The new Morbid Anatomy Museum opens this weekend with a book release party on Saturday, April 26th. For seven years, Morbid Anatomy has seen thousands of visitors, both online and in their 300 square foot library in the Gowanus. The new museum space is a new 4,200 square foot non-profit institution dedicated to the exhibition of artifacts and ideas which fall between the cracks of high and low culture, art and science, beauty and death. Can’t get much cooler than that!
New Exhibit: The Gay 90′s: West
Mark Ryden’s The Gay 90′s: West (his new solo show) will finally open at the freshly overhauled Kohn Gallery.
Exhibit Preview: Among The Missing
Partners and recent collaborators, Maja Ruznic and Joshua Hagler (above) will be exhibiting paintings together for the first time, in their two-person exhibition entitled Among The Missing.
We visited the preview of the new Super Awesome: Art and Giant Robot exhibition at OMCA in Oakland last night and are pleased to be able to share some photos of the fabulous art and ambiance. Many artists contributed work to this large show comprised of fine art, cartoons to graphic novels, sculpture, murals, large-scale installations, skateboards, collections, robots, lunch boxes, doodles, flyers and much, much more…
Foto Fix: Alma Haser
In her series Cosmic Surgery, UK artist Alma Haser uses origami as integral props and elements in her final imagery. Haser photographs her sitter, then prints multiple images of the subjects’ face and folds them into a complicated origami construction, which is then placed back onto the original face of the portrait. Finally, the whole scene is re-photographed. The fantastic outcome is a surreal modular twist on anatomy with startling and simple beauty.

Austrian street artist, Nychos is recognized world wide for his unique style with distinct anatomical explosions as subject matter.
