The Donut and the (ass)hole  
by
Mungo Thomson at Kadist Art Foundation September 17th - November 1st
Posted 9/18/14

Mungo Thompson fancies himself clever. He thinks that public affirmations of private struggle are curious, and can’t wrap his pretty little middle class head around the idea that they might be empowering. He likes Bruce Nauman’s neon spiral form… he likes the idea that it takes up a commercial vehicle to advertise non-commodity slogan. He thought it would be cute to rifle through self-help books and AA 12-step guides, pick out phrases, and pay somebody to fabricate neon spiral aff... [more]

123: A Public Transportation Vehicle and a Sociological Experiment  
by
9/5/14 Posted 9/5/14

“123 Kartal-Beşiktaş” is the name for the bus line which ended its 30-year adventure upon being cancelled in 2005. As a result of its route, it was a bus line frequented by middle class Istanbulites such as students, workers, bankers, teachers. According to the theories of the sociologist Jürgen Habermas, IETT bus corresponds to the “Sociability” model. Intercommunication within the bus is both existent and non-existent. Travellers establish a dialogue or make an eye... [more]

Gorgeous Fetish at the Asian Art Museum  
by
9/4/14 Posted 9/4/14

The other night I went to an event that combines a few of my favorite things: floral design, performance art, dance, and sex. The SF Asian Art Museum showcased the event, Evoco, performed by artists Midori, Lady Samar, and Three. This is what happened – oh yeah, and it’s all going on with intense trance music, spun by DJ Rock in the background: -Three and Lady Samar are positioned on a low stage, which is covered in flowers, in the center of a pretty big room with high ceiling...

www.trixiepitts.net Tamara De Lempicka - La Dormeuse (Kizette) I 1933 oil on panel 12.25 x 16.125 inches (31 x 41 cm) Well, it’s that time of year again! I love going to the auction previews. Although the work may not be the artists’ total finest, it’s great to to see works that are not usually available to the public. I enjoy seeing things that may not be ever seen again. I am not really a Tamara De Lempicka fan. The straight severe edges and exactitude are not my cup of t... [more]

Author Deb Lawrence Studio Shot, Deb Lawrence, “You don’t know how paralyzing that is, that stare of a blank canvas…but the blank canvas is afraid of the real, passionate painter who dares and who has broken the spell of `you can’t’ once and for all.” -Vincent van Gogh, 1884 Not sure what the disease is called, but I definitely have the bug. Like the kid who’s more interested in pebbles on the ground than animals at the zoo, I view life th... [more]

Posted 11/27/13

Despite its prime Potsdamer Platz location in one of the busiest and most central areas of Berlin, the Daimler Collection remains a bit of a secret, brilliantly hidden in plain sight. To find it one must avoid getting sucked into the nearby shopping mall, multiplex theatre, or one of the uncountable restaurants. Look for Haus Huth, the only remaining historical building at Potsdamer Platz. A doorman will let you in. Take the elevator to the top and you’ll suddenly find yourself in a quiet s... [more]

  In 1968 the Ghanaian author Ayi Kwei Armah published a brutal and visceral novel of (then) contemporary, post-Inde­pendent Ghana, titled “The Beautyful Ones Are Not Yet Born”. Armah recounts an unnamed man’s struggle in a soci­ety rotten to the core, a result of the aftermath of colonial­ism, and the failures of the new regime. A dream deferred… The exhibition The Beautyful Ones takes as its starting point Armah’s utopian lament for a better Africa, and the ongoing problematics of the repres... [more]
