    Frieze 2009: Small Paintings and Smaller Egos

    What I loved this year about Frieze was the hordes of youngsters, toting cameras and notebooks, looking intently and arguing about the works at the fair. Had the collectors all come and conquered already?

    Animation Short, Grand Theft Google

    Animation Short, Grand Theft Google
    Honest Directors animated this short called "Satellite Car Chase," a mash-up of Google Maps's aerial street views and a Grand Theft Auto style car chase. It was originally made for the collaborative film series Psst! Pass It On 3, and it does a fine job of taking the fantasy chaos of the game into a less sensational (more real?) setting. View ...

    Chaises Longues Conquered, Ron Arad Designs a Museum

    Chaises Longues Conquered, Ron Arad Designs a Museum
    Holon, Israel— The world of Ron Arad is defined by the whimsical names of his iconoclastic designs: the Bookworm Shelves, the Misfits Seating, the Reinventing The Wheel storage system, the Not Made By Hand/Not Made In China lights. But Arad’s latest brainchild goes by the more straightforward moniker Design Museum Holon, and it both marks his first architectural project — his ...

    Artists and Dealers Prospect in the New Frontier

    Artists and Dealers Prospect in the New Frontier
    New York, NY — This hasn't, by a long stretch, been the recession the art world thought it would be. Back in fall 2008, after Lehman Brothers collapsed and the auction market corrected with a vengeance, all the talk was of galleries closing. In a rousing performance at that year's Art Basel Miami Beach that was part consolation, part pep talk, ...

    Chinese Artist Locks Himself in a Box in Venice
    VENICE—In a performance that falls somewhere between Chris Burden's locker stunt during his heady student days, David Blaine's magic acts as extreme forms of self-denial, and a good old-fasioned sit-in, Chinese artist Xing Xin locked himself in small iron box on Venice's Murano Island on Monday night, there to remain for 49 days during the Venice Biennale.

    Fashion Victim! Laga Gaga Takes a Bad Fall for Fashion
    These boots weren't made for walking. Lady Gaga fell flat on her face yesterday when she tried to sashay through London's Heathrow airport in a pair of thigh-high, black-leather boots with massive platform heels. Instead of making a statement, the boundry-pushing performer became a fashion victim as she tumbled to the floor. Gaga, who was also wearing a black mesh top ...
