The New York-based art venue Spoke NYC will be presenting ‘Helikon’, a new solo exhibition featuring the works of the legendary San Francisco-based artist Chuck Sperry. The show will not only have on display a new set of screen printed posters from his ongoing ‘Muses’ series, but will also have a selection of rare gig posters from the artist’s personal collection.

In addition to the these, a new monograph titled ‘Helikon’ will make its debut at the exhibition. The book will be a fascinating compendium of the artist’s works over the years, which — with their psychedelic art nouveau style — have garnered him legions of raving fans.

Sculptor Kevin Titzer (previously featured here and here) was born and raised in Evansville, Indiana, but moved to Quebec, Canada a few years ago. Though his works have been exhibited numerous times in the United States and Canada, ‘Hinterland’ – his ongoing show at the Galerie d’Art la Corniche – is his Quebec debut.

The theme of the show is about his experiences and adjustments moving from one country and it’s culture to another. Titzer says that there is a puppetry aesthetic that runs throughout the exhibit, and visitors were encouraged to play and interact with two functional ventriloquist dummies during the opening. Like most of his other sculptures, Titzer used carved wood, found objects and recycled materials to create them.

Voyage – An Art Installation of 300 Illuminated Paper Boats

Winter-Lights-2013-3

A grand flotilla of 300 illuminated paper boats have invaded Middle Dock in Canary Wharf, London. Titled “Vovage,” the interactive installation is the brainchild of Aether & Hemera, an artistic partnership between architect Claudio Benghi and lighting artist Gloria Ronchi. The paper boats light up from within in an ever-changing and riotous display of colors and patterns, whenever someone with a mobile phone comes in range of them.

People who are passing by can interact with the boats to change colors and patterns. This can be done by connecting their mobile devices to the Voyage Wi-Fi network, opening the web browser, going to voyage.co.uk and following the instructions on the site.

The installation, commissioned for Canary Wharf Group’s award-winning public art program, will be on show until 15 February, 2012,  with the lights coming on before dusk until 2am.
