Lazarides Gallery is pleased to announce David Choe’s Exhibition, Nothing to Declare.

Where: Lazarides Gallery 320 North Beverly Drive, Beverly Hills CA 90210
DON’T TRIP! But Kidrobot x Sanrio figures hit the interweb! YES! KIDROBOT AND SANRIO!!! First there was Frank Kozik’s packaging for a devilish Hello Kitty figure (based on this Three Apples painting) and then shortly after Amanda Visell’s Badtz Maru. Pretty exciting, Hello Kitty is huge worldwide and these figures should certainly increase exposure for the artists involved and designer toys as a whole.
After digging around a bit on the ‘net and elsewhere, here’s a little more info. The release is a likely a ways off yet (in 2010), the figures are apparently medium sized (not minis), and the list of artists includes Tara McPherson. Here’s guessing that the new toys might be part of Sanrio’s 50th Anniversary.

A highly entertaining new exhibition at the Arts Décoratifs museum focuses on the seminal work of Paris designers in the 70s and 80s. By assembling superstars like Yohji Yamamoto and Christian Lacroix, as well as such unsung heroes as Jean Muir and Marc Audibet, curator Olivier Saillard has resurrected the recent yet often misunderstood period in fashion. Creativity was stretched to its limits, models of all ethnic origins began working together, suited-up marketing guys didn’t direct trends, and it was the last era that prêt-à-porter would be informed by haute couture.
Eric Nakamura & Saelee Oh discuss their paper art animated video art piece that is currently featured in Scion’s Installation 6: Video national art tour. They give great insight into how they painstakingly created their short – lots of freestyle scissor work, late nights, complaining and fun! Please let me know if you can post this video on your site. The tour will visit Minneapolis in May…stay tuned for details. Visit Scion Installation for more photos and information.
My favorite Scion project yet!
The famous mural space on Houston in New York City is once again getting a make-over. After Keith Haring and Os Gemeos, Shepard Fairey is painting the mural to go a long with his exhibition at Deitch Projects, opening May Day.
Meditation on art’ is an exhibition devoted to the work of American pop artist roy lichtenstein on show at the triennale museum in milan. his work is part of an art historical tradition that reuses subjects employed by other artists. he was the first to evolve an aesthetic theory that could transform a copy into an original.
