Joseph Nahmad, known for his pop-up events, recently presented a group show in New York’s Meatpacking district with Nemo Librizzi (who curated Futura’s recent showing at Valmorbida).

It seemed like only yesterday that the some of the art world (here, here, here, here) helped boost Barack Obama into the White House. Now, it’s almost time for the 2012 elections and although the buzz created by the visual culture may not be as overwhelming as 2008, some artists are still taking a stand to make their voices heard. TrustoCorp created this image above reminding people to vote between hot dogs (Obama) & burgers (Romney) as there’s only one week left before Nov. 6th. Also […]

Thousands of costumes that represented multiple facets […]

If you the kind of person that gets excited by a great presentation and buys every up selling item at the seminar, then leave your checkbook and credit card at home and focus on paying attention to the seminar. Working reporters hadn even had their own room at the White House until Teddy Roosevelt. Terms of the management of insanity black aviator sunglasses ray ban acquittees, […]
