An interesting art project set by our friend Jeff at Booooooom, which encouraged (although not exclusively) those who don’t normally make art to draw a person, place, or thing that had a positive impact on their life (accompanied by a few sentences).
The end pieces we’re showcased at the Burrard Arts Foundation in Vancouver, in collaboration with Herschel Supply. You can see some of the submissions (my favourites) and exhibition shots above; visit here and here for more info.

Sculpture After Sculpture
@ Moderna Museet, Stockholm
Group Show by Katharina Fritsch, Jeff Koons and Charles Ray
A focused examination of thirteen masterworks, Sculpture After Sculpture begins with iconic works from the late 1980s and early ’90s that highlight the artists’ early relationships to the commodity and the readymade. The exhibition unfolds in a series of startling juxtapositions that trace the development of their practices from the found to the made, from the performed to the embodied. The show’s highlights include Koons’s celebrated Michael Jackson and Bubbles, 1988, a porcelain-and-gilt confection depicting the late Pop legend with his pet chimpanzee; Ray’s two-ton aluminum Tractor, 2005; and Fritsch’s acid-yellow apparition Madonnenfigur / Madonna, 1987, that famously materialized on a busy square in Münster, Germany, on the occasion of Skulptur Projekte Münster.
Dates: 11th October 2014 – 18th January 2015
