This is nice: Artists like Tracey Emin, The Chapman Brothers, Grayson Perry and Polly Morgan have come together to collaborate on The Artists’ Colouring Book of ABCs, a colouring book for kids which will benefit Kids Company, a charity founded by Camila Batmanghelidjh to support vulnerable inner-city children in the UK.
The project is headed by Charlotte Colbert, of Humpty Dumpty Publishing, and Lauren Jones and Alix Janta, the two people behind Alteria Art, which produces affordable artists’ prints. You can view the originals in an exhibition at Sotheby’s on Bond Street, London next month. Check out some more of the letters after the jump, along with an A-Z listing of all the artists involved!

!! OMG, Priority Innfield: Ryan Trecartin’s new video work, ‘CENTER JENNY’ !!

Screen Shot 2013-11-03 at 2.37.37 PM.png
Los Angeles based artist, Ryan Trecartin showed 4 new video works this year at the 55th Venice Biennale, and now you can view one of those films, CENTER JENNY online over at Vdrome, up until November 8th!
Ryan’s films are kind of like that f*cked up dream (nightmare) you have where you wander around the shopping center from your youth, bumping into people you’ve known, having random chats, interacting with strange objects, all the while none of it strings together or makes any sense. Check out one of the videos from Priority Innfield HERE.

!! OMG, break through: Mitch Stratten’s ‘Orifice Conditioning Plate’ !!


South African artist Mitch Stratten fuses an obscure metaphor, a throbbing original soundtrack, a complicated moving set and three heads into an interesting piece of video art called “Orifice Conditioning Plate.” The name references a piece of diamond mining equipment, but I know what you all were thinking.
The piece is for sale in a limited edition of 1200, and you can purchase it here.
