Pharrell and Ryan McGinley Create New Adidas Ad Promoting Racial Equality   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

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 equal... [more]

WTF? Art-Fash Fail: The Gap's Latest Collection at Frieze   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Posted 10/14/14

It's the perfect desk fodder for all the art world haters: fresh in our inboxes this morning were images of the latest limited edition releases as part of a collaboration between smock sweatshop "long history of supporting the arts" corporation Gap Inc. and "even the name sounds like a Kanye invention" Visionaire. They have teamed up and made a "super exciting" collection, printing artworks featured in their previous issues onto sweatshirts and t-shirts. As Visionaire's co-founder Cecilia Dean... [more]

You could never decide which was your favorite ice cream,... [more]

The Other Side of Fashion Week

Congrats to my very talented friends, Salome Oggenfuss and Sandra Isacsson and their crew for their "The Other Side Of Fashion Week" documentary - a compassionate, fascinating, and amusing exploration of the offbeat, outerskirts side of Fashion Week. I've shot fashion week at Bryant Park in NYC before and always found some of the most interesting stories on the sidelines, with the quirky photographers. In a great spotlight on this film in Dazed and Confused Magazine, the fashion photographers... [more]

Andy Coolquitt at Lisa Cooley January 31st - March 9th
Posted 2/24/14

It's as if the artwork decamped from the gallery and took refuge amongst the luxury wares in the nearby designer outlet. I probably would not have noticed Andy Coolquitt’s installation in Maryam Nassir Zadeh’s hip boutique if I hadn’t been looking for it. The work’s prolix title, no I didn't go to any museums here I hate museums museums are just stores that charge you to come in there are lots of free museums here but they have names like real stores, suggests this Texas based...

Effortlessness, It’s Never Easy if You Try   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Seeking to postpone stock experiences and squeeze them all into our few days together, I avoided visiting the Tower until my mother arrived. We didn’t eat macarons at Ladurée, we didn’t get hot chocolate at Café de Flore, we didn’t jostle for selfies with La Joconde, but we went to the Tower. The visit itself is a symbolic gesture, because the symbol literally haunts no matter where you are in the world. Those curving lines, stretching skyward like a bit of pinch... [more]

Singularity in Plurality: Plural Projekt in Berlin   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Berlin’s contemporary art scene induces a headiness not recommended for those lacking stamina. We’ve only recently moved on from the monstrously huge offerings of Berlin Art Week, Berliner Liste, and Preview Berlin. Meanwhile, with its constellation of galleries – from Prenzlauer Berg to Neukölln – it sometimes feels like Berlin bequeaths a cynical gaze of see all-seen all to the regular gallery visitor with cold curatorial formations framing the city’s famous r...

The Grayson Perry Tapestry or embroidery, preferably British-made; the haunting expression of a mining-town nightclub singer doing The Green Green Grass of Home; hunting tweeds and a monocle, and the Billy-Bob™ teeth listed on their website as Megabucks AKA Tombstones; a "Class War" t-shirt; more Burberry than a soap-opera actress with a missing septum. Definitely not a big, babyish candy-pink dress if you are a man – that is Grayson's thing, and he does it best. The Matthew Sm... [more]

Above and below are a couple of photos from my fashion blog. Sharing them here is unnerving because I work quite diligently to keep my art writing and fashion blogging practices separate, but as the line between personal / professional and online /offline is increasingly blurred, I think such dileneations will become increasingly untenable. I started this project because, in the course of tyring to describe fashion blogging to others, its various tenets, minor celebrities, and petty etique... [more]

I have been thinking, lately, about the intersections between fashion and art and popular culture, ever since reading what I thought of as a particularly asinine quote from the pop star, Lady Gaga: "I really love the lyrics to ARTPOP, the title track," she told the gossip blog, Just Jared, when asked which were "the most powerful lyrics" on her latest album. “'We could belong together, ARTPOP.' The words seem really simple but it’s through the creative experiences with my friends t... [more]

A young woman strikes a subtle, learned pose in a short, flippy, drop-waist tunic made of canary-yellow and white checkerboard polyester. She faces the camera head-on with poised stillness, like a model in a live fashion presentation. The image is cropped close around her body, but visible behind her are the whitewashed brick, exposed pipes, and crooked crawlspace grate of a suburban apartment complex. The dress is a facsimile of one from the Louis Vuitton Spring 2013 ready-to-wear show. Crit... [more]

Bert Stern at La Galerie de l'Instant July 11th, 2013 - September 25th, 2013
Posted 7/23/13

This is a terrible show and I loved it. By any of the criteria by which most of the galleries I normally visit judge themselves it was, what, I don't know what to say, a joke? A disaster? A farce? As appears to be my normal approach I'm going to talk about two things, the gallery first, then I'll get on to the artist… The gallery was a mess! There was Bert Stern's work on the walls, with one or two other random photos thrown in, as well as lots of other pictures from other photographe... [more]
