Lou Fratino & Angela Dufresne’s Glazed

Two artists, at different junctures of their careers, explore themes of intimacy within the context of a queer dialogue in Glazed, the duo painting show currently up at Monya Rowe Gallery in New York.

Heather Benjamin’s Maiden Form

Don’t be fooled by the pink hues in Heather Benjamin’s curatorial debut “Maiden Form,” currently on view at Andrew Eldin Gallery. The last decade’s trend of all-girl group shows arguably only perpetuated the myth of the eternal feminine, seemingly fixated on the cis woman’s experience of erotica and menstruation. What makes Benjamin’s exhibition stand out is her selection of artists, who responded to her call for “meditations on femininity” with subversive and poignant work centred on their individual experiences.

Clarissa by Annabell P. Lee

Los Angeles artist Annabell P. Lee is making an indelible impression with her signature hand-painted checkered designs. We’re excited to show her latest collection of hyper-saturated corsets and denim in this shoot styled and photographed by Lee herself, featuring Clarissa as model.

George Rouy’s Leaking Visions of Red

Have you ever really seen a face in a dream? We supposedly remember our stronger dreams, ones wrought with sexual tension, sexual release. But at most, we can only place a person’s presence – shadowy, and blurred. Leaking Visions of Red, George Rouy’s current show at Anna Zorina Gallery, feels like a sexual dream, seedy, misty and strange

Khotin’s Beautiful You

Khotin told me that the phrase ‘beautiful you, thanks for the smile,’ was scribbled on a note left anonymously on his windshield years ago, while he was parked outside of a bottle depot. His new tape, Beautiful You plays the same way, a tender and mysterious narrative. In his new release, the Vancouver house & ambient…

Sylvie Fleury’s LA Bougainvillea

Gran Turismo at Selena Gallery

Revisiting PlayStation’s 1997 car racing game Gran Turismo is both thrilling and nauseating, the only way I could describe it is as “accelerated nostalgia.” Is this what happens when you die? Gran Turismo is a fitting name for Cristina Tufiño and Jonny Negron’s duo show at Selena Gallery, a collection of multi-media works chock full of cultural references, from…

TEXT BY ARIELLA STARKMAN   I am running to catch up with my heartbeat, as if I need to be close to death for the speed of its rhythm to make sense. Some days I stop and look around at the stillness—what I see are books lying awry, bottles that have been forgotten, notebooks that…

Ren G ~ Editorial Mix

My friendship with Ren goes beyond the stars and what our compatible zodiac signs have to say for it. I will never forget meeting them at Kellogg’s Diner for waffles at 8am while I cried about whatever life crisis I was going through at the moment.
