David Shrigley, September 2012

Vault // Thursday, April 25, 2013
Great news for one of our favorite artists. David Shrigley, who we were super lucky to interview for our September 2012 issue this year while he was in San Francisco for his exhibition at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, was nominated for Britain's top art award for an artist under 50, the Turner Prize. The artist was nominated for his standout (we saw it, we agree) exhibition at Hayward Gallery in London. That show traveled to us in SF. Take some time to read our piece with Mr Shrigley from Sept 2012.

Ragnar Kjartansson x The National "A Lot of Sorrow" @ MoMA PS1, Long Island City

Music // Thursday, April 25, 2013
Phish probably pulled off the six-hour show, and perhaps for some, it all sounded like the same song. Well, Brooklyn's The National is going to take this concept up a notch. In collaboration with Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson, the band will play their track "Sorrow" from the 2010 LP High Violet, for six straight, continuous hours. That's right, 360 minutes, and because the song is around 3:25, that is just a lot of "Sorrow" in a row. The artist's idea? "By stretching a single pop song into a day-long tour de force the artist continues his explorations into the potential of repetitive performance to produce sculptural presence within sound."
