Pop Up: KAWS at Galerie Perrotin New York and Mary Boone Gallery

Check this cause for excitement across NYC. Despite KAWS' global presence — including regular exhibitions in Tokyo and Hong Kong, plus an iconic float in the 2012 Thanksgiving Day parade and a redesign of the MTV VMA Moonman — the Brooklyn-based artist and designer hasn't had a proper solo exhibition locally in years. He's back in a big-time way, commanding both Mary Boone Gallery's downtown space and Galerie Perrotin's recently opened Manhattan base. — Brian Fee, Austin contributor

Julie Mehretu’s LIMINAL SQUARED at Marian Goodman Gallery

The artist Julie Mehretu has often commented that “trying to figure out who I am and my work is trying to understand systems.” In a new body of work on view at Marian Goodman Gallery in New York, it is equally her desire to understand systems and their disintegration that becomes the subject of her art.

Highlights from the 2013 VOLTA Show

I hope you liked the pics I posted yesterday from the Armory Show. Today I'm sharing photos from The Volta Show. It's hard to choose which images to post, but I chose the following to give you a feel for the fair (in case you couldn't make it) and to feature the stand-out booths and works. The venue was great...A bit cramped at times, especially on the first floor, but the building was beautiful and the location was awesome. Already looking forward to next year! - Andrew Katz, Associate Publisher

Highlights from the 2013 Armory Show

Another year, another Armory Show. Overall a good year for painting! However, the fair was a little weird this time around with a clear shortage of "Blue Chip" galleries (You'll find them at Frieze later in the year), but maybe that's a good thing. More room for everyone else...Below are some highlights (in my humble opinion) from the fair. Tomorrow I'll be posting pictures from VOLTA. Enjoy! - Andrew Katz, Associate Publisher

Keep on Shining: Suzan Frecon at David Zwirner Gallery

Compositionally simple and deeply emotional. Deliberate execution and intuitive adaptation. For 40 years, Suzan Frecon has married these opposing forces in a transcendent, shimmering abstract style unmistakably her own. Throughout paper, her second solo exhibition at David Zwirner in New York, Frecon delves into the interplay between media and the surfaces receiving it.  — Brian Fee, Austin contributor

The Joy of Painting: Giorgio Griffa at Casey Kaplan

Marks to canvas, or even more concretely: gestures to a surface. Rarely is the act of painting — the rote, even mechanical notion of applying media from point A to B — so vividly celebrated as in Fragments 1968 – 2012, Giorgio Griffa's career-spanning survey at Casey Kaplan in West Chelsea. That this four-decade mark-making exploration is Griffa's first stateside solo exhibition since 1973 makes it even more auspicious. — Brian Fee, Austin contributor

Past Featured NAP Artists at VOLTA NY

Next week we're headed back to NYC for VOLTA and The Armory Show. Both fairs are open to the public starting on Thursday, March 7th, and open through Sunday, March 10th. I'm anxious to see how the new venue for VOLTA NY works out, although the raw space looks amazing (pictured below). I'll be taking plenty of photos so check back here on the 11th. I'll do my best to put you in the heart of the action in case you can't make it. - Andrew Katz, Associate Publisher

How Paul Chan is Destroying Books

The idea of destroying books—literally and figuratively—never occurred to artist Paul Chan, until a couple of years ago. His ebook publishing company, Badlands Unlimited, was participating in the New York Art Book Fair, when an argument broke out in front of their booth. Two women were having a heated discussion about whether or not publishers like Chan's were destroying books. One of the women argued that the shift to electronic books was inevitable, while the other vehemently disagreed, declaring, "They are burning books!" Although not present at the fair himself, when Chan heard this story, he says a light bulb went off.

Anj Smith at Hauser & Wirth

Portraits by the British artist Anj Smith appear at first glance to be those of young women. But careful viewing reveals elements that throw their portrayal of femininity into question—a few strands of facial hair, an Adam’s apple. Smith says the ambiguity is intentional, and that she was inspired to investigate issues of gender in her work by a close friend who recently underwent gender reassignment surgery. Her paintings are at once radical explorations of identity and sexuality, fused with a painting practice that has its roots in a fifteenth-century aesthetic and technique, a striking contrast that invigorates her work.

Go Big or Go Home in Chelsea (Does Size Matter?)

We found this great post recently (along with many others) on the GalleristNY. Rachel Corbett reports on the nature of the Chelsea art scene. What is causing the boom in larger gallery spaces, especially considering that so many have closed up shop in recent years? Read on to hear Corbett's perspective and let us know what you think in the comments section below.
