Massive Links! Midweek Edition
- “Better than any net art I’ve ever seen”, reads the email title I received yesterday with the url for yvettesbridalformal.com. I don’t know if I’d go that far, but certainly, this site is worth a perusal. I particularly enjoy the embedded mp3s in the red hat section, and the pageant/prom dress page. Originally via metafilter.
- This coming Monday Art Fag City friend Dan Callahan (of the L Magazine, and The House Next Door), will sing Cole Porter songs roughly in the order they were written at the Don’t Tell Mama theatre. To be honest, I don’t have too much connection to Cole Porter, but since Callahan is a man of great talent, I’m sure he’ll inspire my interest.
- Brian Stelter at The New York Times takes a look at the work of Chris Hughes on Barack Obama’s campaign. Hughes, one of the four founding members of facebook currently works full time on the campaign’s new-media strategy, including My.BarackObama.com
- The New York Times covers photographer Rachel Barrett series documenting Manhattan's newsstands. Squarely fitting into the cataloging-everything-within-one-category genre of art making, the photographs also coincidently capture a particular kind of newstand about to be eradicated, as the city recently decided to replace the old structures with new ones. The photographs are okay, but I am growing tired of collection art that seems to have no purpose past the act itself.
- Gawker covers artist Filip Noterdaeme’s latest project, whereby the artist hands out discount fliers for the Murakami/Louis Vuitton Store currently inside the Brooklyn Museum. I can’t say this is my favorite project the artist has ever done (see the awesome HOMU). Despite the ridiculous amount of debate that store seems to have inspired, I don’t have any problem with its location inside the museum, and asking for a discount on retail items when there is none seems like something like people would do on their own. The prank inspires a shoulder shrug from us.
- This is sort of amusing: Someone got a hold of a Chucky Cheese animatronic band and programmed it to play Usher. The video has 400,000 views, so I guess it’s making the rounds in the blogosphere.
