Undercover 03816 T-Shirt

01

Image

01. 100% cotton.

Words

Undercover’s Television pieces for Spring-Summer '15 created quite a stir when the collection was first shown last year, causing plenty of people to raise all kinds of grievances. Most seemed to call-out the large graphic treatments and liberal use of photos from their two album covers. I myself am a huge fan of Tom Verlaine and his fellow band members and feel they are far and away the strongest group associated with the late '70s NYC punk venue CBGB. For me, this T-shirt, while very pricey, uses all the right Marquee Moon references, making it just about the best one you can find for a band with an absolutely sterling output.

Words

"Over the past forty-years, Wallace has made paintings and photographs, imbued with narrative tension, which are in dialogue with cinema, performance art and feminism. This exhibition, Wallace’s first in California, presents work from several series that explore gender conflict and the metaphysical clash between figurative photography and abstract painting."

Sasquatchfabrix. Rawlife Sunglasses

Image

01. Acrylic frame.

Words

The Japanese brand Sasquatchfabrix. does a remarkable job of taking classic references and warping them to fit their avant-garde aesthetic. Their products add a dash of individualism to any outfit, and these chunky acrylic sunglasses certainly stand out from the numerous, more diminutive versions available from nearly every eyewear company.

H.Usui – Sings The Blues

01

Image

01. LP and CD.

Words

If Hiroyuki Usui’s latest record, Sings The Blues, shares any similarities with Holy Letters, his previous album of spare, haunting blues experimentalism released under the moniker L, it is destined to be one of my new favourites. It was put out by the genre-defining label VHF early last year, and it is recommended to fans of Loren Connors, Jandek and Six Organs of Admittance. What I have heard in my minimal sampling so far is very promising, but ultimately I am saving myself for one revelatory, all-encompassing first listen.

Michael Heizer – Altars

Info

Gagosian Gallery
555 West 24th Street
New York, NY 10011
May 9 – July 2, 2015

Words

The legendary and incomparable sculptor Michael Heizer has recently opened his first exhibition at the Gagosian Gallery in NYC. The show, running until the beginning of July, features a series of rarely or never-before-seen early paintings, new monumental steel sculptures, and negative wall sculptures that make use of metamorphic and igneous rocks. Heizer is perhaps most famous for creating works of tremendous size that displace tons of earth and have redefined sculpture due to their mass and the process involved in their construction. This approach has been his hallmark since the late '60s and is present in such famous works as Double Negative and Levitated Mass. While these works are site specific, this exhibition is especially notable since it brings his art, normally residing outside of gallery walls, indoors.
