Book Launch at Fulton Street

Salad for President: A Cookbook Inspired by ArtistsBook Launch at Fulton Street Key Foods, Brooklyn 
A Brooklyn supermarket set the unlikely stage on April 27 for the release of Julia Sherman’s Salad for President cookbook (out May 16), in which she asks artists to share their favorite salad recipes. The author’s local grocery store, Key Foods, played a key role in the book’s creation. Guests included artists Tauba Auerbach (who has a recipe in the book) and Lorna Simpson, as well as Bon Appetit editor-in-chief Christina Muhlke.

The photo booth was stocked with giant papier-mâché lettuce masks, and guests were encouraged to shop and donate the groceries to charity. There was also a dance floor and music from DJ Chances With Wolves and cocktails by Arley Marks Drinks.

Kind Regards.

Online Art Market?

How Big Is the Online Art Market? Depends Who You Ask The latest report from Hiscox estimates that the online art market hit $3.75 billion in 2016. Eileen Kinsella, April 26, 2017

Is the change-averse art market finally beginning to embrace the internet? The ArtTactic/Hiscox Online Art Trade Report 2017, released this week, describes the online sphere as “a market yet to awaken”. For the fifth year, the analytics company ArtTactic teamed up with the insurance company Hiscox to survey the field. The report is based on responses from 758 art buyers, 132 galleries, and staff from various online art platforms. Despite a relative slowdown in the global art market, the online art market grew by 15 percent, to $3.75 billion, last year, according to Robert Read, head of art and private clients for Hiscox. The online art market’s share of the total art market also grew last year, from 7.4 percent in 2015 to 8.4 percent. While that may seem small, it is roughly equivalent to e-commerce sales’ sh…

Bob Dylan Shows Off

A 20-Year-Old Bob Dylan Shows Off His Effortless Cool in Revealing Photography Show Ted Russell shot the images beginning in 1961.
Today he may be a Nobel Prize Laureate, but back in 1961, Bob Dylan was just 20 years old, a kid from Duluth, Minnesota, who had arrived in New York City with a guitar and a dream. Freelance photographer Ted Russell got a call from Columbia Records, who had just signed the young folk singer, and then spent two days shooting the musician, not knowing that Dylan was on the brink of global fame.

Those images, along with photographs taken during interviews with LIFE in 1963 and ’64, are now on view at New York’s Steven Kasher Gallery in Ted Russell: Bob Dylan NYC 1961–1964.”

Despite a lack of knowledge about or interest in folk music, Russell went to an early Dylan gig, snapping photographs of his performance at Gerde’s Folk City in Greenwich Village. Two days later, he took more photographs at the West Fourth Street apartment Dylan shared with his then-girlfr…


This Newly Discovered 23,000-Year-Old Statue Has a Kim Kardashian-Worthy Booty

Archaeologists believe that a 23,000-year-old statue discovered in the Bryansk region of Russia was meant to depict Venus, but the artwork’s prominent rear end is prompting comparisons to what some might consider a modern-day goddess—reality star Kim Kardashian. The Paleolithic statue, which is just two inches tall, was carved from a woolly mammoth tusk, and depicts a prehistoric women, possibly pregnant, of impressive proportions. The artwork’s shapely buttocks recalls Kardashian’s best-known feature, which she infamously flaunted for a 2014 cover of Paper Magazine that bore the headline “Break the Internet Kim Kardashian.”

“This statuette pictures a rather portly woman, but it looks fantastically delicate, probably due to the long and thin legs,” Konstantin Gavrilov, deputy head of Stone Age archeology department at the Archeology Institute, Moscow, and leader of the exhibition, told the Siberian Times. …

Animals Have Died

How Many Animals Have Died for Damien Hirst’s Art to Live? We Counted. Nearly one million, by our conservative estimate.

Damien Hirst is back. More than a decade after he last made headlines, the artist has a new exhibition at François Pinault’s Palazzo Grassi and Punta Della Dogana in Venice with a new body of work that delves into the imagined story of an ancient collector and the shipwreck that consigned his treasures to the bottom of the sea. One of the many noteworthy elements of the show? It doesn’t contain the unusual art material that has powered Hirst’s most famous work: the dead bodies of animals. Ever since his explosive entry to the British art scene with his 1990 masterpiece One Thousand Years—a vitrine featuring a rotting cow skull that breeds maggots that become flies that meet their end from a buzzing bug zapper above—Hirst has made mortality the great theme of his oeuvre. He deploys real cadavers in gallery settings to confront viewers with the implacable fact of death…
