Tresspass: A history of uncommissioned Urban art

This is a great historical book about Street art culture, the counter-active art movement. You can grab a copy at TASHEN 107 Greene Street. Check out Sara and Marc Schiller of Woostercollective discuss the new book.


I found her info on GIAF 2010 photos by 4heads-Governors Island Art Fair. I think her work is cool. For more images of Elizabeth Hoy's work click here.

Tchotchke Stacks

Nicole Klagsbrun Gallery is showing Tchotchke Stacks by Patrick Jackson. The exhibition will run from September 10th to October 23rd.
The works in this show are made of found tchotchkes, layered between sheets of glass and stacked to human height. All the objects are selected and arranged based on their scale, and ability to hold weight. Their subject matter is completely random and, for the most part, unconsidered. Materials are found randomly at very random places. The tchotchkes are arranged by the ability to hold weight. Strongest at the bottom and the most fragile on top. I was very nervous that I would make a mess of the exhibition by knocking over something with my purse.

Carnival in New York

October 8 - 11, 2010

Park Avenue Armory presents an extraordinary four-day, indoor Carnival that’s fun for the entire family—a whimsical and theatrical event combining the classic and the contemporary, featuring breathtaking performances and authentic carnival rides and games. With a massive fifty-foot Ferris wheel as its centerpiece, the Wade Thompson Drill Hall is transformed into a fantastical Carnival featuring an array of performances in a specially-designed theater, magicians from the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus, and performances by stilt-walkers, jugglers, and contortionists. The Carnival will also feature picnic areas, a range of traditional carnival concessions, and educational workshops in the circus arts—including balloon sculpture, juggling, and pantomime.

Trapped wave

RYMAN manipulates and reconstitutes an inherited visual language, defining himself in relation to it. His intuitive and spontaneous process is propelled and determined primarily by the characteristics of his media. Manipulating materials such as wood, metal, velcro, Gorilla Glue, staples and scraps from his studio floor, RYMAN’s assemblages are physical and humorous.

September 9 - October 31, 2010
