Russian Criminal Tattoo Police Files is a selection of photographs of Russian prisoners tattoos collected by Arkady Bronnikov between the mid-1960s and mid-1980s. A senior expert in criminalistics at the USSR Ministry of Internal Affairs for over thirty years, part of Bronnikov’s duties involved visiting correctional institutions of the Ural and Siberia regions. It was here that he interviewed, gathered information and photographed convicts and their tattoos, building one of the most comprehensive archives of this phenomenon acquired by FUEL in 2013. Russian Criminal Tattoo Police Files is on view until November 30, 2014, at Grimaldi Gavin, 27 Albamarle Street, London.
The newest single from Singer’s Grave A Sea of Tongues is molten, set to burn like a classic torch song should– in your ears and forever! On “New Black Rich (Tusks)”, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy collaborated with longtime songwriting partner Bryan Rich to create the ardent ballad. In the music video, Billy is featured with long ivory tusks as he dances and sings his way to a country speakeasy where he falls in love with a girl who has another strange animalistic characteristic.
Andrew Edlin Gallery presents debut solo gallery exhibition in the United States of the drawings of Susan Te Kahurangi King, a self-taught artist from New Zealand. Around the age of four, for no apparent reason, Susan stopped speaking, but continued to express herself through prolific drawings and sketchbooks. In King’s compositions, viewers will find peculiar perspectives, a collage-like, breaking-up of pictorial space and the subject matter she depicts in it, and a rollicking sense of the artist’s powerful and expressive art-making line. Susan Te Kahurangi King’s exhibiton – Drawings from Many Worlds – will be on view at the Andrew Edlin Gallery until December 20, 2014, 34 Tenth Avenue New York.

Part two of artist Daniel Arsham’s film Future Relic 02. See Arsham’s upcoming exhibit, entitled Welcome to the Future, on view during Art Basel Miami at Locust Projects. For the installation, Arsham transforms the gallery into an excavation site, digging trench in the gallery’s floor that holds thousands of calcified artifacts—a muted cacophony of 20th century media devices. Mounds of boom boxes, electric guitars, SLR cameras, Blackberries, game controllers, VHS tapes, Walkmans, film projectors, and portable televisions, rendered in crystal, volcanic ash, and other minerals fill the pit, collapsing linear narratives of past, present, and future.
