OMG-worthy. If you’ve ever sat for hours with the ol’ healing brush and clone stamp tool (and who hasn’t), Photoshop’s upcoming (when?!) content-aware fill should give you a thrill.

“No Sleep” is a series of photographs of abandoned mattresses found around New York City, though mostly in Brooklyn. The beds are sometimes seedy and sometimes luminous, pathetic, monolithic and architectural, strange, out-of-place and totally banal. I’m interested in how these beds present all those things we do on them — sleep, dream, make love — and how by dumping them onto the streets of New York, we bring our very private lives out into the light.  More here.

I saw these Dirk Braeckman photographs at the Armory a few weeks ago and they’re still stuck in my mind, so I thought I would share:

I know, I know, you’re sick of art fairs, but the AIPAD Photography Show is smaller and more manageable, I promise. Look, less than 100 exhibitors!

March 18 – 21, 2010

Park Avenue Armory
643 Park Ave & 67th Street
New York, NY 10065

Some of the Saturday afternoon “special events” look interesting. Here’s a partial list:

2:00 p.m.: STREET SEEN: The Psychological Gesture in American Photography, 1940-1959

This new exhibition, on view at the Milwaukee Art Museum from January 30 through April 25, 2010, examines a unique and pivotal moment in American photographic history. The first major examination of street photography of the 1940s and ‘50s in nearly 20 years includes work by Lisette Model, Robert Frank, Louis Faurer, Ted Croner, Saul Leiter, and William Klein – and uncovers a crucial time in American art, when global media was in its adolescence and photography was just beginning to achieve recognition in the contemporary art world. A highlight will be the New York debut of Time Capsule, a recently discovered short film by Louis Faurer.
Moderator:
Lisa Hostetler, Curator of Photographs, Milwaukee Art Museum
Speakers:
Saul Leiter, Artist; William Meyers, Critic, The Wall Street Journal; Ann Thomas, Curator, Photographs, National Gallery of Canada; Tom Gitterman, Gitterman Gallery, New York

Tonight, on the walk back to civilization from the Armory.

“No Sleep” is a series of photographs of abandoned mattresses found around New York City, though mostly in Brooklyn.
