How graffiti artists turned former warring areas into a giant artwork for peace
Lebanese graffiti artists Mohamed and Omar Kabbani were born during the dark years of their country's civil war, which raged between 1975 and 1990. In recent weeks, fears of a return to violence have surfaced in the wake of Lebanese prime minister Saad Hariri's shock resignation and subsequent suspension of that decision. But the twin brothers, aged 34, are keen to show there's more to their home nation and the wider region than just bullets, bombs and conflict   Read More ...

How ‘Disaster Artist's’ James Franco found art and heart in ‘The Room,’ the ‘Citizen Kane’ of bad movies
Four years ago, during the making of “The Interview,” the North Korea-provoking comedy that would go on to flirt notoriously with history in its own unpredictable, stranger-than-fiction ways, James Franco found the strange and vaguely Eastern European patois of cult movie icon Tommy Wiseau spilling out of his mouth. It was a distinctive, stilted, impossible-to-place pattern of speech already well known to loyal fans of “The Room,” arguably the most celebrated cinematic misfire of all time   Read More ...

David Hockney’s Life in Painting: Spare, Exuberant, Full

Did this artist go too far?
Robert Shore is editor of Elephant Magazine, a visual arts quarterly. This is an edited excerpt from his book "Beg, Steal and Borrow: Artist's Against Originality," published by Laurence King. If you want to riff on the "Mona Lisa," go ahead. Scratch a biro mustache on her. Give her a full beard if you like. Don't go drawing facial hair directly on the original, of course; that's the physical property of the Louvre, and the museum's conservators are likely to get very angry with you   Read More ...

Review: JET takes the 'American Buffalo' challenge
When it is staged in top form and really running well, David Mamet’s “American Buffalo” can be a force of nature. The 1975 play about small-time thieves in an even smaller Chicago resale shop makes use of Mamet’s trademark language, much of it vulgar, to comment on the way people interact in an increasingly cold and paranoid world. Sometimes the actors in the new production at the Jewish Ensemble Theatre — most notably Matthew David as Teach — do right by Mamet   Read More ...

Two remarkable exhibitions show how color came to art photography
NEW YORK — It wasn’t that long ago that color didn’t qualify as serious photography. There were reasons for this. Color film was often chemically unreliable. When it wasn’t, color reproduction was so expensive it was mostly restricted to advertising, fashion, and the glossier precincts of photojournalism. This meant that color, fairly or not, was considered commercial, superficial, or both. Eliot Porter got a pass, because he did nature photography (“Eliot Porter’s Nature” opens Dec   Read More ...
