Art or Not? Armory Week Special!  
by
3/6/15 Posted 3/6/15

Every week, ArtSlant invites our readers to have a chuckle at the surreal stretches of the art world: is it the artists, the concept, or the way it is marketed to us, that makes an artwork authentic?

Can you guess which of these Furbies is currently for sale by a major NYC gallery? #1 "Art’s relati... [more]

by
2/27/15 Posted 2/27/15

Shot simply and in his typical parodic style, Banksy's latest project to go viral is a short video that sees the anonymous street artist and activist enter the Gaza Strip. It is the first work the British artist has completed in the Palestinian territory, but in 2005 nine pieces of his art appeared on Israel's West Bank barrier. The two minute video is titled "Make this the year YOU discover a new destination"—a satirical reimagining of an aspirational travel ad. It ends with... [more]
