As we ran off the bus to 86th Street Beach at Far Rockaway, we made it just in time: The judging of the Creative Time’s second annual Artist Sandcastle Competition had began. Last year’s winners, artists Jen Catron and Paul Outlaw were surveying the largely conceptual sculptures. “We’ve been practicing judging for months,” they told us. “We […]

“I wanted to fuck with them,” Cody Critcheloe of SSION said at the MTV Studios press screening of ArtBreaks with Creative Time. He was talking specifically about the 20-somethings who watch Jersey Shore, who would stumble on his 30 second art vid on TV and go, THE FUCK?

I’ve learned something today. From the outside world, there’s nothing interesting going on at sandcastle competitions until after they’re finished. That was a piece at 5:15, 45 minutes before time was up for the 3 p.m. – 6 p.m. competition.

Here’s another “Shit _ Say” video, sorry, but it’s art-relevant, so, here goes… Creative Time interns made a cute little viddy of self-love-hate entitled “Shit Art World People Say,” which apparently involves orgasming over post-post-modernism, burning Shepard Fairey and snickering about who “doesn’t have an MFA.” […]

Copenhagen art crew Superflex has created a “life-sized, detailed, and functional replica” of the executive restroom of the New York JPMorgan Chase headquarters inside Olympic Restaurant on Delancey, so any purveyors of the LES Greek joint can experience being in the seat of authority whilst shitting like kings and “contemplating the structures of power that become imbued in even […]
