Copyright Contention Continued: Another Graffiti Artist Sues Fashion House

by Kimberly B. Johnson
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 was painted legally in Detroit, according to the subsequent lawsuit filed by RIME, who is... [more]

Arts and Letters: Lesley Dill in Conversation

by Lee Ann Norman
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. I am always interested in work that defies disciplinary boundaries and convention, and Dill’s... [more]

Pierre Cardin Museum Opens in Paris: A First Look

by James Loks
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 of... [more]

Pharrell and Ryan McGinley Create New Adidas Ad Promoting Racial Equality

by ArtSlant Team
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... [more]

WTF? Art-Fash Fail: The Gap's Latest Collection at Frieze

by Philippa Snow , Charlotte Jansen
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]

Lowbrow Stuff in a Vitrine

by Alison Kuo
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, , suggests this Texas based artist has had enough high culture, and indeed it looks like he may have scavenged a thrift shop to build his installation. no I didn’t go to any museums here... is the first of a series of...

Effortlessness, It’s Never Easy if You Try

by Christina Catherine Martinez
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 pinched and pulled-up landscape, are... [more]

Singularity in Plurality: Plural Projekt in Berlin

by S V Km
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 ragtag approach to art. Conceived... [more]
