For anybody living in the New York City area it is impossible to imagine a city without graffiti. Lines and letters demand attention from rooftops and overpasses, and several sacred spots have been reserved solely for the exhibition of this urban art form. While I’d be the last one to promote vandalism, a few headliners caught my attention, and made me wonder exactly who the enemy is in the recent graffiti crackdown.   The case that warranted my outrage ...

Tomorrow evening Gitana Rosa Gallery in Williamsburg will kick off the fall season with a multimedia exhibition revolving around the male nude. Whether exalted in Greco-Roman times as a figure of heroism or dismissed as an unneeded presence of male dominance, the male body is a fascinating subject. "Hung" recognizes this and the artists featured in the exhibition are working to challenge both men's and women's perceptions of the male nude. Where do we stand in ... Read More

For many of us it’s been some time since school was last in session, and we can’t help but wax nostalgic when September rolls around.  Lately, there is more to be missed from back-to-school season than afternoon recess, field trips and flavorless foods served with an ice cream scoop. I’m talking about the high quality education that has been lacking in our public school systems for the past few decades.  Rather than sitting idly by and ... Read More
It appears that the not so subtle whisper of autumnal fancies is creeping into my Ipod in an exceptionally fabulous way. The crisp breeze and changing of the leaves harkens the sweet romantic sounds of my favorite smorgasbord of sultry Parisian pop, which always includes a healthy dose of Serge Gainsbourg. Compelling me to observe the world in the most imaginary of ways, his picturesque crooning and composition turns my everyday mundane into a stylized French ... Read More
Best-selling author Wendy Shanker opens her latest memoir, Are You My Guru? How Medicine, Meditation and Madonna Saved My Life (Penguin, September 2010), with a comparison of sick bodies. Her own--as a person living with a rare autoimmune disorder--and Madonna's--as a person who "could crush your head between her thighs while she's prancing around singing 'Holiday.'" From the first page she lets us know that Madonna provides "an example of unrelenting strength." ... Read More

TheSquareJaw.com

BY Emilie Branch in Arts

  TheSquareJaw.com is a site devoted to capturing the male gaze. I founded the site because I felt that male beauty, realized by women, is sort of absent from the photography canon. I’m striving to capture men; specifically, the way they look at women. Bruce Weber is my ultimate hero—his pictures of men are always so beautiful, though I wonder how the subject’s gaze would alter if if there were an underlying attraction. I think you can see ...

Communication Breakdown.

BY skye in Arts

Brooklyn-based artist, Bethany Jean Fancher, created her latest book Cleavage in an attempt to confuse the masses.  Arranged in an accordion fold-out style, the book is comprised of images of "cleavage" that are actually photos of butt cleavage instead of boob cleavage.  Fancher flawlessly creates the illusions of ample bosoms with strategically arranged limbs and props and pontificates on the subject of female objectification and sexuality. I was ... Read More
