THE ART MOSH unites young and emerging contemporary artists, from all corners of the globe, and exhibits their work in one-off ‘Pop-Up’ events in major cities. ART MOSH discovers and nurtures new talent in the art world, breaking down barriers between different media, by fusing art with contemporary music and DJ’s in unconventional venues, providing a breath of fresh air from the constraints of a traditional art gallery.

THE ART MOSH is an innovative concept supported by internationally renowned brand Nixon, in partnership with Wallpaper* and Nissan, and curated by Paddy Barstow of Six 18. Nixon have a history of collaborations with acclaimed Artists, Musicians and Athletes including; former Beatle Ringo Starr, legendary Rocker Ozzy Osbourne, Snowboarder Gigi Ruff and Skateboarder Tony Hawk.

ART MOSH PARIS will feature music by Nightmares on Wax founder and chill-out pioneer DJ EASE, plus Ricky Rankin of Roots Manuva. Local Parisian DJ’s, plus some internationals will DJ at the after-party at Chacha Club. Music will be available on the ART MOSH website after the live event.

ART MOSH is a series of exclusive, by invitation, one night only, multi-media exhibitions in unexpected locations. Featuring photography, painting, sculpture, graffiti, design, DJ sets and live music. ART MOSH has already traveled to Ireland, UK, France and the USA, and is scheduled to land at Door Studios in Paris on 26 November, for an evening of visual and oral delights. Babicka Vodka from Czech Republic will add their own special and exclusive flavour to the proceedings. Movers and Shakers from art, fashion, media, music and other creative industries will be invited to discover some of the most innovative and original young artists working today.

ART MOSH PARIS will feature key players from an eclectic roster of international artists; Axel Pauporte (Belgium); Alex James (UK); Alexandros Vasmoulakis (ATHENS); Benedict Redgrove (UK); Bose Collins (UK); Case (Germany); DMV CREW collective: Bom K, Dran, Jaw (France); Herakut (Germany); Emanuele Sferruzza (ITALY); Faith 47 (South Africa); Moto 777/ toft – robiov (Paris); Pam Glew (UK); Pomme Chan (UK); SAL (Japan); Tessar Lo (LA) and Yoskay Yamamoto (LA).

The collective of Artists and design agency Bose Collins, will work together to install a ‘Pop Up’ show for one night only, in the DIY spirit of the exhibitions created by the original Generation X Artists – the ‘Beautiful Losers’ of 90’s New York. Graffiti duo Herakut will create an artwork on the night. All artwork will be for sale, and anything unsold on the night will be available on the ART MOSH website after the event which launches in December. The ART MOSH events and website will give the artists a digital platform and global exposure.

Nixon’s LTD collection will also be available at ART MOSH, with a percentage of sales going to charities including the MusiCares MAP Fund and the Tony Hawk Foundation.

Significantly there are two strong contemporary female Artists in the ART MOSH collective; South African graffiti artist Faith 47, and British painter Pam Glew. Faith 47 tags in the spirit of the late Margaret Kilgallen (a member of the afore-mentioned ‘Beautiful Losers’, a key group of skater/ street artists). Glew’s striking cinematic imagery has a pop aesthetic, often reminiscent of Warhol screenprints.

Leading Parisian street Artist BOM. K has been painting graffiti since the age of 15. His surreal street art has a hint of Marquis de Sade, and has taken him from the streets of les banlieues where he began tagging, to galleries in London, France and Belgium. BOM. K published a book, ‘HB Black Trace’ (2007), which secured his position at the top of the French Graffiti scene.

Artistic duo Herakut (a symbiosis of Hera and Akut), are the Gilbert & George of graffiti art. Working in tandem to create layers of imagery in two individual styles, the fusion of Akut’s photorealism and Hera’s painterly backgrounds, creates an eye-catching and unique artistic hybrid.

Case, founding member of East German spray can crew Ma’Claim, and pioneer of a new style in the international Graffiti scene, will produce a live art piece during ART MOSH PARIS. Alongside fellow Ma’Claim members, Tasso and Akut (of Herakut), case developed a photorealist-style spray can technique.

Photographer Alexander James captures Parkour practitioners in mid-flight, their urban playgrounds lit dramatically like a Gregory Crewdson print; Artist Emmanuele Sferruzza Moszkowicz has collaborated with fashion houses including Michiko Koshino and Cycle, whilst his modern twist on Aubrey Beardsley sees him up there with the top graphic artists.

Each ART MOSH will be a rare gathering of Artists from all corners of the globe, along with some of the best musical talent currently on the scene, and will feature live art. Future ART MOSH events are planned in London and Milan in 2010.

