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

2 months agoArts : 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)

Wednesday Links: AI Bob Ross, SNL Does Art Criticism

2 months agoArts : Art Fag City

Will we ever get tired of how weird AI “deep dream” is? Alexander Reben has been feeding episodes of The Joy of Painting with Bob Ross into the neural net. Predictably, his hair gets even stranger. [ IFL Science ] Art Cologne is in talks to absorb abc fair, launching Art Berlin in its place. Show More Summary

GIF of the Day: Aja Untucked

2 months agoArts : Art Fag City

RuPaul's Drag Race never ceases to entertain. This season is a little weird, though, right? It seems like an awful lot of drama (even by both reality TV and drag standards) directed at seemingly inoffensive people. Case and point: last week's episode of Untucked. Show More Summary

This Week’s Must-See Art Events: Arctic Performances and Rooftop Sculptures

2 months agoArts : Art Fag City

This is a bit of a slow week in New York's art world. That's a good thing, because everyone will need their energy for our goth party next week. Nevertheless, we managed to track down at least one art outing per day that looks promising. Show More Summary

2 months agoArts : Art Fag City

Today—April 10, 2017—is Leon the replicant’s “incept date” from Blade Runner. Weird. [ Gizmodo ] Indonesian artist Ardian Syaf is facing “disciplinary action” from Marvel after he inserted political/religious messages into a recent X-Men issue. Show More Summary

GIF of the Day: Disobedient Router

2 months agoArts : Art Fag City

I stumbled across "Disobedient Router" on the Tumblr Pushpin Universe, and boy can I relate. Unstable wifi has to be the biggest pet peeve of my daily existence. I would hope that when my wifi router is being disobedient and not doing its job, it's at least having this much fun.

2 months agoArts : Art Fag City

2 months agoArts : Art Fag City

As a New Yorker, much of my conception of California is filtered through films and TV. At least recently with the popularity of HBO’s Little Big Lies and the continued guilty pleasure of the Real Housewives franchise, California looks like it’s made up of big houses, bigger drama and staggering affluence.

Las Vegas is trying for a contemporary art museum… again. The city has had two art museums come-and-go in recent history. [ Las Vegas Review Journal ] Choreographer Ann Carlson has found herself in the crosshairs of conservatives over her seemingly inoffensive project “Doggie Hamlet”. Show More Summary

GIF of the Day: Women Happy in the Rain Photo Puzzle

2 months agoArts : Art Fag City

I found this extremely cheesy (but weather-appropriate) GIF from a website that looks kinda like a stock-photo-style GIF depository. I'm not going to link to that website, because it immediately filled my computer with pop-up ads and crashed it. Show More Summary

2 months agoArts : Art Fag City

Last week, Paddy Johnson sent out an email promising free Goth Opera tickets to anyone with enough goth cred to have had a rib removed in the name of corsetry. Much to our delight, artist Jillian McDonald took us up on the offer.
