Congrats to Simphiwe Ndzube for his inclusion on Forbes Africa's list of 30 Creatives Under 30!

Ndzube has always had a love for art. In the early stages of his career, he told stories inspired by the struggles faced by township residents, specifically in Masiphumelele where he grew up. “I’ve always been involved as a creative growing up, taking formal and informal art classes, dancing, and then later going to art school. Art School gave me the confidence and a bigger perspective of the art world and that’s how I went in, often times blindly,” he says....

Last two days to catch Kat Olschbaur's Wilde Reiter at OOF Books

Hosted by OOF Books | April 12–May 20, 2018

Wilde Reiter is, ultimately, an evolution of work centralized around personal narrative, cultural narrative, and the subjective marriage of the two as seen through a lens that pushes the viewer to evaluate their stance on the subject matter in a Brechtian manner—making the familiar strange.

Adrien Ghenie's Solo Show 'Jungles in Paris' opens at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac

Adrien Ghenie's Solo Show 'Jungles in Paris' opens at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac

Paris Marais | April 28–June 16, 2018

4/28/2018

The title of this exhibition “Jungles in Paris” has been borrowed from the Henri Rousseau exhibition at Tate Modern in 2005-06 (later show at Grand Palais, Paris and National Gallery, Washington). The visual tension created by the juxtaposition of two seemingly disparate environments (the sophisticated urban Paris versus the exotic wild untethered jungle) is the foundation for Ghenie’s new body of work.

LU Song's solo exhibition at OCAT Museum, Xi'An

LU Song's solo exhibition at OCAT Museum, Xi'An

In his painting, Beijing-based Lu Song also wanders through the shifting landscapes that are evolving on the edge of urban environments. Similar to the visual beauty that Li Xiaofei finds in assembly lines, Lu Song’s brooding vision, at times magical, at other darkened by a haunting disquiet, lulls viewers into a duplicitous mood of serenity before awaking us to its deeper message.

Omul Negru - Edition 666

Omul Negru - Edition 666

Do you like ghost stories? Want some new nightmares?

 

The invocation of Omul Negru at Galeria Nicodim in Bucharest, and then again with its resurrection at Nicodim Gallery in Los Angeles was an alignment of anthropology, ritual magic and sacrilegious geometry set inside curatorial red rooms. The corresponding codex is at once a grimoire and a folklore as much as it is an exhibition catalogue and an anthology of evil. It will define a new kind of pornography and should not be treated lightly as it possesses the most evil representations of humankind's darkest nadir.

 

The book contains texts from Aaron Moulton, Alissa Bennett, Dr. Philip Zimbardo, Reverend Jim Jones, Albert Fish, et al.
