Before he was an acclaimed film maker David Lynch was a highly trained painter. A body of his work from 1965 to present is now on view at museum attached to his alma mater. 

Do Ho Suh / The Contemporary Austin / Austin, TX
This South Korean artist is one of our favorites. Check out his transparent architectural structures that are beyond breath taking in person.  

Carl Andre: Sculpture as Place, 1958 - 2010 / Dia Beacon / Beacon, NY
This retrospective of minimalist assemblage artist Carl Andre spans 50 years and was a major inspiration for our Untitled Collection.

Rob Pruitt : Multiple Personalities / Gavin Brown Enterprises / New York City, NY
Evocative of Rothko painting, Pruitt addresses deeply dark material is transcendent ways with this new collection of paintings.

Andy Warhol: Shadows / The Museum of Contemporary Art / Los Angeles, CA
This monumental Warhol piece is making it's West Coast debut. Prepare to be wowed by it's sheer scale and color.

Geoffrey Farmer : Let's Make the Water Turn Black / Perez Art Museum Miami / Miami, FL
Canadian artist Geoffrey Farmer has set aside his forte of collage for something much more surreal and freakier. Go for the art, but stay for the Herzog and de Meuron architecture. 

Mark Mothersbaugh: Myopia / Museum of Contemporary Art Denver / Dener, CO
More commonly known as the front man of the new-wave band Devo, Mothersbaugh has been tinkering away in the fine arts for over 30 years. Much like his music, the art is cheeky and humorous, but with a punch of social awareness.
