Ladies Night

The gender disparity of DJ culture is nothing new. What is new is that consistently more and more women are joining the ranks of the top elite DJs. Enter Liaison Femme, a creative collective compromised exclusively of female DJs such as Venus X, Mia Moretti, Sam Ronson, Creep, Gina Turner, Louisahhh, DJ Kiss, Jasmine Solano, [...]

Magic Hour

To coincide with the opening of the 2013 Urs Fischer exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, MOCAtv commissioned director Tara Subkoff to make a short film about LA.

Daniel Askill In Conversation

Daniel Askill defies definition. Living between Sydney and New York, he belongs very much to both places and simultaneously to neither. Askill’s work can only be described as a collision of disciplines, in which the filmmaker and artist employs as many mediums as possible. This innate knack for a multifaceted approach has lent him more [...]

Daniel Peddle In Conversation

Daniel Peddle, casting director, artist and filmmaker, is a frontiersman of the first order. Eighteen years after first discovering his calling, he’s finding talent for Givenchy, Phillip Lim and Comme des Garçons, among an über roster of fashion houses. Meanwhile, he’s still keeping a very healthy stride with his longtime passions for painting and filmmaking; [...]

From Paris to Berlin, Big Sur to Seattle, New York to LA, the [...]

Feast of Burden on MOCAtv

I first encountered artist Eugene Kotlyarenko about four years ago at a film shoot in Los Angeles. We were both playing extras in a music video for The Like, and our job was to dress like cute 60s kids and dance around the bar while the band played. There were dozens of us, but Euegene [...]

Tell Me A Story

In San Francisco, one of the most popular things right now is a live story-telling event called Pop-Up Magazine. It has been covered by The New York Times and lots of other national media, so I won’t bore you with too many details, but the gist is this: people come on stage and tell you [...]

Searching For Sugarman

If you are like me, you love the story of how and why artists create work almost as much as the work itself. Whenever I discover something new that I like, I tend to delve into biographical research to find out more about the person behind the art. I remember when I first discovered the [...]

Making Waves at Costume National

Anyone who has lived in New York long enough can walk through SoHo and play the game. Donna Karen’s DKNY used to be Sonnabend and the Leo Castelli Gallery, Ellie Tahari used to be the Mary Boone Gallery, Adidas the Gagosian Gallery, and so on. But, last month, if you arrived at Ennio Capasa’s flagship [...]
