Portsmouth, NH—The Museum of New Art-Portsmouth (MONA) is proud to announce its inaugural exhibition, THEREARESPACESTHATBREATHE by Markus Linnenbrink. The exhibition includes a full room site-specific installation inspired by the architectural spaces of the Museum of New Art, sculptures, paintings, works on paper and ceramics. This exhibition will be a survey presentation of the artist’s oeuvre.
The inaugural edition was a surprisingly big success. As year two kicks off, here's what to look for.
Last year, the fledgling new art fair Taipei Dangdai: Art & Ideas made mincemeat of the commonly held belief that it takes a fair a few years to build a solid art world following. The inaugural edition turned out big-name blue-chip galleries, famed global collectors (and Chinese movie stars), and, most importantly, robust sales. Oh, and yes, the fair even had its very own giant inflatable KAWS sculpture to draw in the crowds.
Speaking to the ARTnews team, German-born Linnenbrink describes the methods he employs to create his brilliantly colored drill and drip paintings, and discusses what he has learned over his thirty year career.
Markus Linnenbrink's solo exhibition is currently on view at Miles McEnery Gallery, 525 W 22nd Street, through 9 March 2019.

Not one, not two, but three. That’s the number of new buildings in downtown Miami by Arquitectonica International Corporation and the Related Group that also feature large-scale works by world-renowned artists.
SLS Lux, the latest evolution of the brand—and the most VIP—opens in the fall, with hotel rooms and residences by Yabu Pushelberg, an LED facade by Ana Martinez, and an exterior mural by Fabian Burgos. Burgos’s work appears again on Brickell Heights, a two-tower condominium bowing in May with interiors by Rockwell Group. The hotel rooms and residences in the last of the trio, SLS Brickell, are open for business. Philippe Starck handled the interiors, and Markus Linnenbrink was commissioned for the exterior, emblazoning 40,000 square feet of the concrete facade with his signature drip painting.

Visitors to a Markus Linnenbrink exhibition will find it hard to believe that the German-born artist, now a resident of Brooklyn, once favoured black and white and shunned anything chromatic – even to the point of allegedly expressing a fear of color.
Uniting painting with architecture, New York based artist MarkusLinnenbrink has transformed two exhibition spaces at the kunsthalle, nürnberg into a walk-all-over canvas. The floors, walls and ceiling of the german site have been pigmented with vibrantly-hued parallel streaks, traversing through the gallery’s rooms.The specific arrangement of the tones and their linear movement sees the line between two-dimensionality dissolve, simultaneously suggesting the idea of an endlessly expanding space. This color adaptation, which linnenbrink has titled ‘wasserscheide(desireallputtogether)’, evokes a wild and psychedelic sense of mobility, with an intensity that the viewer’s eye can hardly follow.
Even just setting your eyes upon an optical illusion can be a disorienting experience. Just imagine what it would be like to be fully engulfed within one.
That's exactly what viewers find out upon entering Markus Linnenbrink's "WASSERSCHEIDE(DESIREALLPUTTOGETHER)," which recently showed at Germany's Kunsthalle Nuernberg. Bold streaks of fuchsia, navy blue, aquamarine and yellow swallow the entire windowless museum space, locking viewers in a mind-melting display of colors gone wild. The technicolor display, although rendered in acrylic paint covered in epoxy on resin, looks as if a box of super-sized Crayola crayons overheated and exploded all at once.
