Three Shows: Olafur Eliasson, Alice Neel and Romare Bearden

3 weeks agoArts : Art Fag City

A few thoughts on Olafur Eliasson, Alice Neel and Romare Bearden. TLDR: See Romare Bearden at DC Moore Gallery before it closes this Saturday.

Wednesday Links: NFL Builds a Fake Museum

3 weeks agoArts : Art Fag City

We haven’t read much about the Hulu adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s masterpiece The Handmaid’s Tale, but based on this review it looks like it’s going to be good and deeply disturbing. [ Entertainment Weekly ] Apparently the NFL has built a fake Philadelphia Museum of Art in front of the real Philadelphia Museum of Art for a televised event. Show More Summary

100 days in with President Trump and this armadillo pretty much sums up where I'm at.

This Week’s Must-See Art Events: Teach-ins, Yoni Eggs, Cemetery Secrets, and More

4 weeks agoArts : Art Fag City

It's a bit of a slow week for the art world, but that's just fine by us. There are a handful of events we're really looking forward to this week and those will be much better enjoyed without the stress of darting around to a dozen other openings. Show More Summary

GIF of the Day: Infinity Cat

last monthArts : 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 monthArts : 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

Friday Links: Terrible Hippo in Tutu Sparks No Public Art Controversy

last monthArts : Art Fag City

Artist Hannah Rothstein imagines a bleak future for America's National Parks in a series of WPA style posters. Set in 2050, these parks will all be ravaged by the effects of climate change. This, of course, assumes they make it that long. Show More Summary

GIF of the Day: Freddie Smithson

I looked at this GIF from Freddie Smithson today while hungry, and now have visions of a rapture in which we are taken by the carb gods to a better planet.

last monthArts : Art Fag City

Unless you've been un-living under a tombstone, you know Art F City's Goth Benefit took over the dungeon of Collapsable Hole Tuesday night. It's an evening few of us will forget. Just in case we do, however, photographer Liz Ligon was there to document it thoroughly. Show More Summary

Thursday Links: Get Your £1,705 IKEA Shopping Bag by Balenciaga

last monthArts : Art Fag City

Balenciaga has released a "knockoff" of those blue IKEA shopping bags... which costs £1,705. The peculiar logic of late capitalism keeps the LOLs coming. [Dezeen] Peter Garritano photographs New Yorkers he meets through Craigslist's "Strictly Platonic" friend-seeking section. Show More Summary

Set up For Your Best Year Aver: A Tax Day How-To

last monthArts : Art Fag City

Here we are at Tax Day. Your taxes are filed. (They aren’t? Here’s an IRS extension form - postmark it today. You’ll need one for your state, too.) Last year you vowed to get your stuff in order. Then suddenly the tax deadline was upon you, and you scrambled through the process, and weren’t as careful as you intended to be. Show More Summary

GIF of the Day: Getting Ready for Tomorrow Night

last monthArts : Art Fag City

How excited are we for our Goth Benefit tomorrow night? So excited I've been practicing black lipstick application all day (pro tip: put down smudgeproof liquid eyeliner as lipliner first, then blend inward with your lipstick or pencil and top it with a gloss). Remember, get your tickets in advance!

Video of the Day: Cyprien Gaillard

last monthArts : Art Fag City

I remember watching this video by Cyprien Gaillard at the New Museum's first Triennial Younger Than Jesus and being a little ashamed of myself thinking the violence looked so natural and beautiful. Part of that feeling comes from the...Show More Summary

Thursday Links: Sleep With All of Earth’s History

last monthArts : Art Fag City

So, after reporting on art at the New York Times for 12 years, Randy Kennedy is moving  to Hauser & Wirth as Director of Special Projects. A couple of WTFs here. First, this sucks, because it almost certainly means a reduction of arts coverage at the Times. Show More Summary

NSFW GIF of the Hump Day: Dick Eye Makeup Tutorial

last monthArts : Art Fag City

It seems like a lot of the gay internet consists of videos of dicks or makeup tutorials. So perhaps it makes unlikely sense that makeup artist Marion Moretti would synthesize her target demographic's interests into one ridiculous concept. Introducing dick eyes: (after the jump)
