Luna Luna. Photo by Elise Thompson In the summer of 1987, artist and curator André Heller invited over thirty celebrated artists to help him create Luna Luna, a fantastical fairground in Hamburg, Germany. Salvador Dalí, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, David Hockney and Sonia Delaunay, plus many others created surreal and artistic rides, and attractions. Be amazed and delighted by Jean-Michel Basquiat’s Ferris wheel, covered with doodles and drawings, some fun, some political. Keith Haring’s Industrially fabricated tarps and merry-gp-round, David Hockney’s round Enchanted Tree, Roy L ..read more

Costumes from Polyester. John Waters: Pope of Trash at the Academy Museum. Photo by Elise Thompson. On September 17, The Academy Museum opened a first-of-its-kind exhibition honoring the films of underground filmmaker, author, art collector and iconoclast, John Waters. “Pope of Trash” runs through August 4, 2024. The ultimate outsider probably never expected to be honored by the Academy, which is about as insider as it gets, and right before he received the unrelated but well-deserved honor of a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Waters wanted a shocking beginning, so in keeping with the th ..read more

Burning Man 2023. Photo by Paul Koudounaris. Written by Paul Koudounaris Gosh Burning Man was fun . . . actually it was fine for me, I took off as soon as the rain started and got out before it was locked down, and here are some photos from two lovely days. As I was driving out the catastrophe was already unfolding, the ground was turning into quicksand and the road out was littered in cars that had already been stuck. As I passed them (thank you Jeep, thank you offroad tires) a man jumped out of a Mercedes that was stuck in the mud and started screaming at me and waving a handful of cash. H ..read more
