Transcending Boundaries by teamlab
 
Is contemporary Asian art gaining more recognition in the West today? Apparently so. Interestingly, three prominent contemporary art galleries in London held exhibitions on three very different Asian artists/collective around the same period, and one of the most talked about exhibition must have been the immersive "Transcending [...]

Matt Mullican: The Sequence of Things at Camden Arts Centre
 
I am not a fan of mega blockbuster art exhibitions, often I find them over-hyped and mentally exhausting. There are some smaller and out-of-the-centre art centres/galleries that I love visiting and Camden Arts Centre (in Hampstead) is one of them.
Recently, I went to [...]

Jeff Koons at Newport Street Gallery

Posted on October 16, 2016 by Toothpicker

 
Ok, I am not a fan of Jeff Koons nor Damien Hirst, so what was I doing at Hirst's art gallery for Koons' Now exhibition? One reason: architecture.
