Six artists say RIP to NYC's most iconic art store. Julian Schnabel's #PearlPaint story is great:
THE AGE OF SEMI- POST- POSTMODERNISM by @benadavis (Well. That was bookmarked for a long time.)
Imprisoned Somali pirates had seen Captain Phillips. @_DukeRiley asked, "How!?" They said, "We're pirates. We have pirate DVDs."
Artist @_DukeRiley used his Creative Time global residency to talk his way into a prison in the Seychelles so he could meet Somali pirates.
Just learned from artist, and @creativetimeNYC global resident, Mika Tajima that Toyota started out making looms for the textile industry.
Artists reporting back from their @creativetimeNYC global residencies. Can't wait for @_DukeRiley. (at @JoesPubNyc)
Coming Soon to Brooklyn: The Morbid Anatomy Museum via @db
These pieces of rebar we gnarled in Sichuan schoolhouse collapses. @aiww had each one carefully straightened.
Real (?) freshwater pearls in bowls as though they were grains of rice by @aiww at @brooklynmuseum.
Ai Weiwei took A LOT of selfies in NYC in the 80s.
Swoon's towering installation at @brooklynmuseum is as impressive as it is hard to photograph.
Robt De Niro Sr. 1960 o/c in nice little still life at @LoriBookstein. Last 90 minutes.

Who went to this African Arts Museum in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn? What was it like?

So @muckrack absorbed @listorious. And it's run by @sawhorse. And they put on the @shortyawards. I made a profile:
We will miss you @allegraburnette! Thank you for making MoMA's digital all it is! Without you, we'd still be here:

A sinkhole opened up at @corvettemuseum and sucked in cars!…
