Some Of Our Favorite Links

 

  1. This link is getting a bit dated. But we love Carmel, Indiana (pronounced like the candy wouldn't you know). In 2012 it was voted America's best place to live! Read how rich white people select a city full of rich white people as where they'd like most to live.
  2. Some favorite places to unwind and think are 4Chan, Found Magazine, Life Hacker, CllickHole......
  3. Arfie's pick of the show. This is the grand daddy of all of the West Highland clubs founded by old Colonel Malcolm of Poltalloch himself. Somewhat elitist in its membership - one needs nominated and seconded by a club member. Anyone that can help Arfie get in should send us an email.
  4. Over 77,000 people attened 2016's Art Basel show in Miami Beach. The show was depressing and drab. Yes, the big name galleries were still there pushing the year's hot 'art' which tended to have strong (anti)-Trump flavors. Kendrick Lemar led the list of after hours party performers who debased themselves for the mostly rich Republican collectors. It was big art in a big convention center. If they held it in Boise, no one would have known the difference (assuming Boise has a convention center of course). If you are interested in the 2017 show, check out the Art Basel website for more details. We probably won't be there.
  5. So Tasmania now has a renowned (at least by some) museum. The Museum of New and Old Art (MONA). It is on our list to visit. Check it out MONA here.
  6. Olia Lianlina was a pioneering NetArt creator. She still is one of the greatest. Her website is filled with wonderful NetArt. Check out Teleportacia here. Read Lianlina's essay Turing Complete User. It is a thought provoking discussion on the role and definition of a computer 'user'.
  7. One of Miami's most exhuberant places is the Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM). Located of Biscayne Ave in Museum Park this beautiful place always as something going on. The prices are cheap ($12-$16) and admission is free the second Saturday of each month. If you live here go and go often. If you are visiting, it will be a highlight of your trip. Checkout their current programs at PAMM.
  8. The the big city galleries have some great shows going this Winter/Spring.
    • MOMA -Max Ernst: Beyond Painting, This exhibition surveys the career of the preeminent Dada and Surrealist artist Max Ernst (French and American, born Germany, 1891–1976), with particular emphasis on his ceaseless experimentation. Featuring approximately 100 works drawn from the Museum's collection, the exhibition includes paintings that challenged material and compositional conventions; collages and overpaintings utilizing found printed reproductions; frottages (rubbings); illustrated books and collage novels; sculptures of painted stone and bronze; and prints made using a range of techniques.

    • Leslie Lohman Museum of Gay & Lesbian Art -BARBARA HAMMER: Evidentiary Bodies, Evidentiary Bodies is a multifaceted exhibition-project that delves into the life's work and resonating impact of lesbian feminist artist and filmmaker Barbara Hammer. The project encompasses exhibitions, a publication, performances, readings, and an extensive film program at various locations across New York City. Through January 28th.

    • The Met Breuer -Raghubir Singh: Modernism On The Ganges, This exhibition traces the full trajectory of Singh's career from his early work as a photojournalist in the late 1960s through his last unpublished projects of the late 1990s. Using a handheld camera and color slide film, he recorded India's dense milieu in complex frieze-like compositions teeming with incident, fractured by reflections, and pulsating with opulent color. Singh was also deeply influenced by the work of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Bengali filmmaker Satyajit Ray, and American street photographers such as William Gedney and Lee Friedlander. As he traveled along his own artistic path, Singh forged a distinctively Indian style of modernist photography that stands, as he put it, "on the Ganges side of modernism." Through January 2nd.

    • The New Museum -Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon, Gender as a Tool and a Weapon investigates gender's place in contemporary art and culture at a moment of political upheaval and renewed culture wars. The exhibition features an intergenerational group of artists who explore gender beyond the binary to usher in more fluid and inclusive expressions of identity. Through January 21st.

    • The Museum of Contemporary Art - Anna Maria Maiolino - MOCA is pleased to present Anna Maria Maiolino, the Brazilian artist's first major United States museum retrospective. This large-scale survey will cover Maiolino's extraordinary oeuvre from the early 1960s to the present, bringing together expressive woodblock prints, visceral cement sculptures, politically-charged films and performances, fluid drawings, and monumental installations of unfired clay. Visitors will chart a path through Brazilian art history and many of the major postwar movements, channeled through Maiolino's intimate and subjective practice exploring her identity as a migrant, mother, and global citizen. Through January 22nd.

    • LA County Museum of Art - Chagall: Fantasies for the Stage, - This exhibit highlights the principal role that music and dance played in Chagall's artistic practice. The performing arts were a significant source of inspiration for Chagall throughout his long career: he depicted musicians in many of his paintings, collaborated on set designs for the Ballet Russes in 1911, created murals and theatrical productions for the Moscow State Jewish Theater in the 1920s, and designed costumes and monumental sets for ballet and opera in the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s. Through January 7th.
