Nature's Revenge: A Fishing Village in China Reclaimed

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 16, 2015
This isn't so much an art update as it is just a cool sight. Near the Yangtze River off the eastern coast of China, a small fishing village has been reclaimed by nature, sort of a Josh Keyes-ian but in real-life scenario happening as we speak. From MyModernMet, "Once a thriving settlement merely half a century ago, Houtou Wan Village was gradually deserted when the small bay could no longer meet the needs of the increasing number of fishing boats."

Opening: The Fake History of the World

Pop Life // Monday, June 15, 2015
Part art opening, part performance art: receptions at Daniel Rolnik Gallery stands above the rest in sheer goofiness. Friday's show had paper towel rolls dispensing penis drawings, bags of fake cocaine, and a zine of nude selfies. There was also traditional media -paintings and drawings- but all still tongue in cheek. Stop by and see a light-hearted gallery like none other.
