Erin M. Riley

Real cool.

Erin Riley’s tapestries, woven from a Macomber floor loom with hand dyed wool yarn, are a series of pieces inspired by the images produced by the internet generation. The series is a product of her research into the symptoms and results of various themes, including addiction and single-parent households. Drawn to images of self-discovery, experimentation, regression, development, her works depict a generation of excess and confusion.

Erin opens a show alongside AJ Fosik and Ben Venom at Guerrero Gallery in San Francisco this Saturday night.

Ludo’s Ad Disruptions

Parisian street artist Ludo has been working on a new series of works in the streets which he has loosely titled “co-branding.” He had this to say, “It’s about invading bus shelters spaces with my work and brand them to fit in the commercial world.” Works for us.

Carte Blanche, Choice Lots

Phillips de Pury and Co. gave ex-Christies international head of contemporary art Philippe Ségalot the opportunity to curate the art sale of his dreams.  The result is a group of outstanding, expensive pieces from some heavy hitters in the world of contemporary art. The sale, which inaugurates Phillips de Pury and Co.’s new digs in midtown is the first in the Carte Blanche series. Expect more of the same quality as various artists, collectors, curators and gallery owners have a chance to curate their own dream sales. Sign me up.

Installation View: HuskMitNavn at V1 Gallery

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.

Totally confused as to the conflicting nature of The Underbelly Project but hey, they have a great press agent which I guess is the ultimate goal of any project…

The 21c Museum Hotel

When you find yourself in Louisville on pilgrimage to the Louisville Slugger Factory and Museum (awesome) there is only one place that you should consider staying, the 21c Museum Hotel. The hotel is 90 rooms and is adjoined by both an art museum, and a tasty restaurant. All the culture you’ll need after sampling their Bourbon Package.

David Shrigley

I saw this exhibition at Anton Kern yesterday, and I’m pretty sure that I’ve never spent that long in an art gallery without a drink in my hand.  The show closes this weekend, so go see it soon.
