Starting today I’ll be posting interviews I’ve conducted with artists participating in the live video/performance art show I am curating, presenting itself in it’s entirety and in REAL LIFE 3D SPACE this weekend. Not only are the videos colliding, so are the performers- meeting minds from Berlin, Canada, Colorado, the 310, 818, and 323, holler! This will also give me a great opportunity to showcase (you should really you know… come to the event) everyone’s work because it’s an awesome roster of young artists crazy enough to come and do this. I also want to thank Megan, my partner in this comedy duo, and all the artists as well.
Graphic designer and art director Albert Exergian’s humorous take on popular TV series “minimizes” the concept of each show into 2-3 colors and shapes. Remember old Penguin Classics book covers? This is the revamped modern sitcom version!

Illustrator Jason Polan is on a mission. A mission to draw every person in New York. Jason is spending 2 minutes a piece drawing people he sees in the streets of New York City and blogging the results daily. The result is fun doodles of interesting characters and even some famous names. If you’d like to be a subject, check out the blog and email Jason, and he may inconspicuously sketch you at your decided location. More NY portraits after the jump.
Very cool show from artist Louis Cameron at I-20 in New York. In my humble opinion, there are few subjects that have as much cultural significance as the American Flag, so it doesn’t surprise me that artists continue to try their hand at reinterpreting the ‘Stars and Stripes’. The paintings in this show depict flags that were created in the 1960’s as a response to the Pan-African Flag (designed by Marcus Garvey), and were meant to symbolically represent the African-American experience. So there, you get some art and a little history lesson on a wonderful sunday afternoon!
Bigert & Bergström are Swedish artists who have been collaborating on installation and video work since 1990. They twist photographs into spheres lit from the inside, creating galaxies of glowing globe worlds. Their work is on display in the coming months in Sweden and Germany.
