The first exhibition of Native American documentarian Edward S. Curtis comes to Depart Foundation

Studio Visit: Daniel Small

We pay a visit to L.A.-based artist Daniel Small whose work was included in the Hammer Museum's Made in L.A. exhibit

Nestled in a pocket neighborhood in Echo Park, Daniel Small’s studio is quite the kaleidoscope of thought—adorned with jacquard tapestries, a partially assembled Ikea desk, and various pieces of pseudo Egyptian antiquities from his latest installation, Excavation II—featured as a part of the Hammer Museum’s biennial Made in L.A. exhibit.

Prada Releases New Designs for their Baroque Minimal Sunglasses Line

The iconic line continues to evolve.

Baroque and Minimal are two words that don’t usually come together. One calls to mind the decadently decorated while the other connotes the stripping away of excess in favor of clean functionality.

We speak to the young West Coast rapper on the tails of his new EP, Prima Donna

After years of study, scientists were able to prove the theory that sunlight has mass and weight. It presses down with an almost impossibly small amount of force. Vince Staples, one of the new leaders of rap music coming from the West Coast—whose EP Prima Donna was just released via Def Jam Recordings—writes and talks as though he’s been aware […]

An Opinion on the New Day

The victory of Donald J. Trump is an immobile signpost that will mark the tidal retreat from the dominant world order of the last century. America—the nation, the idea of a liberal democracy that burned on the hill in the minds of men, has burst at the seams under the weight of total control by the artificial intelligences that are […]
