My very cursory overview of what’s going on in the universe of ‘net art is now up at ARTnews. If there ever was a story that was like falling down the rabbit hole, this was it. So much to see and read and watch.
Who’s on Third?, by Llyn Foulkes, 1971–73. Part of the artist’s retrospective, Llyn Foulkes, at the New Museum. Opens today, on the Lower East Side. This is a bangin’ show, people. Go see it.

Got a look at Peter Zumthor’s proposed design for the new LACMA building. It is all kinds of amazing. Find my write-up in ARCHITECT Magazine.
Above is one of my favorite features of the new design: the eastern portion of the building cantilevers over the La Brea Tar Pits’ biggest tar lake. In my view, this is one of L.A.’s most underrated sights. I’m glad to see the museum paying attention to it. (Photo by C-M.)

I recently spent some quality time inside Channa Horwitz‘s installation at François Ghebaly in Culver City, the last gallery show organized by the artist before her death in April. I liked the installation so much I made a GIF of all its movable parts (in addition to putting together a few words about it). Horwitz also has an interesting personal story. Click through to Hyperallergic to get the scoop — and the GIF.
