The Red Drum Getaway, an Eerie Film Collage

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 27, 2015
The Red Drum Getaway is a compelling film collage directed by Adrien Dezalay, Emmanuel Delabaere and Simon Philippe. The piece brings excontemporaneous film characters like the Shining’s Jack Torrance and children and Droog Alex DeLarge from A Clockwork Orange into a cobbled-together background of 1940s Jimmy Stewart Films. 

Paulin, Paulin, Paulin: a Retrospective of Pierre Paulin's Furniture Designs

Design // Tuesday, October 27, 2015
On his work, Pierre Paulin says, “I was aiming to show just how far we could make modernity go,” and his furniture reflects this aim. Well, at least, it reflected this aim in the 1950s and 60s. In 2008, Paulin’s family created the firm called Paulin, Paulin, Paulin, which creates limited editions of the designer’s work that never passed beyond the prototype stage.

The Stones and Storms of Ashley Eliza Williams' Paintings

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 27, 2015
In some of her paintings, it’s hard to tell whether Ashley Eliza Williams has painted an obscure geological formation or weather pattern of our world, or has given us a glimpse of her detailed imagination, filled with nature-based metaphor. She has a self-declared passion and curiosity for natural patterns and systems and an often-muted but never boring color pallet to match.

Music Video: Grimes "Flesh without Blood/Life in the Vivid Dream"

Music // Monday, October 26, 2015
We are excited about the new Grimes album. Not only did she create the artwork for her new LP, Art Angels, but the video for "Flesh Without Blood" was written, directed, edited, colored, and art-directed by her. Her brother, Mac Boucher, was the cinematographer and creative consultant. Keep it in the family. There are a ton of costume changes, different looks, a basketball court, a tennis court, angel wings, and a slow breakdown that is "Life in the Vivid Dream."

Photography // Monday, October 26, 2015
Silverstein/20 is pleased to present, Portraits by Marie Cosindas as a second part to the gallery’s 2014 exhibition, Arrangements by Marie Cosindas. Her best known and frequently reproduced image from 1966 of two sailors in Key West is an early example of Cosindas’s classically posed and carefully styled portraits of celebrities, cultural icons and the demimonde. In the 1960s-80s, Consindas created her series The Grande Dames of Couture, and The Dandies, as well as photographed a cast of artists, writers, actors and musicians in a manner that is often compared to the painter John Singer Sargent.
