ARTIST TALK: HENRY ROLLINS x PHARRELL WILLIAMS

April 3, 2013  |  Culture  |  Comments Off

Needless to say, young Pharrell is more than a little outgunned in this artist discussion with legendary Black Flag frontman and punk icon Henry Rollins, but it's fun to watch the two dig in. Luckily, the topic of conversation never turns to wanton hedonism, conspicuous consumption, or overt consumerism, but hey, why would it?...

MUST-SEE: “DAVID BOWIE IS…” AT THE VICTORIA & ALBERT MUSEUM, LONDON

Easily the most influential chameleon in rock history, David Bowie's storied career has seen him inhabit more personas than an accomplished schizophrenic, and at age 66, release a new album last month that debuted at #1 on iTunes and on UK record charts. The foremost arbiter of rock style and fashion at every generational and cultural pivot point, Bowie's avant-garde futurism and absolute abhorrence of stasis has seen him generate a massive archive of personal artifacts, that, despite years of massive chemical intake and general debauchery, he had the presence of mind to preserve in an institutional grade archive (complete with its own full-time dedicated archivist) for posterity. It is from this incredible collection that London's Victoria & Albert Museum assembled its current blockbuster visual retrospective of Bowie's life & times, titled, appropriately enough, "David Bowie Is..."

Few things could be more of a surefire mega-moneymaker for art world puppet master Larry Gagosian than to stage a show of large scale pop art cowboy paintings in the wild west town of Los Angeles. Here, self-styled movie industry cowboys & girls are the big guns, shelling out massive sums for huge canvases to brighten up their vast expanses of open wall space. Hence, it should come as no surprise that Hollywood's biggest players pulled every string at their disposal to score one of the Technicolor trophies on display at Richard Prince's current show at Gagosian Gallery, "Cowboys" (on display till April 6th), to brighten up their next Beverly Hills dinner party.

NICK CAVE’S ANIMATED DANCING HORSES INVADE GRAND CENTRAL STATION

March 29, 2013  |  art  |  Comments Off

Chicago-based artist Nick Cave has been invading NYC's Grand Central Terminal with a mesmerizing troupe of 30 animated roving art horses in a project called HEARD•NY in conjunction with Creative Time. Twice a day at 11AM & 2PM through March 31st, the sculptural horses—animated by two dancers from New York's venerable Alvin Ailey dance troupe per suit—wander, graze, and dance through the historical station's halls, accompanied by live music to the amazement of the thousands of hurried commuters that pack the transit hub daily. Cave's motivation? "I’m looking at the station as a platform to get people back to that place where we dream. We’re in a world where we’re trying to do what we can to exist and hold on to our jobs.So I’d like to transmit this dream-state feeling, to get us out of our day-to-day routine for a moment."
