It’s safe to say NYC invented the Hip Hop thing. Great map, totally fascinating to see all the close ties. Via Very Small Array.
The show will shine a spotlight on a number of threatened animal species and consist of an array of oil paintings, limited edition prints and works on paper.
Additionally, in celebration of the upcoming exhibition, White and Talenthouse are extending an opportunity to animators, inviting submissions of showreels and short films inspired by the Amazonian Parrot, with the winning animator set to collaborate with White on a brand new piece to be featured in the London show. Those interested can find further info and enter here. “Natural Selection” is set to open on June 22 and run through July 7.

Fear.Less is a collaborative project between Daniel Ting Chong & Jordan Metcalf. The objects are all representative of weapons/items used in acts of crime in South Africa, both by criminal and the law. More pictures here (and a few of my favorites below).
The objects seek to playfully examine the place of fear and crime in South Africa context, framing our obsession with violence and the casual paranoia we all seem to suffer from. By scaling the objects and turning them into artworks, the artists aim to re-contextualise the place these items hold in our everyday lives.
We all saw the Jay-Z and Kanye West video for Otis. We all thought to our ourselves, oh no, seriously? The Maybach? Don’t do it!!!
Thankfully rap isn’t all just bling bling– they’re auctioning off The Otis Maybach for charity, this Thursday, March 8th in New York City. The lot is being sold partly to benefit Save the Children by Phillips Depury.
Estimates are $100,000-$150,000 and I imagine it will do just fine. Who wouldn’t want a ’04 Maybach destroyed by Jigga himself? I’m going to go ahead and put this into the Art category.

Pictures from 82-year-old Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama new exhibit at the Queensland Art Gallery in Brisbane, Australia called ‘Obliteration Room.’
Start with a stark-white room then let kids armed with thousands of colored stickers go crazy on it. The result is a rainbow of insanity.
More pictures over at The Denver Egotist, thanks Keleigh!
