Oh my gosh, this is everything.
This outtake from Amy Poehler’s new Old Navy commercial is nothing if not a true work of art.
“[It’s] aggressive, it’s dangerous, it’s stupid, and that’s why I like it,” she quips, mocking the lingo of many a pretentious art dealer. The short clip is full of those kinds of gold nuggets, and is a hilarious commentary on the vague, highfalutin language of the art ... Read More

Even from my childhood bedroom, I could just taste the pork and ... Read More

Not sure whether I’d be disgruntled or delighted to reach for my favorite candy bar at a deli, only to realize that it wasn’t a candy bar at all, but a plush replica. On second thought, I’d be pretty delighted, especially if everything in the whole store had been replaced by adorable, hand-stitched felt duplicates. British artist Lucy Sparrow devoted seven months to making that happen, and her completed project, The Corner Shop, is on ... Read More

While I was beginning to believe only Millennials were obsessed with computers, Mickey Mouse and selfies, artist Ultra Violet (Isabelle Collin Dufresne) took these obsessions to the next level. She passed away on June 14th at 78 years old, but we can can remember her for the beautiful art instillations she created that prompted the viewer to interpret iconic symbols in our society in a completely different way.
In her day, Ultra Violet was a purple-haired ... Read More

Megumi Igarashi, a Japanese artist who works under the pseudonym Rokudenashiko, meaning “good-for-nothing-girl”, has built an artistic career using models of her vagina. Igarashi began using the theme of her vagina in order to challenge the social taboo against even using the word “vagina”. “They never show the vagina in the media, so I didn’t know what a normal vagina looked like. I was wondering if mine was ... Read More
