Dungen storms the Getty

The critically-acclaimed Swedish band comes to the Getty to perform their soundtrack for historic animated film "The Adventures of Prince Achmed"

In between releasing two critically acclaimed albums (2010’s Skit I Allt and 2015’s Allas Sak), Stockholm-based psychedelic progg-rock quartet Dungen was asked to create an original score to Lotte Reiniger’s 1926 touchstone The Adventures of Prince Achmed, the oldest surviving full-length animated feature film. Inspired by her particular style and characters portrayed within, the members of Dungen collaborated on themes […]

Tony Conrad: Completely In The Present

A screening of Tyler Hubby's new documentary as part of The Broad and the Ace Hotel's ongoing "Un-Private Collection" series.

Tony Conrad, now an old man, stands outside of the vaunted modernist high-culture complex that is the Lincoln Center, almost sick with loathing. Here stands everything he is against: the authority of the composer, art for consumption by the elite, a slavish reverence for the past. It is just one of many such scenes in Tyler Hubby’s new documentary, titled Tony […]

Six Breakups & Six Drinks, as told by Bill DiDonna

Alice – The only Puerto Rican girl in my lily-white small town. In an almost imperceptibly quiet voice I asked her what she was doing this weekend. “Are you asking me out?” she demanded loudly enough to stop everybody in the hall. I nodded ready to hide in my locker for the rest of the semester. “Six o’clock in front […]

An exhibition as tattoo parlor at Printed Matter's New York and Los Angeles art book fairs

Permanence is a sacred concept. Museums exist to conserve and proliferate culture largely through the development and expansion of a permanent collection, which is then shared with the public through a series of exhibitions, programming, and traveling shows. A collecting institution is frequently judged by the quality and scope of its cultural acquisitions, and high profile directors and curators are […]

Joe Jonas

"For so many years I had a lot of cooks in the kitchen and other members of bands that I was working with. This was the first time that I was really able to say, ‘I want to create something on my own and see what this could be.’”

As rites of passage go, popstar evolution comes with a high casualty rate. Joe Jonas was born in 1989, yet he’s sashaying past “the 27 club” with a litany of chart-tracking hits, a supermodel ex-girlfriend, and a jet-set lifestyle. But it’s the omissions that stand out – no arrests, no drug overdoses, weapons charges, near-fatal accidents involving swimming pools. Yet […]

Thirsty work with the FLAUNT staff and Jameson’s for St. Patrick’s Day

Ireland: lush rolling hills, and the peat, ahhh the peat. Although best known today for its leprechauns, multi-national tax avoidance, and peat, the Irish have been making magnificent whiskies for centuries, and Jameson’s distillery was founded in 1780, giving it a notable heritage of smooth triple-distilled Irish malt whiskey (Scotch by comparison is double-distilled). Our mates from Jameson’s dropped by […]

Deep Throat Choir

The all-female singing collective speaks to us about the entwinement of performance and politics.

In 1972 a pornographic film called Deep Throat, starring Linda Lovelace as a frustrated woman who could only be sexually satisfied through performing fellatio, triggered three major events in culture. One was the advent of the “Golden Age of Porn,” an era of increased respectability and cultural discussion around pornos. During this time films such as The Devil in Miss […]
