Available online for free

Advanced Minority presents a solo show of the co-founder of Graffiti Research Lab Evan Roth. The title chosen by Roth for his show alludes to the sometimes absurd relation between the distribution of contents through the web and a never ceasing desire for the unique and the exclusive. As a consequence, his artworks are exhibited in the "physical" art space of Advanced Minority and the online gallery at the same time.

Hats Off!
Image 24|02 - 31|05|2009

Who else than Stephen Jones can there be to curate an anthology of the works of outstanding milliners over the past few decades? That's what people thought at the Victoria & Albert Museum, giving the fabulous Brit carte blanche. The result is a spectacular retrospective (including some loans from Vienna according to the press text - we are curious...). Go and chapeau!

Institution gewidmet der Gegenwartskunst im allgemeinen, oder doch ihren Auftrag speziell im Bereich der angewandten Kunst wahrnehmend? Nicht unspannend.
