Cannes audiences aren’t known to be shy. Reports of the films being booed this year include Gus Van Sant’s The Sea of Trees, starring Matthew McConaughey and Naomi Watts in a soul-searching drama about a man who tries to end his life. But the movies that garner standing ovations win the festival's… READ MORE

GET OUT: Robert Irwin at DIA Beacon

BY Sehba Mohammad

The Dia Beacon is a perfect example of leaving the city behind. The sprawling art complex, a former box-printing factory, is nestled among the lush greenery of Beacon in the Hudson River Valley. Easily accessible via car or rail, the vast museum with streams of natural light and massive contemporary installations is a work of art in itself. This is probably because the master plans for the institution were designed by the Californian artist Robert Irwin; who is… READ MORE

It is that time of month again: Netflix revealed the movies and shows we can stream in June. They include formidable feminist docs like Free the Nipple, following the mass-movement of topless women, and Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer chronicling the court cases against the Russian art collective. Also about a powerful female figure, is the much awaited Nina Simone biopic What Happened, Miss Simone? (2015). The usual deluge of binge watch-television is also… READ MORE

The lame art battle between Marina Abramovic and rapper Jay Z came to an end yesterday with the Marina Abramovic Institute issuing an apology,  to both Abramovic and Jay-Z, after it was revealed by the rapper's art advisor that Hova did in fact contribute a sizable donation to the institute. According to the New York Times, experts in the theater of war,  the Marina Abramovic Institute in Hudson, N.Y., released a statement verifying Jay Z's donation. The… READ MORE

NEW MUSIC: Laday Gaga X Kendrick Lamar “PARTYNAUSEOUS”

BY Cacy Forgenie

What you're about to hear is over three years old, a collabo between Kendrick Lamar and Lady Gaga called "Partynauseous";  but  was released to Soundlcoud this morning. "Partynauseous" is pretty laid back tune with some hard beats and lyrics from Lamar. Gaga sings the hook. It's definitely more pop and radio friendly than anything from Lamar's recently lauded To Pimp a Butterfly. This isn't the first time the two artists have worked together.  The two… READ MORE
