David King and Jaime Raybin say they were berated by TSA at LaGuardia Airport about copies of Skull Microwave, a controversial book by political artist Marlos E’vans.
Today, TSA Public Affairs spokesperson Lisa Farbstein tweeted a photo of an object the organization’s staff encountered at New York’s JFK Airport.
The weather’s getting hotter — at least it was last weekend — which can only mean one thing: it’s time for Bushwick Open Studios!
A new gallery hub is emerging in Bushwick. The low, two-story industrial building at 1329 Willoughby Avenue is already home to Microscope Gallery, and in January 2015 two more galleries will open up there.
It’s telling that Exchange Rates, last weekend’s Bushwick-wide art event, is described on its official website as “an exposition,” as opposed to a straightforward exhibition or a sales-driven art fair. The four-day program of pop-up shows, talks, panels, performances, and ambulatory happenings felt at times like a biennial, a symposium, and, yes, even an art fair.
When the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) joined Instagram two weeks ago, the move prompted bemused and occasionally earnest reactions from the publications tasked with paying attention to these kinds of things.
