A great show for everyone to check out, currently on view at the Grey Art Gallery of NYU, Beat Memories: The Photographs of Allen Ginsberg. One of the most visionary writers of his generation, Allen Ginsberg (1926–1997) was also a photographer. He began photographing actively in New York City in 1953, having his film developed and printed at a drugstore near his apartment on the Lower East Side.

As you may have already known, Haroshi has made an impression on the art world in recent years for his recycled skateboard sculptures. The Japanese artist is set to open a new solo show, Virtual Reality, at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC on Saturday, January 12. The repetition of skating, the craft of perfecting the right trick, comes out in the methodical arrangement of the plywood decks into recognizable characters and shapes.

If you happen to be in New York this week, and you happen to love Ed Ruscha (as we do here at Juxtapoz), then you are in luck. Assuming you may not have already seen this lovely solo-show by the California-based artist, the exhibition provides a breadth of new and older work from Ruscha, some adhering to his well known use of text and others venturing into more heavily visual works like the acrylic canvas painting Gilded, Marbled, and Foibled.

We had the pleasure of attending the opening reception of Dave Kinsey at the Joshua Liner Gallery. Everything at Once, encompass a vast collection of over thirty powerful and audacious paintings and works on paper. Dave’s images have a strong voice that explores a multilayered condensed chaos where its elements struggle to survive. He creates an interesting tension between textures and organic features, where intricate geometry assembles a beautiful representation of an insane world.

Jeffrey Gibson's work is undeniably upbeat and vibrant in its use of color and form, yet there is more going on than just these pleasing minimalist color combinations, which in themselves are captivating. Gibson is half Cherokee and a member of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians, adding weight to his use of animal hide as opposed to canvas for his acrylic paintings.
