The LC hopes to score an interview with Judson in the near future, and we're seriously considering a "Judson for Mayor" campaign. Sure, the idea of an 11 year old hedgehog fan leading the city might seem silly at first, but is it really any sillier than Boog Highberger and his "Dada Day?"
At the LC, we strive to keep you informed of the hipster art scene at Wonder Fair and the Percolator, but we rarely turn our attention to the art world at large. But occasionally we wonder, What's cool in New York right now? What kind of art are the urban hipsters digging? Let's find out.
The D C Moore gallery has an exhibition of Alexi Worth's work, such as this piece called "Half in Hand":
The NYTimes says: "...the fingertips read as phallic, and a seed-shaped, dark red hole in the center of the apple as vaginal."
Chip: "I didn't get the vagina thing at first, but now that it's been pointed out to me, yeah, I totally have a boner for that apple."
Artnet.com says that Worth's paintings "teasingly imply the presence of an offstage character: the viewer. In a painting of a hand holding a split apple, for instance, the shadow eclipsing the foreground is the beholders--yours."
Richard: "I'm totally freaked out right now!"
Lonely hipster boys across the land received some sad news recently: hipster "It" girl Zooey Deschanel is now engaged to Death Cab for Cutie's Ben Gibbard.
Richard: "I'm starting to think I may never even get to kiss her."
Chip: "She's all right, but I'm into Leslie Feist."
