Best Album List of 2009

Posted in music by tipo on December 15, 2009

The award goes to NPR. The list itself could be a beautiful playlist. “Songs of Shame” by Woods, “Davy” by Coconut Records, “Shelter” by Xx, “Hospice” by The Antlers, “First Day of Spring” by Noah and the Whale, and so much more.

Art Basel 2009 Recap

Posted in art, events, travel by tipo on December 9, 2009

1. Art Basel as a single fair was disappointing. Galleries whipped out their recession-safe Picasso, Lichtenstein, Dan Flavin, John Chamberlain, Cindy Sherman, and Jeff Koons works. The most noteworthy artist was Evan Penny, please check him out!

2. Pulse Art Fair had a hot set up. It was held in the Design District of Miami, which is equivalent to NYC’s Bushwick. An art troupe from Austin, TX created a fantasy quickie mart that could have been strait out of Jay And Silent Bob.

3. The Rubell Family Collection was impressive. Major downtown artists – Nate Lowman, Barbara Kruger, Andy Warhol, Haruki Murakami – reappropriated popular works.

4. The parties. Easy door. Free booze. Free music. If only the cabs weren’t so damn expensive.
