Fashion Film for Viva Vena!

Posted February 7th by in Fashion, Film

Fashion Film, starring Lizzy Caplan and directed by Matthew Frost, for the line Viva Vena! takes a satirical look at the traditional fashion film in all it’s typical ubiquitous corniness and pastiches of the hipster chick lifestyle in an abashed attempt to market to a very obvious demographic.

Regarding Warhol: Sixty Artists, Fifty Years

Posted February 7th by in Art


For decades, critics have observed that Andy Warhol exerted an enormous impact on contemporary art, but no exhibition has yet explored the full nature or extent of that influence. Through approximately forty-five works by Warhol alongside one hundred works by some sixty other artists, Regarding Warhol: Sixty Artists, Fifty Years juxtaposes prime examples of Warhol’s paintings, sculpture, and films with those by other artists who in key ways reinterpret, respond, or react to his groundbreaking work. What emerges is a fascinating dialogue between works of art and artists across generations. Regarding Warhol: Sixty Artists, Fifty Years will be on view until April 28, 2013 @ The Andy Warhol Museum, 117 Sandusky Street, Pittsburgh, PA


Skye Nicolas M*DEL F*CKR

Posted February 6th by in Culture, Fashion


Fashion week is almost here and for some people that means models on the runway, but for other people that means models in the bedroom. Leonardo DiCaprio, Johnny Depp, Mick Jagger, Mickey Rourke, and Madonna have all been there. It seems models just can’t resist. In fashion, film and finance it’s par for the course. New York-based artist Skye Nicolas has a knack for taking the ironic and the ridiculous and mixing it with the pure, distilled fuel of gossip (sometimes about himself) and notions of celebrity (sometimes his own), and turns it into socially poignant pieces of art. Nicolas’ new series, fittingly called M*DEL F*CKR, which includes 90′s style logo tees and beanies, is a tongue-in-cheek ode to those who partake in certain dalliances with the aforementioned genetically gifted. Even Nicolas himself has been caught in the rumor mill with his own trysts caught on a webcam at The Mark Hotel in New York leaving some to call him a M*DEL F*CKR. Transforming the colloquial term into a recognizable logo graphic playfully de-stigmatizes its instinctively incendiary context and replacing it with affectionate banter intended to praise, becoming the ultimate compliment promising unabated adulation. It’s no surprise that a handful of top agency girls have already gotten hold of the merchandise, and have been spotted at New York Fashion Week castings wearing M*DEL F*CKR tees and beanies. Head over to Induced Nostalgia and get yourself a logo tee for $30 bucks (same price for beanies). The tees are truly authentic in their 90′s style cut and Loosey-Goosey Sizing™, uniquely coined by the artist. Grab one now for Fashion Week before they’re gone forever!

Doug Aitken 100 YRS @ 303 Gallery

Posted February 5th by in Art


Central to Doug Aitken’s “100 YRS” exhibition is a new Sonic Fountain, in which water drips from 5 rods suspended from the ceiling, falling into a concrete crater dug out of the gallery floor. The flow of water itself is controlled so as to create specific rhythmic patterns that will morph, collapse and overlap in shifting combinations of speed and volume, lending the physical phenomenon the variable symphonic structure of song. The water itself appears milky white, as if imbued and chemically altered by its aural properties, a basic substance turned supernatural. The amplified sound of droplets conjures the arrhythmia of breathing, and along with the pool’s primordial glow, the fountain creates its own sonic system of tracking time. Doug Aitken 100 YRS will be on view until March 23, 2013 at 303 Gallery, 547 W 21st Street, New York, NY.
