If you’re a degenerate like me, then this site is for you. I love the internet.
SF born Upper Playground is opening up a new store next to Giant Robot in the East Village of Manhattan. All I can say is, it took long enough.

We finally got pictures in of Paul Schiek’s new show, the thing about you is you will end up like me at Stephen Wirtz Gallery and they are outstanding. I can only image coming into a crisp white room and being surrounded by stark black & white. That pile in the middle? The white sculpture is a limited edition book that is only available through the gallery.

With Contemporary Art presently laughing at and defying the economy, it only seems fit that Larry Gagosian is holding his namesake gallery’s second exhibition in Russia.

A special performance of Arc Light by Aaron Young will accompany the opening. Full details, plus a couple more pieces after the jump.

This weeks installment is titled Stolen Edition. I was a bit under the weather and did not make it out as much as I should have, so I resorted to the internets.
I want to open this up to contributions, so we can represent the hot chicks who frequent art openings worldwide. If you’re interested, drop me a line at dw (at) theworldsbestever (dot) com. Now, the one and only original, Hot chicks at art OpeningS.

Gallerygoers were blessed with something special this past Saturday night. Not only was Aiko’s new show at Brooklynite Gallery superb but, the Soul Sonic Force featuring John Robie gave the crowd some extra energy with a performance to close down the night in front of a dope mural by Chris Mendoza. Joe Russo caught some flicks for us. After the jump
Randomly, ‘enchiladas’ was the first word that came into my head.
“I came here to do two things, kick ass and wheat-paste, and we’re about all out of wheat paste.”
This Tuesday we are lucky to have Andrew Jackson give us a personal tour of two nights of festivities in San Francisco for Shepard Fairey’s Duality of Humanity. The fun begins after the jump.
