Contributions from Chuck D, Henry Rollins & Shepard Fairey

Glien Friedman, accomplished, respected and otherwise bomb-ass photographer of all things skate, hip-hop, punk and otherwise cool as hell, has found a hardcover casing to commemorate his work by way of Rizzoli publishing. That is, of course, in addition to the countless periodicals, magazines, fanzines and museum walls which have displayed his work. Being the […]

Street art kings to hide 10 cereal boxes across greater LA stores

We’re cleary big fans of TrustoCorp, following their antics from their Sarah Palin Sex Tape Nightmare! fake magazines to their Zombie Kim Kardashian Eats Herself! tabloids to their best known work making fake street signs. Now the subversive collective has teamed up with fellow rabblerouser and social critic Shepard Fairey for another collection of pseudo consumer products […]

Best Made has created a rigging knife fit for all the dangers aboard the next Sea Shepard Ship in the height of another Whale Wars Campaign. The heavy-duty knife is designed to cut through rope as clean and quick as possible — much like their Axe & Axe Sling chops through zombies. It features a […]

New Art Correspondent Freddi C hits up MOCA for opening night

MOCA's controversial exhibit gets its own documentary

Madman Mundt The documentary, OUTSIDE IN is a sort of behind-the-scenes peek into the oh-so controversial Museum of Contemporary Arts (MOCA) exhibit Art In the Streets. We actually covered Art In the Streets fairly in depth when it opened, nevermind dealing with all the Blu controversy leading up to it [if you need a quick […]

MOCA director Jeffrey Deitch attempts to redeem himself

Art In the Streets is kind of a funny name for an exhibit that all happens inside the pricey, heavily guarded, air-conditioned walls of a museum. Obviously this art isn’t in the streets at all. Doesn’t take a genius to figure that out. It’s in the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, in downtown Los Angeles, with […]

Up now at San Francisco's 941 Geary Gallery

Among the punk, skateboarding and hip hop scenes of the 80s and 90s, there are few photographers that can stand alongside Glen E. Friedman. Many of the most famous images from these seminal scenes were captured by Friedman’s lens — from Fugazi and Beastie Boys to Public Enemy and Black Flag. Now an international traveling […]
