Alejandro Vigilante, inspired by the world of the internet, is an influential figure in pop art. Painting the iconic figures of the century and their interactions with the internet, his work reflects on the contemporary social culture in a layered and structured form.
It's interesting that there are so many plays at the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe that have a female serial killer as protagonist. It's the zeitgeist of this Fringe.
Scott Walker. The Wisconsin Governor recently raised eyebrows on NBC's Meet the Press by one-upping rival Donald Trump's plan to build a wall across the U.S/Mexico border. How? By suggesting a similar wall be constructed up north, thereby turning America into the world's largest gated community.
There have been many articles written about his accomplishments and a recently published biography "And Give Up Showbiz?" by Josh Young but without sticking to the observations of others... I hoped to find more about Mr. Levin with my own set of questions.

Something amazing is happening in a small West Seattle theater. ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery has been a mainstay of the community for quite decades, but I don't think they've ever created anything as edgy as their upcoming production of Green Day's American Idiot.
Painted wearing a purple top with matching stilettos complete with tiara, but with her bum out against a backdrop of a Union Jack and the word 'HISTORY', the stencil-style piece appeared on the side of the Winchester pub in Islington, London, N1, on Wednesday.
For a few months at the end of 2013, French artist Philippe Parreno took over the entire exhibition space of the Palais de Tokyo, a process which had never been done before.
If I could sing like Lulu to all of my friends and family who helped make this trip and this play possible, I would. Here goes.

September is now upon us, as art collectors return to their city homes, bronzed and relaxed from the summer sun. As a first taste of fall, we've rounded up a selection of exhibitions featuring painting that we are looking forward to, from Tokyo to Los Angeles and everywhere in between.

Ernest Hemingway: Between Two Wars opens Sept. 25 at the Morgan Library and Museum in Manhattan. It's the first-ever major museum exhibition of his work, and promises a thorough examination of how the author honed his craft and brought emotional life to his writing.
Artistic inspiration comes from anywhere even painting by numbers. However, in this case, the numbers are a table or matrix of numbers. How? First, take a look at this image that was part of the mathematical art exhibit at the Bridges conference which celebrates connections between math and art.
As a performer, all I want to do is give back to the world. Being up on stage and singing is one part of the joy, but what brings the process full circle is knowing that somewhere in the audience, I am affecting someone and making them think in a different way.
Sculptor Tanya Ragir's abiding love of narrative allegory and figurative symbolism has always operated within an edgy, engaged conceptual framework.
How Do You Feel Now? is a record about expectations versus reality. My post-college "adult" life was nothing like I'd imagined growing up. I was in my late 20's and still living at home.
In 1785, Joseph Haydn was commissioned by a canon in Cádiz, the ancient port city in southwest Spain, to write sacred instrumental music for Holy Week illustrating the "seven last words of the Lord."
Partners In Crime," Acorn TV, "The Secret Adversary," "N Or M?" Agatha Christie, David Walliams, Jessica Raine, Camilla Marie Beeput, Matthew Steer, James Fleet, Alice Krige, Miles Roughley, Roy Marsden, Zinnie Harris, Claire Wilson, Edward Hall, David Hi,

Numerous articles have recently raised concerns that robots will soon be taking over everyone's jobs. Nowhere is this more evident than in hospitals and nursing homes, where artificial intelligence and automation have led to increasing levels of productivity from robotic devices.
An homage to a love triangle about white colonialists is going to present some, uh, challenges to an artist who just wants to make a three-minute music video to put on her VEVO page -- and Taylor Swift found that out the hard way. The singer debuted her vid for "Wildest Dreams" at the VMAs Sunday night, and even the most casual observer would have noticed that -- for a clip that's set in Africa -- it's about as white as a Sunday morning farmer's market.
