From Exhibition A, who is selling this desired Wes Lang special edition box set: "Two years ago, Wes Lang completed his first artist-in-residence term at the Chateau Marmont, resulting in a suite of exceptional stationery drawings in the tradition of Martin Kippenberger.

Exhibition A has collaborated with Wes Lang to produce a selection of ten archival prints from the Chateau Marmont drawings in a limited edition box set of 100, to be officially released next week..."

Every Freitag “Hazzard” bag has a distinct life of its own before ever making its way onto your back. Each bag is typically on the road almost fi ve years before being crafted from recycled truck tarps, with individual design infl uenced by the colors, writing or markings of the tarps. Hand cut in Zurich Switzerland, the Hazzard also uses recycled seat belts as the shoulder straps, meaning every single bag that comes out of the Freitag factory is 100% unique. The pack is perfect for daily use, from storing sketchbooks and electronics, up to a 17” laptop, while also featuring a dry compartment in the front of the bag.

The series captured Hsu's 3-week motorcycle trip through Vietnam that featured, amongst other things, a brush with death, a broken rib, and constant rain. The trip has now spawned the SPA-published, limited 150 run of The Killing Season book, featuring Hsu's documentary photography of his friends and the trip. The book is now available on SPA's site.

Working with wood for the first time ever, former Juxtapoz featured artist Steven Harrington has turned the totem-like structures of his Remain in Balance series into three whimsical, anthropomorphic lamps. Each one represents the harmony we seek in our daily lives, an inspired and inspiring reminder of the importance of equanimity.

Gerhard Richter's artistic career has traversed a whole range of impeccably technical and precise paintings to large laboriously squeegeed abstractions and many things inbetween, all of which have further enriched his fascinatingly labyrinthine oeuvre. His November series comprised of spilled ink images on paper executed with the incorporation of benzene, acetone and black tushe in order to create a variegated range of tones and colors is a wonderfully controlled experiment...

We have been anticipating this release for over a month now. June 2009 cover artist, Grotesk, has teamed up with the limited-editioned sculpture studio, Case Studyo, to release 6ft-6in, a lamp made in ode to the legend that was #23. The piece releases today, January 25, and will be made in an edition of, you guessed it, 23. To promote 6ft-6in, Grotesk and design agency, Doubleday & Cartwright, made an animated story about the lamp that lost its way.
