Selectism - trook-01

We were tempted to leave this off the site purely because of it’s awful name. We know shortening words is all the rage these days but trook? really? Name aside, this is one for the rustic among you. They’ll be masculine enough for all you rugged gents and also have the added bonus of looking nice as well. (Mar Mar)

Fashion and Objects by Walter Van Beirendonck, Louise Bourgeois, Hussein Chalayan, Christophe Coppens, Comme des Garçons, Salvador Dali, Naomi Filmer, Robert Gober, Martin Margiela, Francesco Vezzoli, Viktor and Rolf, Anna-Nicole Ziesche and many others.

The exhibition explores the relationship between art and fashion. Since the sixties art and fashion have shared the same avant-garde feeling. Fashion no longer expresses power, money and social class; instead, it starts to express art and culture. Fashion and popular visual cultures—like pop art—became the new visual aesthetics of society. Fashion and Art are conceptual in the same way . During the eighties Japanese designers as Yohji Yamamoto and Comme des Garçons started to explore the boundaries of clothing and the meaning of fashion. Viktor & Rolf and Hussein Chalayan too started to present fashion shows in the new millenium that looked like art-installations.

The exhibition, which first has been shown at the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam, curated by José Teunissen and Han Nefkens, will be reshaped for Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg by José Teunissen and Annelie Lütgens, curator of Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg.

Prolixus Luminis; “wide-eyed”

by Accidental Bear

Aspiring photographer Andrew Oldershaw takes a break from his day job to have some fun with the camera and share his favorite photo of the week with Advocate.com.

ANDREW OLDERSHAW PROLIXUS LUMINIS FLOWER MAIN 2 X430

By Andrew Oldershaw

I love portrait work. I love the idea of capturing something in the blink of an eye that might only exist for that one suspended moment in time. A look. A gesture. In this case, my very brave friend allowed me to splatter him in paint for a little series I did with him. The rest of the series is a little more serious than this one. The little purple flower was a random last-minute addition that somehow switched the tone of the image entirely, to something rather comedic and cartoonish. His expressive eyes certainly helped here. This was shot in natural light, which really helped enhance the colors of the paint.

– Advocate.com will be featuring a new photo from Andrew Oldershaw every Friday. Check back next week.

It takes a Real Bully to Vandalized a FagBug

by Accidental Bear

I say pick on someone your own size and that’s not rainbow colored. How tough can you be for spray painting a rainbow colored bug? This act only drives home the point that Erin Davies is making and puts ignorance on a pedestal. FYI you forgot to spell check ” fagget” moron.

FagBug Vandalized Again

ByAdvocate.com Editors

FAGBUG X390

In 2007, Erin Davies’s VW Beetle was vandalized when someone spray paintedFag” and “U R Gay” on her car. She decked her Bug out in rainbow colors and started driving around to college campuses, educating students on tolerance and antigay discrimination.

Now, 47 months later, someone has defaced her car again.

While she was preparing for an appearance at SUNY Plattsburgh Tuesday, someone wrote “Faggets + Dikes Need to Die” on the driver’s-side window.

“I wished I saw it happen so I could’ve had a chance to interview the person who did it,” Davies told Vanity Fair Stick Shift blogger Brett Berk. “My project is all about documenting this type of thing and discussing people’s opinions from various viewpoints.”

Davies said the latest incident won’t set her back — she plans to incorporate it into her next presentation.
