I’ve been out of the loop and stuck in libraries lately (and then in Miami for the weekend), and that’s led to me miss posting about a lot of things. I’ve got some catching up to do, so here’s the start of that:
- EPOS 257 built a fence in a public square in Prague. A. It reminds me of Richard Sera’s amazing Tilted Arc and B. Seems like a great way to screw with the local bureaucratic government. I guess there’s the important question left though of if the public actually thought about anything when looking at the work. I’m hoping that some did, but perhaps it was too nondescript to provoke much thought.
- Cost’s newspaper box (mentioned recently) was stolen from the street and ended up on eBay. The winning bidder paid over $4,000!
- The first show from YellowPants Gallery will open in Lisbon this week with a great lineup including Maya Hayuk and Remed. More info here.
- If you’re feeling the recession, you’ve got to check out this artwork by Patrick Martinez.
- Evan Roth gets clever with the TSA full-body scanners.
- SF’s Ratio 3 Gallery will be holding a solo show of Margaret Kilgallen’s work in March.
- Ending on a very sad note, Brooklyn Street Art has received word from Faust that his friend and fellow graffiti writer Sure has died while serving the USA in Afghanistan.
