan tribal music, Afro-Cuban rhythms and jazz, allowing the melodies to inspire him.

Our View From Here

IMG_0085Our View From Here // Linn Meyer

Swirling on the second floor of the Hirshhorn Museum is the site-specific drawing “Our View from Here” by Linn Meyer.  For this piece Meyer drew directly onto the wall of the gallery, creating a total of 400 linear feet. As visitors walk around the gallery their perspective of the work changes, the drawing spirals and twirls around the circular gallery space. Interested in seeing Meyer’s drawing process? Check out this time-lapse of her working: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bYPwZv2Ul0M

Berlin based artist Katharina Grosse recently exhibited her latest body of work at Gagosian Gallery in NYC. Grosse paints large canvases with a spray bottle. She does not plan where to apply paint, rather she paints in the moment. In addition to canvases Grosse also showcased a 3-dimensional work of acrylic on aluminum in which she applies paint in the same spontaneous style as her canvas pieces.

LIFE WTR

A new type of canvas has arrived: water bottles. LIFE WTR has decided to use its bottle as a blank canvas for artists. Every three months new artists will have the chance to design a label for the bottle. The first group of artists’ creations have hit the supermarket shelves. The three artists are Jason Woodside, MOMO and Craig & Karl. Jason Woodside’s bottle evokes the feeling of lakes, oceans and water in varying shades of blue [bottle on the far left]. MOMO’s label reflects the bold murals he creates [bottles on the far right]. Craig & Karl’s bottle shows a geometric hand making the “OK” sign reinforcing it is good to drink more water [bottle in the middle]. Become #MoreInspired with your Craig & Karl’s “OK” bottle by taking selfies with the water bottle and posting them on social media, a collaboration titled Craig & Karl x You. Be sure to look out for the next three artists sometime in early summer!

Three brilliantly colored flowing cloaks were recently on view in tANJA gRUNERT in NYC. Created for this exhibition, these dyed fabrics are part of a new body of work where Khorramian explores fabrics and clothing design. The flowing nature of these robes resemble traditional Chinese robes blended with modern pigments and abstract forms.
