New Release

Infinite Canvas
A Film by Ryan McGinley featuring Carsten Höller

Last year, seven artists, including Carsten Höller, led an augmented reality (AR) project in Apple Stores around the world. In collaboration with Apple and the New Museum, this project became [AR]T, a series of interactive AR installations. A new documentary directed by Ryan McGinley, available to watch on Apple TV, highlights the work of each artist and chronicles how they pushed the boundaries of their work to explore the uncharted territory of augmented reality art.

Partnership

Dan Colen × Dover Street Market
Twelve brands create exclusive merchandise to support Sky High Farm

Following their February 2020 partnership, Sky High Farm and Dover Street Market are launching an ambitious yearlong project featuring merchandise collaborations across the industries of fashion, art, film, food, and design. For the first iteration, Sky High Farm founder Dan Colen has selected twelve independently minded brands allied by a shared sense of civic responsibility to create exclusive garments or accessories bearing the farm’s signature artwork—created by Joana Avillez—to be sold online and at Dover Street Market’s New York and Los Angeles locations. Raising both funds and awareness, the collaboration will support Sky High Farm’s commitment to standing up against inequity in our food systems and to providing sustenance, nutrition, healing, and new opportunities for underserved communities.

12 Sunsets
Exploring Ed Ruscha’s Archive at the Getty Research Institute

The Getty Research Institute (GRI) has launched 12 Sunsets: Exploring Ed Ruscha’s Archive, an interactive website that allows users to browse more than 65,000 photographs of Sunset Boulevard taken by Ed Ruscha between 1965 and 2007. The website allows users to “drive” down a digitally composited representation of this key urban artery, as well as to view, search, and compare geotagged photographs. The photographs are part of Ed Ruscha’s Streets of Los Angeles Archive, a trove of 500,000 photographs, notes, drawings, and records documenting the artist’s photography of Los Angeles, which was acquired by the GRI in 2012.

Italics
Art and Landscape

Launching on October 5, 2020, Italics: Art and Landscape is a new online editorial platform that will highlight the extraordinary cultural and artistic heritage of Italy through the country’s most celebrated gallerists. Initiated by Galleria Continua’s Lorenzo Fiaschi and Gagosian’s Pepi Marchetti Franchi, the project brings together sixty-three galleries to give readers behind-the-scenes access to contemporary, modern, and ancient art through storytelling and original imagery. In her first contribution, Marchetti Franchi recounts the memorable experience of listening to Gregorian vespers at Sant’Anselmo all’Aventino, Rome, with Theaster Gates.
