Posted 8/16/15

May’s Met Gala saw many dubious fashion statements but few as controversial as Katy Perry's Moschino dress designed by Jeremy Scott, who wore a matched ensemble. Perry walked the red carpet in an off-the-runway dress from Moschino’s Fall 2015 collection, which incorporates illustrated printed elements that bear a striking similarity to a 2012 mural piece by New York artist, RIME. The mural, titled Vandal Eyes, was painted legally in Detroit, according to the subsequent lawsuit filed... [more]

Arts and Letters: Lesley Dill in Conversation  
3/30/15 Posted 3/30/15

March 2015, Brooklyn, NY: Lesley Dill works in sculpture, photography, and performance, using a range of media and methods to explore themes of language, the body, and what it means to be transformed by an experience. She recently participated in Beautiful Beast at the New York Academy of Art, an exhibition that explored the intersection of beauty and abjection through sculpture, often depicting our humanity through distortion.

Verner’s Eating Cake  
3/27/15 Posted 4/1/15

We talk with Melbourne fashion designer Ingrid Verner about embracing Australian glamour without the cultural cringe. It’s fitting that I’m writing about Ingrid Verner’s new collection, Eat Cake, from Paris. When I met with the Melbourne designer around the corner from her inner city Melbourne studio at 1000 £ Bend, I was about to visit the city of lights for the first time. We talked about the concept behind Eat Cake, which juxtaposes Parisian and Australian cultures. ... [more]

Alternative Waters: a Personal View of Recent Macri Portraits by Kenneth Radu  
12/6/14 Posted 12/6/14

Part I People familiar with Adamo Macri’s portraits may well experience an aesthetic shock to see a picture of the artist with his eyes wide open. So many of his self-portraits depict the eyes averted, lowered, askance, or rarely looking directly at the viewer that I was taken aback by a recent picture, entitled Damo, 2013. There are a few other pictures in his Facebook oeuvre wherein the artist opens his eyes and stares out of the canvas, Self-Portrait, 2013, for example, but that is... [more]

Pierre Cardin Museum Opens in Paris: A First Look   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 11/14/14

You know, call me a sucker, and tell me that I should be over these kinds of petit exercises in social one-upmanship, but I do still get a little frisson of excitement when I’m rolling around Paris with an "exclusive" invitation in my pocket. It's one of the perks of the dirty job of criticism/journalism/whatever it is you want to call what I do. The folly of such an attitude was aptly displayed last night when, after a day of only mild bragging, I arrived at the "cocktail" for the opening... [more]

Posted 10/29/14

What is it about the art world that rappers love so much? Perhaps it's the patina of glamor and luxury, the clash of low and high culture, or the opportunity to promote a shiny new ideology. Forty-one-year-old hip hop icon turned feminist philanthropist Pharrell Williams has teamed up with NY-based photographer and filmaker Ryan McGinley to shoot a new multi-ethnic campaign for Adidas Originals. The campaign, which launched yesterday, presents Pharrell and McGinley's vision of a better, more equa... [more]
