Street artist Shepard Fairey was featured in an awesome segment on CBS News Sunday Morning. The video features an in-depth interview, provides a look at his “Supply & Demand” retrospective at ICA Boston (covered), discusses his recent arrest (covered) and legal issues with the AP, and contains some great footage of a young Fairey from the documentary “Andre the Giant Has a Posse.” Note: There is a brief twenty second CBS commercial preceding the video. Discuss Shepard Fairey here.
Marcel Dzama recently collaborated with David Byrne on this video from N.A.S.A. featuring the track “The People Tree.” This isn’t Marcel’s first foray into the music field as he has done album cover work in the past for artists such as They Might Be Giants and Beck. If you remember, N.A.S.A. collaborated with Shepard Fairey on a previous music video “Money” (seen below). We wonder what other artists they have lined up for the future. Partially via Boing Boing thru TWBE. Check out other music […]
Jeff Soto recently posted up a time-lapse video on his blog of him painting “The Corruption of Mankind,” one of his largest pieces from his show at the Riverside Art Museum. It’s always interesting to get a glimpse of an artist’s creative process. Discuss Jeff Soto here.
We are sure you all remember this video from a while back where Paris Hilton endorses Anthony Lister’s (interviewed) work. The Australian artist, who opened a show last week, apparently had time to take that encounter and paint Hilton as a superhero. Turns out she loves it… Perhaps it will end up on her walls somehow? Discuss Anthony Lister here.
Last night, AM stopped by Stolen Spaceâ€™s Dray Walk Gallery and saw a good turn out for the opening of Brad Downeyâ€™s “An Honest Thief” show which runs until the 8th of February. The show features a range of work using video installations, 3D sculptures, photographic prints, film projections, vandalized record covers, and even some cross stitch throw in for good measure! In this solo show, Brad continues to explore ways of manipulating and reclaiming the urban environment around us â€“ often in humorous and […]
If you ever wanted to learn about how the “Low Brow” art movement started, this series of videos posted by sketchv might interest you.Â Broken into 11 parts (Part 1 seen above), these videos recorded the lecture of Robert Williams at the Oakland Museum of California a couple months ago that was part of the L.A. Paint show (currently showing still).Â Although not the best quality, Williams can be heard covering a wide variety of topics as well as talk about over 60 of his […]
Danko Jones – King Of Magazines from Bad Taste Records on Vimeo. Baby Tattooville alum Dave Cooper and animator Nick Cross recently teamed with Canadian rock band Danko Jones to produce a music video for their song “King of Magazines.” Oddly, this is exactly the sort of video you would expect if classic Cooper characters were animated – a bouncy lush world filled with his voluptuous and lascivious women strangely pulsating to the beat. Make sure you check out this interview by Hi-Fructose about the […]
The Brooklyn Museum recently announced the launching of a new type of museum membership program that builds on the popularity and connectivity of online social networking sites, such as Facebook and Twitter. Called 1stfans, the program gives members access to the museum’s First Saturday events, where they will be able to meet and interact with other members and museum staff. Also, 1stfans will be kept up to date with museum news and events via Facebook, Twitter and email. And for the formal 1stfans launch on […]
Here is a little teaser video for the project we are working on with the good people at Modus Films. It’s a mini-documentary on Jeff Soto and his first ever museum show. The exhibit is entitled “Turning in Circles” (teased) and will open on December 13th at the Riverside Art Museum. Stopped by yesterday to take a look at the installation – it will be epic. AM will have a preview for you in the next several days as well as more surprises.
