It’s been quite a while since our last Rewind feature, so it’s high time we bring you some videos. Starting things off is an explicit new music video from Tyler, The Creator entitled Tamale. If you recognize the scene from 0:48 – 1:02, it’s because it is a scene based of a Mark Ryden painting who also designed the cover for his new album – Wolf. Other notable videos: An interview with Anthony Lister at Wynwood Miami last May. ROA, Phlegm and others recreate famous Baroque paintings. RuPaul drives […]

Legendary artist David Lynch recently got together with Dom Pérignon for a collaborative project. The American filmmaker, television director, visual artist, musician, and actor designed some limited versions of the Champagne brand’s bottles along with the packaging featuring the theme of flickering lights. The process was documented on a short film seen below, but you can also see some of the photos and an interview here. More videos of the week: Mike Leavitt was added as part of the ongoing ArtTalk series. John Baldessari explain his views of the internet’s impact […]
For our video summary this weekend, our featured piece is entitled A Brief History of John Baldessari. The humorous yet informative video follows a give and take session between the conceptual artist and narrator Tom Waits. The footage includes topics like how Baldessari cremated everything he ever made, his height, and his love affair with dots, his film still collection, how “he will not make any more boring art,” among other zany discussion points. Other notable videos this week… JR, a year after his TED […]
Following our earlier coverage largely restricted to original works at London Art Fair, AM is back with a selection of the limited edition prints and other multiples we spotted at Tuesday’s opening. Among the more obvious highly-desirables were a couple of screenprints from the 1960s: Sandra by the recently-deceased Gerald Laing and Untitled (La Lune en Rodage – Carlo Belloli) by Bridget Riley, both at the Sims Reed Gallery booth. The Multiple Store, however, is showcasing our favourite new discovery: Shoal by artists Ackroyd & […]
This $100,000 bill recently showed up in New York, along the re-purposed train tracks known as The High Line. The First $100,000 I Ever Made is the work of famed American conceptual artist John Baldessari and is displayed prominently on a 25-foot-by-75-foot billboard (above 18th St). This example of art near or on the famed pedestrian walkway is the first we have seen since KAWS and FriendsWithYou. More photos by Bill Orcutt after the jump…
A while back, we told you about the debut issue of Dasha Zhukova’s provocative new art magazine Garage which featured tattoos from prominent artists like Jeff Koons, Richard Prince, Raymond Pettibon, John Baldessari, and Damien Hirst. The Hirst designed butterfly in particular was controversial because it was tattooed onto the labia (NSFW pics here) of a willing participant. Now, comes word of a documentary entitled Skin that was produced in association with the project. Check the trailer above. Via booooooom.
Starting in October 2011, 60 cultural institutions across Southern California will be joining forces to support Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. from 1945 to 1980 with programming, events, and exhibitions that tell the progression of the L.A. art scene as well as the worlds of music, film and architecture. As part of the associated awareness campaign, a series of videos have been launched including one where Anthony Kiedis takes Ed Ruscha on a ride down Sunset Blvd. Well, the unexpected pairings continue with the […]
This past weekend, AM stopped by to catch a fresh exhibition at Martha Otero Gallery. As explained in our preview, the curiously titled Oniomania means “to compulsively buy”. In this case, the group show was filled with pieces that would drive an art shopaholic wild as such notables as John Baldessari, Ed Ruscha, James Jean, David Choe, Jen Stark, FriendsWithYou, Darren Romanelli, Chris Beas, Jonathan Borofsky, Liz Craft, Sebastian Clough, Wim Delvoye, Lia Halloran, Adam Janes, Brand Kahlhamer, Donald Lipski, Bruce Nauman and Jason Polan had […]

We […]
The site Secret Little Art Geeks (SLAGS), which has collaboratively produced limited edition T-shirts with such artists as John Baldessari, Curtis Kulig and Greg Lamarche, has just released a new shirt.
