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. 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.
  3. So Tasmania now has a renowned (at least by some) museum. The Museum of New and Old Art (MONA). This place should be on your list to visit. Check it out MONA here.
  4. 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'.
  5. 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.
  6. The the big city galleries have some great shows going this Winter/Spring.
    • MOMA -Constantin Brancusi's ScupltureThis exhibition celebrates MoMA's extraordinary holdings—11 sculptures by Brancusi will be shown together for the first time, alongside drawings, photographs, and films. A selection of never-before-seen archival materials shed light on his relationships with friends, sitters, and patrons, including this Museum. Through June 15th.

    • MOMA-PS1 - Gina Beavers - The Life I Deserve, In her visceral, vexing, often grotesque paintings, New York–based artist Gina Beavers (American, b. 1974) transforms images sourced from the Internet into painted reliefs composed from thick layers of acrylic medium. Born from the online world yet stubbornly physical, Beavers's paintings condense the ether of digital images into bodily objects that convey both sensuality and abjection. Through September 2nd.

    • The Whitney Museum of American Art - This exhibition gathers paintings from the 1960s and early 1970s that inventively use bold, saturated, and even hallucinatory color to activate perception. Drawn entirely from the Whitney's collection, Spilling Over includes important recently acquired works by Emma Amos and Kay WalkingStick, as well as paintings that entered the collection soon after they were made, by artists such as Alvin Loving, Ellsworth Kelly, Miriam Schapiro, and Frank Stella, among others. Through Summer 2019.

    • The Met - Art of Native America, This landmark exhibition in the Museum's American Wing showcases 116 masterworks representing the achievements of artists from more than fifty cultures across North America. Ranging in date from the second to the early twentieth century, the diverse works are promised gifts, donations, and loans to The Met from the pioneering collectors Charles and Valerie Diker. Through October 6th.

    • The Museum of Contemporary Art (LA) - Open House: Elliott Hundley (and various others) Beginning in spring 2019, MOCA will dedicate its downtown locations to multiple exhibitions celebrating the museum's 40th anniversary and its permanent collection. Each location will feature special exhibitions highlighting different themes and stories found within the institution's permanent collection of more than 7,000 objects. As part of this celebration, MOCA will debut a new ongoing series of exhibitions titled Open House. For the first time in its history, MOCA invites Los Angeles-based artists to organize exhibitions drawn from the museum's extensive collection of objects. MOCA will begin this new exhibition series with Open House: Elliott Hundley. Multimedia artist Elliott Hundley will explore the architecture and origins of collage, exploring how the visual and material logic of this technique has informed artists in MOCA's collection, as well as his own practice. Through September 16th.

    • Museum of Contemporty Art Chicago - Chicago Works: Jessica Campbell, The candid, often hilarious work of Chicago-based artist and cartoonist Jessica Campbell (Canadian, b. 1985) critiques the traumas and absurdities of gender politics. In her first solo museum exhibition, she re-envisions the life and artwork of twentieth-century Canadian painter Emily Carr (1871–1945) in a suite of brand-new work. Inspired by their shared roots in Victoria, British Columbia, Campbell approaches Carr's work from multiple angles and across conventional and unconventional mediums–from paintings and drawings to comics and textiles. Through July 7th.
