Cramming Doughnuts in a Bodysuit

As you read this, you're probably already dreaming about plans for your long weekend. Lucky for you, we've got plenty of posts for you to take with while you're out at the beach, camping, or just taking a break at home.
  • We wrapped up our 7 Rising Art Stars to Watch interview series. Find out what makes all these artists tick—among other anecdotes—here. Nick Sethi was once electrocuted in India while holding $8,000 worth of gear. Jack Early wanted to be a magician when he grew up. And Deanna Havas mentions that Rule 30 of the Internet states "There are no girls on the internet."

  • Whitney Kimball is spending a good chunk of her time doing studio visits in Philadelphia; she profiles some of the city's most raucous, fearless artists in "Do or DIY: A Month of Studio Visits in Philly." With donuts stuffed into a fishnet bodysuit!

  • Our Chicago contributor Robin Dluzen takes a look at the new documentary on Chicago's art scene from the 1960s and 70s, Hairy Who & The Chicago Imagists. If you're not already in-the-know about the dozens of cartoony, surrealist, and pop-inspired artists like Gladys Nilsson, Roger Brown, Christina Ramberg, and Karl Wirsum, the film's a great intro.

Happy Labor Day weekend-ing!

We'll see you next week,

Paddy, Whitney, and Corinna



Do or DIY: A Month of Studio Visits in Philly

Philadelphia keeps the rents low and the art weird.

7 Rising Art Stars To Watch: Jack Early

It's possible Jack Early is the art world's best living poet.

7 Rising Art Stars to Watch: Deanna Havas

Last but not least, our interview with Deanna Havas!

This Week's Recommended Shows: Old Tech and Boobs

Every Monday, we're bringing you our recommended listings!

7 Rising Stars to Watch: Nick Sethi

"I don't think photography can really be objective, so I try to make it as subjective as possible," Nick Sethi recently told VICE. No shit.

Chicago Then and Now: Hairy Who & The Chicago Imagists

This film documents the history of Chicago's most famous art movement that introduced the world to artists like Ed Paschke, Jim Nutt, Gladys Nilsson, and Karl Wirsum, and brings to light the lasting effects of the city's 1960s-era avant garde on contemporary practitioners. In short, you should watch the movie.

7 Rising Stars to Watch: Mike and Claire

You've basically got two of sexiest people on earth turning themselves into monsters, and they don't even want to be lovable.

7 Rising Art Stars to Watch: Claudia Maté

"Fucking prolific" is a phrase that comes to mind when paging through Claudia Maté's web portfolio. Just based on the thirty-nine websites, GIFs and videos on her site, you might think she's well into her late thirties. Her resume is equally long, listing exhibitions at MoMA, The Art Gallery of Ontario, and Wayne State University.

FW: AFC Weekly: Kink Doesn't (Quite) Stink

Dear Readers,


Not to toot our own horn, but you would not believe how good the blog has been this week.  


Our biggest story this week has been Whitney Kimball's "How Do People Feel About the Gramsci Monument: One Year Later," a follow-up to last year's report on Forest Houses residents' reactions to Thomas Hirschhorn's "Gramsci Monument." In interviews with residents, as well as Dia staff and Thomas Hirschhorn, she finds that the housing project is sorely in need of the type of social programs that had been provided by the monument.


Another big event this week: we released our "7 Rising Art Stars" interview series. So far we've released three of our seven art stars, Rebecca Patek, Aaron Williams, and Jack Early. The final four will be announced next week.


As for reviews, editorial fellow Andrew Wagner reviewed Christopher Williams's The Production Line of Happiness at MoMA and finds a couple of redeeming qualities to the show, but mostly, it's full of obscure references that not even the art-world insiders will get. Contributor Marc Boucai took a gander at Kink, a film produced by James Franco's studio. For a pretty sexy subject, it's a pretty clinical film.


All that and more below the fold.


Until next time,


Paddy, Whitney, and Corinna


How Do People Feel About the Gramsci Monument, One Year Later ?

One year after Thomas Hirschhorn's Gramsci Monument came down, I wondered: was this a net gain for a Bronx housing project? Or will it ultimately be remembered as art world conscience-laundering?
I went back to the Bronx for follow-up interviews.

7 Rising Art Stars to Watch: Rebecca Patek

This week and next we'll be featuring the work of seven artists we think you should keep an eye on. Not only are they making extraordinary work, but they're being recognized for it as well. We kick things off with Rebecca Patek.

7 Rising Art Stars to Watch: Aaron Williams

A brief look at Aaron Williams's work isn't going to get you anywhere. His spray painted crumpled posters look like Tauba Auerbach's work, his photos resemble photoshop gradients, and his routed paintings channel Joan Mitchell. Everything looks familiar. And that's not an accident. You have to spend time interpreting the references.

Christopher Williams at MoMA: Smart But Infuriating

Photographer Christopher Williams's current retrospective at MoMA, "Christopher Williams: The Production Line of Happiness", can feel a bit like he's playing a trick on viewers. It's a show that's built around withholding information, meaning that what you see is rarely the whole story.

Kink Doesn't Stink, But It Does Border On Banal

James Franco is constructing himself as a 21st century PT Barnum/Andy Warhol, taking viewers on a tour of our culture's current sexual oddities.

Art on TV: Artists Be Crazy

Artists on TV shows fall prey to plenty of stereotypes. (Artists be crazy, anyone?) Today we're just going to scratch the surface of the rainbow variety of as-seen-on-TV artist craziness with shows like Wilfred, Doctor Who, and Six Feet Under.

As We Now Know It, This Is the End of the Corcoran Gallery of Art

In what will be an endnote to be discussed for some time, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, one of the nation's oldest private museums, will be no more.

This Week's Must-See Art Events: Massive Insects and the Shadow World

This is a low energy week in New York City. Like last week and the week before, there are a handful of arty movies playing around the city. See a documentary about Chinese pollution, a George Kuchar film on the ultra-ordinary, The Royal Tenenbaums, and a documentary on the life of bugs.
If none of this is your bag, we recommend getting out of town. If you haven't had a chance to get upstate yet, end the week chilling in Storm King with classical music. It's late August, so treat yourself to art, nature, and free drinks while you still have the chance.
