Dating, murder, and DIS Magazine were all under one roof this last week for the 10th Frieze London, the annual art fair held this year in the Regents Park area. With the works of over 1,000 artists on display from 175 galleries from around the world, this was the most global-reaching year in the event’s history. It was also the busiest, and walking through the exhibition space, it wasn’t hard to see why.

“I liked the rather crazy mix that the city had to offer,” responds Martin Parr when asked about his first trip to Georgia’s state capital. And what a mix it is. Where else can you find Baptist churches, white wine-swilling society folk, and Coca-Cola flip-flops

In 1971, William Burroughs asked Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, “How do you short-circuit control?” “To me, that meant how do you locate control? Where is it?” Breyer P-Orridge explains from a Lower East Side apartment on the morning of—what else?—the apocalypse: a day this past spring the world was predicted to end. “At first it was about economics and power, but there had to be a deeper level of control, and finally Jaye and I decided it was DNA.” Genesis, who insists on the gender-blended pronouns “s/he” and “h/er,” is speaking of Lady Jaye Breyer P-Orridge, the partner with whom the Pandrogeny project was conceived.
Still from Thinspiration by Seychelle Allah and Rhett LaRue This year’s program for the seventh traveling, bi-annual Aboveground Animation show includes a wide array of works by twenty-five international artists working in animation and related media. With an evening event of back to back screenings followed by a live performance by Mirror Mirror at Ramiken Crucible on Friday, and a subsequent online exhibition presented by DIS , Aboveground Animation permeates through the new, quirky and sometimes sinuous directions in hand-made animation and three-dimensional rendering. While a return to the human body and meditations on figurative forms—along with a tendency towards electronic music in favor of dialogue—is prevalent throughout many of the works on view, the lack of conceptual continuity for this grouping of videos is actually rather refreshing.
