While waiting in line for the brain surgeons at the Highline Ballroom in NYC last night to figure out the guest list for the Pretenders show, a guy in front of me turned and said 'Well, maybe you can get into Madison Square Garden instead?' I asked him 'For what? He replied 'Madonna's there tonight, Isn't that ironic?' I didn't get the irony. Anyway, as he was watching all the color drain from my face I said 'No thank you. Madonna's never...

Autumn and Jerry de Wilde, whose combined careers span from the 60's to the present, are well known for capturing iconic images of influential artists and events. Their shared exhibit "Autumn de Wilde & Jerry de Wilde: Two Generations of Counterculture Photography" opens on October 17 at the Morrison Hotel Gallery's Soho Loft, and will feature a selection of 50 photos by the father/daughter duo. That's twice the awesome in one night! Jerry de Wilde's photography traced the Counterculture of the late 60's into the...

YOUNITY is having an opening for their new exhibition Heart and Soul! YOUNITY is a womens art collective focused on creating a forum for female voices in the art world. The organization was founded by artists Alice Mizrachi and Toofly in 2007 as a reaction to the under representation of female artists. They also serve to mentor young artists and create a community that they can thrive in. Their second annual YOUNITY Arts Exhibit: Heart and Soul is happening on October 17th at Alphabetta (Greenpoint...

Guest of Cindy Sherman is a compelling documentary about a guy who falls in love with the most influential female art star of our time, Cindy Sherman, and gets lost in the relationship. It's about art fame and the seeming inadequacy of being the 'plus 1.'  Paul H-O has made both a touching boyfriend movie, and a scathing portrayal of the art world, with great footage from the 90's art scene.        I think like alot of people, myself included, H-O has a love/hate...

I know most of you that read this blog don't care at all about this show. Which is totally understandable. I, however, will be watching every episode (or at least as long as my lil sis is still on).  She is the one in the tiara, Zui. My sister has always been pretty vain so this comes as no shocker to me (every time she visits me she brings a new picture of herself for my fridge). I am sure Paris loved her. Not only...

The second volume of P.L.A.I.N. Janes from Minx hit stores this week, along with the sad news that the Minx imprint will cease publication in January. The second Janes book is as much fun as the first, with the sassy high school girls creating unauthorized art around their small town. This time, things are complicated by crushes, with each Jane having her (or his) own love troubles. Despite boy issues, though, Main Jane's goal is still to make art, and it is that goal that drives...

Photographer Jill Greenberg has gotten herself into a real shit storm since she posted some doctored images of McCain on her website a few weeks ago. She was hired by The Atlantic Monthly to shoot him, and not long afterward got creative with the photoshop, including a version with bloody fangs and even one with a monkey pooping on Mccains head(!) It all seems a little extreme to me, not to mention damaging to her career. (Apparently her agent dropped her like a...

I finally put up some of the pictures from the opening reception of Swoon 's Swimming Cities of Switchback Sea. The performance is over but the installation is still up until October at Deitch Projects. Her wheatpastes are breathtaking and the boats are amazing. The magic is really in the details so you really need to inspect the works up close. I put the flicks on flickr so you could make them larger but you really need to see this in person to take all...
