Sure the show isn’t up any longer, but that doesn’t mean it can’t live on through the internet. Featuring artists with affiliations to Kinfolk, the Williamsburg-by-Japan mecca of culture, the family show was a banger. Next up in the Kinfolk 94 space is a one night only affair tomorrow night (1/22) for The Flop Box’s ABC Zine release party featuring some of your favorite graffiti artists. Enjoy.
Call it guilt by association, because that’s exactly what happened to 43-year-old Mami Urakawa, who was apprehended by Osaka police Wednesday after being identified in a cctv video hanging out with her boyfriend CLET as he added some humor to a street sign in the Japanese city. A “partner both in crime and life,” Urakawa took the rap for her man’s crimes and admitted to participation in the vinyl alterations to the city’s traffic signs which had been targeted by CLET as “symbols of authority that he seeks to challenge through art.” So you must be wondering where dude is during all of this? Well, he’s currently back in Florence, Italy where the couple resides, posting to facebook and sorting out what to do.
A look through some of CLET’s work, below.

Last night, psychedelic reigned supreme as artists Jonah Freeman and Justin Lowe took over Liberty Hall at the Ace Hotel for a blacklight-filled basement installation in promotion of the film Inherent Vice. Accompanied by a performance from Psychic Ills, the intimate gathering proved to be a worthy trek for attendees on an otherwise frozen night.
For those who missed the opening party, the installation is open to the public at Liberty Hall from 12-8pm until January 11th.

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.

Since the internet loves making bold statements, we made one ourselves. Just keep on clicking and you’ll be sure to find something you like… and can probably not afford.

Christos Katsiaouni was in the mix last weekend when Creative Time celebrated their 2014 Fall Ball at Neuehouse with two consecutive nights of partying. Friday night saw 200 overnight guests arrive for a sleepover featuring all night fun including video projections by Marco Brambilla and SPACE PROGRAM Rice & Beans by Tom Sachs. Saturday night, the energy continued with a dance party over two levels of the Flatiron event and office space. With nonstop energy flowing for 48 hours, whether anyone actually got any sleep is up for debate.