Ann-Marie James | Danse Macabre

Filed under: Ecalendar,Exhibitions,mp — LoriMP @ 12:27 pm


Limited Means D09, 2009
Blue Ball-Point Pen on Paper
42 x 29cm

Embracing the idea of restriction, both conceptually and literally, James’ series of ten drawings, ‘Limited Means’, was completed using a single blue biro, taking as its subject matter the fragility of the human form.

In deliberately setting such constraints, James finds an unexpected vocabulary of marks and the fidelity of line in the most egalitarian and modest of mediums.

Referring to anatomical illustrations, from such sources as Henry Gray’s seminal volume, each drawing combines detailed and precise renderings of bones and organs in elegant and unexpected forms, both organic and geometric. The consistency of the colour, the use of symmetry and the delicacy of line evoke both traditional engravings and the aesthetic of Spode china.

Finding beauty in darkness, these grave images are at once romantic and macabre.

In addition to ‘Limited Means’ James will also present a number of works in graphite and related small sculpture.

Ann-Marie James was born in 1981 and lives and works in London. She completed her BA (Hons) in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design in 2004 and has since gone on to exhibit in France, Germany, Venezuela, Portugal and the United States. In 2006 she undertook a residency and solo exhibition with Lantana Projects in Memphis, Tennessee, and has most recently exhibited in the Westminster Open 2009 and at The Mews Project Space, London.

Sydney-based, Australian artist Lynette Wallworth presents her trilogy of interactive installations together for the first time at Sydney Festival 2010.

The three works – Duality of Light, Evolution of Fearlessness and Invisible by Night – have each been shown to great acclaim around the world. Invisible by Night had its New York premiere at the Lincoln Center for Performing Arts in July 2008; Evolution of Fearlessness was shown at Sundance Film Festival 2009; and Duality of Light was commissioned by the BigPond Adelaide Film Festival for their Art & Moving Image strand at this year’s Festival.

Together, the works investigate powerful human emotions such as grief, loss and the re-emergence of hope. Invisible by Night focuses on a grieving woman; Evolution of Fearlessness features the portraits of 11 women who have escaped persecution to make new lives in Australia; and Duality of Light invites the viewer to go on a unique and singular journey. In navigating the installation environment, the viewer will encounter an other whose surprising presence reveals the duality at the heart of the work.

Wallworth uses video and responsive technologies that rely on activation by the viewer. Her works create deeply emotional and intimate experiences that reveal the hidden intricacies of human connection within the wide, complex world.

Tracey Emin: Only God Knows I’m Good

Filed under: Ecalendar,Events,Exhibitions,mp — site admin @ 10:03 pm

[slideshow id=14]

Tracey Emin’s “Only God Knows I’m Good” exhibition features new work which explores her recurring themes of love, sex, and lust. The exhibition comprises of 53 works including a large-scale film projection, never-before-seen neons and two sculptures, and a collection of embroideries and monoprints.

Tracey Emin is well known for creating works in a wide variety of media—film, painting, neon, embroidery, drawing, installation and sculpture—that are intensely personal and revealing. Emin says of the exhibition, “This show for me is about drawing, about the line. To quote Rudi Fuchs, esteemed Dutch art historian, my ‘salty line’. Through my embroideries, the line I draw is accentuated and extreme, which complements the way that I think. I’m on a constant search for clarity. The title of the show, ‘Only God Knows I am Good’ references David Bowie lyrics: ‘God knows I’m good, God knows I’m good, surely God will look the other way today.’ Life is complicated sometimes.”

A new monograph titled “Tracey Emin: One Thousand Drawings” published by Rizzoli, will be available for purchase. Compiled in close collaboration with the artist, the book represents a comprehensive collection of Emin’s works on paper – an important part of her process.  A review is available at Studio International

Tracey Emin lives and works in London. After her exhibition Every Part of Me’s Bleeding in 1999 at Lehmann Maupin Gallery, she was short-listed for the Turner Prize at the Tate in London. In addition to a retrospective of her work at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam in 2002, other solo exhibitions have been held at the Haus der Kunst, Munich; Museum of Modern Art, Oxford; and The Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. In 2007, Emin’s work appeared in Global Feminisms, Elizabeth A Sackler Center for Feminist Art, Brooklyn Museum. In 2008 Emin held her first major retrospective at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, which subsequently toured to the Centro de Arte Contempoáneo de Málaga in Spain and the Kunstmuseum Bern in Switzerland 2009. Her work is a part of numerous public and private collections including the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, and the Hamburger Kunsthalle in Hamburg, among others. Tate Britain recently opened a room in their collection devoted entirely to Emin’s work. In 2007 Emin represented Britain at the 52nd Venice Biennale, was made a Royal Academician and was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from the Royal College of Art, London, a Doctor of Letters from the University of Kent and Doctor of Philosophy from London Metropolitan University. In 2010, the Hayward Gallery in London will present the artist’s first retrospective in England. Emin’s work is currently on view through January 2010 in the exhibition, Pop Life: Art in a Material World, Tate Modern, London.

