Pete Rock will also be spinning after the show doing a special 1 hour DJ set. If you are a true Pete Rock fan, then you can't miss this.
Recently one of my favorite writers collaborated with Mango. They will have six printed t-shirts with words ( see example above). There is only one t-shirt shown on the website. I will stop by Mango soon to see the rest of the t-shirts.
This is the first major museum exhibition to focus exclusively on “The Pictures Generation,” a tightly knit group of New York artists who created some of the most important and influential works of the late-twentieth-century. Born into the media culture of postwar America, their overarching subject was how pictures of all kinds not only depict but also shape reality. Highly seductive photographs by Richard Prince and Cindy Sherman reveal the ways in which images from B movies and magazine advertisements determine much of our sense of who we are. Louise Lawler and Sherrie Levine examine how the myths and legends of modern art are inextricably tied to the institutions of the museum and art history. Also included are photographs by Laurie Simmons, James Casebere, James Welling, and Allan McCollum, as well as works in other media by Robert Longo, Troy Brauntuch, David Salle, among others.

The exhibit starts on April 21 to August 2, 2009. It will be at Photography and Tisch Galleries, 2nd floor 1000 Fifth Avenue at 82nd Street New York, New York 10028-0198

After being inspired by last night's 1992 party at Lupanar, I'm suddenly obsessed with wearing the brightest thing I can find...I felt like I was on the set of Cameo's "Candy" video.........if only I had the $$$ to snap these hotties up.....
It was madness at the Topshop. We took some pictures but haven't had time yet to upload them. Here is one picture of Kate Moss www.gossipgirls.com. She had loads of makeup on. The line was out the door. It went around the whole block. I hope this weekend to go shopping and check out the store.
