The most wearable colour of the season
Art girls rejoice! Who What Wear have announced the most wearable colour of the season… Going against the grain on all the pastels that came down the S/S 23 runways were over 4000 black looks—proving that this year is all about making bold statements through the art girls’ favourite hue.

The internet is torn on Artist Hank Willis Thomas’s long-awaited Boston monument to the married civil rights leaders Martin Luther King, Jr. and Coretta Scott King. Memes have been made from what some may view as lewd connotations, however, the 20-foot-tall, 40-foot-wide sculpture is intended to depict the hug shared by the assassinated civil rights leader and his wife in 1964. What are your thoughts?
Katherine Bernhardt has a new muse
In vibrant, expressive paintings of pop culture characters, Katherine Bernhardt explores the mundane iconography of contemporary society. Crocs, Pikachu, mushrooms, ET and Nike are just some examples of icons that can be seen within her art. For her latest body of work, the instantly recognizable Bart Simpson appears prominently – humorously with his pants down. I’m Bart Simpson, who the hell are you? is on view at Canada gallery in New York until February 25.
