IG Digest: Our Arty Christmas Wishlist
Santa, if you’re listening, you know what to do
Insta-Gorgeous 22 Dec 2018

Whichever winter holiday you celebrate, hopefully there are tons and tons of presents involved. With Christmas coming in hot, we decided to round up some of the artwork that we loved this year… Santa, if you’re listening, you know what to do 😉

47096484_454148655410899_1047577915995109433_n
Although it wasn’t published this year, this book is a certified stunner. A must-read for fans of Nan Goldin and Larry Clark.

2) Anything by Tschabalala Self.

40001107_2089232594495635_8890824848482772673_n
Sunday (2016).
I mean anything.

3) Judy Chicago, Immolation (1972)

42949607_288021658720791_5200625770988244483_n
Since ICA Miami recent survey of Judy Chicago’s crazy diverse body of work, everyone seems to have finally discovered that this seminal feminist artist made more than The Dinner Party (about time). We’re tryna snap this one up before anyone else does.

4) Tyree Guyton, Spirit Man (1996)

10914702_789687304433615_1042234803_n
Blame it on Basel, but we can’t get enough of Tyree Guyton’s radiant portraits.

5) Linnea Kniaz, Orange, Staying Down (2018)

45597880_431010910766925_3049994069424668016_n
Mark my words—she’s one to watch in 2019.

6) Any print by Anne Barlinckhoff.

39582194_2279181852112004_4815070415158247424_n
Combining crisp color, precise geometrical compositions and a strong message about race that could not better embody the spirit of 2018, Barlinckoff’s photography tops our wish list.

7) Hardeep Pandhal, Parent Culture (2018)

44824098_1192393787577969_8454379629229188935_n
One of the only situations imaginable when giving a sweater for Christmas wouldn’t be horribly unoriginal (other exceptions include cashmere thrift store finds or anything by Gucci). Imagine tucking this thought-provoking sculpture into a closet in a guest room and wait to see if anyone comments. Surely, it would at least make for some interesting breakfast conversations.

8) A Kimbra Audrey print.

37574218_493952657714810_2244904978130927616_n
A Millennial (and far less tragic) Francesca Woodman, Kimbra Audrey makes timeless film photographs that nail the delicate balance between sexy and haunting. Basically, you definitely need one for your living room.

9) An iconic Christopher Wool piece.

46665364_595460017578196_1006518337867955760_n
Apocalypse Now (1988).
Make it extra provocative and hang it in the foyer. Anyone have an extra $2omill in their Christmas budget this year?

10) A Bruce Nauman neon (for the bedroom, of course).

47586417_1161242620700847_7016417223582123184_n
The true artist helps the world by revealing mystic truths (1967).
I’ve long been searching for a killer neon to spice up my interior décor, and since Tracey Emin is a bit too obvious, I finally settled on Bruce Nauman. If someone could nip into the MoMA retrospective and steal this piece for me, that would be great. If the Mona Lisa could be stolen so many times… why not?
