Urs Fischer "The Kiss" @ Sadie Coles Gallery In London

Urs Fischer’s 2017 exhibition at Sadie Coles HQ centers on a large-scale replica of Auguste Rodin’s The Kiss, cast in white Plasticine. The famous image of embracing lovers will morph and fragment over the course of the exhibition through the interventions of visitors, who will be free to remould the Plasticine at will. The image of an entwined couple also appears in a group of four new paintings, in which the artist uses classic movie stills as stock visual formulae – found images to be disrupted and redeployed. Urs Fischer "The Kiss" will be on view until March 11, 2017 at Sadie Coles in London. photographs by Mazzy-Mae Green

Creepy Crawl These Days "Raymond Pettibon Flyers" From The Collection Of Bryan Ray Turcotte @ These Days Gallery In Los Angeles

Creepy Crawl These Days "Raymond Pettibon Flyers" is an exhibition of over 130 original punk flyers from the late 1970s through mid-80s either created by or utilizing the artwork of influential artist Raymond Pettibon for bands such as Black Flag, Minutemen, Sacharine Trust, Circle Jerks, Wasted Youth, Throbbing Gristle, Red Cross and Descendents. Culled from the archives of sub-culture historian, archivist and collector Bryan Ray Turcotte, these unintentional pieces of art speak to us on many levels. Not only do they afford a look at the early work of this now-legendary and highly acclaimed artist, but they also offer a glimpse into the era’s underground DIY hardcore music scene. These DIY advertisements, torn and frayed, rescued from countless telephone poles and walls, suffering staples, tape and paste are physical representations of the 20th century’s most influential music scene and its most revered artist. The exhibition will be on view until February 26, 2017 at These Days in Los Angeles. photographs by Oliver Maxwell Kupper

A Preview Of Jason Rhoades 'Installations, 1994-2006' @ Hauser Wirth And Schimmel in Los Angeles

Hauser Wirth & Schimmel presents ‘Jason Rhoades. Installations, 1994 – 2006,’ the first major Los Angeles exhibition devoted to the politically charged, darkly exuberant art of Jason Rhoades. Comprised of six major works spanning the artist’s career, this exhibition constitutes a long-overdue, comprehensive survey in his adopted city. While Rhoades’ groundbreaking installations found early recognition in Europe and New York, the artist spent the entirety of his career in Los Angeles, where he lived and worked until his untimely death in 2006 at the age of 41. The exhibition at Hauser Wirth & Schimmel is conceived to share and celebrate his unwavering vision of the world as an infinite, corpulent, and lustful universe of expressive opportunity. Assertively pushing against the safety of cultural conventions, Rhoades broke accepted rules of public nicety and expanded the frontiers of artistic opportunity through unbridled, brazenly ‘Maximalist’ works. In short, Rhoades brought the impolite and culturally unspeakable to the center of the conversation. Jason Rhoades 'Installations, 1994-2006'  will be on view until February 18, 2017 until May 21, 2017 at Hauser Wirth and Schimmel in Los Angeles. photographs by Oliver Maxwell Kupper

Watch The Debut Of Isaac Delusion's Music Video For The Track "Isabella" Directed By Nadia Lee Cohen

Isaac Delusion: "It is a very feminine song - hence why I wanted an all female cast. I wanted it to feel as though all of the women in the film could be Isabella. They are not protesting, they're just being themselves, although that could be considered rebellious now when we have such a conformist society. I wanted them to feel like this group of beautiful young carefree women; some are lovers some are friends; and we're getting a peek into their day to day life." Delusion's new album, Rust & Gold, will be out on April 7, 2017.
