WEEKLY WRAP UP | JULY 21- 25, 2014


Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains

This week, I watched the Swedish film We Are The Best! and I remembered one of my favorite films from when I was a kid, Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains. The film is full of awesome teenage punk fashion straight out of the 1980s. I had to post more pictures.

We attended the opening of The White Album at Richard Telles Fine Arts in L.A., and in Paris, we watched Pierre Henry in concert, and announced the Paris book launch of Schizo-Culture.

These intricately beaded works span centuries and miles, from the Pacific Northwest to the Mississippi. The tradition of beading is both spiritual, and artistic and decorative. The exhibition included mostly worn objects such as shoes, vests, necklaces, belt buckles, and purses, along with baskets and small vessels.
