Flaunt Exclusive Track Premiere: Gavin Turek’s “The Distance”

From her upcoming EP 'Good Look For You', out February 17 on Madame Gold Records

Soul never goes out of style, though sometimes it might go a bit dormant, waiting for someone like Gavin Turek to channel it for a new generation with all the funk and groove and sultry swagger required to match the masters. Turek is a classic triple-threat, with singing, acting, and dancing all on stock in her formidable repertoire, but what […]

Getty Foundation announces “Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA”

A major collaboration with the region's art institutions to present an ambitious exploration of Latin American art in dialogue with Los Angeles.

The shining constellation of art institutions big and small in the city of Los Angeles is one of the things we at Flaunt most treasure about our hometown. It’s especially lovely when they work together in concert to assemble something larger than the sum of its parts. Hence our excitement to hear the announcement of  ”Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA”, a […]

The Elements Issue: Obscene City

Oh the parties we had!

As Gandhi probably said, “In times of great difficulty, when the world looks bleak and the challenges ahead seem insurmountable, the only response is unabashed, unmitigated hedonism, and lots of champagne.” And so we have bravely soldiered through a trying year, refusing to let 2016 get the best of us. It’s just who we are. As the year rolled towards […]

The first animals to evolve the capacity to fly (at least on this planet) appear to have been dragonfly-looking beasts that swarmed over the swamps and forests during the Carboniferous period 350 million years ago. Wings have had a troubled but productive time since, going from pterodactyls to seagulls to vampire bats to Paul McCartney. Wings offer elevation, escape, and […]

Composer Hanan Townshend on becoming Terence Malick’s go-to

When Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups came out last spring—the third film in a spate of unusual productivity for the enigmatic auteur—it prompted what is now the patented Terrence Malick response: a lot of people talked about seeing the film; some went; many hated it and said so; and a few loved it, but didn’t want to talk about it. […]

A Primer on the Above Water Board and a Sinking Art World

Sometimes we all need saving. There’s no shame in it—a frantic shared glance at a cocktail party when the company turns sub-par, an emergency loan after an investment property turns sub-prime, a knee-bound plea to a higher power (like Bernie Sanders) when your vote gets sub-Primaried. Dick Van Dyke was saved at sea by a school of porpoises. Cities are […]

Meet Luka Sabbat, the 18-year-old style icon about to take the world by storm

Kids these days, amirite? What’s with these genderfluid smartphone-toting agents of change, walking around with blue hair and bones in their noses, brandishing names like “influencer” before they’re legally capable of being under the influence and cultivating their own personal brand across an ever-expanding network of platforms? Is that insecurity I detect in your professed quizzicality? Jealousy? Are you as […]
