The Hole gallery in New York City is currently hosting Minneapolis-based artist Mathew Zefeldt’s first solo exhibition.

A total of eight oil on panel paintings are displayed at the space, portraying crashed cars, fighter jets, and deer. In regards to the visuals shown

Travel can allow for growing, learning, and understanding ourselves and the world we inhabit. During my months-long stay in Mexico—where I’ve met so many people from different cultures, who think differently than I do—I’ve felt the reality of this introspective, mind-opening treat firsthand. But trips don’t last forever; eventually jet-setters head home to the environment they left behind: They return to jobs, adhere to the same cultural conventions, and are

It's the dead of winter, so naturally, all any of us can think about is laying on a pleasantly scorching beach with a good book and a maybe even a strawberry margarita. Our imaginations actively chasing that daydream is pretty much the only thing that's getting us through the cold days. But, if you're looking for real life warm weather and sunshine, Airbnb has affordable suggestions. According to the rental site,

Unless you're blessed enough to live in a climate that's enviably mild year-round, winter can be a tough pill to swallow. It's easy to feel like you'll never be warm again, but the good news is that a chic outfit can help combat the winter blues… at least partially. We're not even a month into winter yet, but there have been plenty of opportunities for celebrities to step out in

We won’t be so bold as to say that New Yorkers are the single authorities on winter style, but they’re highly qualified, if not for their prowess, then for their ability to stick out the chilling temperatures for what seems like eternity (speak to us in April when we’re still wearing Heattech). Because of this, we turn to Big Apple dwellers once again for guidance on how some of the

Technology-driven installation art may seem like a strange medium through which to explore Buddhist philosophy, but the work of Tatsuo Miyajima does just that. And it’s profound. Miyajima’s new exhibition—his first solo outing in New York—entitled “Innumerable Life / Buddha,” opens this week at Lisson Gallery. The show debuts five new installations by the Japanese artist, all constructed from intricate networks of red LED lights. Each individual LED displays a number

Anyone who calls themselves a sneakerhead can tell you about that first pair of kicks that really meant something to them. Whether it was a limited release shoe they'd camped out for, a pair they'd saved up for weeks to be able to afford, or sneakers they saw their favorite athlete wear and then knew they just had to have a pair, no true sneakerhead forgets their first pair, the

Last fashion week, Laurence & Chico did something we didn't think possible: It made loofahs fashion. No, really. Look at the below video and tell us these dancing queens swaddled in layers of tulle don't make you want to reach for your body wash and your credit card at the same time. Loofahs are basically ground zero for bacteria sure, but they also embody what the fashion industry loves: an
