Matthew Marks Gallery

The Michel Majerus' Moment

Michel Majerus @ Kunstmuseum Stuttgart from vejai on Vimeo.

With the staging of a massive Matthew Marks retrospective that spawls across the galleries at 502, 522, and 526 West 22nd Street, Michel Majerus' post-pop legacy is at maximum impact this season. After the Kunstmuseum Stuggart exhibition in 2012, an American institution was bound to pick up the mantle of Majerus' appropriation driven work. Matthew Marks certainly has not stinted on their platforming of the Berlin-based artist, whose promising career was cut short by a plane crash at age 35

Inez And Vinoodh :An On Line Resource

Shalom Harlow: PH: Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin: Purple Magazine Vollume III, Issue 8Shalom Harlow: PH: Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin: Purple Magazine Vollume III, Issue 8

I've been trying to sort out the fate of "Pretty Much Everything, Volume One" the massive Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin monograph that covers 20 years of their photography. It was supposed to have been published in January of 2007 by 7L , but a year later...no sign. The infamous opening at the Matthew Marks Gallery (The Now People Part 2: Life on Earth.) certainly whetted a lot of appetites. My hissers tell me the Matthew Marks nation had never seen that much drama, status coats and statements handbags in years upon years. Other than that, hopes for a catching a comprehensive chronicle of the late 90's work of Inez and Vinoodh are scant, that is unless you visit the airdeparis.com page that hosts several brilliant examples of their images of 10 years ago. This is where the commercial machine of Inez and Vinoodh had first started revving via the work for the Balenciaga campaign, Visionaire and V. There are brilliant glimpses of how past exhibitions of the work has been staged at mmparis.com as well as 926 archival images at artandcommerce.com. In any case if you know the story on the glitch RE: Pretty Much Everything, hiss it here. An anoynmous poster had given us a wondeful update on the whereabouts of I+V's Art and Commerce agent. Might that well informed tipster know something?

TI has got to give Polaroid purveyor Jeremy Kost props for his genius self-promotion. That boy is simply always at the right place at the right time with the right people. Voila his email RE: his Miami Art Basel bash:

Hey Everyone!

I'm super excited to invite you all to a preview of new work to be installed and shown at the newly renovated RokBar at 1906 Collins in Miami on Friday, December 7th from 8pm to 11pm.

The preview will feature new video work (What You Need is In the Limo, 2007) and the debut of my FAME series of silkscreen paintings, which can also be seen at Conner Contemporary's (my gallery's) booth at the Pulse art fair..

The event is being presented by Le Baron (Paris), Grand Life (New York), Conner Contemporary (DC), with generous support from Zune and Belvedere. There will be an open bar from 8pm to 10pm and an after-party (12pm onwards) hosted by Purple Magazine....

Please try to come on the early side as its a small space and it will be crowded. That said PLEASE RSVP to my gallery at info@connercontemporary.com.

You can expect a fun filled night with lots of surprises and some really amazing things to take home with you ;-).

If you can not make it, but would like more information, please also contact the gallery.

Hope to see you in Miami!

PS : Other events to be held at the Le Baron space include parties for NADA/Matthew Marks Gallery, Colette, Tokion, and Rivington Arms... so it will BE the place to be.
