Another Austin City Limits – this time with a little ART. Big thanks to Emily Clark, Sarah Muench, Tony Tuzzolino, Patricia de la Rosa, Guadalupe Maria Delgadillo and Maria San Esteban… couldn’t have done it without them! (This photo courtesy of Kari Fisher… Thanks!!) The chicken wire didn’t carry the light down the tubes as well as vellum… and why don’t they make fireproof vellum? Check out more photos on ACL’s flickr site. I love this one!
Magda is working up a BIG project at Etsy headquarters in Dumbo, Brooklyn. This is the beginning. We stopped by today to get a feel for the installation, make some friends and eat some amazing food. Julie is coordinating the project with Etsy, and Arnetta is opening up new worlds over at the Fashion Institute of Technology. This installation could not be happening without these amazing people and many more at the Etsy Labs. And yes, we even covered the […]
[photo courtesy of Caitlin Stevens] Marfa is a magical mecca for modern art in the West Texas desert. Unlikely? A little bit. Donald Judd immigrated there from New York in the 70′s, acquiring old ranches, military forts and other old west type buildings and reclaiming them with his art. Since his death in the 90′s, tons of artists have continued to trek to Marfa, or live there. Enter El Cosmico. It’s like a hotel of sorts, but the rooms are […]
SKY.it posted a video with a sneak peak of Il Lusso Essenziale, the Roman festival I tagged this month. And yes – that’s right. My first gallery installation. The video is all in Italian, but the article is handily translated by google here. Thanks Rome, for being good to me. More recap and pictures coming soon.
I’m in Rome, setting up for Il Lusso Essenziale [and on Facebook here], a Roman arts festival that celebrates “the rediscovery of the extraordinary nature of everyday life,” or, the luxury of the essential. This Smart Car is only the first bit of my participation…
We’re gearing up for Art Week Austin with new pieces. Yesterday the lamp post in front of Domy Books was hit with argyle. More installations will be up today and all week. I’ll be tweeting about it as I go. Hope to see ya’ll around! (more pictures after the jump…)
I was invited to be part of a show in LA where artists were asked to reinterpret the paper doll. I conveniently added toilet to the beginning of that title. There are random memories we all carry with us into adult hood. For me, knitted and crocheted toilet paper roll holders are one of them . I would see different interpretations of these (as well as wine bottle covers and tissue cozies) at the church bazaar when I was a […]
I think it has been dark and dreary everywhere, so the knitta in me had to do something about it. These days I have really enjoyed wrapping the ubiquitous signless pole. If this is not self explanatory, it is a pole that stands for no reason. It may have had a stop sign, or street sign, or (more often) a “no parking” sign, but now it is just a pole. Here are some recent ones I warmed up in Austin. […]
