‘You Know the Bird That Does That Crazy Mating Dance? That Was Me’: Petra Cortright and Marc Horowitz on How Their Personalities Mesh

Sometimes romances are born of charming chance encounters and novelistic meet-cutes. Other times, they begin with two people drunk in a hot tub.

From Richard Prince’s $5 Million Muscle Car to Bunny Rogers’s Inner World, Here Are 5 of the Best Artworks at Frieze LA

With her Oscars performance last week, Billie Eilish’s captivating sensibility—hypersensitive, at once guarded and vulnerable, defiantly self-determined—may have reached its biggest mainstream audience to date. That sensibility—which one might describe as a generational thing—is also alive and well in art, specifically in the work of the artist Bunny Rogers. Read more on artnet news.

Emo Artifice as an Archive of Feelings

In her installations, videos, poetry, and performances, Bunny Rogers not only evokes teen angst and depression, but also the emo icons through which she channeled those emotions at a younger age. These include the melancholic singer-songwriter Elliott Smith, the goth-punk version of Joan of Arc from the animated TV show “Clone High” (2002–03), and the jaded character Gaz from another cartoon series, “Invader Zim” (2001–06).

According to Timur Si-Quin’s Transformers posters, there is a film and it is COMING SOON. Atop the generic graphics, which could advertise any number of iterations of the franchise, the artist has pressed bruised petals or littered the surface with delicate green leaves.

CRITICS’ PICKS: Selbstbildnis at Société

“Selbstbildnis” examines the evolution of self-portraiture from the 1970s to today amid contradicting movements. While most of the artworks in the exhibition are pulled from the gallery’s roster of contemporary artists—Trisha Baga, Petra Cortright, and Ned Vena, among others—the show’s selection of historical pieces weaves a curatorial thread that deploys a meditative rather than disputative tone to complicate static notions of identity.
