The European season has been kicking off over the past few weeks, and we just got a look at what V1 Gallery of Copenhagen has going on at the Art Basel week festivities, with a booth of Geoff McFetridge, Todd James, and HuskMItNavn works at the Volta9 fair. If you are in Europe and have a plan to be in Basel, Switzerland for the weekend, we definitely think you should check out this booth featuring some of Juxtapoz' current favorites.

One of our favorites curators of the moment, Jesper Elg of V1 Gallery in Copenhagen, just opened a curated show at The Hole in NYC called Chicken or Beef?. The show itself is loaded with great talent from both America and Europe, curated as a "Transatlantic survey of figurative painting in Europe and America, named after the ubiquitous question posed on transatlantic flights."

Copenhagen visual artist, Julie Nord, has created an amazing body of work that is playful and full of doll-like girls with big almond-shaped eyes in feminine dresses, cuteanimals and neat arabesques. She has representation from one of our favorite galleries, Copenhagen's V1.

Last week, one of our favorites, Husk Mit Navn (Remember My Name), opened a brand new body of work, One of These Days, at Copenhagen's V1 Gallery. The show is a big one, 13 paintings and 19 works on paper, and we are happy that Henrik Haven was able to head to the gallery and shoot the works in context of the space.

In conjunction with V1 Gallery's 10 year anniversary show, Tonight We Won't Be Bored, the Copenhagen-based gallery just released a series of editions that include Todd James, Richard Colman, Anika Lori, Andrè Saraiva (Mr A), Geoff McFetridge, and HuskMItNavn (Remember My Name). To us, V1 has one of the best programs of any of the galleries we cover, and we want to say congrats on 10 years of showing great artists, and here's to 10 more!

As part of Todd James' newest exhibition at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen, Free To Be You & Me, James recreated his now famed creation from MOCA's Art In the Streets and Street Market, the Vandal's Bedroom. Today, we take a closer look at the installation.

No question, there aren't many artists that pique our interest quite like Todd "REAS" James. For the past few years, his technicolor portraits of cartoon modern day pirates and contraband, with no expression and done in a flat, abstract style, are a nice counter-balance to the millions of images we see on news networks depicting contemporary warfare. James just opened Free To Be You & Me at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen...

V1 Gallery is proud to present Free To Be You & Me a solo exhibition by Todd James. The exhibition opens tonight, October 5 at the gallery's Copenhagen space. Luminous colored Somali pirates, smoking cigarettes as the sun sets, drinking tea, making hostage demands on satellite phones, brandishing AK 47’s and rocket propelled grenades populate Todd James new body of work.

This past weekend, we checked out the book/10" collaborative project between artist Ashley Macomber and musician/actor/artist Bonnie "Prince" Billy, Afternoon, and found a lot of the paintings by Macomber included in the book/10" to fantastic. The artist is part of a new show, Wild Thing, opening at See Line Gallery in West Hollywood on September 19. See the show, get the book.

As we noted on the site the other day, this is our kind of showcase. Former Juxtapoz covers, Thomas Campbell (April 2007), Evan Hecox (August 2012), and Ed Templeton (featured throughout the years, most recently, February 2012), just opened 3 shows simultaneously at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen. Photographer Henrik Haven went to check it out for us...
