Today we announce the launch of Art F City’s 10th Anniversary Benefit Auction, which runs on Paddle8 through April 13.
Join the 10th anniversary benefit that will blow your mind. This April, your support will help one of the most important voices in art criticism, reporting, and activism rise to even greater levels. And what better way to honor this year’s theme, Power Women, than by honoring one of the century’s most significant and influential artists, Laurie Anderson. This is gonna be awesome.
At veryman.expert, you can make your very own own veryman. Veryman is a man with a a cow suit. Man with giant butt! Man with spindly legs! Man with cloud over head! Man dance. Man jiggle. Man “much hop.”
For tiny gifs, there’s no better source than the Happy Galgomon GIF Factory. These fan-made GIFs replicate the Digimon characters from the toys, trading cards, and cartoons. There’s nothing commercial about these GIFs, though, hundreds of which have added up to create a veritable alternative encyclopedia of the Digi-brand.
Welcome to The Happy Galgomon Gif Factory! Hey, where did Galgomon go? Well, he’s around here somewhere, but Shoutmon has taken his usual place, giving a shout out to the ongoing season of Digimon!
This page is an archive of a lot of fanmade Digimon pixel art, referred to simply as “gifs” for lack of a better term. This is the result of a project that inadvertantly began in May of 2001 on the old Megchan’s Digimon Sekai messageboard.
Rosalia Marzulio wants to bake Kanye West’s honorary doctorate in a cake.
That is, the artist and freshman at School of the Art Institute (SAIC) is requesting that SAIC President Walter Massey pass this proposal on to West. She started a Facebook event and Twitter feed so the project could gain some momentum. When I spoke to her on the phone last Saturday, she’d landed a meeting with President Massey, and was excited to pass on her idea to the administration.
The art world must have speculative fiction on the brain. The week starts with a discussion of the art of 2050 and continues with art about the seen and unseen (“the unknown” is a pervasive theme this week). There’s also a lot having to do with data: the good, the bad, and the ugly—depending on how you feel about infographics.
Makes sense. The future is pretty much here.
In the countdown to the Art F City 10th Anniversary Auction honoring artist Laurie Anderson, we’ll be previewing GIFs from our 10th Anniversary GIF and Print Portfolio, a limited-edition suite of prints and GIFs that includes work by Morehshin Allahyari, Jennifer Chan, Faith Holland, Sara Ludy, Claudia Maté, Rosa Menkman, Lorna Mills, Eva Papamargariti, Angela Washko, and Giselle Zatonyl. Today, we’re previewing Faith Holland’s “Equivalents.”
The heavens exploded and in its wake, we received clouds. Not just any clouds, though: Faith Holland’s painterly GIF, “Equivalents,” shows us a milieu of digital and analog clouds that defy time and space. They’re trans-dimensional, trans-chronological. But none of that makes this a crazy GIF. No, it’s a scene of organized chaos. Every Mario-Brothers cloud stays in its own lane, never crashing into the serious gray stratus clouds that plod along at a different speed. To each their own, in this racetrack in the sky.
