"I got this song Burn stuck in my head so I did a remix and Ellie DMed me and she’s into it" by Four Tet
My favorite Four Tet tracks are the ones he randomly dropped, as if he needed to get the music out to the public as quickly as possible in fear that the inspiration would leave him entirely. This Ellie Goulding rework is yet another stellar example of a sound that is strong, yet complex.
“Love…the beauty of it, the joy of it, and yes, even the pain of it, is a most incredible gift to give and to receive as a human being. And we deserve to experience love fully, equally, without shame, and without compromise.”—Ellen Page (via terrakion)
“Caribbean festivals are festivals of the street, and taking over the street is an important element because before as the enslaved, Caribbean people were not allowed to take to the street without passes based on Slavery pass laws”—Michael Dash (via caribbeancivilisation)
The Hammer Museum recently opened a major historical survey titled "Take It or Leave It: Institution, Image, Ideology." It describes the show as “the first large-scale exhibition to focus on the intersection of two vitally important genres of contemporary art: appropriation (taking and recasting existing images, forms, and styles from mass-media and fine art sources) and institutional critique (scrutinizing and confronting the structures and practices of our social, cultural, and political institutions).”
One of the artists in the exhibition is Fred Wilson, the New York-based conceptualist whose work often examines how people of color are represented in the historical record — and by the institutions that help write that record. Wilson was the guest on Episode No. 33 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast, a program taped live at the Toledo Museum of Art. On the occasion of the Hammer show, we’ve added it to our SoundCloud page.
