B.A.N.Y.C. CALENDAR :: LONDON :: GREY AREA ART SHOW

Can’t wait for the Hallows’ Eve to indulge your theoretical vices? Opening next week at Shizaru Gallery in London’s Mayfair, GREY AREA is curating a shop of art objects titled BAD FOR ME to complement BAD FOR YOU, an exhibition curated by Beth Rudin DeWoody.

 

The exhibition examines the human relationship with what is ʻbadʼ through examples like drugs, alcoholism, gambling, materialism, vanity, and cigarettes. At once humorous and grim, the art and objects in these shows avoid judgment and allow the consumer to draw their own conclusions. If you’re in town for Frieze, join us for a private preview on Tuesday, October 9 from 6:30-8:30 PM. The exhibition continues October 10 – November 23 in London and online.

 

Following the theme of the vice made nice, all the pieces at GREY AREA tackle a different instrument of iniquity making them seductive, amusing or even wearable. Cuddle with a soft bad habit by MEGAN WHITMARSH. Then savor a chocolate sculpture by VADIS TURNER or a resin-cast pill set by RAY GEARY. Pills, guns, blood, and cigarettes; you name it we have it. Just don’t expect any on-site psychiatrists.

B.A.N.Y.C. ALUM :: SHANTELL MARTIN :: NIKE

The Art & Sole Cortez iD Project

Four artists, four special edition Art & Sole covers, and four fresh Nike Cortez sneakers. The Art & Sole Cortez iD project celebrates both the release of a new mini-edition Art & Sole book and the launch of the classic Nike Cortez silhouette on NIKEiD.com.

Intercity have commissioned four artists, Jiro Bevis, Shantell Martin, Matthew Nicholson and Rose Stallard to create an artwork for one of four limited Art & Sole book covers. Working with different media; print, moving image, sculpture and sneaker-art respectively, each artist’s cover work has been packaged alongside a pair of color-coordinated Art & Sole Cortez sneakers.

The artists’ brief was simply to interpret the Cortez sneaker using a specifically assigned color – red, blue, green or magenta – which correlates to the category-signifying contents dots in Art & Sole. The Cortez was one of the first icons of running. To celebrate its 40th anniversary the brief also requested a response to the ‘history of running’.

The color green has been represented by visual artist Shantell Martin, who chose to start her piece with a green dot which represents the atom; ‘a basic unit of matter that consists of a dense central nucleus surrounded by a cloud of negatively charged electrons’. This atom is one very tiny part of the Nike Cortez shoe that is discovered and then in turn taken on a journey to find the origin of its name. Once observed the atom slowly returns to its original singular form.
