Murakami @ Gagosian NYC

I was able to check out the Murakami Exhibit at Gagosian on it’s last day in NYC. The sculptures were my favorite pieces, namely the silver piece entitled Invoking the Vitality of a Universe Beyond Imagination. Murakami seems best known for his work with Kanye West and Louis Vuitton, but I think his personal works are clearly more extensive.

Robolights Art Installation / Holiday Lights – Palm Springs

IMG_6362IMG_6406 IMG_6367 IMG_6351 IMG_6388

This past weekend I visited the Robolights art installation in Palm Springs. It was mind blowing – these photos really don’t do it justice. It reminded me of a Christmas haunted house. The artist Kenny Irwin Jr. created a wonderland filled with robots, lights, and music. Using anything from pool filters, microwaves, toilets and surge protectors the exhibit was larger than life in his 2 acre backyard. It’s 100% worth the day or night trip from Los Angeles.

Robolights is open 4- 9 PM Rain or Shine til 1.6.15.

Emerge Exhibit – DC

I went to the Emerge Art Fair in October and it was interesting/entertaining/fun! Particularly the mannequins (?)  in rabbit suits strategically placed everywhere, and some great performance art pieces. The exhibit was at the Capitol Skyline Hotel and pieces were scattered all around, including in the underground parking garage and the walls of their diner.
