Opening as part of the Armory Center For Arts Installations Inside/Out 20th Anniversary Exhibition, Barry McGee has created an off-site installation in the city of Pasadena.
Barry McGee, untitled
2 E. Holly Street, Pasadena
Installation: September 19 – December 31, 2009
Space is open to the public Saturdays and Sundays noon – 5 p.m.
Given his sources in street art, Barry McGee’s temporary work for the exhibition is unusual compared to the normal site of an outdoor painting. The artist chose an unused storefront near the Armory. McGee’s work, covering almost all the walls of the store, is made up of a large number of his complex geometric paintings on thin pieces of wood on which he has done additional painting.
TOMS is debuting the Cordone, a lace-up oxford style shoe. I always thought you had to be a certain type to wear TOMS… I think this is the shoe that won me over. Check out the interview with founder, Blake Mycoskie, over at ValetMag.
side note: 300,000 pairs of TOMS shoes will be given away this year.

Our friend Cleon Peterson opens up up a new show, The Unconsoled, at A.L.I.C.E. in Brussels, Belgium this Saturday.
“I paint an anxiety-ridden dystopia where corruption and injustice plague the social order. Deviance prevails, as desperate characters struggle for power and control over their environment. The individual is displaced and forced to navigate this brutal world alone, finding hollow bits of pleasure and meaning in violence, sex, religion and drugs. The crowd is an erratic mob-like authority bending outsiders to its will. It’s a gray world where lawbreakers and law enforcers are one and the same: a world where ethics have been abandoned in favor of what every individual believes he’s entitled to. ”
The new track from Massive Attack, Splitting the Atom EP, a very nice listen, Also check out Pray for Rain featuring Guy Garvey from Elbow Tunde, from TV On The Radio, a perfect song for today after the jump.
