Chris Ofili, New Museum

Chris Ofili’s Day and Night at The New Museum

  • A list of Internet firsts. Satisfying in the way then and nows always are. [FX]
  • The first color footage of Joni Mitchell singing. This video is shot in Canada. [Dangerous Minds]
  • The key to making a good painting? Dope, according to Snoop Dog. [Hyperallergic]
  • Michael Miller raises an eyebrow at the idea that a biennial will do much to raise the hopes of those in New Orleans living in poverty. [Artnews]
  • Let the New Museum’s Chris Ofili reviews come in: Jerry Saltz tells us the show is breathtaking. [Vulture]
  • Gallerist has turned into an unreadable site filled with celebrity news so boring we can’t imagine celebrities even wanting to read it. #sinkingships [New York Observer]
  • Kenny Schachter complains of the annoying art fair trend of leaving art unlabeled, and goes over all the fairly priced and not so fairly priced offerings. Pretty useful, if you’re a collector. [Artnews]
  • Imagine you have all the money in the world. What do you do with it? How about commissioning a naked portrait of yourself posed as Marilyn Monroe by London street artist Pegasus. This is how Lindsay Lohan is spending her money. [Evening Standard].
  • Pharrell Williams teams up with artist Ryan McGinely to make an Adidas commercial promoting gender and racial equality, and sports wear. [Artnet News]

AFC Spotlight: AFC’s Resident Designer Opens a Gallery

Phillip Niemeyer, “100 New Jobs For 100 Years” for the Boston Globe

As many of our readers are well aware, AFC runs on a dedicated network of folks who donate art, who suffer long lines at the post office, who swallow 12 hot dogs in under a minute, who make GIFs for our background, and who design every single pamphlet, publication, and promo material we’ve ever put out.

That last person is Phillip Niemeyer, aka, the design firm Double Triple. Sound of Art? That was Phillip. The high-low majesty of branding around the Art F City Rob Pruitt Art Awards and Auction? Phillip again. “The Past Ten Years” print donated to our Lynda Benglis-themed Christmas fundraiser? Thank-you, Phillip.

Niemeyer recently opened the Austin-based art space Northern-Southern, a rare crossover between art and design, akin to New York’s P!. In keeping with the unpretentious spirit of Double Triple, Northern-Southern begins its shows with simple elements wide open to interpretation: LUCK. HAPPINESSBUTTONS. LETTERS.

The latest, WINDOWS 14, presents objects to be looked at and looked through.

As usual, Niemeyer collects a mix of artists and designers from all over the map: Elana Adler, Brooklyn artist with a background in textiles; New York-to-Austin transfer and painter Jeana Baumgardner; still life photographer Dan Forbes; the Service Bureau designer Colin Frazer; and more. The full artist list:

Elana Adler, Jeana Baumgardner, Shawn Camp, Hannah Cole, Dan Forbes, Colin Frazer, Adreon Denson Henry, David R Head Jr, The mysterious writers of the IChing, Paul Kremer, Phillip Niemeyer, Marsha Owett, Vincent Venturella

And if you appreciate the simple brilliance of, say, branding our ham-themed art world Roast around a Helen Frankenthaler-esque ham slice (and we do) then you may need to see this sensibility applied to curating.

More Progress on the Arts Workers’ Front

AHA

We’re glad to see that The Art Handlers Alliance of New York exists. The organization works to secure health benefits, fair wages, job protection for the thousands of handlers working in the city. Tuesday November 4th they will finalize their Bill of Rights at Momenta, which they are encouraging institutions to follow. Additionally, they’re talking about instituting all kinds of services; a legal workshop on the new sick day law, formalizing a job-referral network and hosting quarterly openings showcasing the work of members in the alliance.

These are all needed services. So, if you’re a handler, join them this Tuesday at 6:30 pm. There’s free beer. Hat tip: ASAP

Thanks, Art: Relive the Glory Days of Windows 93

Post image for Thanks, Art: Relive the Glory Days of Windows 93

Screen Shot 2014-10-29 at 11.53.06 AM

Here’s a great way to whittle away some work hours: Windows93 is a net art project that has all the programs you used to load on your PC. That means a defragger that never gets past 3 percent, the oldest GIF on the Internet, and a virus that dissolves your desktop. The only thing missing? Nethack.

Really invest some time to dick around on this. You can play old Solitaire. Download weird PNGs and discover pop-up advice from a wizard. (DON’T CLICK THE HYDRA.) They’ve even included the telnet ASCII Star Wars animation, which you can watch by clicking through the “movies” file.

Best of all? You can navigate web 2.0 through the Cat Explorer browser. There’s really no need to ever go back to Chrome.

GIF of the Day: Not the Soup I Ordered

johnnyWoods_SoupV1.gif

Fans of burnt pizza doctor may have a special place in their hearts for Johnny Woods, the creator of today’s GIF: a small preview of the artist’s repertoire. Walker has actualized such scenarios as the NSFW flailing dance of sex; the psychedelic journeys of the Flying Toaster and the family vehicle; and music video for Outkast’s Big Boi.

If any of our readers are still in possession of a VHS player, then you can purchase some of Woods’s work on videotape from the experimental animation label Everything Unseen.

Woman Who Got Catcalled In NYC Is Now Getting Rape Threats On Internet

Woman Who Got Catcalled In NYC Is Now Getting Rape Threats On Internet

Walking down the street or writing on the Internet shouldn’t be some radical, defiant act, but unfortunately it can be for women and LGBTQ people, who are disproportionately harassed both on the street and in cyberspace (GamerGate, what?). That’s what a powerful video by nonprofit Hollaback!, an anti-street harassment initiative, demonstrated on Tuesday, documenting the 100+ catcalls Shoshana B. Roberts received during a 10-hour walk through New York City. And just as predictably, yet obviously shocking, the objectifying comments have been followed by death and rape threats online.

Together, members of Hollaback! and Roberts have received 10 death threats via e-mail since the video went viral. “We’ve had so many people reach out saying, ‘Thank God, this is exactly what my day looks like,’ or people who were shocked, saying, ‘I had no idea that this is what women face. I’m so grateful,’” Hollaback! co-founder Emily May told the Wall Street Journal. “But we’ve also gotten this tremendous backlash from people saying just horrific things and a number of violent threats.”

The YouTube commenters are probably the worst, ranging from dudes who don’t understand why catcalling is never welcome, commenters saying “the slut was asking for it” and even, yes, rape threats.

Interestingly, the idea for the video came from not a woman — who are so used to this shit — but a male filmmaker named Rob Bliss. According to the WSJ, he “approached Hollaback! with the idea in August after his girlfriend told him stories of being harassed while walking down the street.”

“I felt like no one had really clearly demonstrated what street harassment looks like,” he said. “No had shown the world what it looks and feels like to a person.” Now we just need a creative team to document what it feels like to be a woman on the Internet.
