Vincent Lamouroux at Please Do Not Enter > Los Angeles
April 26th - May 10th
Posted 5/4/15

A gaggle of young adults dressed to the nines on a street corner in Silver Lake, CA, is not an uncommon occurrence. It probably happens every day for some reason or another. It’s not so common, however, when the entire street corner itself is also dressed up. At the intersection of Bates and Sunset, you can see an entire block coated in white wash. The former Bates Motel and its surroundings, including fences, barbed wire, palm trees, and shrubbery, are all covered in an organic, lime-ba... [more]

Art or Not?

Art or Not? You thought you had the art world sussed, but every once in a while it chucks you a curve ball. Sometimes art can seem like a joke. What if we took away the jargon—is the artwork still an artwork? What if we attribute those words to a different image? Every week, we ask our readers to play a game of guess who, and enjoy moment of irreverance in an often too-serious art world... What's the difference between a simple pocket organizer and a pricey painting in a gallery? See below... [more]

4/30/15 Posted 4/30/15

Northwest Florida's little know Digital Graffiti Festival at Alys Beach has just announced its 27 artist line-up for its 8th edition taking place in 2015. Digital Graffiti (creating graffiti using computer software and technology) is a relatively undeveloped field, surprising considering the surge of interest in both graffiti and digital arts practices respectively. The festival elicits participants come from the fields of film, art, and music who project their art on site at Alys Beach, a luxury devel... [more]

April 24th - April 25th
Posted 4/29/15

I entered the small, unassuming gallery space as a bearded head popped out from the back of the room and said, “Are you here to get your MFA?” “Yes!” I replied cheerfully. Because I was. I read that I could get an MFA in just one day at the Tenderloin Institute of Art, hosted by SFAQ, and I was immediately on board. If showing up was the application process, I was already excelling with flying colors. The man introduced himself as Dean Jeremiah Jenkins, and together... [more]

Adel Gorgy's work in Issues at Arts Guild New Jersey Contemporary art and social activism often swim in the same waters.

Issues, an exhibition in which a group of contemporary artists respond to political, social, racial, gender, and economic issues facing the world in recent years opened M... [more]

New York based French photographer Carine Magescas’ minimal seascapes are inspired by the vast open beaches of California. Something that first attracted me to Carine Magescas’ beautiful photographic works was their overwhelming sense of calm and openness. As a fellow beach-lover and appreciator of vast open spaces - Carine became submerged by the immenseness of the... [more]

Sam Rolfes, RareGIF No.40130612, 2015 Animated gif. During the Cold War the CIA secretly promoted Abstract Expressionism at home and abroad as evidence of the United States’ intellectual freedom and cultural prowess. By exporting modern art—offered as a counter-narrative to Socialist Realism—the country engaged in a complex, not to mention expensive, branding exercise, long before the term “branding” entered common use. The twentieth century strategy of creatin... [more]
