Massive Links: The Most Important School Ever

by Will Brand on June 18, 2012 · 2 comments Massive Links

  • We love Julia Halperin’s piece on Avenues, a new K-12 private school opening in Chelsea this fall, even though the content scares us slightly. The school will have a focus on contemporary art; among the amenities are a private, growing art collection, visits from working artists, printmaking facilities at Pace Prints and, most importantly, iPads for all. In the words of its founder, “This is going to be the most important new school ever opened, anywhere in the world.” [BLOUIN BLOUIN, OH NO, ME GOTTA GO, AYE-YI-YI-YI]
  • Netartnet.net is artnet for net art, and that’s a fantastic thing to have. We liked it so much we bookmarked it twice. [Netartnet.net]
  • Sam Taylor-Wood and Yoko Ono met thanks to a film Taylor-Wood directed about the adolescent John Lennon, and found they had a lot in common. Taylor-Wood tells a story of an American gallerist who questioned the merit of her work based on the fact that she has four children. Everyone is rightly aghast. [The Guardian]
  • We just came across this recording of LBJ requesting more room in his pants “down where the nuts hang”. It’s in excruciating detail. [Wonkette]
  • Hat-tip to Patrick Gantert for directing us to this Flash explosion of Christianity. Best worst website ever. [Evangel Cathedral]

    Horray for netartnet.net! Now I don’t have to ask Anthony directly about what’s going on.
