  • NEWS: DOCUMENTARY OF BANKSY

    By Steve Delahoyde – Unbeige

    Heading out to Utah this weekend for the start of the Sundance Film Festival? If so, one of the hardest screenings to sneak into is sure to be the just-announced addition Exit Through the Gift Shop a documentary by none other than everyone’s favorite anonymous celebrity street artist, Banksy. The film is described as a behind-the-scenes peek at Banksy’s work, or as Sundance promotes it, “a remarkable documentary that is part personal journey and part an expose of the art world with its mind-altering mix of hot air and hype.” Rumors are that this will be when the secretive artist finally reveals his true identity. But even if he did, would you really believe it? The guy is tricky. Here’s the trailer: [Read More]

  • NEWS: OBEY AS LAST DEITCH EXHIBIT

    By Steve Delahoyde – Unbeige

    Now that Jeffrey Deitch has been named the new director at Los Angeles’ Museum of Contemporary Art, he has just a few months left before he’s likely to close up shop on his famed New York gallery, Deitch Projects, to absolve himself of any conflicts of interest. And he’s decided to let the space go out in a blaze of high-profile glory with the announcement that Shepard Faireywill be the last artist to exhibit there (at least under his command — he may still hand off the gallery to someone else). Art Info reports that Fairey’s show will go up on May 1st, just a month before Deitch’s takeover in L.A. Here’s a bit about the planned exhibit: [Read More]

  • NEWS: CHANGE OF CHINATOWN

    By Matt Harvey – NewYork Press

    The city wants to put a stop to the fakes for sale in Chinatown. But at the same time, it’s putting the squeeze on legit longtime merchants. MATT HARVEY investigates as the ‘Counterfeit Triangle’ slowly disappears.

    What’s left of Canal Street’s hawkers and small merchants—Hispanic stereo salesmen, Chinese dry-goods merchants, Lebanese gold sellers and Jewish landlords—all agree on one thing: “The fix is in.” Everyone knows the clock is ticking.  

    Two new hotels, including a 361-room Sheraton, are due to open on Canal in the next six months. Very soon, locals say, Canal Street will join Times Square, Astor Place, the Lower East Side, the Garment District and all the other former centers of down-and-dirty capitalist grit that have been safely gentrified. As Greg “Heavy” Duval, an African-American watch-peddler explains before the Christmas holiday, “Canal is on its last legs. They want to make this a franchise block.”  [Read More]

  • NEWS: TODD JAMES EXHIBITION

    By Freshness Magazine

    Along with artist Todd “REAS” James‘ immediate family, hundreds of well-wishers, included fellow artistsSteve “ESPO” PowersKAWSTomokazu “Matsu” MatsuyamaJose ParlaEric ElmsSuckadelic, and more packed Gering & Lopez Gallery last evening congratulate Jame’s debut solo exhibition in the U.S. Self-taught, Todd James’ extensive art works crossed across genres and mediums. Best known by his graffiti tag REAS, the New York City-base artist was instrumental at the height of the graffiti culture during the 1980s, which gave raise to other artists like FUTURA, Keith Haring, Kenny Scharf, and more… Later, James’ cartoonish design was translated onto other genres, from The Source magazine’s original logo, cover art for the Beastie Boys, to more recently, a collaboration collection with Stussy. In this, his solo exhibition, titled Make My Burden Lighter, James explored further the fallacy of the so-called “American Life”.  [Read More]

  • NEWS: CONTINENTAL GET LOUD AGAIN

    By Adam Rath – NY Press

    Before it doled out a fiveshots-for-$10 special designed to lure in passing college kids, Continental hosted some of New York’s most infamous punk shows. From 1991 when the club opened until 2006 when the plug was pulled on live music,The Ramones, Agnostic Front and The Cro- Mags were just some of the seminal local bands to take the dive bar’s stage. Fifteen years after opening the club, though, owner Trigger stopped hosting live shows in favor of pulling in a crowd that would pay for its drinks and enable him to keep the doors open. After more than three years of silence—save the sound that one too many Jaeger shots brings out of a New School freshman—Trigger is bringing music back to Continental for a onenight-only show featuring some of the club’s best-loved alumnus.

  • NEWS: R.I.P. TEDDY PENDERGRASS

    By Jon Pareles – NY Times
