Their architectural proportions contrast with several mid-sized sculptures whose humanistic scale alludes to bodies loosely arranged in groups. Kenyon’s anthropomorphic works are seemingly approachable fi... [more]

Prohibition Gallery is a boutique gallery on W. Washington Boulevard, sharing the Culver City Arts District with other galleries such as Corey Helford Gallery and Hinge Modern (where I have previously reviewed shows and interviewed artists). With its white walls, concrete floor and barred windows, Prohibition Gallery stands in stark contrast to its neighbors. Being in the small space feels intimate. The gallery's ambiance is one of edgy youth (the gallery opened recently, in 2011) and a sense... [more]

Greene Exhibitions is proud to present Aaron Garber-Maikovska: Fast Red Lobster opening November 23rd. In March of this year, the artist visited a Red Lobster seafood restaurant for the first time. After finishing his meal, and using the space granted him as a patron of the establishment, Garber-Maikovska engaged in “bumping” – a part of his practice where the semi-public places of commerce are used as a place to play. The action was filmed by the artist’s friend, and it became... [more]
