I Picked up This Shell to Hear the Ocean, Then It Dropped the Bass

If you happen to be in Siberia some day strolling through the dense taiga, the Angara river flanking one of your sides and the other: a husky; a furry friend to warm the cockles of your heart, so that neither the harshness of the Siberian anticyclones nor the ghost of Rasputin may penetrate your good will. Yes, if you happen […]

Repartee in the Year of the Green Wood Sheep: Ai Weiwei sits down with fellow Chinese artist in light of the Omnipresent Exhibition

Zhao Zhao and I first met on November 27, 2004. We have known each other for more than 10 years. He graduated from the Xinjiang Arts Institute, one of the top eight art academies in China. The institute is something between a teaching university and an art academy: a comprehensive art school offering classes in fine art, broadcasting, dance, and […]

G-Star RAW Raises the Curtain on Their Monolithic New Home

In certain more-ancient places (well, Europe) it can sometimes seem like buildings have sprouted out of the same order-in-chaos as their fully organic counterparts out in the countryside: They simply appear native, as if seeds were sown beneath concrete mixers during a full moon. Similarly, out of the thicket of industrial Zuidoost, on the outskirts of Amsterdam, a particular edifice […]

Psychologically, There May Be Feelings of Anxiety, Relief, Pleasurable Satiation, Disappointment, Lassitude, Leaden Exhaustion...

It could be said that alienation is a precursor to the idea of location. For location necessitates an other, and because of the other, the heart shall ever wander and stitch, shall ever estrange. Ask artist, writer, curator Dan Graham and he’ll tell you about the ever-wandering heart, his early efforts to debunk valuation, the woolly space between primates and […]

VIDEO PREMIERE: Cotillon: "Gloom"

Is this real, am I dreaming? Slurs the second line in Cotillon‘s “Gloom,” no more than 2 and a half minutes long, the track is over just as it’s begun, a guitar-based jam anchored by easy-going drums and the ever-unappreciated light cowbell. Paired with a video inspired by ’90s era-psychedelia, like the lost b-reel for the The Adventures of Pete & […]

You Asked for a Performance and You've Been given One

The sun burns a layer of smog into a rich pink tapestry, certain factions ready for the GRAMMYs, and Kim Gordon is currently located in California. Last week, when I called her up and asked if she might create a Part 2 for her bound cover artwork, a removable top sheet that corresponded with her painting below—“In memory of Ron […]

I Trust You Will Share in My Gentle Obsession

All Under Heaven: The Chinese World in Maps, Pictures, and Texts from the Collection of Floyd Sully.

The deafening sound of waves rushing into The Cave of Tidal Sound at the foot of Mount Putuo Shan on the Southern Sea is said to resemble the chanting of monks. In the 10th century, multiple people reported being saved at sea near the cave by the hand of Guanyin, a popular god or goddess (depending on what century you […]
