Once again it is that time of year when for roughly three weeks Santa’s Ghetto comes to life and art is sold to the public in a haphazard fashion. For the first time in its brief history, Santa’s Ghetto is leaving the motherland for the climatic opposite, a former chicken shop in Bethlehem, Palestine. On top of setting up a stellar show featuring the likes of Banksy, Swoon, Ron English, Aiko, and more, the Artists will continue painting all along the border wall just as Banksy had done in 2005. This public artwork will be epic. The show will run through December 25th, with an online shop to satisfy those unable to make the trip. All proceeds go to the kids. Check their site daily as there will be updates.
It will be interesting to watch how this event plays out.
More info at Santa’s Ghetto and a great article at the Times Online

After hitting all the gallery show’s this weekend, head over to the LES New Museum, for the 30 hour opening sponsored by target. ….”We have now officially given out the entire number of allotted timed tickets for Target 30 Free Hours. We expect that there will be a some tickets returned and some unused, thus it may be possible for visitors to show up during the course of the marathon event and get a ticket on the spur of the moment; but there is absolutely no guarantee!”

While these are not all of the shows this month, this is what stands out. A Basel/Miami section is to come, but that is an entirely different matter. Too much good stuff.

T-Magazine’s new Holiday website. Check out the NYTimes “T-Magazine” flash site for the holidays. One nice feature, when you view the Natalie Portman article, is that it has the option of images only. It’s a real nice interactive site so have a look.
Based on the poster it looks “good”. Maybe a bit like nip/tuck meets stargate? Will the actual show be any good? Who knows, Fox’s new mid-season series “Terminator, The Sarah Connors Chronicles”, airs Jan 13-14. Check out the website here.

You have to love pieces of jewelry with name Hooker Medallions. Natalia Fabia, whose show Hooker Safari is now on at Corey Helford Gallery in LA, created these limited edition Hooker Medallions for daily wear and strut. Hooker is such a great word.
