You only have one more month to see this show in person at the Berkeley Art Museum. After that, you’ll have to settle for these pics above.
On view until December 9th.
This past Saturday night, a large survey of work by Matta, Rammellzee, Futura, and Phase 2 opened in the Meatpacking District. Curated by Nemo Librizzi and Joseph Nahmad, the dramatically lit Deep Space presented massive canvases connecting the 1970s work of Chilean artist Matta with that of the art created by New York City subway writers in the 1980s. A lively crowd filled the open space, accompanied by the cool jazzy tunes that acted as the center of energy for the show.

A fairly boring look at last night’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show through the lens of instagram.
Just a small gallery of nice images from the San Francisco-based photographer.

Over 8,000 Kurdish refugees have fled their native Syria to Domez Camp in the Semi Autonomous Region of Iraqi Kurdistan. The Kurds of Syria have found themselves stuck in the middle between all sides of Syria’s deadly and complex civil war. Historically oppressed by the Syrian regime tand fearful of Islamic extremists in the ranks of the opposition gaining a strong hold in the new Syria, the Kurds feel their is no one they can trust in the conflict. After decades of systematic oppression their fight has always been for Kurdish rights and they refuse to lose sight of that goal while they attempt to remain neutral during the conflict. For how long the Kurds will be able to maintain that neutrality is yet to be seen as forces out of their control close in by the day. As the Kurdish leadership strategize the direction for their people thousands of civilians have fled in fear as the spill over from the war has reached their doors.
Kurdish refugees flee to Iraqi Kurdistan from as far as Afrin in Syria’s Northwest and Damascus rather then move to closer camps in Turkey and Jordan where they fear prejudice and discrimination for being Kurdish. The journey covers thousands of kilometers over dangerous land and territory that is in the grips of anarchy and war. Not all those who start the journey finish it.
While distraught by what is happening in their homeland the Kurds hold on to a new hope that has begun to flicker due to the conflict. When the dust settles the end result may produce a new Autonomous region for the Kurds in Syria, much like their hosts and neighbors in Iraq. It is a glimmer of light in the darkness that has otherwise surrounded the bleak landscape of Syria for the Kurdish population. In the meantime the Syrian Kurds in Domez Camp can only watch with the rest of the world as their country falls deeper in chaos and they struggle with their new lives as refugees in an ever growing camp with limited resources being stretched thinner by the day.
This past Saturday we hosted a Halloween party with Eddie Huang at the King & Grove in Williamsburg. Here is some visual evidence of the fun that was had.
