Video Interview: Accidental Bear Gets Intimate with Inbred Hybrid Collective

by Accidental Bear

photo credit: Ves Pitts

If I were to start giving out prizes for artists with the most amazing names, Inbred Hybrid Collective would be wearing the red ribbon. It reels me in like a floundering fish at sea and I want a taste. Art as a concept and a social experiment, I like. Art should be stuffed with emotion which reflects the world around us as long as it doesn’t end up being just a series of doughnut still lives (unless well done). Inbred Hybrid Collective ” is not committed to any one medium in the exploration of a concept.”

Accidental Bear’s Mike Enders asks about New York art rivalries, current art project, The Bernstein Bears, whether or not depression or mania enhances an artists art work and many more intrusive questions. Inbred Hybrid Collective has undeniable authentic artist sensibility and is a damn hunk to boot. Gallery walls are flooded with “art” but a small percentage gets me up out of my plush lazy boy to see in person. All my senses are tickled while investigating Inbred Hybrid Collective. I would take planes, trains and a crazy crack head taxi rides to get glance at I.H.C’s work and marinate in the soothing energy that surrounds this artist.

 Inbred Hybrid Collective was established in 2005. Our mandate is to stimulate a consciousness of the external factors affecting our human existence. The type of interventions associated with Inbred Hybrid Collective, achieved as artistic concept, constitute a provocation for the public to reflect upon the influence that this immersion has had upon them. Our work has appeared in venues as diverse as the Liverpool Independents Biennial (visual installation),Queens Museum of Art (sound art), Deitch Projects (film), Bereznitsky Gallery, Berlin (conceptual), World of Wonder Gallery, Hollywood (video installation) and the Ontario Crafts Council (visual installation). Uncredited appearances include the cover (and throughout) Slava Mogutin‘s NYC Gogo due to visual installations we did through Slurp, set design for the IFC Halloween spot on the Voluptuous Horror Of Karen Black, who we also assisted at the Whitney Biennial, and an acting role in Michelle Handleman’s “Dorian.” In 2009 we made history as the first sanctioned performance artist invited to perform at the Armory Art Fair, but we are not committed to any one medium in the exploration of a concept.

Mexican Salad Toss? Watch Jack in a Box to Find Out: Gay Bear NYC

by Accidental Bear

JACK IN A BOX Season 3: The Advice (Ep 22)

This is worth a watch to see the hunk-of-burning-love in bed, shirtless, on phone, just saying. Jack awaits a phone call from Drew and it becomes increasingly clear he has no clue how to date/be normal. After freaking out, he gets some misguided advice from his perpetually single girlfriends. Can Jack be smooth with his moves? Unlikely.

Bike Lane Blues of the Day: Do You Play by the Rules? | Video

Do you stay in the bike lane although they may be full of mayhem and pot holes?

Bike Lane Blues of the Day: As we’ve seen, NYC cyclists don’t always respect the rules of the road. But, as New Yorker Casey Neistat makes painfully clear in this PSA, it’s hard to respect the rules when the rules don’t respect you. (via thedailywh.at)

Scooter Laforge Hijacks Accidental Bear 3/14- 3/20

by Accidental Bear

SCOOTER LAFORGE ENTERPRISES’s; Scooter for President

I think comparing artist is for the birds but I can’t help think of the late, great Keith Haring when I gawk at Scooter Laforges art work. I reckon that he may be the Keith Harring of the modern world. Scooter  is an undeniable force and his popularity is growing exponentially.

Provokes emotion and stirs up your comfortable little world


He has conquered both coasts and now seeps into the middle of america as well. How would Kentucky handle Mr La Forge? My first thought would be that they would shit themselves then go running for the hills. If they stop kissing their cousin for a minute they might find themselves unexpectedly turned on by, Popey with a hard on. BLASPEMY! Scooters work is for the aquired taste and an advanced palate. Those that have the ability to digest unconventional art will feast on his paintings and drench themselves in his clothing. To me, Scooters art slaps me in the face and takes me out of my comfort zone. It makes me ask myself what is art ( an on going debate in my head for decades). It is clear, Scooter doesn’t do art but is ART.

ALL EYES ON SCOOTER!

SCOOTER DOESN’T DO ART, HE IS ART

GAGA GOO GOO, Shhhhhh Don’t Talk , Just Be

by Accidental Bear

GAGA GOO GOO is like a walking art installation. I don’t  care what she has to say or if she ever sings again. But like a train wreck for the good or bad , when I hear her name I do a double. Whether she has a penis or not, covered in red meat or wearing nothing , she tickles my artistic button ( would that be my male G-spot). I think GAGA would look cute hung in a frame in my bathroom. Outfit of MY choice of course.

Lady Gaga visited her old New York City apartment with Anderson Cooper for a60 Minutes segment to air this Sunday before the Grammy Awards.

Gaga will perform her new song “Born This Way,” to be released on Friday, live at the awards show. The song has been described as a new“gay anthem.”

However, in the 60 Minutesclip, even the power of celebrity cannot open every door on the Lower East Side.
