Definitely worth checking out: William Eggleston (American, born 1939) emerged in the early 1960s as a pioneer of modern color photography. Now, fifty years later, he is its most prolific and influential exemplar. This past week, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC opened, At War with the Obvious: Photographs by William Eggleston.

Sascha Braunig's current solo show at Foxy Productions in New York will be on view until February 9th. This recent body of gouache and oil portraits combine figurative painting with op art that is worth a visit if either of these genres are of particular interest. This isn't the first time we have been mesmerized by these works this month...

We had the pleasure of attending Haroshi’s second solo show at Jonathan LeVine Gallery. The Tokio-based Japanese artist titled his new series of sculptures Virtual Reality, making reference to the classic 1993 skate video from Plan B, example of one of the most experimental and progressive eras in skateboarding. Photos after the jump...

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.
