Travis Millard and Michael Krueger are opening a new exhibition in San Diego at Double Break tomorrow night, May 18. They are calling it Digging A Hole, Looking For Something, and if we lived in San Diego, we would go. “Double Break is delighted to announce Digging a Hole, Looking for Something, an exhibition of new work by Michael Krueger and Travis Millard. Coming to us from Lawrence, Kansas and Los Angeles, CA respectively, Krueger and Millard will bring new drawings, prints, ceramics and more. Both widely exhibited and admired artists, the two first connected at the University of Kansas and have long drawn inspiration from one other. Both artists explore the figure of the “common man,” displacing the mundane and the mythic from everyday life, weaving threads between past and present. Their search for the sublime in this densely hyper-visual yet vacuous post-industrial age is rife with humor, longing and discovery, as is apparent in this selection of new works on view at Double Break. The opening reception is Friday, May 18, 2012 (6-10pm).”

Barry McGee does his San Diego thing in NYC

Posted from The Citrus Report

That San Diego piece that Barry McGee for the Viva la Revolucion show pissed a lot of locals off. They didn’t really get that whole “vandalism as fine art” game that many arty types like to showcase these days. So Barry went off to Bowery and Houston in NYC and did it again. Look at it.

Viva la Revolucion: A Dialogue with the Urban Landscape @ Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego opens this Saturday

Posted from The Citrus Report

Notice the trend? Bigger institutions are starting to cover more and more, we hate to call it this but it makes sense on a mainstream level, urban art, and the next bigger exhibitions is at the Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego, called Viva la Revolucion: A Dialogue with the Urban Landscape. The names are familiar, which to us, means that San Diego got it right for a show like this: Akay (Sweden), Banksy (U.K.), Blu (Italy), Mark Bradford (U.S.), William Cordova (U.S.), Date Farmers (U.S.), Stephan Doitschinoff [CALMA] (Brazil), Dr. Lakra (Mexico), Dzine (U.S.), David Ellis (U.S.), FAILE (U.S.), Shepard Fairey (U.S.), Invader (France), JR (France), Barry McGee (U.S.), Ryan McGinness (U.S.), Moris (Mexico), Os Gemeos (Brazil), Swoon (U.S.), and Vhils (Portugal).

The exhibition opens this Saturday, July 18, and goes through January 2, 2011.
