Boston, Mass.—This spring, the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston opens The Record: Contemporary Art and Vinyl, the first museum exhibition to explore the culture of vinyl records within the history of contemporary art. Bringing together artists from around the world who have worked with records as their subject or medium, this groundbreaking exhibition examines the record’s transformative power from the 1960s to the present. Through sculpture, installation, drawing, painting, photography, sound work, video and performance, The Record combines contemporary art with outsider art, audio with visual, and fine art with popular culture. On view at the ICA from April 15 through Sept. 5, the exhibition features 99 works by 33 artists, including Jasper Johns, Ed Ruscha, Laurie Anderson, Christian Marclay and Carrie Mae Weems. The Record was organized by the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University and is accompanied by a 240-page color catalogue.

shape deuce

i'm a little late with the shape endorsement...and in a way i'm glad. it gave me time to soak it in. (i drunkenly talked donfros' ear off during the 2nd premiere. haha) now, in our own small way we can keep the hype goin. wall to wall friends and talent from start to finish. shape deuce is a beer soaked glimpse into one of the many core east coast skate factions. and fuckin' a! we love it. a worthy sequel to the first shape vid (which also ruled.) it retails for $15 bucks, so go to your local shop and support the homies. if your local shop doesn't have it, ask them why fucking not....then buy it direct by clicking the link above. cold beer!

A collection of melodic rhythms and pulses gesturing toward the phantasmagorical. These recordings were made over a period of time at our former studio in New Hope, PA. Culled from hours of improvisations, these 19 tracks have participation by some or all members of Sunlore: Bill Errig, Ron Lent, David Marino, and Ahmed Salvador (with Andrew Benkert playing keyboards on the first track sampled, 'Electromagnetic on yellow'). Each front album cover is hand made in an edition of approximately 200 by Ahmed Salvador, with a technique involving fire and spray paint.

nolan cormier

so we were trespassing at el scarehouse and saw nolan needed a little support....he now has fresh blud on his whip. we're stoked.

Bronwynne Brent

bronwynne is an old, very dear, friend of ours. it's hard for me to find the right words to say about this girl, because she's haunted my thoughts for almost two decades...(in a good way). she is an incredible singer/songwriter, and her record, "deep black water" comes out today. it was recorded in austin tx and produced by mike mcarthy (who also produced spoon!). do yourself a favor and check her music out....and if its not your cup of tea, share it with someone you know that might like it....they'll love it. in my mind she's been famous for years.

blud gives.

the grand dragon donated some trannies/materials to a certain d.i.y spot/crew in the name of bloodmobile....very honorable indeed. (and yeah he'll be over there w/trowle in hand seeing it thru...) which in turn, will get certain cult figures a guilt free green light to shed. respect is due.
