The ART of Creating Controversy at Wellesley College!
The statue, called Sleepwalker (pictured above), is part of a new art exhibit featuring sculptor Tony Matelli at the Wellesley College Davis Museum. The exhibit, New Gravity, features sculptures that are often reversed, upended or atomized. Staged dramatically among galleries on two floors of the Davis, the exhibition will also extend beyond the museum walls to sculptures sited outdoors on campus.
It’s been reported that a junior at this all girls college has started a petition at change.org to have this sculpture removed. This reminds me of when the sensation show was in Brooklyn and people were up in arms about that exhibit.
I offer my compliments to Tony Matelli; as this is clearly a successful thought-provoking piece of art. The New York-based artist must be enjoying all the controversy that his work creating. Ha, his realistic looking sleepwalker is doing a better job advertising the New Gravity exhibit, then any real human seems to be ;).
Tony Matelli: New Gravity” will be on view through May 11 and July 20, in various galleries around the Wellesley College campus.

Prepping for the wet/sticky bandits. east village, nyc.
- hanksy

Attention Street & Graffiti Artists!

Steven Heller just posted this amazing article on his blog titled Home Alone with Hanksy’s House Painters

Hansky has built quite the name for himself in the New York and LA area over the past few years. The above pictures of his Stairway to Kevin piece (notice the hanging paint can), is one of the best I’ve seen; since i stumbled upon his Catch Me If You Can a few years ago (also pictured above).

Since most of us missed this opening and might not be able to make this week long show, I’m really looking forward to the film being made by No Your City documenting the process in transforming the space prior to demolition!

Ron Mueck 2014 Exhibitions

The Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain is delighted to have welcomed more than 300 000 visitors on the exhibition of the Australian sculptor Ron Mueck. His return, eight years after its first exhibition, signs the historical record for the Institution since its creation in 1984.

Conceived by the Fondation Cartier, the Ron Mueck exhibition will be presented from November 16th, 2013 till February 23rd, 2014 to the Proa Foundation in Buenos Aires and from March 19th until June 1, 2014 to the Museum of Modern Art of Rio de Janeiro.

I have had the pleasure of seeing Rons work in person and it is truly amazing and realistic!! Ron is pictured below working on one of his amazing creations. You can watch an amazing video of David Lynch describing being in the presence of Ron and his realistic sculptures: David Lynch meets Ron Mueck at the Fondation Cartier Exhibition, Paris. April 2013.

"Remember, remember/ All we fight for!”

I attended an amazing Fundraiser for the Rail Park @ Union Transfer in Philadelphia last night. One of my favorite bands, The Walkmen (pictured above) headlined the night after announcing earlier in the week that this show would be their final performance together.

I was going to write something about going to see The Walkmen over the past 10+ years but then I came across this amazing piece Slow Burn, Slow Fade: Inside The Walkmen’s Final Days  by I don’t think I could have crafted a better post! :)

Here is a small excerpt from the article Ryan posted this morning, It’s a must read for music fans! Click above to read more.

[For years now, the Walkmen have steadily accrued near-unanimous critical acclaim, while witnessing little of the commercial rewards some of their peers have as the lines between the indie rock world and the mainstream blurred. After a decade-plus of that, it has to become a somewhat wearying experience. “It’s hard to keep that fight as a healthy fight,” he concedes. “That’s neither here nor there, though. We did great. We had a good time.”

Whatever happens or doesn’t happen in terms of the Walkmen’s future, one thing is certain: everyone agrees that if it comes back, it won’t be in any sort of the same form. “Whatever that was, that was it, through that record,” Bauer says, almost sounding as if he no longer even knows of the band we’re discussing. “Whatever happens next will be very different. It’s good for that. It’s a break. Not a time break. A break from that reality.” That reality, he’ll admit, is a hard one to picture abandoning totally and forever. “This has never happened before. This is the first time we’ve felt like this. We haven’t talked about music in two years,” he says, but in the same breath qualifying, “I think that eventually we’ll do something else again. I think we’re too good of friends not to.” Right now, nobody will venture to guess what that will mean, and Pete Bauer always uses past tense verbs.]

P.S. THANK YOU Marisa for pulling me backstage to get the guys to sign my Bows + Arrows LP! You ROCK!!
