Each tightly rendered painting is based off of a story told by one of Jeremy Fish‘s friends. Accompanying the work is a pair of headphones, equipped with said story. If you buy one of these pieces, you’ll never have to go about explaining it again as the work will do the talking for you.
On view at Joshua Liner Gallery until July 16th

This super fun show featuring the Costaco Brothers sports posters (along with a couple Jeff Koons posters) from 1986 to 1990 is on view at Salon 94 Freemans. If you had one of these on your bedroom wall as a kid, pat yourself on the back for being such an early art collector.

Great, playful work from HuskMitNavn in his latest show at Allegra LaViola Gallery in the LES.

Tat Ito recently opened a solo show at Joshua Liner Gallery featuring a trove of new paintings. What draws me most to his work are the cute, little details that keep your eye wandering about for minutes instead of seconds.
On view until June 11th, so get over there soon.
White Flag is Cleon Peterson’s first solo show in NY, and it is a doozy. 14 medium to large-scale paintings that challenge the viewers, with violence and bloodshed. You’ll either love it or hate it… and we’re on the love side of this.
on view at Joshua Liner Gallery until June 11th, 2011
Nate Lowman’s most recent effort opened at Gavin Brown’s Enterprise and Maccarone at the beginning of May. As always, there is a line of subtle humor through the work which makes the viewing enjoyable. You can peep a making of his bulletproof glass piece here, and watch a friend & family testimonial (I’m your fan) after the jump. On view until June 18th, 2011.
It’s always a pretty great feeling to come across old art shows documented well on the internet. Thanks to Ratio 3 for keeping a nice archive.

HuskMitNavn just opened a really interesting show, While We Await The Upturn, at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen. On view until November 20th, 2010.
On the occasion of the financial crisis, the real estate bubble, the art market crash, the high unemployment rate, the economic cut backs and the general depression, V1 Gallery has been turned into a waiting room. Visitors are invited to sit down and enjoy the art together while awaiting the upturn.
While We Await The Upturn is HuskMitNavn’s (RememberMyName) fourth solo exhibition with V1 Gallery. It consists of 20 human figures in a waiting room hung with drawings, photo collages and paintings. The works
all interact with each other and create a large-scale installation.
During the last nine years HuskMitNavn has exhibited extensively in his native Denmark and abroad. He works in a wide variety of contexts and media; in the public sphere, at galleries and in museums, on tee shirts, newspapers, books and his latest ventures, art playgrounds and furniture. His distinct style and subtle humor has made HuskMitNavn one of the most groundbreaking and treasured artists of his generation.
And on a side note: We still have some of the HuskMitNavn Autumn 2010 Pumpkinhead t-shirts in stock here.
Behind the front door and up the stairs of an unassuming townhouse on the Upper East Side is where you’ll find nine works by Jeff Koons. Graphic in nature, massive in size, and controversial to some, the “Made in Heaven” Series debuted at the Venice Biennale 20 years ago featuring Koons and his soon bride-to-be (now ex-wife) Italian porn star La Cicciolina. Once you get past the sex, the love and caring between these two is unmatchable.
Now on view at Luxembourg & Dayan
64 East 77th Street
