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…)

Susi & Cuno AB at Kunstblitz by Dorottya Varga

Installationists are the unsung heroes of the art world. When ambling through galleries, all we ever see are impeccably laid out series of works that usually make up pristine exhibitions. But what about the nimble fingers and sweaty foreheads that put it all together. Here, Susi and Cuno take a millisecond pause for an act-halting pose for our photographer Dori during the installation of Kajsa Lorentzon‘s  photo retrospective at KunstBlitz gallery in Berlin. (photo by Dori Varga)

Franz Kafka. A medieval core. Haggardly elegant cobblestone streets under fairy tale castles and architecture galore. But, I’m not recounting a pleasant dream that I had. I’m telling you about Prague. A city with a romantic mystique and cheap brews.

A really tremendous city that knows that a decent celebration should last at least twenty-four hours on a public street. And BATM is all for that. But, for the love of F. Kafka, what about Art? Where’s the art scene under these gothic spires, adorable bridges, infinite breweries, and romantic views?

That’s where Monika comes in. A living, bona fide art babe professional from the Czech Republic who somehow finds the time to work at the Museum Kampa, City Gallery and still has the time to lead art programs for young artists.

Here’s our full interview with Monika, the superhuman GPS and our portal into Prague’s art scene. (more…)
