It's always a fun pleasure to dig through an exhibition with so many artists filled with loads of talent and creativity to spare. With the title of NOT THERE, this exhibit explore the many faces of our complex future. As I quote that: "the Modern World has become a strange place, our online profiles have become more valuable than our physical version". We've reached a new level of complexity where we just can't stay isolated anymore through our walls. Let's take a dive into this gorgeous exhibition. NOT THERE exhibition at FU Art Gallery in Little Haiti, Miami. Works from Camila Acosta, John Morr, Luis Miguel Torres, Omar Alarcón, Cristhian Ramírez & Diego L Rodríguez. Camila Acosta Cristhian Ramirez Diego L. Rodriguez John Morr Luis Torres Omar Alarcon NOT THERE explores the many faces of a complex future, from places to individuals, focusing the attention in the digital identity. Everything outside the grid will become solitaire, empty and confuse, while in the digital world we will have multi-personalities. We’ll be adaptive ‘mutants’ transforming our identities in real time, working as data packages.

This post is dedicated to an upcoming exhibit taking place in our backyard here in San Francisco in honor of Daft Punk and the release of their new album Random Access Memories. We first posted about the new album a couple weeks back with a tutorial on the sleek poster design. Earlier this week we did a snappy post surrounding the punk movement in line with the theme of this year's Met Gala in NYC. It just seems fitting to keep the conversation alive and we are eagerly anticipating what is sure to be a mind blowing gallery exhibit. If you're in SF, be sure to it check out. If you aren't, we've pulled together a handful of our favorite works by talented artists that were inspired by this legendary French duo. "With their modern disco sound and blend of house, funk, electronic and techno music, Daft Punk puts on one of the world’s most popular DJ performances. Their musical talent is matched only by the extraordinary visuals of their live performances. Daft Punk’s highly anticipated Random Access Memories is their fourth studio album and the first since the 2005 release of Human After All. " Gauntlet Gallery’s “ReDiscovery” debuts on May 18th with an opening night reception from 7pm to 10pm. The show will be on view until June 15th, 2013. Located at 1040 Larkin Street in San Francisco, Gauntlet Gallery’s hours are 12-7pm Tuesday through Saturday, and by appointment.
During March 2013, Salon91 Gallery celebrated design and typography with ‘Back in 5 minutes’ an exhibition featuring an award winning set of local designers, typographers and illustrators, including Ben Johnston, Clinton Campbell of Studio Muti, Clement de Bruin, Justin Southey, & Dani Loureiro. Each artist has approached the discipline of typography in a fresh & unique style, playing with scale, materials, surface quality, form, color, dimensionality & of course, words. When I saw this project on Behance I was blown away by the quality and the amount of details of some of the artworks. It's pure inspiration and now I want to try something similar to improve my rusty type skills. Video 'Back in 5 Minutes' - An Exhibition of Typography from Nicholas James on Vimeo.
With the announcement of the Slashthree collective's partnership with DACS in a collaborative live art exhibition aimed at raising awareness and money for victims of child slavery, the collective decided to run an online exhibition alongside it. "World Exhibition III" is a unique project for the collective, as it is the first incrementally-released exhibition in Slashthree's history; the first set of artworks will release on July 2, 2012, and more will release every two weeks until the project is deemed complete. The exhibition aims to allow our artists to work freely and creatively, in a similar fashion to World Exhibitions I and II before it, and we hope it will create fantastic visual and aural experience.

I've been to very few exhibitions in my life, but there's some that would be worth traveling abroad just to visit, like the Star Wars Identitites Exhibition, which will open in April, in Canada. Sometimes I feel all good events happen in Canada. I'm jealous. The exhibition will debut in April 19th in Montreal and October 27th in Edmonton. Here you can check some of the mind-blowing images that will be displayed there. Some pretty awesome, creative pieces, indeed. For more of it, you must buy tickets at the official site and travel to Canada, but I'm pretty sure it's worth the price of it. I hope you enjoy these! Cheers. ;)
After a year in the making, Designers Against Child Slavery is proud to announce the release of its second exhibition entitled, "Episodes". Over the past 12 months, artists from around the world were challenged to create pieces of art based on the journey of a sex trafficking victim. DACS categorized this journey into three episodes: Coercion, Enslavement, and Restoration. Each artist was asked to illustrate one of the three episodes. The end result was a beautiful body of work that flows in chronological order, taking you on a journey through the eyes of a trafficking victim. DACS believes that art is a very powerful form of communication. Artists down through the ages have used various forms of art to send messages to the public. So today's digital artists and Illustrators take their place in a long line of outspoken citizens of the world. Designers Against Child Slavery calls artists from all over the world to use their talents in order to give a voice to the voiceless.

A few months ago we featured Sara Blake, also known as ZSO, here on Abduzeedo. For those who do not know who she is, Sara is an interactive art director, designer and illustrator living in New York City. She has just resigned for her full time job at Euro RSCG to pursue her dream of art full time. So in this post we have some images from her Solo Exhibition in Sydnety. All the pieces are available for sale, and if you want to get one just visit her Web site at http://www.hellozso.com/. We here at Abduzeedo are huge fans of Sara's work and we highly recommend to check it out, we're sure you will love it! The Cock (SOLD OUT) Clown Mona Lisa Alice Puppet The Strongest Man In The World everything is connected by certain rules and quality — texture, colour, and linework.

