GIF of the Day: Nymphomaniac on the Hogwarts Express

yesterdayArts : Art Fag City

The infamous train cruising scene from Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac Vol. 1 remains one of my all-time favorite hard-to-watch sequences in film. I'm not sure who made this GIF mashing it up with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, but it's a masterpiece of discomfort. Enjoy.

The Last Day of Disco; DUOX4Odell’s: You’ll Know If You Belong

yesterdayArts : Art Fag City

When tasked with paying tribute to a long-shuttered nightclub, Wickerham & Lomax went an unusual route. Their ambitious DUOX4Odell’s: You’ll Know if You Belong, which closes tonight in Baltimore, speaks to loss and placelessness as much as glamour. Closing Reception: April 28th, 7:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. 1723 N. Charles Street, Baltimore

The Handmaid's Train A post shared by Michael Martin (@martinized) on Apr 26, 2017 at 3:09pm PDT Basically every review of Hulu’s adaptation of The Handmaid’s Tale says the same thing: it’s a masterful piece of streaming television and scary timely. Show More Summary

NSFW GIF of the Hump Day: Faith Holland

3 days agoArts : Art Fag City

Most dicks just drip cum. Thanks to Faith Holland's inclusion in Mermaids and Unicorns, though, we now have a slightly broader vision for the organ. It can blow bubbles too. The new online show explores the imagined, fear of impermanence, death and ultimately life—a perfect match for the dick bubble blower.

GIF of the Day: Infinity Cat

last weekArts : Art Fag City

I could watch this for hours. It reminds me of one of those perpetual-motion desk ornaments (such as the clanging silver balls, pecking birds, etc...) people seemed to have on their desks a lot in 80s workplace movies or 90s guidance counselor offices. Someone needs to invent an IRL version of this cat contraption.

Pulp Friction: Deborah Castillo on Her Politically-Charged Fotonovelas

last weekArts : Art Fag City

Deborah Castillo wears a lot of hats as an artist. And wigs. Originally from Venezuela, Castillo often blurs the lines between performance, video, photography, publications and even jewelry making. What binds these endeavors together is a sharp, critical wit (usually trained on political institutions) and flair for the dramatic. Show More Summary
