History Repeating : November 21, 2016

Development: A bellicose strongman emerges from the crowded political field to assure an anxious majority in a state with self-rule that their best days are still ahead of them. They bargain away their rights in exchange.Parallel: Virtually every major city-state in ancient Greece at some point or other went through the same predictable political cycle.In the wake of Donald Trump's rise to power, a good deal of deserved attention is being paid to the prescience of Richard Rorty’s 1998 book, [Read Entire Story]

PF Collection: JANK

A few years back I lamented a lack of collected issues of JANK on the internet or otherwise. I was just looking through some boxes of zines, trying to organize and protect (potential interns I'm looking at you here) all these piles of oddly-sized and delicate items when I came across a couple of copies of JANK and thought I'd do my part by posting them for you. JANK was a house zine by Jeff Jank (above left) and Janelle Hessig (of Tales of Blarg! fame, above right). It was one sheet of letter [Read Entire Story]

Frank Gehry’s Brown Paper Bag

It has been nicknamed the Brown Paper Bag after the governor general Peter Cosgrove called it the most beautiful squashed paper bag he had ever seen at the opening of the building recently. Frank Gehry’s only building to be built in Australia is probably one of his most criticized. I haven’t spoken to anyone who likes the building yet and it really doesn’t do much for me either. As much as I want to like it, I just can’t. The Dr Chau Chak Wing Building in Sydney was built [Read Entire Story]

History Of Minorities Is Missing In American Schools. Can Theatre Help?

“It’s not like brown and non-white faces appeared on the scene recently. It’s been there for a while and it’s been part of the building of this country, which is similar to the point of Hamilton. You’re part of America, you’re part of the history.” SOURCE: AtsJournal - Read entire story here. [Read Entire Story]

¿Quién tiró la tiza?

While I was in Miami last week, a friend turned me onto this Afro-Cuban rap song about the sad state of race injustice in Cuba, where one of the planet's most racist dictatorships oppresses their people, and oppresses their African ancestry citizens even worse.The refrain goes: Who threw the chalk?That Negro Who threw the chalk?

Coming this summer to New York: legalised graffiti

Every day the NYPD's Vandal Squad chases taggers in the five boroughs, but this summer, New Yorkers will be invited to write and draw on the walls of defunct homes on Governor's Island through the fourth edition of the Writing On It All project. The project, say organisers Alexandra Chasin and Zina Goodall, aims to make participants “feel empowered and authorised to write according to their own light.” The programme started on 4 June with a session led by the Arab-American actress and writer [Read Entire Story]

Melva Bucksbaum

One of the greatest art patrons of our age, Melva Bucksbaum, passed away over the weekend. Her generosity was legendary, her passion for contemporary art contagious, and the tributes pouring in from all over are obviously very heartfelt. Few people I've had the pleasure of meeting in the art world have earned as much true admiration and respect. Beyond her tireless efforts to raise the stature of contemporary artists, Melva inspired a tremendous number of people with the incredible grace and [Read Entire Story]

175,000-Year-Old Cave Structures Suggest Neanderthals Were Quite Advanced

Measuring the Bruniquel Cave for a recent archaeo-magnetic study (© Etienne Fabre – SSAC) Sure, the 14,000-year-old cave paintings recently found in Spain are impressive, with their romping bison and horses, but a far older ancient art mystery is being untangled in France. The Bruniquel Cave in the Aveyron Valley contains two curious ringed walls that are the center of a structure formed from around 400 broken stalagmites, appearing a bit like an unhinged Urs Fischer installation. And recent [Read Entire Story]

Review: American Testimony by Peter Martens

Let me get the following out of the way first: I find Peter Martens' American Testimony infuriating, for a variety of reasons, some having to do with what is shown in the frames, some with how it is shown. I felt I needed to get this off my chest so it wouldn't just sit there, like a tightly wound coil, waiting to release its energy. The photographs in the book were taken between roughly 1970 and 1990, mostly in New York, by Martens who died in 1992. The photographer had been working on [Read Entire Story]

Wearable Sculpture Because Clothes are so Yesterday

Tired of looking like all the other sheep in boring old textile clothes? You might be interested in wearable wooden sculpture! American artist Tracy Featherstone’s wooden creations may not win any awards for comfort, in fact some are more like walking prisons than clothes, but you’ll definitely be noticed walking down the street in them. They’re the craziest, coolest things I have seen in a long while, I love them! Wood is such a neglected material in the fashion [Read Entire Story]
