"I’m fascinated by, love, loss and the immortalization of celebrities, those that burn bright and die young, whilst their lives are cut short, they never grow old, never loose relevance and retain the spirit of youth forever, it is perfect for our consumer led culture, we get to put them on a pedestal, manipulate their ethos to fit with ours, over and over again, without them even being a part of this reconstruction/deconstruction’—D*Face (DeanStockton)
Starting September 26, 2014 PMM Art Projects will present a pop-up exhibition of new work by artist D*Face (‘Scars and Stripes’) in West Hollywood, California. Click here to learn more.
Foundland (established 2009) is a collective whose work draws on graphic design, art, writing and research. Comprised of the artists Ghalia Elsrakbi and Lauren Alexander, Foundland focuses on a critical analysis of topics related to political and locational branding through visual and written forms. Since 2011 it has centered more on the Middle East, with special interest in Elsrakbi’s homeland, Syria. Foundland has developed an expanding database of visuals and information, gathered from observations of media, activist groups and trends of political expression across social media. Drawing unexpected relations and connections, they create alternative narratives to media reporting through innovative image making and personal interpretation.

Maya Lin: New York | Art21 | Episode #178 | 2013
Maya Lin’s massive geographical installation, now on view at the Parrish Art Museum, depicts the boundaries of Hurricane Sandy’s flood plain. The artist examines New York’s ecological past and invites viewers to rethink their immediate surroundings.
The exhibition highlights the arch of Bartlett’s career with 22 prime examples of work from each of her creative periods and series, ranging from her signature plate pieces, to complex architectural combinations of paintings and sculpture, to expansive diptychs and triptychs.
Q. & A. | Maya Lin on Saving the Planet Through Art
Q. Water is a recurring theme in your new show at the Parrish.
A. I’ve been really interested in getting people to be aware of what might be in their own backyard. So when the Parrish approached me, I started looking around at the local environs. I wanted to play with waterways and water systems, so I focused on Mecox Bay, Georgica Pond and Accabonac Harbor. The three-part sculpture “Around the World” is about what we think we know because we see it. We understand what we can see, and I love revealing what’s invisible to us—as in what’s underneath the surface of the ocean.
