Lizzi Bougatsos in Conversation

There are few people for whom it is safe to employ the cliché, “She needs no introduction.” Lizzi Bougatsos—visual artist, Gang Gang Dance frontwoman, I.U.D. drummer and charmingly gentle weirdo—is one of them. Back in 2008, when Aaron Bondaroff’s show My Life in T-Shirts opened at Terrence Koh’s now defunct Asia Song Society, she was [...]

Aaron Rose’s Fire Sale

Where do well-known gallerists with tons of street credibility and a storage unit full of a bygone decade’s cultural relics have yard sales? At art galleries of course!

Harmony Korine Collected Fanzines

Two years ago I layed gloved hands upon a copy of Harmony Korine‘s Humor zine at the special collections library. This was one of several limited edition fanzines Korine made (sometimes in collaboration with Mark Gonzales) during the 90s, through the Alleged Gallery and Andrea Rosen Gallery in New York. On November 18th, the gloves [...]
