Yes, you read that right. Aelita Andre, the 4-year-old daughter of two Australia-based artists, has her own solo exhibit, The Prodigy of Color, at the Agora Gallery in Chelsea, NY until the 25th of June. While the popular joke about abstract art may still be “my kid could have done that,” Andre’s success adds new meaning to the common trope. The artist sold paintings for as much as $24,000, and celebrated her second birthday during her first ... Read More

Contest ends May 31st 2011, still time to enter! If you own an official Polaroid camera manual from the 1960's, 70's or 80's you've undoubtedly noticed the mod ladies stiffly posing for product shots. With perfectly manicured†nails and immaculately coiffed hair, these ladies were not only fine as wine, but they're also a window into the fashion of the day. If you have seen the hit series Mad Men and salivated over the styles of the working girls, this is ... Read More
In her current installation Knitting Is for Pus****, Polish artist Agata Oleksiak, (Olek) has taken craft to a new level. Previously having merely covered people, bikes, and cars, she has now covered an entire apartment with her intricately looped yarn and left no surface untouched by her crocheted creations. Much of the furniture featured is from Olek's own apartment, including her bed, which she apparently misses so much that she occasionally sleeps in ... Read More

Review: Bridesmaids

BY Jenni in Artsy

  The word being tossed around in relation to Kristen Wiig's star-making new comedy Bridesmaids is womance, and the portmanteau is somewhat apt but not entirely fair. Writers love a good pun or, better yet, a tidy way to label something, especially if it's a new sort of thing that we don't know quite how to handle, which, in a way, Bridesmaids is. Bridesmaids is not quite a chick flick, although it was written by Wiig and Annie Mumolo and boasts a ... Read More
New York has not always been the safe, overpriced playground for the rich. Sure, cities change but comparatively NYC is  now a child’s wonderland compared to what it was in the seventies. Left to crumble into both financial and physical ruin by president Ford, who refused to help the city pay off its debts, lower New York City was sent into a state of heavy decline. Times were bleak. The Lower East Side and Alphabet city were relentless war zones. ... Read More
I don’t know how many times I’ve almost tripped on broken sidewalks and holes in the ground. It’s not only annoying and possibly dangerous, it’s not very pretty! Juliana Santacruz Herrera decided to change that and create some adorably unusual (& colorful!) street art. She brightened up the city of Paris with twisted yarn and although it may not fix the pothole problem, it’s certainly fun to look at!  [source: 80s ... Read More
The 10th Annual Tribeca Film Festival has finally screened it’s last flick, and as the dust settles, it’s time to look back and appreciate some of the female directors whose films were among the fest’s most exceptional work. Keep an eye out for these titles in the coming year—their impressive showings here in N.Y.C. hopefully mean that distribution deals will be right around the corner: The Best Narrative Feature award went to first-time ...

Sonic Art

BY Intern Jessica W. in Artsy

I LOVE KIM GORDON, as a teenager i feel in love with her in Sonic Youth as she fueled my dreams of one day being a cool girl in a band. As a twenty something, i discovered her art work, acting, voice over in The Simpsons, clothing line, writing and a new level of respect for females. Is there anything this woman can't do?  The answer, is a unified NO. If you are as big of a fan of Kim as i am, you will be super psyched to know that signed, limited editions of ... Read More