Horizons, a series of architectural photographs by Brazilian photographer Bruno Cals, will be on view at 1500 Gallery from May 6-July 31, 2010. The six photographs in the exhibition are part of a personal artistic project that Cals, a well-known fashion/advertising photographer based in Sao Paulo, Brazil, has been working on since 2008. The photographs in the Horizons series are suggestive of something beyond the record presented. The images of the buildings in São Paulo, Tokyo and Buenos Aires explore the limits of two-dimensionality, and articulate a radically different perspective on a commonplace visual scenario. In expressing this fresh point of view, Bruno Cals has invoked contrasting themes of possibility versus impossibility, presence versus emptiness, and search versus satisfaction. About Bruno Cals Bruno Cals was born in Rio de Janeiro in 1967. At age 19, Cals moved to Paris and began a successful career as a fashion model. At age 26 he decided that he wanted to be a photographer and returned to Brazil where he began shooting professionally. Initially a fashion photographer, Cals worked for Vogue and Elle and Visionaire. Since then, he has become a successful advertising photographer, working for the largest advertising agencies in Brazil. He has won several awards, including three at the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival. Some photos from the exhibition About 1500 Gallery Alexandre Bueno de Moraes and Andrew S. Klug founded 1500 Gallery in 2010. The gallery specializes in Brazilian photography and is the first gallery in the world with this explicit focus. 1500 interprets the notion of “Brazilian photography” to comprise photography made by Brazilian photographers, as well as images bearing a conceptual or thematic relationship to Brazil. 1500 represents the work of 17 artists, both emerging and established: 6 of 1500’s photographers are represented in the Sao Paulo Museum of Art’s Collection of Photography. 1500’s collection of images includes both contemporary and vintage photography.

Earlier this week I attended the press preview of the upcoming MoMA Tim Burton retrospective exhibit, which opens Sunday, 22 November 2009. The exhibit is a showcase of his work from childhood to the present. There are paintings, sketches, figurines, sculptures, photography, video, storyboards, and props from his movies. MoMA did an excellent job of encompassing all aspects of his work. I've been a fan of his since I first saw Pee Wee's Big Adventure, but it wasn't until Beetlejuice that I truly saw his genius. The exhibit was sponsored by the Syfy channel, which I enjoy as well. Here are some of my photos from the exhibit. If you're in New York City, you definitely have to check it out. It's open until April 2010. I left the exhibit very inspired and I definitely plan to see it again. Tim Burton gave some remarks at the press preview, mostly just to say thanks. I've included that, and some other footage I shot, in this little video I put together. This was shot on my Canon Powershot SX-1 IS. Here's an official video by MoMA about the exhibit.
Last Weekend I went to the ultimate illustrator exhibition called "Illustrative" in Berlin. Besides visiting a beautiful city - Berlin is awesome - I got to check out some really great illustrations, installations and designs. I also talked to many designers and illustrators, and representatives of their agencies. Take a sneak peak in here. Boy, what a great weekend. About Illustrative Illustrative is the self titled leading international forum for contemporary illustration and graphic arts. It takes place once year in two different cities around the globe. You may have seen it in Paris or Zürich, or in Berlin where it occured for the third time. Every year the exhibition displays an inspiring collection of current illustrative and graphical art with over 600 works from more than 60 artists. Over the course of two weeks, the festival celebrates the illustrative arts, presents new talents and trends, exchanges ideas, marvels at progressive technologies, and rediscovers forgotten styles. Illustrative features an exclusive exhibition and shows works from 60 internationally recognised illustrators in addition to hosting conferences, a film program, and parties. Illustrative displays not only the quality and fantasy of the latest graphic arts but also shows how the visual effects of graphic design, illustration, book art, comics, concept art, and animation spill into and influence the field of art. Additionally - this year - MTV joined the party presenting their art community MTV Playground. Inside an old church they came up with lots of playful stuff where people had to interact with design; like a light graffiti room, showcases with remote controls, and tables where you could design your own typograpic print. On top of that they arranged an art battle between two french artists, who in real life run a design studio called Ben & Julia. I'm going to tell you more about this in my second article about this event. First Impressions What could you pick for a better place than the St. Elisabeth Church an old grungy building to showcase a varity of illustrations. Near the exhibition The entrance really nice illustrations installations & movies showcased I dont know why but I want this lots of designs walls portfolios artist doodeling agencies promoting their artists I had a little chat with the guy working for iStockPhoto. I want to give away 10 Credits for the iStockPhoto Website with which you can buy photos, videos, illustrations and audiofiles. Thanks to them. Just retweet this article on Twitter and I pick someone in the next days @obstgemuese Stairs The Exhibition took place in a three story building. As a nice add-on effect they put prints and doodles on the walls so no walk was tiring. This was a brilliant idea and i spent a lot of time examing them closely. Brief But Valuable Insight In The Artists Illustrations Damien Poulain 'Totem 49' is a project consisting of a series of 49 hand-painted totems made of recycled wood, inspired by ancestral sculptures and religious fetishes. The project was conceived after I visited the Musée Guimet in Paris, and was impressed by the multitude of gods from oriental religions and the complex and obscure symbolism of their scultural representations. I have always been fascinated by Outsider Art and was draws to the idea working with a form that I could only understand as an outsider. Knowing little about the motivations of the creators of the works that inspired me, I have adapted their form to examine contemporary culture. My totems attempt to make solid, timeless objects from fleeting events of the 21th century, allowing for reflection on the colossal power of the image and the role of the new tribes and the mythology in an increasingly seculat society - Damien Poulain Haroshi Lorenzo Petrantoni Mario Hugo Martin Haake Yoh Nagao Paul-Henri Masson Rebecca Maeve Manley Sebastien Preschoux Sidney Pink Skinner Thanks for reading. Stay tuned for part 2 of the exhibtion.
