Ello: Is it Good for Artists?  
by
9/29/14 Posted 9/29/14

We hate Facebook, but we use it anyways. Its distressing “real name” policy, emotional manipulation for research and the extortion of revenue from small businesses, magazines, non-profits, etc who now must pony up in order for their posts to show in more than 10% of their own fans’ feeds has compounded to make the behemoth social network universally reviled. Unfortunately, no new social media network has come along to take its place. Along comes Ello. Last week, ironically, Twitter... [more]

Forgotten time capsule found in Boston lion sculpture  
by
9/25/14 Posted 9/25/14

via Wikimedia Commons When copper statues of a gold lion and silver unicorn were installed above Boston's Old State House in 1901, the majestic creatures weren’t the only objects left for posterity. Inside the lion’s head was a sealed copper box filled with “things that will prove interesting when the box is opened many years hence,” wrote The Boston Globe at the time. The future is now. Earlier this month the lion and unicorn sculptures—emblems representing the b... [more]

Robots Lost at Sea: Tracking an Artwork Adrift in the Atlantic Ocean  
by
9/24/14 Posted 9/24/14

On September 9th, a robot was released into the Gulf of Mexico, set adrift in the Gulf Stream. Off the southern tip of Portugal its transatlantic counterpart awaits sendoff into the strong Canary Current this week. Once offshore, these passive robots—floating spheres one-meter in diameter with sensors submerged below sea level—will be left on their own, without human intervention. Their mission: to unite in the middle of the Atlantic, carried only by currents and the forces of nat... [more]

Being John Malkovich: Artist Recreates Classic Photographs with John Malkovich's Face  
by
9/23/14 Posted 9/23/14

Sandro Miller, David Bailey / Mick Jagger "Fur Hood" (1964), 2014 Photographer Sandro Miller just face swapped 35 seminal photographs with John Malkovich's face. Get it? John Malkovich is one of the greatest actors of all time who can convincingly embody any role like no other. The only thing more shocking about seeing Malkovich's face on John Lennon's naked body is that no one has done it before. Brilliant. The forthcoming exhibition, Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich, is not just a creepy tribut... [more]

A Retreat into the Chicago of EXPO  
by
9/21/14 Posted 9/21/14

Images by Britt Julious. For perhaps the first time ever, EXPO Chicago felt like a "place to be" and a "thing to do." This writer was quite shocked to find the aisles overrun not just with budding art enthusiasts and art school kids finding themselves in the works, but with everyone else. You know, the people we neglect to consider when measuring the success of an art fair. These aren't the big spenders and thank goodness. It's always refreshing to be around the folks who don't think of art in... [more]

Business as Usual: EXPO CHICAGO Art After Hours

The Morgan Green Line stop facing West. Images by Britt Julious. Outside of the School of the Art Institute's Sullivan Galleries, I ran into Mia DiMeo, one of the publicists for EXPO CHICAGO. I told her about this column and the changes I noticed in EXPO CHICAGO last night for the Vernissage. The most noticeable change, of course, was the fact that people seemed at ease. On the second night of the EXPO CHICAGO experience for Art After Dark, that feeling was again recognizable. Mickalene... [more]

Its neighbors are trying to demolish it, but this modernist house in Raleigh, North Carolina is waging its own war... on Twitter Tweet thy neighbor as you would have her tweet you… unless she’s Gail Wiesner. Oakwood Modern House, the fun loving, Craftsman-style referencing, side-facing-front-door-having dream home of Architect/Owner Louis Cherry and his wife Marsha Gordon, has been fighting a now year-old existential battle with its traditionalist neighbor Gail Wiesner, who’...

We’re pumped to be doing our first #Instaresidency, where we hand over our Instagram to an artist for a week and let them sort out the rest. First up: digital artist and filmmaker Theodore Darst.

Pablo Picasso's 1919 Le Tricorne was removed from the Four Seasons in New York on Sunday The Picasso is safe, but it’s gone. Following lawsuits, restraining orders, and some good all around public outrage, Picasso's 1919 Le Tricorne was removed Sunday from the Four Seasons in the Park Avenue Seagram Building, where it had hung for over five decades. Using a 23-foot-long tube custom built for the project, a 20-person team from the New-York Historical Society successfully removed the maste... [more]
