It's 85 degrees out right now, but we might as well admit it's not summer any more. All of which is to say, it's time to get back to work. As such, we'll be resuming limited posting next week. By that I mean you can expect the blog to...Show More Summary
We're taking a short break for the month of August so we can plan for the new season. We've got a lot up our sleeves and we can't wait to tell you about it. Look for us in September for some big announcements. See you then!
Watching the heinous dumpster fire that is the American news these days, sometimes it's nice to reminisce about a more innocently crispy orange-faced villain from the news cycle's simpler times. Remember Patricia Krentil, a.k.a Tan Mom?...Show More Summary
In his final L.A. Art Diary post, Michael Anthony Farley explains why he can't live in Los Angeles, even though everyone else is these days.
Donald Trump, who has the drawing ability of a seven year old, produced a drawing of the New York City Skyline that sold for close to $30,000. It was originally made for a charity event in 2005. The drawing is without a doubt the worst presidential drawing we’ve ever seen, and possibly the worst drawing by an adult. Show More Summary
Let's not sugarcoat this week—the news has been terrible from start to finish, even though the Democrats have had some victories. So let's take a break and spend some time with the beloved bear cam before Trump's pick to head the Environmental Protection Agency, Scott Pruitt, pulls the plug on this too.
Probably the most salacious news broke late yesterday and has nothing to do with art. Trump's new Director of Communications, Anthony Scaramucci, called up the New Yorker's Ryan Lizza, talked about killing leakers, firing his entire department to get the leakers, and described Steve Bannon, the White House's Chief Strategist, as a cock sucker.

Congratulations to Lorna Mills for having her gif featured on Wonkette and captioned appropriately, "Clusterfuckery. Heinous clusterfuckery most foul." Hard to imagine a more fitting GIF for the political stories as of late, though I wish this one involved just a tad more ass fucking. Then it would be perfect.
Photographer Paul Raftery has documented the bizarre architecture of Kazakhstan’s post-Soviet capital Astana. The city looks like a weird low budget sci-fi show’s CGI landscapes brought to life. [ Dezeen ] BienalSur, a new biennial organized...Show More Summary
This is a GIF of a guy in a dick costume riding a bicycle. I'm not sure there's much to say about this beyond the fact that the dick is pedalling with its scrotum. Cue the "Cremaster Cycle" jokes.
The Marciano Art Foundation has been the biggest pleasant surprise of 2017. As I've mentioned on the blog before, the new museum, funded by the GUESS Jeans fortune, delivers big-time with site-specific special projects from Jim Shaw and Ryan Trecartin and Lizzie Fitch. Show More Summary
Every city should have an Andrew James Paterson. Pity we cannot clone him. Since the late 70s, Toronto-based Paterson has produced a mountain’s worth of material in a mountain range long list of disciplines: from seminal New Wave music...Show More Summary

By Valery Hache/Agence France-Presse — Getty Images [h/t The New York Times][/caption] The latest news from the surreal hellscape that is our nation’s government is that Trump is banning transgender people from the military.

If you spend enough time looking for a "GIF of the Day" several days a week, you're bound to stumble down some weird rabbit holes online. Trust me, I have seen many a GIF that cannot be unseen. By comparison to so many GIF repositories out there, the originally-titled German GIF website "animated-animations.de" is fairly innocuous. Show More Summary
I’m taking a brief summertime break from my AFC column in order to direct the summer programming at “camp mom.” I will be back in the new season with more tips and advice on taxes and personal finance for creative economy workers. In the meantime, in honor of all the AFC working artist parents out there, here’s a post on the tax credit that applies to summer camp.
Following up on our Shark Week coverage, the Discovery Channel aired their “race” of 500 time Olympic Gold Medalist Michael Phelps swimming against a Great White Shark, and people are pissed. Obviously, they weren’t going to put Phelps in the water with a shark, but I at least thought there would be a shark. Show More Summary
Super Micro Paint is a web app that simulates doodling and animation from an alternate timeline in the 1990s. Basically, it's a GIF maker that can make simple drawings resemble lego blocks, stained glass, LED lights, LCD lights and more. Show More Summary
We're looking at another slow events week, which frankly is a needed change of pace from the insanity the art world puts us through nine months out of the year. I say this because "slow" means there are just enough awesome events for a person to actually see all of them. Show More Summary
Season 2 of Stranger Things starts in October and the trailer is out. Holy. Crap. I don’t know if my post-internet self is designed to wait this long for anything. Related: Strange Genitals. [The Internet] Bubbles the chimpanzee, famous...Show More Summary
