The Secret Life of Bloodboy

On the eve of her ascension, L.A.’s rising pop provocateur exposes herself.

If you were in a philosophizing mood, you could easily argue that music is like a poorly kept secret. Both things originate from an unseeable event or process in someone’s life. Both mutate, expand, evolve and gain meaning as time goes on. And, like a secret, music is something you catch wind of secondhand — it’s spread by hurried word […]

Michael Rakowitz is not a political artist

Exploring the connections between different […]

Todd Solondz on filmmaking, aging, and Weiner Dog

"Life definitely got better as I got older. You have less time so you have to use it more wisely."

“I’ve got a blow up doll, and she looks like you, little girl…” sings ultra-cool high schooler Steve Rodgers in a garage while 12-year-old Dawn Wiener watches from the hood of a car, dancing in Todd Solondz’s 1995 cult film Welcome to the Dollhouse.

Joey King never takes vacation

But she does enjoy a good trip to Disneyland

You are on your first set. There are little tables, with little chairs arranged around them, and other kids who are playing with glue and glitter—although they’re not really playing; they are doing what the director told them to do.

The curators should firstly be commended for creating a truly diverse experience in terms of media, gender, and nationality—this is not your average white-males- only summer group show (trust […]

Hannah Bays on influences and techniques

Desire Peaks, the debut solo exhibition of Royal Academy graduate Hannah Bays at Cob Gallery, was received with rave reviews. The show definitely stirred the senses with its bold thick strokes and vibrant color scheme, flowing cohesively to create a distinct body of work. Aesthetically Bays’ work has been “conflating and distorting everyday graphic signs and symbols in a way that playfully elucidates.” This […]
