Kehinde Wiley at Deitch Projects

Opening this Saturday at Deitch Projects, Kehinde Wiley’s latest show, Down, will be huge.  And by huge, I mean that it consists of 6 or 7 gigantic paintings.  And by gigantic, I mean gigantic.

Banksy gives statement to Time Magazine about that whole graffiti removal ordeal

“I was offended when Westminster said my painting was an advertisement. Advertising makes people feel inadequate and worthless. Graffiti doesn’t do that. Graffiti doesn’t emotionally blackmail you, graffiti doesn’t make you feel fat and graffiti doesn’t make you rush out and buy things, except maybe high strength cleaning products.”

A couple suggestions…

Add channels for 120 minutes and Yo! MTV Raps.

Add a feature which lets you create playlists so that you can continuously watch videos without effort.

Let me create a Reminisce Over This channel.

Now, the Grateful Dead.

people not politics

Instead of buying that shirt from Urban, or threadless, check out People not Politics. They have created a line of t-shirts called Iraqi Hope. The shirts tell the real life stories of Iraqi children who have been orphaned by the war. The art featured on the shirts were created based on email conversations between the artists here and the children in Iraq. 20 percent of the shirt proceeds are donated to Generation Iraq, a charity that provides for Iraqi orphans. They have two shirts available right now(one picture above). Its a good cause, I did not know they had email in Iraq?…..kidding
