Posted 4/4/14

The red-and-white checked, anamorphic floor of Meredith James’s video installation Delmar, showing through April 13th at the Jack Hanley Gallery, primes viewers to expect a puzzle.

As a form, the triptych can be traced from the painted altarpieces of the early Renaissance to modern films. Before the now standard use of widescreen in film, Abel Gance made use of a triptych format to... [more]

Then we decided it was too easy. Well, Bush is still a bush-league painter and it looks like the joke is still on Putin. Today on the Today Show, the former president unveiled his latest series of paintings. If you thought he may have peaked early with first exhibition of dogs, you were wrong. Bush’s series of po...

War is a Drag: Saint Hoax Makes Over World Leaders as Drag Queens  
by
3/18/14 Posted 3/18/14

Vladdy Pushin' (Vladimir Putin) Shakespeare is often quoted for writing, "All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players." The statement eloquently encapsulates what Plato wrote about the stage of life a millennium prior and what social scientists would later define as "impression management," the idea that our style of dress, speaking, behavior are all merely props we use to present our "identity." In my opinion, Drag Queen RuPaul put it most succinctly: "You're born naked, th... [more]
