After a slight delay, the long awaited catalog for the landmark exhibition In the Land of Retinal Delights: The Juxtapoz Factor is now available.

The catalog came out just beautifully and features the work of all the artists in this groundbreaking exhibition. Also included are essays by the curator Meg Linton and Museum director Bolton Colburn, along with full details on where all the pieces came from and more.

BrooklynStreetArt.com post interview / preview of "From the Streets of Brooklyn"…

The good folks over at BrooklynStreetArt.com just posted a nice interview with myself and the curator of ‘From the Streets of Brooklyn’, Ad Hoc Art‘s very own Andrew Michael Ford. You can check out the full interview with both of us here.

Image of Stikman direct from the streets of LA shown above. Be sure to get down early to the show at Thinkspace on Friday, as there will be many ‘free’ works from Stikman to be found around the gallery!!!

The good folks over at The Art Collectors blog and forum recently stopped by our gallery to check things out and then followed me back to our home to view our personal collection. It was a great day filled with tons of art talk and the feature came out great. Thanks much to Ronnie and the gang for picking us to be the first folks featured in this ongoing series. Looking forward to future installments for sure.

Read the full interview / feature here. Be sure to watch their blog regularly, always good stuff!

Dan-ah Kim’s debut NYC solo show coming up…

Hot off showing with us down at Art Basel as part of our ‘Looking Glass’ exhibit, Brooklyn-based artist Dan-ah Kim is preparing for her debut solo show in NYC coming up this weekend.

Dan-ah Kim
‘Misadventures’
January 10 – February 4, 2008
Reception: Saturday, January 10, 6:30
Giant Robot Gallery
437 East 9th Street (Between 1st Ave. & Ave. A, in the East Village)
New York, New York 10009 / (212) 674-GRNY (4769) / grny.net
Dan-ah Kim is a Brooklyn-based artist and designer who divides time between making art and freelancing in film and television. Kim’s show will include paintings and mixed media pieces of various sizes, done with gouache, ink, acrylic, layers of paper, and threaded details. Of her recent work, the Pratt Institute graduate says she has found inspiration in everything from history and mythology to constellations. Kim mingles such stories and curiosities with her New York surroundings to create multi-layered, highly textured experiences and imagery of new worlds featuring female protagonists and fantastic creatures in heroic, colorful settings.
Look for Kim to return to Thinkspace for her second Los Angeles solo show in the spring of 2010. Until then, check out our ‘available artworks’ section to view some great works and if you are in NYC this weekend, be sure to swing by her show.
