We previewed Joram Roukes' newest exhibition, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, with work based on the Smashing Pumpkins seminal double disc LP, at B15 Gallery in Copenhagen last week, but our friend Henrik Haven stopped by the opening with Roukes to take a few shots. As the gallery noted, the artist ""orchestrated the works with respect for the bands original idea, which has been to instill fans with both sadness and hope."

Danish artist Troels Carlsen will be opening a solo exhibition entitled Mute Appeal at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen this Friday the 7th. The show will include 10 antique lithographs of stern looking gentlemen all modified seamlessly, de-constructed, now with wooden structures morphing with their heads. Displacement and vertigo are reoccurring themes in Mute Appeal, with the works both familiar and strange. Troels will be featured in the August 2013 issue of Juxtapoz Magazine.

One of our favorite street artists, Valencia, Spain-based Hyuro, has completed a mural in Copenhagen, Denmark in conjunction with her solo show at ArtRebels from May 24th through June 15, 2013. In/Between will feature 17 original drawings highlighting Hyuro's interest in human interiority and the female body, often in relation to animals and natural elements. The exhibition is a subtle reflection on identity and freedom, both individually and collective. The items exhibited are all paper drawings of artworks that Hyuro has created as street pieces all over the world. All photography and information from our friend, Henrik Haven.

As we noted on the site earlier this week, our good friend, NYC-based Dennis McNett, has a show opening at MOHS in Copenhagen, Denmark starting this April 19, 2013. Remember, for the last 6 years the Wolfbat tribe has grown and performed ceremony, sacrifice, and spread the way of the Wolfbat throughout the North American continent. Artifacts from these ceremonies are presented here at Mohs in Copenhagen to show that Wolfbats are indeed real. Henrik Haven wait to check in...

Our friend Henrik Haven stopped by the new Clare Rojas exhibition at Galleri Nicolai Wallner in Copenhagen this past weekend. As we have seen in a past exhibition at PRISM in Los Angeles, the San Francisco-based artist has moved away from her more figurative folk works into more abstract, minimalist explorations in color and shape.
