And Stay in New York, Art F City’s affordable workspace conference at the Queens Museum!
Last night’s hotly anticipated debut of True Detective’s second season on HBO was really confusing. Of course, fans of the show expect to have no idea what is going on with the series’ convoluted plots, but one scene in particular caught us off guard. Colin Farrell and company paid a visit to a supposed kidnapping victim’s house and found his collection of misogynistic contemporary art pretty disturbing. Ick. We did a little detective work of our own to find out more about the shudder-inducing curatorial preferences of (potential?) murder suspects.
Submit a subway-inspired GIF to “Animating Transit,” an exhibition inspired by the trains New Yorkers love (and love to hate). You have until Sunday, June 21 at midnight to see your GIF in the online and offline exhibition, so hurry! Here’s all the deets.
But what if I don’t have any ideas for GIFs about the subway?
Of course you do! New York City’s subways are incredible. They’re the best option we have for getting around the city. And they’re full of history. Sure, there’s delays, overcrowding, and the occasional signal problem. But you never know what’s going to happen!
Will the 7 train be delayed—again? Maybe you’ll sit next to someone eating sticky, gooey BBQ wings without abandon. And what about the rats! So exciting.
For those of you who like GIFs, but don’t make them can come out to celebrate for the one-night PLATFORM event held the night of June 24 at the Transit Museum (a museum that’s located underground inside an abandoned subway). It’ll feature several screenings, exhibitions, and performances, with clowns, prayer beads, and dancing. See the full schedule here. Get $5 off when you enter the AFCREATE discount code at checkout.
Here at the blog we’ve been talking about the trend of making stage sets for digital-looking art that is actually made out of simple materials. Voila, a cardboard-made set for “Gumshoe Follies,” a play of sorts which, by looking at Xenoself’s Tumblr, seems to involve human-headed gonads. Ummmmm…
Carmen Tiffany‘s GIFs confuse me. The GIF above is part of her Hanging Around Town series, which are inspired by hanging around Miami. Is this what happens to women’s heads when they move to Miami?
Do women really roll chicken through their fingers the same way they would roll a coin over their knuckles?
I guess I don’t know enough about Miami culture to know these things. Am I being educated?