Beyond China: The New Ink Painting from Taiwan

‘Beyond China’ is an ambitious exhibition of ten contemporary artists from Taiwan, all of whom represent the best of the New Ink Painting—the contemporary expression of the classical brush and ink style developed over the centuries. This exhibition highlights some of the most significant work being done by the most distinguished practitioners of the New Ink Painting beyond the Chinese mainland.

The works of these artists range from the neo-classical to the avant-garde and from those who have long been internationally established (Liu Kuo-sung, Tong Yangtze, Yuan Jai, Lo Ch’ing, Yu Peng, and Ho Huai-shuo) to the emerging younger generation of brilliant exponants (Fay Ku, Pan Hsin-hua, Yao Jui-Chung, and Chun-yi Lee). Each with their own distinct style, these artists represent different trends in the development of contemporary Chinese ink painting.

Ink painting, as expressed in calligraphy and monumental landscape painting, is the foundation stone of Chinese culture. While this tradition was interrupted in Mainland China because of the Cultural Revolution, Taiwan has benefited from an unbroken link with China’s cultural past.

In the past three decades, Taiwan has experienced enormous technological and economic development, which has in turn prompted its artists to search for ways to convert their culture’s traditional aesthetic into work that is relevant to the contemporary world. While all of these artists have benefited from a rigorous foundation in the brush and ink tradition, they have evolved in different adventurous ways to express the reality of modern Asia with a new pictorial language.

Opening Reception Friday, 30 October 2009, 6 – 8 PM

Halloween Screening “The Golem” at REDCAT

The Golem
with a live score by Brian LeBarton

REDCAT | the Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater
631 W Second Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012
Fri Oct 30 – Sat Oct 31 | 8:30pm
Tickets: $20 [Students $16]
213-237-2800 or

REDCAT (the Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater) celebrates Halloween with a theatrical screening of The Golem, one of the earliest and surely creepiest horror films in cinema history, accompanied by live music from tricked-out ghouls under the direction of Brian LeBarton, best known as Beck’s prodigious music director. The Golem with a live score by Brian LeBarton takes place on Friday, October 30, 2009 and Saturday, October 31, 2009 at 8:30pm.

The 1920 touchstone of Expressionism tells the Eastern European Jewish legend of the Golem–an oversize clay statue brought to life by a Prague rabbi to do muscle work and help protect the city’s Jews. It doesn’t take long, though, before the plan goes horribly wrong… With director Paul Wegener as the Golem, cinematography by Karl Freund (Metropolis) and amazing sets by architect Hans Poelzig. LeBarton’s costumed band, meanwhile, features analog keyboards, electronic treatments, cello, and special guest Carla Azar on drums and percussion.

The Golem with a live score by Brian LeBarton is funded in part with generous support from Wendy Keys and Donald Pels.


An excerpt from The Golem:

REDCAT (the Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater) opened by CalArts in 2003, introduces diverse audiences, students and artists to the most influential developments in the arts from around the world, and gives artists in this region the creative support they need to achieve national and international stature.

Ashley Hagen. Blaze, 2009
Mixed Media on Canvas
70″ x 40″

Within each of Hagen’s deliberate and romantic meditations linger the
traces of a lustrous, dark enigma – an atmospheric effect
concurrently brooding and joyous in its intensity.

Hagen’s paintings offer a captivating, resplendent mirage in which
dense abstraction of shape and texture seem to distill themselves
over time, inexorably coalescing into tangible, half-glimpsed form –
rabbits, spaceships, hopscotch charts.

Her romantic, lustrous colors of chartreuse, charcoal, lavender and
cherry evoke the mysterious delights of an Edwardian children’s candy
counter as well as the phosphorescent bottles of Belle Epoque
aperitif liqueurs.

Born in Iowa, Ashley Hagen currently lives and works in Los Angeles,
CA. Hagen received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of
Chicago. She has studied in Florence, Italy, and Vienna, Austria. Her
work has exhibited in galleries in Iowa, Chicago, Vienna, and
throughout Southern California.

Howard Seth Miller, Baseball, Schoolyard, Long Island 1982-2008
Archival Ink Jet Print
22″ x 15″

Howard Seth Miller gazes at youth through the milky cataract of age
and cultivation, creating opalescent images of childhood. Light
reveals often disturbing ambiguities of character, as shadow conceals
an impending loss of naiveté. Baseball cards and blackboards and
chain link schoolyards provide a charmingly stilted cinematic
backdrop for Miller’s haunted iconography of childhood.

Miller was born in New York City, 1954. He received his BS from
Empire State College (SUNY) and his MFA from the School of the Art
Institute of Chicago. Howard’s work has been exhibited in museums
and galleries throughout NY, Chicago, Arizona and the University Art
Museum at UC Berkeley.
