Our thoughts go out to the country of France and all those with affiliations to the staff of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, who were attacked today by multiple lunatic terrorist gunmen during the magazine’s daily editorial meeting at their offices in Paris.
We interview Brooklyn-based artist Tessa Perutz about Massif Central, a company she founded that produces a line of contemporary art scarves featuring artists such as Tal R, Jonas Wood, Keegan McHargue, and Joshua Abelow.
When/Why did you start Massif Central?
MC was officially launched in April 2014 but it had been a work in progress for a year before that. I have always been interested in the artist’s relationship to society’s common landscape (ie: fashion, urban design, furniture, etc). I wanted to ask artists to reflect upon their 2-D practice and envision their works in a more fluid manner, specifically in relation to adorning the body. I wanted to give a real physical and tactile space for these wonderful works of art to exist. We are so privileged in modern society to be able to see and experience such phenomenal art up close, but we are almost never physically involved in the works, especially paintings. I wanted to get as close to that experience as possible, actually “feeling” these works.
This past Friday, a creative crowd packed into The Standard, High Line to celebrate artist Romon Yang’s (a.k.a. ROSTARR) mural commission for the rooftop at Le Bain. Christos Katsiaouni was at the hotel to capture the scene.
One of our good friends got injured pretty bad in a snowboarding accident in Vermont this past February. To help handle all of the crazy costs that will come into play in the future, Bradley’s wide network of creative friends have set up an online auction to raise money and ensure that Bradley has everything he needs to make a full recovery.
