A Guide To Tasmania's Art Scene with Andrew Harper

A Guide To Tasmania’s Art Scene with Andrew Harper

What do you know about Tasmania other than what the Looney Tunes has grossly led you to believe about their endemic species?

Believe it or not, but this teeny Australian island – adrift in the South Pacific, about 300 miles away from Melbourne – boasts a sprightly and experimental art scene that only a few globe-trotters will ever stretch their sea legs to get a glimpse of.

Since I’m way shy of the frequent fliers miles necessary to travel to the antipodes of Brooklyn and my knowledge of the Tazzie arts is limited to hashtag-happy Instagramers I stumble upon,  I sought expert help in order to learn more about Tasmanian art.

It didn’t take long until I was pointed to local artist, writer, performer, and all-Tas-everything connoisseur, Andrew Harper.  Check out our interview to find out more about what is arguably the most secluded art scene in the world and pick up some clutter-beating tips for where to eat and play in Tasmania.

I would hate to be the healthy conscious that has to relinquish the impulse to pounce on this temptress. For a room coated in slabs of chilly gunmetal, it’s surprising how a gentle glance and a sprightly outfit can warm up the place. Here’s Botticelli’s muse just hanging out at the Maxxi museum in Rome.

I’d be mad if Mia wasn’t covering  up the letters to her BATM t-shirt or else she’d freeze her tush off in this German tundra. More chilly photos on her own blog Hey Lila Hey and if you’d like a taste of who Mia really is, check out our interview with her on Babe Behind The Babe.

Alisadair McLellan shoots Edie Campbell for 032c Magazine 2

At my first Art History class  back in college, I arrived late to a crowded classroom, disproportionately dominated by women. These photos  by Alisadair McLellan of  Edie Campbell for 032c magazine remind me exactly of that first day and my first reaction, which was  to plant myself  in the front row, away from gorgeous and smarter-than-I distractions. The location  of the photos is uncertain but  if I had to guess, I’d say that the photos were taken at the Victoria and Albert Museum and perhaps also at the British Museum. I could be wrong. More photos  at It’s Nice That.

Sunday at the Met Museum is basically one big obstacle course of feet-dragging tourists. But after spotting a babe in the distance, it makes all the human slaloming worthwhile. Here is New York fashion designer Emilie Ghilaga whose style colors outside the lines of the Upper East Side uniform with a suede vintage Bogner ski jacket, snakeskin leggings and an irreproachable pair of Chucks. You can check out Emilie’s own collection here(Photo by Xavier Aaronson)  (more…)

Here’s a video of the alluring and disorienting experience:

Security has been so good at their job lately that I’ve resorted to doggy paddling around the lobby of museums to snap a stylish photo. Here is a gleaming needle in a haystack, Siobhan spotted at the New Museum.  (Photo by Xavier Aaronson)

Sometimes looking at art is easier than looking for your friends. Lucky for us we had a short window of time to intercept this stunning, Mexican-born photography student at the Art Basel Convention Center while she was trying to locate her cabal of compadres.  Here’s a moment with Mariel and Carlos Cruz Diez. More photos here. (photo by Xavier Aaronson)
