  11. Superchief Gallery was featured in Interview Magazine:

    "Included in Superchief’s impressive rolodex is Swoon, who deserves considerable praise for staying faithful to the young curators after her highly celebrated crashing of the Venice Biennial as well as her massively successful installation at the Brooklyn Museum.

    Like Swoon herself, Zipco and Dunleavy are extremely careful not to lose sight of their roots on the street. In fact, their move to L.A. seems to be less a detour or a simple change of scenery, and more of a conscious shedding of their recently garnered credibility as “serious curators” in New York City.

    Their shunning of this title is not to diminish their professionalism—the boys have proven themselves to be highly responsible editors and gallery directors, often times despite their best efforts (a section of their magazine is titled “Smoke Weed to This”)—but rather to celebrate why people make art to begin with; to have fun, to express the frustrations of everyday life, to process inner struggles with sexuality or addiction, and let us not forget, to fight the power.”

    And now, we take a moment to blush.

    Our full appreciation and respect to everyone who’s with us- its been love at first sight and our family is getting bigger on the daily.

  12. Lil Kool in Hong Kong last month! Superchief Gallery LA will be hosting Lil Kool in residency for October 2014 and presenting his first LA solo show!

    "Joyce invited Brooklyn-based artist Josh Maupin aka LilKool to launch its first project “Downtown America” with a series of hand-painted murals. Visitors to the space will get the chance to see him at work transforming the space with his signature cartoon style influenced by graffiti, music, fashion and the Internet.

    The artist will also be offering a selection of customized one-of-a-kind vintage clothing pieces, many of which have been sourced from Joyce’s various collections. For those in the area, the exhibition is open until May 30.”

  13. EMPIRIA: Work by Kajahl Benes, Miguel Ovalle, and Esteban Del Valle. (Curated by Coby Kennedy)

    COBY KENNEDY was behind one of the most talked about pieces of the BLACK POWER show at Superchief in April; assault rifle vending machines which depicted the role of corporate business in the perpetuation of urban violence and the practice of social genocide, realized as full size commercial vending machines perpetuating urban violence for profit.

    EMPIRA is a work of his curation, featuring three artists of his choosing who create their own interpretations of reality who explore the themes of lost and found history, and the building of a mythology.

    KAJAHL BENES was born and raised in Santa Cruz, CA. He lives and works in Brooklyn, New York, where he creates works such as “The Fresh Prince of North Utla”, which play on religious and historical imagery with an irreverent tone, while remaining visually rich in color and detail.

    MIGUEL OVALLE, aka DIZMOLOGY, is an artist who specializes in painting, sculpture, drawings, photography, graphics, jewelry, and typography – but always coming back to graffiti, the central visual driving force in his work. Often, his work will have the best characteristics of any mural, no matter the size of the work; sprawling, involving, ambitiously and meticulously laid out designs.

    Originally from Chicago, IL, ESTEBAN DEL VALLE is an interdisciplinary artist currently living and working in Brooklyn who’s work ranges from photographs, to design, to large-scale paintings and installations. Often, his work meshes together different mediums in a disorienting living collage, a theme that runs through his work.

     
     
  14. Superchief Gallery NYC is proud to present 2014’s Summer Season Ultra Mega Group Show

    In 2013, we did seasonal, massive, salon-style mega-group exhibits, featuring both artists that we have shown before and new artists that we are excited about. The show would inarguably be sensory overload, with art hung from floor to ceiling.

    The idea of the show is to offer a seasonal opportunity to catch up with artists that we are psyched on, give a chance to a talented young artist who we think could use it, and exhibit friends next to other friends, so they can be friends- because thats what its about. 

    In 2014, we’re putting all of our seasonal aspirations into one show- our SUMMER SEASON ULTRA MEGA GROUP SHOW.

    We’ll be having fam DJs doing short sets through the whole damn nite starting at 6pm and going til 10pm.

    i say damn damn goddamn.

    We’re incredibly proud to show you whats new.
