AD BOOK


AD BOOK is an e-book that consists entirely of advertisements for artists, galleries, publications, businesses, and anything arts related. Through both open call and invitation, BFFA3AE received over 200 ads from emerging and established artists and institutions from New York, London, and elsewhere. AD BOOK contributors purchased ad space based on a price determined by BFFA3AE’s own invented system of value. Each ad—like all great advertising—teeters at the edge of expression, promotion, and common sense. Taken as a whole, AD BOOK testifies to how perverse and diverse any self-respecting marketplace of ideas ought to be. With an introduction by Artforum publisher Knight Landesman.

DISmiss presents Genesis Breyer P-Orridge

Genesis Breyer P-Orridge is one of the few living artists people call legendary without hesitation. Since the late ‘60s, the avant-garde provocateur has helmed a wildly prolific career as a groundbreaking performance artist, inventor of industrial music, writer, confrontational thinker, and “wrecker of civilization,” as deemed by Parliament upon P-Orridge’s eight-year exile from Britain in the early ‘90s. Few words are profound enough to match the astounding story of such a shapeshifting radical, someone who has,… [read more »]

Siblings Gino and Leslie make plop art cute — one public sculpture at a time.

Gino & Leslie are New Jersey-based siblings with a passion for sculpture. Or, more accurately, a passion for having their photos taken in front of publically accessible sculptures. Ranging from Josephine Meckseper’s temporary installation ‘Manhattan Oil Project’ to a small Tau Beta Pi honor society sculpture in the garden at NYU. Jumping on a ~*future_trend*~ prior to the ArtSelfie phenomenon, these sibs turn public art into destinations for their self-directed adventure.     The sibling’s… [read more »]

Discerning the Darkness: Wyatt Niehaus’s  ‘Lights Out’

“In post-Fordism, there exists a permanent disproportion between ‘labor time’ and the more ample ‘production time.’” — Paolo Virno1 Lights Out, Wyatt Niehaus’s first solo show, was held last Saturday evening at Retrospective Gallery, the relatively new venture between Joel Mesler and Zach Feuer (opening in January of this year).
