Below are still images from “Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present,” a 2012 documentary about legendary performance-art star Marina Abramovic.

An actual physical copy of the Winter 2012-2013 issue of the Usual founds its way into our hands. The mag is a Montauk, New York surf-culture magazine that feels like a newspaper (it’s printed on newsprint and is formatted like a tabloid), but the editorial style is like a magazine,
The “Black Carrot Duo” has another wheat-paste street art poster on a building hoarding on Prince Street in Nolita, in New York City. Artist Lady Millard’s has put her “Lady” tag on the work.

Wheat-paste street art poster by artist Dylan Egon of Native American in traditional garb and toting a modern, high-powered assault gun near the corner of Wooster and Grand streets in SoHo, in downtown Manhattan, NYC.
An example of yarn-bombing par excellence: A Volkswagen Beetle and a bicycle completely wrapped in bright-colored knitted yarn on Elizabeth Street, south of Broome Street, in the Chinatown-Nolita hinterland of the Lower East Side, in downtown New York City. This is the work of Brooklyn-based Polish artist Agata Olek. Abso-f*cking-lutely
More awesome wheat-paste street art from A.S.V.P. on Wooster St. in SoHo. Love the idea of heart “protection.” Nice work.
New York street art: Another one of those celebrity-image and Andy Warhol pop-art mash-ups by artist Mr. Brainwash that have been appearing around lower Manhattan the past few months.
