Quirk and Creative work well together…

Denise Kupferschmidt and Joshua Smith founded ‘Apartment Show’ - a roving gallery of sorts that takes place in donated apartments (i.e. other people’s homes). Where labels are taped to the walls and the owners own possesions are often mistaken for ART.

White by Winnie Lui
“Jewelry Designer Winnie Lui created this unique chandelier of tiny treasures for Innermost. We think the solid white color gives it a surprising depth and class.”

James Franco Interviews Artist Marina Abramovic

Seriously…I’m just as shocked as you to see that he even knows who Marina Abramovic is. But Franco is a former Cal Arts student with a serious penchant for Performance Art.

Roger Hiorns - Turner Prize 2009 Exhibit at TATE

"Hiorns creates arresting sculpture and installation combining unusual materials. His exploration of chemical processes took spectacular effect in Seizure, in which a derelict flat in South London was filled with liquid copper sulphate, which after a period of time encrusted every surface of the space with blue crystals."

Yeah HAHA MAG is Real.

We got a few emails mostly asking if we were just a blog.

Nope. We're a online magazine with a real launch date. And I'm always twittering away about the craziness that's going on here in Philly as we hustle to meet our launch date.

I'm the Editor and the poster for our blog.

Here's a sneak pic at my creative board - if you look closely you can speculate over our 1st campaign offerings.

Robert Bradford - Recycled Toy Sculptures

“Robert Bradford creates his life-size and larger-than-life sculptures of humans and animals from discarded plastic items, mainly toys but also other colorful plastic bits and pieces, such as combs and buttons, brushes and parts of clothes pegs.
In 2002, he started to consider the possibilities that his children’s forgotten toys could have as part of something bigger. Bradford says he likes the idea that the plastic pieces have a history, some unknown past, and that they also pass on a “cultural” history as each of the pieces represents a point in time. Recycling is not his primary concern, but each sculpture certainly keeps quite a few pieces from becoming landfill. Some of the sculptures contain pieces from up to 3,000 toys and sell for £12,000 (US$19,000). - Tuija Seipell”

Pompidou Center's Roving Art Circus

The avant-garde Paris Pompidou is planning on sending out a mobile version of itself into France’s culturally deprived rural regions and rough suburbs.
“Visiting the roving Pompidou will be free, and the project’s priorities are rural regions and the poor, crime-ridden suburbs that ring France’s cities but are often largely cut off from the cultural offerings there.
“It’s about bringing art to the people to awaken their desire to go toward the art,” the Pompidou’s president, Alain Seban, said in a statement. “It’s a sign of our openness.”
Sounds interesting…read more about it here.

Gelitin creates a Different Sort Of Garden

“Klunk Garden”

photos by Kei Okano

Gelitin is comprised of four artists that met when they attended summercamp together in 1978 and started exhibiting internationally as a group in 1993. Their installations deal with such topics such as childhood, the functionality of objects. The scale of which and over the top themeing blend well with the installation titles “Klunk Garden” & “The Dig Cunt”.
