Wednesday Web Artist of the Week: Sabrina Ratté   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Posted 6/29/16

Montreal-based video artist Sabrina Ratté makes beautiful electronic environments that recall (or predict) an era where society has perfected a clinical, aesthetic beauty at the cost of fleshy emotion. That is not to say her work doesn’t inspire feelings. It affects you on a primal level because these places feel like they exist deep within our collective, aspirational unconsciousness. There is a calm spirituality and reassuring familiarity here that, ironically, often only serves to e... [more]

Wednesday Web Artist of the Week: LaTurbo Avedon   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Posted 6/15/16

The artist LaTurbo Avedon may be a computer-created avatar but she is very much alive. Her identity has been created through very real experiences and interactions over numerous websites, social platforms, and gaming consoles. The notion that there is a “real” person behind the avatar becomes increasingly meaningless as the division between all of our online and IRL identities blur and dissipate. LaTurbo Avedon’s work partly explores her personal existence as a physical/digital e... [more]

The Russian Terrorist: Petr Pavlensky   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Posted 6/13/16

And to everyone, who shares my views, I would say that we need to rethink our conception of the animal instinct of fear. Through this instinct, the power apparatus controls us and takes away our lives.[1] Thus wrote Petr Pavlensky, the so-called "mind, balls and conscience"[2] of Putin's Russia in his December 15, 2015 letter from Butyrskaya Prison to a Radio Svoboda journalist.[3] Pavlensky was detained after his November 9, 2015 aktsiya[4], titled "Threat," which consisted of lighting the...

At LA Pride, Muse Durk Dehner Talks Tom of Finland’s Popular Resurgence   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Posted 6/7/16

Meandering through West Hollywood’s crowded streets—filled with trendy boutiques, coffee shops, and upscale salons—it’s difficult to come across vestiges of the city’s queer roots. Long gentrified by high rents is a rich history ensconced in leather bars, tea rooms, sex shops, and the like. It’s a history that while obscured, is still vibrantly alive in the memory of Tom of Finland Foundation Co-founder, Durk Dehner. Since 1984, Dehner served as the official h... [more]
