Go With The Flow is a group show currently on view at The Hole that explores the use of sprayed paint by 19 contemporary artists. Ranging from atomized paint traditionally used on automotives, to airbrush and aerosol, the show’s works come to life on walls covered in plastic sheeting that one can only assume were placed to mimic the environment where the art was created, and not for cleaning up a Patrick Bateman type slaughter. Go With The Flow runs through August 23, 2014.

In all probability, BLADE has painted more subway cars than you have ever ridden on. By 1980, after reaching 5000 or so, the graffiti pioneer stopped counting. In this new 256-page book edited by Roger Gastman, BLADE sits down with Chris ‘FREEDOM’ Pape to reflect on a life of getaways, girls, and the golden years of graffiti. His story is one for the ages, and a must read for those fascinated with the “old” New York.
On a related note for those in NYC: This Friday (8/8) BLADE and Chris Pape will be at the Museum of the City of New York for a presentation and book signing in relation to their new book. More info on that here

Working with the New York City Department of Transportation who fabricated and installed each piece, Ryan McGinness’s new project Signs, 2014 features a series of fifty vinyl on aluminum signs posted around the streets of Manhattan. While technically on view until August 30, 2014, these public works of art are slowly falling victim to the underground entrepreneurial mindset of NYC, and disappearing from their present locations. Here, we look through some of the “Notes” about each piece published by Ryan McGinness Studios, as this might be the only chance you have to actually see the works.

Born on Christmas Eve in 1922, Ava Gardner was considered one of the best and most beautiful actresses of her generation. This physical blessing was most apparent in the company that the actress kept. Ava Gardner was married on three separate occasions to three different men; Mickey Rooney, Artie Shaw, and finally Frank Sinatra. Following her third divorce in 1957, Gardner went to Spain and hung out with Ernest Hemingway. She acted until 1986, and passed away in 1990.
