In ways that she couldn't have possibly anticipated, Gal Gadot gave the world a great gift last week. When Gadot rounded up a bunch of her friends to sing lines from John Lennon's "Imagine" into their phones, she gave us all something that we can mercilessly clown while we're stuck in quarantine.

Take a Virtual Tour of 30 World-Class Museums & Safely Visit 2 Million Works of Fine Art

Since the first stirrings of the internet, artists and curators have puzzled over what the fluidity of online space would do to the experience of viewing works of art. At a conference on the subject in 2001, Susan Hazan of the Israel Museum wondered whether there is “space for enchantment in a technological world?” She referred to Walter Benjamin’s ruminations on the “potentially liberating phenomenon” of technologically reproduced art, yet also noted that “what was forfeited in this process we...

Good News: The Goodee Pop-Up Shop at the Whitney

Not long ago I met Canadian brothers Byron and Dexter Peart at the Whitney Museum in NYC for tea and to check out their Goodee Pop-Up Shop, which has been open since last November and is slated to stay put until early spring. I first became aware of Byron and Dexter through their luxury leather goods brand WANT Les Essentiels, which they founded in 2007; it quickly attracted a devoted following among style-conscious but understated urbanites. The brothers have that rare X-factor when it comes to...

I’m Looking for the Good in this Great Loss: A Reflection on Kobe’s Death

It felt different. It feels different. It don’t make sense. Kobe Bryant dying in a helicopter crash with his daughter, Gianna and 7 other people. Shit is wild to type out. It was wild to hear. A month later, it’s wild to even be saying it and knowing it’s real. After watching the memorial for Kobe and Gigi, I’m sitting here drained and spent. Yes, people die every day. Celebrities who we love pass on and we grieve them. This one feels different. It feels chaotic in a way where it feels like the...

Anaheim Ducks’ 5 Worst Trades in Franchise History

With the trade deadline once again here, the Anaheim Ducks find themselves in unfamiliar territory. The team will be bonafide sellers for the second year in a row and already got the ball rolling by sending Ondrej Kase to the Boston Bruins last week. We’ll have to wait and see how that move turns out, but there are plenty of trades that haven’t worked out for Anaheim. Here are five trades that we’ve labelled as the worst of the worst. 5. Beauchemin for Gardiner and Lupul Feb. 11, 2011 –...

Mexican Muralists Changed the Course of 20th-Century American Art. A New Exhibit Explores Their Influence

Jackson Pollock’s best-known influences include European greats like Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró. But often overlooked is the artist’s time at New York’s Experimental Workshop, founded in 1936 by David Alfaro Siqueiros, who along with Diego Rivera and José Clemente Orozco made up “los tres grandes” who led the postrevolution Mexican muralism movement. Siqueiros founded the Workshop in New York City in 1936, guided by the philosophy that in order to make truly radical art, artists must ...

Disrupt Yourself: Play To Your Distinctive Strengths

Personal Disruption (n.): The act of using a practice employed by companies — wherein a product deemed inferior by the market leader (Amazon v. Borders, Uber v. Yellow Cab) eventually upends the industry — and applying it to yourself and your career. As the co-founder of a boutique investment firm with Clayton Christensen, Whitney Johnson came to realize that the frameworks of disruption not only apply to innovation and investing, but to individuals. She outlines the guardrails that speed our pr...

‘Anything Good in This Country Has Had to Be Wrestled Free.’ What Whitney Houston’s Rendition of the National Anthem Taught Me About America

“No union is more profound than marriage, for it ­embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice and family,” the pastor said at our wedding ceremony, borrowing from Justice Anthony Kennedy’s opinion in Obergefell v. Hodges, the Supreme Court case that made same-sex marriage equality the law of the land. I realize now that I didn’t understand the gravity of those words. Everything I did that day was a leap of faith, but when you’re in a church, all you need is faith, isn...

Radical Women: Stream the Getty’s Podcast That Features Six Major 20th-Century Artists, All Female

Only recently has “actor” become an acceptable gender-neutral term for performers of stage and screen. Prior to that, we had “actor” and “actress,” and while there may have been some problematic assumptions concerning the type of woman who might be drawn to the profession, there was arguably linguistic parity between the two words. Not so for artists. In the not-so-distant past, female artists invariably found themselves referred to as “female artists.” Not great, when male artists were referr...

Red-light cameras certainly are legal in some cities

Q. Recently my friend received a “courtesy notice” from the Garden Grove Police Department. Enclosed were a few photos of his vehicle at an intersection. It stated they want him to make an appointment to view the video of his vehicle going 15 mph through a red light. Are photo-enforcement pictures allowed as a way of giving someone a traffic citation? Is this legal to do at intersections? – Gayle Brierly, Los Angeles A. Honk wishes he didn’t know so much about red-light runners caught on camera ...
