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, Rhizome, 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 -Robert Rauschenberg: Among Friends, When Rauschenberg launched his career in the early 1950s, the heroic gestural painting of Abstract Expressionism was in its heyday. Often working in collaboration with artists, dancers, musicians, and writers, he invented new interdisciplinary modes of artistic practice that helped set the course for art of the present day. Robert Rauschenberg: Among Friends , the first 21st-century retrospective of the artist, presents over 250 works across mediums from his six-decade career. Through September 17th.

    • MOMA -Frank Lloyd Wright at 150: Unpacking the Archive, Marking the 150th anniversary of the American architect's birth on June 8, 1867, MoMA presents Frank Lloyd Wright at 150: Unpacking the Archive , a major exhibition that critically engages his multifaceted practice. The exhibition comprises approximately 450 works made from the 1890s through the 1950s, including architectural drawings, models, building fragments, films, television broadcasts, print media, furniture, tableware, textiles, paintings, photographs, and scrapbooks, along with a number of works that have rarely or never been publicly exhibited. Through October 1st.

    • The New Museum -Carol Rama: Antibodies, This is the first New York museum survey of the work of Italian artist Carol Rama (b. 1918, Turin, Italy–d. 2015, Turin, Italy) and the largest presentation of her work in the US to date. The exhibition will bring together over one hundred of her paintings, objects, and works on paper, highlighting her consistent fascination with the representation of the body. Through September 10th.

    • The New Museum -Lynette Yiadom-Boakye: Under-Song For A Cipher, In this second major exhibition, the New Museum presents artist Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, a 2013 Turner Prize finalist and one of the most renowned painters of her generation. For this solo exhibition, Yiadom-Boakye has created seventeen new works and conceived of a painted environment specific to the Fourth Floor Gallery. With these paintings, Yiadom-Boakye further establishes her distinctive approach, which embraces many of the conventions of historical European portraiture but expands on that tradition by featuring purely fictional subjects. Through September 3rd.

    • San Fransico MOMA - Mike Mandel: Good 70s, - Good 70s explores the tongue-in-cheek, socially engaged work of conceptual artist and photographer Mike Mandel (American, b. 1950), focusing on projects he made during what was, for him, an incredibly productive decade. This exhibition includes photographs, books, and a film, all made during the same period he was collaborating with his friend, the photographer Larry Sultan Through August 20th.

    • LA County Museum of Art - HOME — So Different, So Appealing, - Organized in collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, HOME — So Different, So Appealingem> features U.S. Latino and Latin American artists from the late 1950s to the present who have used the deceptively simple idea of "home" as a powerful lens through which to view the profound socioeconomic and political transformations in the hemisphere. Spanning seven decades and covering art styles from Pop Art and Conceptualism to "anarchitecture" and "autoconstrucción," the artists featured in this show explore one of the most basic social concepts by which individuals, families, nations, and regions understand themselves in relation to others. In the process, their work also offers an alternative narrative of postwar and contemporary art. Through October 15th.
