Takashi Murakami, Japan's rock star artist, unveils 10-metre 'stupid cat painting'

Made of 502 silkscreens, the new work is the largest piece to ever enter the Art Gallery of NSW’s international collection. Murakami calls it a ‘stupid thing’Takashi Murakami – rock-star artist, celebrity enthusiast, social media king, ComplexCon hero and the man who coined the Superflat movement – is tired of making art.“When I am sitting in this art world, I am super bored … every day, every moment making the same reaction, the same words,” he shrugs, looking, despite his 57 years, like a smal...

Grappling With The Purpose Of The Public Library

If public libraries are not for the rich, they probably are not otherwise for the poor. To understand the public library as a benevolent form of welfare would be to entirely miss the radical potential of the institution as a political project. It isn’t utopian, nor is about culturing the masses, nor offering the marginalized a space where they mustn’t “pay for coffee.” – The Baffler

BWW Review: Boffo Belter Klea Blackhurst Is In The Zone As Cole Porter's PANAMA HATTIE

After enchanting Broadway sophisticates with his fizzy entertainments of the 1920s and 30s, Cole Porter went decidedly middle-brow at the start of the next decade with a trio of musicals about average Janes and Joes, all including some swell comical characters serving in the U.S, military.

An LA Art Colony Has Been Home To Artists For 30 Years. This Month The Rents Doubled Or Tripled…

The Santa Fe Art Colony was established in 1986 with public funds through the Community Redevelopment Agency, allowing for the adaptive reuse of factory buildings into artist studios. A 30-year agreement set rent restrictions on 85% of the 57 units. That agreement expired in 2016, but because the previous owners didn’t notify tenants of a rent increase, the city imposed a stay until 2017. After Fifteen Group purchased the property, it raised the rent on the small number of market-rate un...

Spectacular, robotic cardboard sculptures

Greg Olijnyk works as a 2D graphic designer, but his hobby is creating unbelievably wonderful 3D science fictional cardboard sculptures that sport motors and lights that animate them (some use photovoltaic cells for power, too). He told Colossal's Laura Staugaitis: "every piece has the limitations and advantages of the cardboard material in mind, how it bends, how strong it will be, etc. I can't tell if he sells these, but I covet them with the intensity of a thousand suns

Why Do Movies About Classic Authors Have To Be So Serious… So Dull?

Let us count the ways in which we’ve been force-fed dour, vitamin-deficient biopics of our favorite authors. Why. So. Serious. On top of being ponderous, such work bristles with the insecurity of filmmakers timidly making the case for long-dead writers; every hushed scene screams the anxious question: Will people take their work seriously if we don’t present them seriously? – New York Magazine

Fight Between Netflix And Movie Theatre Owners Led To Odd Theatre Availability Of “Irishman”

The major exhibitors typically insist on a 72-day period of exclusivity for the films that play on their screens.

"Lair" Book Documents Supervillains' Great Taste in Architecture

Judging by their lairs, most movie supervillains do their undergrad in Architecture before getting a Masters in Megalomania. Their hideaways and command centers are always these crazy Modernist or Brutalist structures, coastally situated and with sleek living rooms, gigantic conference tables and the de rigueur electronic World Domination maps on the wall. Because no one would take Scaramanga seriously if he was operating out of a split-level ranch in Dayton, or a studio in Bushwick.Miami-based ...

When Indigenous Land Is Acknowledged Before A Performance, For Whom Is It Really Being Done?

Lauren Wingenroth considers reasons for and ways of doing this without it becoming an empty or token gesture. – Dance Magazine

How Newspaper Syndicates Homogenized Popular Taste In The 20th Century
