ANIMALANIA is for Animal Lovers

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, February 11, 2009
Everyone has a soft spot for furry creatures (and even some not so furry ones) so you’ll want to listen up when we tell you about a new show coming to New York’s Fuse Gallery. Titled ANIMALANIA, this is a show curated by photographer Aliya Naumoff, who has brought together a group of artists working in a range of disciplines from photography to sculpture with one common bond – a love of animals. Andy Kehoe, Ricky Powell (work shown above), Dennis Mcnett, Nick Zinner, Kenzo Minami, Danielle Levitt, Tim Barber (work below), Adam Wallacavage, Jeaneen Lund, Gordon Hull, AJ Fosik, Kenneth Cappello, Spike Jonze, Meryl Smith, Kristen Schaal, Hisham Bharoocha, Benjamin Bertocci, Scott Campbell, Derek Watson, Karen O, Robin Schwartz, and Ryan McGinley will all have works in this show. As if this great line-up weren’t reason enough to head over to Fuse, you should be happy to hear that all of the proceeds will go to benefit the ASPCA to help treat and care for animals in need. ANIMALANIA will open next Wednesday, February 18th, with a reception from 7 to 10 pm and remain on view thru March 14, 2009. More info at www.fusegallerynyc.com

"From the Streets of Brooklyn" Group Show in LA from NY

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 07, 2009
We’re so hyped on this show. From The Streets of Brooklyn is a wide survey of the many street and graffiti artists who call Brooklyn their home. Opening this Friday at Thinkspace, From The Streets of Brooklyn is a massive undertaking, curated by Andrew Michael Ford of Ad Hoc Art in Brooklyn (duh.) From internationally renowned street artists such as Bast and Swoon to hardcore graf writers such as Kuma and Rate, this show features almost 50 artists (including AIKO, Dan Witz [work shown above] ELBOW-TOE, Gaia, Imminent Disaster, Josh MacPhee, Maya Hayuk, and more) from every walk of street art and graf art life. Wheat pastes, stencils, murals, installs and (of course) tags and piece ups are all recognized and included in this incredible examination of what is currently going on and staying up in the streets of Brooklyn, New York. A photomontage by street art photographer Luna Park is included in the show as well as great installations in the gallery by Gaia with Rachel Lowing (front entry area) and Imminent Disaster (project room area). Also, be sure to check the area around the gallery for the incredible chalk shadows of Ellis G. dotting the sidewalks and enhancing the mundane city landscape, even if only until the next rain. Take a preview look at some of the works that will grace Thinkspace Gallery in From The Streets of Brooklyn, opening this Friday January 9th and get more info right over here…

"Brooklyn Block Party" & "Junk Store"

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 04, 2008
Brooklyn Block Party, a group showing from Richard Mock, Swoon, David Ellis, Mike Houston, Martin Mazorra, Dennis McNett, Judith Supine, ElbowToe, Gaia, c.damage, and Imminent Disaster comes to Ad Hoc Art on Friday, December 12th, 2008. Brooklyn Block Party will showcase both wood and lino hand-cut original blocks (get it…Brooklyn Block Party) along with the prints pulled from each block created by these prolific artists. On top of all that, C215 (work shown) will grace the project room with his solo show, Junk Store. With so many sick artists in one place, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a spot more crackin’ on December 12th than Ad Hoc in Brooklyn, New York. Both Brooklyn Block Party and Junk Store run December 12th, 208 - January 4th, 2009. More at adhocart.org
