Street Art is More Than Just Spray Cans; It is Yarn Bombs and Colorful Knits

Los Angeles-Art

Considered to be the mother of yarn bombing, Magda Sayeg transforms urban landscapes into her own playground by decorating everyday objects with colorful knitted and crocheted works. Her work has evolved from a single knitted stop-sign pole to large-scale installations around the world. She has also been featured at festivals and museums such as South By Southwest and La Museo des Esposizione in Rome. Back in the day, one of her first commissioned pieces was created for The Box at The Standard, Hollywood. And now, many years later, she's reinstalled the piece titled Aquarama exactly as it was way back when. We met up with the Williamsburg-based artist to discuss the beginning of her medium, her new projects and working with the iconic Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garcons...

Annie O Presents Kate Davis

New York-Standard Sounds

Kate grew up as a jazz darling, but she grew into something significantly more dynamic. Days spent practicing and performing became nights spent writing music—cathartic indie rock—simultaneously informed by and rebutting of her training. Time intended for technique slipped into secret listening sessions of Beach House, Elliot Smith and TV On The Radio. In the same bright, arresting croon that ignited her youthful stardom, Davis created confessionals. Throughout twelve tumultuous tracks, she poetically reflects upon the intricacies of what it is to live, ruminating on topics too close to her heart; identity, self-worth, loss. Trophy will be released November 8, 2019 on Solitaire Recordings. Annie O caught up with Kate before her show at The Standard, East Village on Sept 9.

BBZ or "Babes" is Building Spaces for Marginalized People

London-Stand Up

How would you react if someone told you they'd started a collective (or a movement, if you want) for the need of deeper and more expansive friendships? Enthralled, am I right? That's exactly how I felt when Tia Simon-Campbell, co-founder of South East London-based BBZ, told me that exact thing. She, alongside Naeem Davis, started the organization to help build intentional spaces for queer, trans and non-binary people of color. Currently, the members consist of spoken word poets, writers, casting directors, DJs, dancers and more from across all of London. Now, 3 years after the inauguration, more than ever the group feels like they are able to inhabit and participate in spaces all over the British capital. But the mission doesn't stop there. We met up with Tia during The Standard, London's celebratory dinner for BBZ alternative graduate show...
