Watch The Premiere Of "I Love Mexico City" A New Short Fashion Film From AllSaints

In the latest of its global creative initiatives, AllSaints has chosen to explore and celebrate Mexico City. The resulting short film, entitled ‘I México City’ champions the people and spirit of the city, focusing on the ways that local individuals use their personal style, identity and environment to put a unique stamp on AllSaints’ collections. Wil Beedle, AllSaints Creative Director: “Over seven days in March, we set ourselves the task of exploring Mexico City to find a diverse range of kindred spirits, who we feel express the values and attitude of AllSaints. Having photographed and filmed them in and around their own homes, streets and neighborhoods, we immediately shared the resulting imagery in a huge installation that became the backdrop for a local party we held in their honor. Just like the city itself, the week spent filming ‘I México City’ was chaotic and unpredictable, and more inspiring than most conventional ‘fashion-week’ experiences we’re ever likely to have.”

Ranch Of The Rising Sun Presents Sensual Assault In Pioneer Town, California

Curated by Leyden Pavlova, Sensual Assault is a special group exhibition highlighting the physical sensations that dominate in this wild desert space. One feels the wind, the heat, the sun, and an overwhelming visceral sensation of the vastness of geological time. Visually, these forces can be seen in the earth, dry and sharp, worn smooth in places, and the plants that grow imperceptibly only to explode with flowers in the spring. The overwhelming sensations from this landscape provide a context to explore the human body’s violence and vulnerability. Through texture and movement, sensuality and savagery, the human experience is shown through the traces and imprints that people and places leave on each other. Featuring artists Theodore Boyer, Pola Esther, Marie Tomanova, William Kaner, Shig and Ethan Rider. photographs by Marielle Stobie

A Preview Of "Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between" @ The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute In New York

The Costume Institute's spring 2017 exhibition will examine the work of Japanese fashion designer Rei Kawakubo, known for her avant-garde designs and ability to challenge conventional notions of beauty, good taste, and fashionability. The thematic show will feature approximately 150 examples of Kawakubo's womenswear for Comme des Garçons dating from the early 1980s to her most recent collection. The galleries will illustrate the designer's revolutionary experiments in "in-betweenness"—the space between boundaries. Objects will be organized into eight aesthetic expressions of interstitiality in Kawakubo's work: Fashion/Anti-Fashion, Design/Not Design, Model/Multiple, Then/Now, High/Low, Self/Other, Object/Subject, and Clothes/Not Clothes. Kawakubo breaks down the imaginary walls between these dualisms, exposing their artificiality and arbitrariness. On view from May 4 to September 4, 2017 at The Metropolitan Museum Of Art in New York. photographs by Oliver Maxwell Kupper

Read Our Short Goodbye Letter To Writer and Raconteur Glenn O'Brien

Clash’s Mick Jones shared his personal guide to a healthy and happy life: “Don’t be a cunt to anybody.” And always out front and center was Glenn, looking handsome and sophisticated in his slacks and shirts or his Basquiat-customized leather jacket, somehow seeming a notch cooler than the uber-cool legends of art, music and fashion he had on the show. There is no greater example of Glenn’s savvy for turning a cultural moment into a historical movement than the years he spent producing TV Party. It set the stage for where his career would head.

Georg Baselitz "Descente" @ Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac's Paris Pantin Space

Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by German artist Georg Baselitz in the Paris Pantin space. Titled Descente (Down), it brings together new paintings and works on paper. The exhibition comprises five groups of works that are stylistically and iconographically linked to the fragmented self-portraits known as the Avignon series, which was shown at the 2015 Venice Biennale. Two of Baselitz’s concerns were the notions of “late work” and “age”, with particular reference to the historical decision of the city of Avignon to reject the donation of a series of late works by Picasso. In 2017, one year before Baselitz’s 80th birthday, these themes are still relevant, as he has recently stated: “I have been looking at Picasso’s late works. Avignon. At the time Picasso had reached his lowest point. Nobody wanted these later paintings. Arman and Christo did their thing in Paris whereas Picasso was absent. If you’re getting old you keep asking yourself: Am I still part of it, or are the others already ahead of me?” Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac  "Descente" will be on view until June 2, 2017 at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac. photographs by Mazzy-Mae Green
