Art and artifacts from the recent “Sámi Stories” exhibition at Scandinavia House in NYC.

One of the very best exhibitions I’ve been to in a long time, combining traditional artifacts like reindeer harness and a baby’s cradle with contemporary art still firmly rooted in unique Sámi culture.

1 & 2 — Hats! (Any exhibition that lets you freely try on an array of colorful hats is a win in my book.)

3 — Cradle.

4 — Reindeer Harness and Milk Bowl.

5 — “Antler Spin” by Aslaug Juliussen, textile and reindeer antlers.

6-9 — “Historja” by Britta Marakatt-Labba, an epic embroidered mythology and history of the Sámi people.

10 — “Balvvoscakkit / Offertory Pillars” by Iver Jåks, with photographs by Arvid Sveen.

Taking the Print Media Local to Brooklyn.
Three hardcover books (one slightly out of frame standing in the top right, and one of which was Asimov’s Foundation which made me happy), a magazine (me reading/refraining-from-licking luckypeach!), and (not pictured) a New York Times.
This much uninterrupted print is so rare these days that I had to document it!

Let’s Make Fun Of: Anthropologie Furniture

lizgalvao:

I love to hate Anthropologie furniture. In particular, the way they stage it for their website. There’s this gross fantasy they’ve created of an art student who can afford to spend thousands of dollars on a paint-splattered flea market find. It’s like all their customers are aspiring to be Charlotte in Tiny Furniture (a loft-dwelling trust fund dilettante).

They’ve gone off the deep end with the juxtaposition. You know those fashion editorials every fall where models lasagned in Prada swing around street signs in Red Hook? It’s like that, but on acid. The settings are more deteriorated and the designs are more design-y. It’s like shopping from deep within Fuck Your Noguchi Coffee Table.

If you choose to purchase a piece of Anthropologie furniture, it will only really look right in one of three settings:

1. An alternative gallery space six weeks from opening

image

2. An urban cabin with faulty electrical wiring

image

3. A crumbling Southern plantation (soon to be deemed “the new loft” by the NYTimes)


Let’s take a stroll through the Anthropologie furniture section together. What’s for sale today?

Katherine Baxter

"Katherine Baxter’s work is exquisite, whether small or large scale. Meticulous research goes into every ‘jewel’ like piece, and the pleasure she derives from producing these, is communicated to us all. There is complete mastery of the axonometric projection, as can be appreciated in her grand London and New York posters. It is, as if one is transported by hot air balloon, floating gently over all those much loved and beautifully painted landmarks.” David Driver Head of design, The Times

No. 168 “The Unarmed” 

Rest In Peace…

to Michael Brown, John Crawford, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, Renisha McBride, Oscar Grant, Sean Bell And the countless other lives that have been taken away from this world due to prejudice.

And an honor to the many people in Ferguson standing up, fighting, hoping that some kind of justice can be had in the midst of chaos.

At last, a new Revolutionary Times comic has arrived.

Doorway to type nirvana?
I love this close up of a mural by Colossal Media, in Williamsburg, New York. The sign painters are well-known for their enormous outdoor murals, art projects and advertising images. Always hand-painted and often hundreds of feet off of the ground.
This is photo is from their Big Brush Project, a public art initiative showcasing their work. It was produced in collaboration with NYC-based lettering artist Greg Lamarche and reads Sky High Murals.

“Greg’s technique of hand-cutting found letters was a perfect compliment to the precision-based, hand-paint production method. This piece speaks greatly to the evolution of this community, the art world, and the hand-paint story.”
