I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Pari is kind of like our muse.  On her own blog, she’s taken the intersection between fashion and art to another level by putting her own stunning twist to dressing for the arts.

Pari pairs her style with the exhibition she plans on visiting. Last weekend, we stretched our own rules that narrow down who we babe’out with. Instead of bumping into some art-gawking style maven by chance encounter, Pari and I actually scheduled a rendezvous at the MoMA PS1. 

I’m not proud of our code-breaking orchestration but sometimes you gotta bend the law for an opportunity to achieve something exquisite. And in this case, Pari is too ill for the law.

At the heart of the Rose Center for Earth and Space in the American Museum of Natural History is a babe with a crepuscular style that beams like a ray of light. Her name is Tara. During our visit, she tried to sneak into the Planetarium but was unsuccessful because museum guards take their jobs very seriously (and bless their sweet hearts for doing so.) Instead, the closet cosmologist, decked out all in black, let us take some quick pics of her walking along the spiraling pathway that surrounds the astro theater dome.

When Tara’s satisfied her cravings for astrophysics, she’s spends her talents making music and flexing her pipes. She’s one half of Brooklyn electronic-pop duo Soft Lit and also a member of the party fun disco dance ensemble Motion Studies. Her latest jam is called “Ocean King” and it’s just one of the many excellent songs coming out of the kaleidoscopic label GODMODE.

And if you haven’t heard of Motion Studies, then I urge you to correct that deficit and to check them out live on Wed, April 9th at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn. (photos by Sam Deitch)

Simplicity always wins.  After a brief tour of the Free Wheel bicycle exhibition at the Holon Design Museum, the sprightly Anaël comes gunnin’ straight for us camera with her perfectly paired getup.  The beautiful bending architecture you see in the background is  a creation by museum designer Ron Arad. Here’s to a sublime start to the Spring. (photo by Sarah Peguine)

Style is much like a sword that is sharpened over time. Marlene was a charming staff member who had the most elegant touches we’ve ever seen at the Guggenheim. Here she is photographed during her shift, lookin’ straight gorgey. (photos by Xavier Aaronson)

A pink beanie and turquoise high-tops say I’m the art world’s miscreant purveyor of chuckles and flare. Deal with it. When he’s not in his b-boy stance in front of a Richard Serra prow-like sculpture, he’s making tight videos and DJ’ing parties of insubordinate romp. (Photo by Xavier Aaronson)

Winters feel long, but they can come with seasonally acceptable and totally awesome side effects like introspection, gluttony and cuddle fests. But before fully giving into our reflex to hibernate in our crotch-snap onesies, we strolled into 5th Avenue’s rotunda-shaped museum to check out the pattern paintings of Christopher Wool. 

There, we met Alex. She’s a stunning neurobiologist student-cum-creative strategist who, upon our encounter, had the intrigue of a lunar landing. At first, she wasn’t too thrilled to do the whole deadpan, cookie-cutter street style pose—which I totally get, I often doubt my own “creative direction”—so, we started talking about Kandinsky and the throes of winter boogers, and boom, out of nowhere, her relaxed élan came into full photogenic bloom.

I was freezing my tail off in Olafur Eliasson’s immersive  and subzero installation “Your waste of time” at the MoMA PS1 when my vision  stumbled upon an equally shivery museum-goer by the name of Samantha.

After exchanging a few teeth-chattering words and snapping a quick photo, I learned that she had just returned to Brooklyn from a harrowing adventure with some teen exorcists. Don’t worry, she filmed the whole demon-evicting process for us to enjoy.  So… ENJOY!

I was pretty much hooked after that.

The more I asked Samantha about the documentaries she had up her sleeve, the more this voracious producer was transforming into a blonde swiss army knife of the film world.

Check out her website. It’s an eyeball parade of fun and brilliance.

Commonly considered the next Trillion Dollar Revolution, mobile devices are dividing the way we interact with reality. In an art world intellectually dominated by relational aesthetics, surprisingly few artists are examining this new medium as a platform for performance and experimentation.

In our Age of the Unpaid Intern, mobile apps serve, for many, as an immersive experience—an escape route—even a virtual studio. Akin to a tableau by Hieronymus Bosch, the mobile experience is rife with mesmerizing commotion, momentary pleasures and untapped marvels.  (more…)
