(That's race jokes, not racist.) Kristina Wong and Issa Rae are two performers profiled in the new New York Times video series, Off Color. The four-part series delves into the personal and political goals and motivations of artists of color who use humor to directly and acutely address issues of race in the United States. It is enthralling to hear these provocative artists overtly explain the social injustices that inspire them to be not just artists who can ... Read More

I’ve always thought that once I get my hands on a time machine, one of my initial trips will be to 1979 to see if my mom would think I was cool enough to hang with her in Des Moines. “If I Had Known My Mother Back Then” is a more accessible experiment in the same vein. For her latest project, artist Danielle Delph edited herself into photos of her mother as a child and teenager. The result is touching and the pieces are seamless: it is not even ... Read More
“Black Moon New York,” opening this Friday at Sloan Fine Art’s site/109, celebrates the fabulously freaky artwork of four female artist friends. Marion Peck, Camille Rose Garcia, Elizabeth McGrath, and Jessicka Addams. The group collaborated with gallerist Alix Sloan last year in Los Angeles with a two-day exhibition, “Black Moon,” that was inspired by their successful and satisfying careers and their rich relationships with each ...

  My first encounter with the work of Chloe Fay Worth Smith came in the form of large mounted color print of a mattress stained with menstrual blood. In a group show at Sarah Lawrence College, the work was magnetic and alluring, its uncomfortable subject matter elevated by its aesthetic beauty. The vision, so ordinary in the context of girlhood humiliations, became unfamiliar through her lens, emerging like the mysterious remains of some remarkable event. The ... Read More
  We are still obsessed with French singer/actress Soko and you should be too! She is currently an opening act for Foster the People, on tour this fall. (Find out when she is coming to your city here.) Soko released her debut album I Thought I Was An Alien in the US in June 2013. The album has fourteen tracks of lush beats, synthetic drums, and keyboards. They have an undertone of melancholia but are swept away with Soko’s soothing ... Read More
    On Saturday, Sept. 20, The Theater at The Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles held an art gala with proceeds benefiting Planned Parenthood. Radiating a poetic elegance from every angle, the venue reiterated the contextual nature of the beast, the SEXY BEAST, that is; an antiquity built with a solid foundation—restored in the name of modern progression. Oh, the metaphors! SEXY BEAST was organized by Davida Nemeroff and Mieke Marple of the ... Read More
I have been brainstorming for years the best way to react to catcallers, and I think Caroline Tompkins has found it. Her creative and powerful photo project titled “Hey Baby” turns the lens on her verbal assaulters. The 22-year-old art student claimed walking around her own neighborhood was unbearable and she would constantly be harassed. In taking photos of the jerks that think they are in the right, she is able to turn around and confront the ... Read More
