Dan Colen: Dead Flowers25/07/2012
Artist Dan Colen takes his latest exhibition Dead Flowers to KARMA's Amagansett location on Long Island this August. The show is comprised of three flower paintings, M&M-painted rock sculptures and a metamorphosed park bench.

Interview with Ana Kraŝ25/07/2012

Santiago Sierra: "NO", Global Tour24/07/2012
Team presents a new feature-length film by Spanish artist Santiago Sierra, the protagonist of which is Sierra's monumental sculpture of the word “NO”, constructed in a generic bolded sans serif typeface. Crossing most of Western Europe, the Eastern United States and touching down briefly in Japan, the six-foot tall, fourteen-foot wide negation distills the artist’s practice of site specific artworks into a single simple gesture adaptable to a variety of settings. As the sculpture travels, its meaning changes with its setting.
