What won’t they construe this as?

Featuring Gypsy Sport Spring/Summer 2016

“Ooh these shades make me look like an I’m-about-to-fuck-you-‘90s-bitch,” proclaims slick—a model who was discovered via Instagram—as she tries on a pair of large brown sunglasses that overwhelm her slim face. I am sitting on a couch at the Hell’s Kitchen-based studio of gypsy sport—the four-year- old high-fashion streetwear brand run by Rio Uribe, the label’s 30-year-old designer and founder—on […]

The Bones of J.R. Jones “Bless Your Soul” Video Premiere

Linaberry’s soulful vocals set over the backdrop of a tense quarrel on a serene winter day makes ‘Bless Your Soul’ a must watch.

In an era where spectacle often seems to trump substance in entertainment (and politics), people like Jonathon Linaberry are a refreshing throwback to a time when music was music and artists were storytellers. A time chock-full of American folky-blues goodness. Linaberry, a New York-based musician, credits legends such as Blind Lemon Jefferson and Lightnin’ Hopkins for the inspiration behind the […]

"I’m drawn to primitive “pagan” forms because of their minimalism and their suggestive power. They have the force of natural forms."

“I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men’s minds without their being aware of the fact.” — Claude Lévi-Strauss, Mythologiques, Volume 1 (1921) Anthropology—the study of humankind—is one of the primary and earliest influences of Canadian-born, Paris-based ceramicist Kristin McKirdy. Beginning her academic career studying art history and cultural anthropology at […]

Wednesdays at the Drive-In: Qualia (Film Premiere)

Performed and created by Katrina Amato. Directed, shot and edited by Spencer Byam-Taylor

As we premier the conceptual short film “Qualia,” we asked filmmaker Spencer Byam-Taylor (director) and dance director Katrina Amato (creator and performer) a few questions about the film, their creative process, and the arts of performance and filmmaking. What’s the concept behind “Qualia”? Spencer: Katrina came to me and said she wanted to make a film about the idea of perfection […]

Ellie Bamber

Bamber hasn’t skipped out on the good times along the way.

Tell that one again about the time you tried sneaking a selfie inside the Sistine Chapel and ended up with a cracked screen and an angry Swiss Guard after you. Or how about when you managed to smuggle an entire gallon of vodka into Coachella with nothing but sunscreen bottles? How about last summer when you and your bestie hiked […]

Avant Gardener: Shooshie Sulaiman

We talked to the artist about her new work, her artistic philosophy, and the many meanings the “Garden” carries for her.

Malaysian artist, performer, and cosmic gardener Shooshie Sulaiman says, “Art is the fragment of the artist’s internal and external identity.” Indeed, the oscillations and synergies between seemingly antithetical dualities are at the root of Sulaiman’s work. Her paintings, installations, and community projects bridge boundaries between personal and collective, traditional and contemporary, nostalgic and visionary. The artist herself is not foreign […]

What’s In Yr Fridge, Simonne Jones?

Gravity is Simonne Jones’ first formal release a combination of her beginnings in classical music, her fascination with science and the unknown, and the influences of her mentor Peaches

Not many musical artists can say they have explored the jungles of Africa and Brazil, conducted HIV research and awareness programs, performed classical compositions in China, and been taken under the wings of Peaches. Forget the title of a “triple threat”—Simonne Jones can boast all these achievements and more before even releasing her first EP, Gravity. Gravity, out on May 27th via Vertigo Berlin, is Jones’ […]

Tye Sheridan

I guess I’m a southern boy at my roots.

If you haven’t heard of Tye Sheridan, it’s somehow both reasonable and ridiculous. His filmography is full of obscure thrillers on the one hand—images of rural, apocalyptic bardos that unnervingly resemble our everyday world—and on the other hand his first film, Tree of Life (2011), was helmed by Terrence Malick. His new clout is old school—he didn’t get famous online, […]
