David Choe’s Controversial Bowery Mural Has Been Defaced (Multiple Times)

Almost immediately after artist David Choe completed his giant mural on New York City’s famed Bowery wall (located at the corner of Houston Street and Bowery), the artwork was defaced.

Goldman Global Arts, curators of the Bowery wall, made a very controversial decision to select David Choe for the wall despite his bragging about predatory sexual behaviour on his own podcast a few years ago (if you’re unaware: further reading). Last week Hyperallergic wrote about the Bowery mural and its part in the normalisation of rape culture.

Superfine! Fair Headed to New York City

Superfine! NYC 2017 is the first rendition of the Superfine! art fair to hit New York, bringing nine gallery booths and 30 indie artist positions to the Meatpacking District. The event subverts the typical fair, opting for a hyper-curated environment over stuffy warehouses. Founders Alex Mitow and James Miille say they created Superfine! as a “reaction to the overall trend of the art market, which we felt was becoming a bit exclusive and stale and ultimately not serving the needs of the artists who depend on steady sales and a constant stream of new collectors to sustain themselves.”
