SPOTTED: Damien Hirst and other Delectable Dots

Edited by

Artist Damien Hirst is getting much media attention in recent days for his new exhibition spread across the corners of the globe. Damien Hirst the Complete Spot Paintings 1986-2011 is the current main attraction in all 11 Gagosian galleries (arguably the most powerful gallery empire in the world) from New York to Hong Kong. The show has garnered much controversy, praise, and vehement debate from critics, notable artists, and the public. Love it, or hate it, Hirst and Gagosian are spot on in terms of creating buzz. To celebrate this accomplishment in media-whore savvy, we’d like to honor some other “spots” that have achieved marketing greatness. Click through for our top choices.

The Everyman’s Guide to Collecting Art

Edited by

Art Basel has come and gone and so have my dreams of Hirst and Murakami inspired bacchanal revelry. I was motivated enough to start my art collection, but then I checked my bank balance and realized Cafe Americanos and taxis really do add up after a while. The plus side? A segment of the art industry is paying attention to tomorrow’s buyers, and it’s getting easier to become a collector at a lower price point. Here’s how.

Pick It Or Skip It: De Kooning Retrospective at MoMA

Edited by

Art world brats wet themselves advising other people on shows they should and shouldn’t be seeing (and how they should feel about them).

Luckily you have us at FashionIndie to give you advice on what to pick spending your time/money on, and what to skip. This week we tackle the juggernaut that is the Willem De Kooning Retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

STREET-ART FAVES: Photos to Entice the Urban Explorer

Edited by

Culture-bots all over NY have an opinion about their favorite spots to oggle street-art and this zeitgeist reporter is no different. This year has been an especially exciting time for the country’s most controversial canvasses. Between the Banksy documentary, news that graffiti mecca 5 Pointz will be closing, and the “Art in the Streets” exhibition at LA’s Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), the walls and buildings in the five boroughs have been getting just as much attention as any runway during fashion week. We’re here to help you feel included in the conversation – to make sure that you can throw down with an avenue (or two) that boasts tags, colors, and something truly special or unique. In the spirit of the museum round-up we presented a few weeks ago, here are some noteworthy spots to view urban Picasso’s throughout New York.

MUSEUM KNOW-HOW: When You Have To Make Small-Talk About Art

Edited by

Living in New York City, we’ve all had to perfect our small-talk auto-pilot. After the initial five minutes discussing careers, playing the name game only goes so far. Chats often morph into a competition of recommending favorite museums and exhibitions (this throw-down is also applicable to train routes, East 7th Street restaurants, and Tupac v. Biggie). It’s good to have a few go-to’s in your pocket when your art cred is being challenged, and dropping some colorful vocabulary just adds to the charm. Since it’s my job to share my knowledge, here is a slice of artistic Big Apple real-estate that you can claim to know next time you find yourself at a loss for words or opinion.
