When Cindy Sherman collaborated with MAC last year, we weren’t sure the new make up line would sell. Blue-eyeshadowed clowns weren’t trending. We assume somebody must have bought the stuff though because now there's a line of Andy Warhol-inspired cosmetics.

  • Tyler Green writes about de Kooning’s figuration in depth on the occasion of the MoMA show. The best revelation: Matisse was constantly painting people in yellow chairs. [MAN]
  • In the dumbest story ever, Bob Dylan’s shitty paintings might all be based on other people’s photographs. What will we do? [NY Times]
  • In the second dumbest story ever, the Vatican’s gonna very charitably give a do-over to the artist they hired to sculpt Pope John Paul II. The official Vatican art critic (are they hiring?) said the work they got looked too much like a “sentry box” and/or Benito Mussolini, and didn’t match the papal couch besides. I suggest they look into copying this statue of JP², in Wadowice, which really draws out that one time in his life when he was a wizard in a hurry.
  • Everybody in the universe (ourselves included) is rushing out “wtf was postmodernism” pieces to coincide with the Victoria and Albert Museum’s “Postmodernism-Style and Subversion 1970-1990″. Edward Docx’s PoMo for Dummies-style essay in Prospect Magazine is one of the better ones. [Prospect]
  • The Guardian has some nonsense about an artist who tried to make a movie for chimps, which is notable for two reasons: firstly the incredible feats of reasoning used to justify the present as a “Chimp Moment”, and secondly the utter ignorance of the Meow Mix project MeowTV, which released a pilot episode of a TV program designed for cats (along with a cat restaurant where this was shown) way back in 2003. AFC actually holds one of the very few copies of the DVD to be sold, but until we put that up you’ll have to do with this song about getting neutered. [Guardian]
  • Finally, some kid feels both “mad and frustrated” that his phone still doesn’t work in the subway. We feel you. [L Mag]
