Fans of Sonic Youth and Kim Gordon that live in the New York area are going to really love her exhibit “Design Office With Kim Gordon – Since 1980” at White Columns.  The exhibit showcases many disciplines in Kim Gordon’s art from paintings to sculpture to video installations.

The title of the exhibit references Kim Gordon’s first exhibit at White Columns and this exhibit showcases works created between 1980 and 2013.  My favorite piece in the exhibit was a tweet she painted quoting art critic Jerry Saltz, discussing Jeff Koons that says “Pretend Jeff Koons is an artist.”  Too funny!

I was fortunate enough to meet Kim Gordon at the opening night reception and she was nice enough to take a picture with me.  Thanks Kim!

When it comes to street artists, one of the pioneers in the genre is French artist Blek Le Rat.  He was spray-painting stencils on the streets when many of today’s street artists were not even sperm.  Blek Le Rat has a quite large and very cool exhibit at the Jonathan Levine Gallery in New York at the moment called “Ignorance is Bliss” and if you are interested in street art, this exhibit is a must see.

There are about 30 works in the exhibit and this marks his largest exhibit to date.  I’ve joined Instagram and you can see more photos from this exhibit on my Instagram page.  I’m “according2g” so please give me a follow.  You won’t regret it.

I was fortunate enough to meet Blek Le Rat at the opening night reception and he was extremely nice!  It was an honor to meet the man who was there at the beginning of a genre and is still going strong.  Thanks Xavier (aka Blek Le Rat)!

New York!  Ari Lankin’s latest solo exhibition is now showing at Stumble Upon in New York.  I love Ari Lankin’s work so much as he is one of he few artists around these days who is a true master of many styles.  If you follow Ari Lankin’s work you’ve surely seen the fascinating videos on his official website where he shows you the process of his works from inception to completion.  If you haven’t, the link in that last sentence will open in a new window – so get to clicking!  I’ve been fortunate to get to know Ari as a result of this blog and I am so thankful.  Ari is a prince of a guy who is both super cool extremely intelligent to talk to.

Emotional Architecture by Ari Lankin

This exhibit is the first time so many styles of his work have been shown in the same exhibit and it’s pretty bad ass to be so young and talented and already be having a retrospective of his work.  The exhibit will be up until mid-April, 2012 at Stumble Upon HQ (73 Spring Street between Crosby and Lafayette) in New York by appointment only.  Email info@arilankin.com to check out this exhibit and I highly recommend it!
