  • Who isn’t at least intrigued by Throbbing Gristle? I mean seriously.(via daily swarm)
  • Five thousand dollars in this time is five thousand dollars. Mother turns in her graffiti writing son for a reward. (via animalny)
  • Incredibly simple book cover design utilizing just a sheet of A4 (via crblog)
  • “Fairey’s assertion that the AP itself violated copyright laws when it used a photo of the artist’s “Hope” poster without getting permission. In other words, he’s arguing that the AP can’t reproduce an image by Fairey that the artist himself appropriated from the AP.” Ughh. This is starting to get ridiculous. Here is my favorite rebuttal to Faireys Huffpost blog about this recent move. (Via LAT)

  • Has Nicholas Bourriaud, curator of Tate Britain’s Altermodern, murdered the Curator. Even Art21 is giving the sideeye to the way the word curator is used nowadays: “DJ’s now talk about ‘curating’ musical sets; rock festivals are no longer organized, they’re ‘curated.’ So divorced has the term become from any notion of scholarship or care that it’s become another empty contemporary art signifier like ’sourced’ or ‘practice’ or ‘discourse’ that is barely on nodding terms with its original meaning, and exists merely to pad out skimpy press releases or grant applications.” (via art21)
  • “When Marcel Duchamp put a urinal in a New York gallery in 1917, it was a genuinely seditious act. But 1917 is almost a century away and what was once radical is now conservative.” Nick Cohen thinks that so much that poses as revolutionary thought in contemporary art is just so much warmed over……..
