    Patrick Martinez True 2014 

The fabulous guys at Smogtown 13 (who also do all of Hyde or Die favorite RETNA) is putting out a limited edition run of 20 of other perennial favorite Patrick Martinez starting Friday.
Why does this have to be available so close to when rent is due though?

    » Rocker Nick Cave Wants Your Best Tchotchkes for His Museum

    While artist Nick Cave spent the past few years collecting antique store memorabilia for his found object sculptures at Jack Shainman Gallery, musician Nick Cave has been busy collecting, well, important shit. At least that’s what he terms it in his new project “The Museum of Important Shit,” an online photo exhibition to whichanyone can submittheir most prized trinkets and keepsakes, created in collaboration with filmmakers Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard.

    The idea for the project was reportedly sparked while Cave, Forsyth, and Pollard were working on Cave’s upcoming semi-autobiographical documentary “20,000 Days on Earth,” when the singer told a story about watching Nina Simone take out her gum and place it on the piano before a concert. As it turned out, Cave’s former Bad Seeds bandmate Warren Ellis, who later visited the set, had actually kept the gum, as well as the towel Simone used that night to wipe her face. He sent Forsyth photographic proof the next day.

    “It’s a pathetic looking dirty piece of gum, wrapped in a white towel,” Forsyth recounted to Wired UK. “It’s shit, but it’s important shit. And that’s what this project is all about.”

    The last thing I worked with Deborah Sussman on was this reissue of a bag design for LACMA she did in 1966.  When we were going through her archive, we found these, showed them to LACMA and understandably, everyone went nuts. 
When she was commissioned to do these, she had just gotten back from India to work on the Nehru exhibit with the Eames office, and while she was always a collage enthusiast, she incorporated the shapes and colors she had seen in her travels to the bags. I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out. Go to the museum store and pick up something and get a bag! Can’t lie, I’m a bit tempted to frame one.
LACMA and Los Angeles are going to be a little more colorful because of Deborah this fall. Just how she would have wanted.

    Devil’s Advocate for Miley Cyrus’ art:

    It’s a mirror for our heavily saturated and instant gratification oriented consumption culture. She’s a product of it and therefore her products are the what she knows. Assault your visual cortex with information and color and whether or not you enjoy it, it made an impact. The need to infantilize her with her Disney past combined with her sexual awareness as a developing woman. It’s an attempt to show a unique point of view with regurgitated totems of our collective childhood. It’s a statement in a puffy wrapped and sterile package, the layers to break through to get to any sort of center are years of harmless, yet effective, defenses. It’s a self portrait a la Tracy Emin’s bed.

    Give me 5 minutes and I’ll play devil’s advocate with absolutely any piece of art.
