Haroshi‘s figures, made from used skateboard decks, appear to be getting massive in size. But in fact, the gallery holding them is miniature. The 20-inch sculptures are part of the new Arsham/Fieg Gallery‘s first show at the Kith Manhattan flagship store. Alongside his figures are what appear to be 3D-printed versions of the gallery’s namesakes, artists Daniel Arsham and Ronnie Fieg.
Some of the most compelling art comes from the combination of opposing values. The group exhibition “A Primitive Future”, opening on December 5th at Subliminal Projects in Los Angeles, aims to address questions of a future interpreted through the past- questions like, “How will colonialism take shape in the future?” or “What can the future look like?” The show features new work by artists featured in Hi-Fructose and on our blog: AJ Fosik (HF Vol. 18), Ben Venom, Frohawk Two Feathers, Haroshi (HF Vol. 30), Lucien Shapiro, and Ravi Zupa. The six artists collectively weave together past and future practices in a variety of media, never landing on one particular interpretation.
Now a well-established Manhattan gallerist, Jonathan LeVine continues to nod to his roots in the 1980s New York punk scene with his curatorial choices. Over the past 10 years, Jonathan LeVine Gallery has become a premier destination for high-caliber art with a countercultural aesthetic and the gallery (which is down divided into two locations) will celebrate a decade in business with “The Color and the Fury: 10 Years of Jonathan LeVine Gallery.”
