As a programming virtuoso, Robak disrupts virtual ideologies and aestheticizes game imagery through playful cyber subversions. The gallery-goer will find herself riding a looping roller coaster one moment; browsing through sleek refrigerator goods in another; and settling down for a cozy picnic in stunning simulated landscapes. The widget-witted Robak offers us a comprehensive… [read more »]

Nicholas O’Brien interviews founders of Net Artist Daily Anthony Antonellis and Arjun Srivatsa. Nicholas O’Brien: I’m wondering if you can talk about how this project is a form of “gentle trolling.” Arjun Srivatsa I started @netartistdaily because I wanted to anonymously send notifs to my favorite artists. The tweets include familiar net art rituals as well as common everyday tasks. Most of my art projects are based around defining shared actions, objects and experiences within… [read more »]
If you’ve never experienced a single design by Andre Walker you should know that Andre Walker is an outrage. His unorthodox designs made him a perpetually emerging fashion designer until he left his namesake to become a creative director and consultant for Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, and Kim Jones. His list of credits date back to the ‘80s; staging his first runway show in the Oasis, a Brooklyn club, at age 15. Walker had brief… [read more »]
Sci-Fi & Fantasy proudly presents the self-titled debut by Headlock. The first LP on Lamin Fofana’s Sci-Fi & Fantasy label, Headlock inaugurates NYC-based artist Lou DiBenedetto’s latest project of the same name. Recorded with a small array of hardware synths in loose, improvisational sessions, the album’s ambient drones are stubbornly pure in form–no beats, vocals or samples to be found. The result has an intimacy that complements solitude and shared rapture alike. Headlock Release Party… [read more »]
Self Interruption opens tomorrow, Sunday, October 20th. The self-interrupting body, the image of a stalled system or device. Though distinct in their methods, these artists mesh industrial practices into an artistic tradition, specifically the mechanism of photography.
Posthuman artist and body-dramatist Xavier Cha is hosting a conceptual performance as part of the Lyon Biennale on October 19th and 20th. Consistent with Cha’s aesthetic background, the piece will explore the fragmented relationship between subjectivity and postindustrial society in a time when self-representation is increasingly mediated by the omnipresence of digital voyeurism. The spatial and temporal compression endemic to technologies of cognitive capitalism will be taken up as the object of an emergent flexible… [read more »]
J.W. Anderson No one does repetition like J.W. Anderson. Each look is beautifully repeated 2-3 times in different color ways, resulting in sudden cognizance of even the most unfamiliar garment. His fetish for neatness is taken to OCD levels, creating something ironically opulent and concisely restrained. But it’s somehow casually obsessive, with relaxed ruching, and noncommittal sweaters hung like necklaces. It’s no surprise that LVMH has taken a stake in his company and anointed him… [read more »]

Paris Fashion Week highlight #2! Model Hollie-May Saker was totally irritated by the two FEMEN ‘Sextremists’ that stormed by her on the Nina Ricci runway and held up her hand in uninvited solidarity. Post-show, she tweeted “Have fun scrubbing that shit off your body silly bitch.” But despite Hollie-May’s “#karmascoming” threat, FEMEN was a much needed addition to the otherwise unmentionable Nina Ricci Spring collection. For just a moment they were able to perfectly disable… [read more »]
