  • The poor man tour of Art Basel courtesy of Supertouch, Art Fag City, and The Worlds Best Ever (twice)
  • I have become increasingly curious as to how the world of latino art is transforming with a new generation of artists whose experience in America is different from the social fights of the 60’s and 70’s. Well OG LA Artist Mark Vallen sets it all straight for us. His insight – don’t forget where you are coming from
  • When I was a kid I would love to go to my grandmothers house and look at all of the old LIFE magazines. It seemed to make the world so much larger yet somehow everything was connected. Well Google just teamed up with Life to host it’s photo archives.
  • Birth of Cool” a retrospective show of the work of influential African American artist Barkley Hendricks is open at the Studio Museum of Harlem. Looking at Hendricks’ work you begin to unravel the narrative line between his paintings in the 70’s and that of artists like Kehinde Wiley today. (via NY Times)
