KEITH HARING AT THE DE YOUNG

A quick look at the de Young’s massive new Keith Haring retrospective, The Political Line. Focusing on Haring’s more deliberately political works, the pieces take on consumer culture, technology, sexuality, and racism head on, and span the length of Keith’s short but prolific career.

I gather Bangkok is a pretty strange place. Like any massive urban center, it seems like it’s got a little bit of everything. Beautiful things, ugly things, and plenty of things that are so ugly they’re beautiful. For Boogie, it’s exactly the kind of hectic environment his art thrives in. With a resume that includes […]

In talking about a figure like Owsley ‘Bear’ Stanley, it’s hard to separate the man from the myth. For one, he’s credited with producing and distributing literally millions of acid tabs, the quality of which was pretty much unquestioned. Add to that the fact that he was one of the primary sound engineers of the […]

If there’s a photographer out there who’s better than Aaron Huey at giving a snapshot of different cultural experiences, I haven’t heard of them. Freelancing for publications like National Geographic, Harper’s and The New Yorker, to name a few, Huey’s portfolio sheds light on a wide range of global issues, and serves as a window […]

The fact that things like this exist in the world is a little mindblowing. I guess my first reaction was just a handful of questions. Who set this up? Who has the balls to try this kind of shit, and aside from that, how would you start to practice? Over the past few years, Valparaiso, […]

PROSTITUTES OF GOD

Trying to put things like this all the way into context is difficult to do, so I’ll try to let this one do the talking, for the most part. Suffice to say, life isn’t the same for everybody, and if you like where you’re at, there’s plenty of reason to be thankful. Aside from that, […]

FAKE TALES OF AMERICA

This project is pretty clever. Shot and compiled by photographer Mathieu Lambert, Fake Tales of America documents a fictional trip across America, picture by picture. Each of the pictures, however, was shot somewhere in France. In reality, Lambert explains, he’s never been out of the country, so instead he tried to capture “scenes within France […]

Don’t you wonder what it’s like in other places? America’s so calm and tranquil compared to so many other places in the world. I came across this video the other day of a train station in Yangon, Myanmar. Just a reminder of how different things can be. Dude looks like he’s juiced to be running […]

A SATURDAY AT THE GETTY

Perhaps it’s the tranquility that hits you first. I suppose that’s the vibe of most museums, although I’ve never been to a museum quite like The Getty Center. Built in the memory of oil tycoon Jean Paul Getty, the 24 acre cultural center has welcomed over a million visitors a year since its opening in […]
