When EXPO Chicago started in 2012, the popular opinion was that President and Director Tony Karman had five years to make this fair great. If he couldn’t, it was likely dead in the water. This weekend marked year three of the midwest fair, and exhibitors and attendees remarked on the palpable momentum. 19 Chicago galleries participated, the highest number yet, and EXPO continued to draw galleries from around the world, including repeat exhibitors like New York’s CRG Gallery who has been on board all three years, and Diana Lowenstein Gallery of Miami, who has been exhibiting at Chicago fairs every year since the 90s.

David Bowie Collaborates with Tony Oursler on New Single

Tony Oursler’s still making his creepy video-face heads, and they’ve escaped their art fair home. Now he’s worked to made the music video for David Bowie’s new single “Where Are We Now?” , in which Bowie’s already perfectly satisfying head is put on one of Oursler’s dolls.

The news here isn’t Bowie’s questionable taste in collaborators, though; it’s that David Bowie has returned from a ten year absence and will release a new studio album on March 12th. To make the news extra press friendly, he’s released this news on his 66th birthday. This single isn’t making us overly excited about the news, but thanks to his previous body of work—30 albums in total, including, hello, Ziggy Stardust—I think we’ll let this one go. Happy birthday!
