Creepy Easter Bunnies

Wishing you a happy Easter by way of some of the strangest and creepiest Easter Bunny photos ever. My personal favorites continue below. You can also visit Happy Place for an extended gallery complete with snarky comments. Click “Read More” for additional images.

A Point of View

In 2009, media theorist Laurence A. Rickels wrote a piece on True Blood for Art Forum. This interest in transgressive, contemporaneous subject matter is present in his art collection as well. Recently, 122 works from his collection were gifted to the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, including many outstanding works on paper and [...]

Catherine Opie

Catherine Opie’s current exhibition at Regen Projects in Los Angeles shows a marked progression and change in the artist’s work. Though Opie is best known for her portraiture of LGBT subjects, this show includes portraits as well as landscapes (which she has produced in the past, notably in her freeway series) visibly engaged in psychology [...]

Don’t Frack My Mother

Artists Against Fracking has released this video, directed by Sarah Sophie Flicker, Maximilla Lucas, and Tennessee Thomas, to garner support for the anti-fracking movement in New York State. If you want to take action, they ask that you take a minute to tweet it at Governor Cuomo here.

Crystal Dyer in Conversation

Crystal Dyer’s studio is made up of a several small rooms, one leading into the next like a series of dimly lit caves. The ceilings are low and many of the walls are ripped up, exposing puffy insulation and thick metal wires. A large black sheet of peeling wallpaper hangs off the wall; this is [...]

Llyn Foulkes

A long overdue retrospective of Llyn Foulkes is currently on view at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. Foulkes, himself based in Los Angeles, is a compelling and significant yet under-recognized contemporary artist, and this extensive retrospective consists of 140 works spanning the breadth of Foulkes’ career. Although Foulkes had a solo exhibit in 1961 [...]

Mike Brodie

At 17 Mike Brodie hopped his first train close to his home in Pensacola, FL thinking he would visit a friend in Mobile, AL. Instead the train went in the opposite direction to Jacksonville, FL. Days later, Brodie rode the same train home, arriving back where he started. Brodie began to wander across the U.S. [...]

Marina Abromovic and Ulay

Marina Abramovic and Ulay shared an intense love story in the 70′s and 80′s, living together in a van and creating art. Some of Abromovic’s most interesting pieces were collaborations with Uday, including Breathing In/Breathing Out, in which they connected their mouths and took in each other’s exhaled breaths until they had used up all of the [...]

American Pie

This is such a weird, thoroughly American story. In 1962, modernist architect Richard Neutra designed a visitors’ center for the Gettysburg site, where the Civil War’s most infamous battle was fought – and many say the war was won. The entire area is a major tourist attraction, with hundreds of historical buildings, including a working [...]

Now On View: Norwood and Underline Present

The dialogue between man and the space he inhabits is not a new one. It’s been a source of artistic tension and social critique since, well, the awareness of the relationship first occurred. While on a personal level, the archetypally-charged theme seems very middle school English reading list, it does pose relevant when you take [...]
