A blogger finds a Revel in New York sticker on the street and blogs about it



A blogger walking up Broadway found this sticker somewhere in the vincinity of The Ace Hotel and wrote a cool little piece on us. The self congratulatory highlight:

"I was pleased to learn, however, that Revel in New York: A Look at the City Through its People is something very different. A series of guide books and video profiles, Revel in New York is a campaign that strives to showcase members of the city's creative communities from across the spectrum, from dance to architecture to photography to music to theatre and beyond, seemingly composed in a manner that is intelligent, informed and reverent of the city's illustrious past (not just mooching off it). It certainly seems like a cool idea."

Thanks Flaming Pablum!

Revel In New York takes San Francisco with Site Unseen: An evening of short films selected by artist & curator Billy Miller


If you happen to be in San Francisco on February 3rd, stop by the Artists' Television Access Space for an evening of short films curated by the NYC based artist & curator, Billy Miller.  Revel In New York will be featured along with a number of interesting filmmakers and features like:

“Film For January 1, 2012” (2012) by artist-filmmaker Scott Treleaven. An intuitive assembly of super 8 films collected in the months leading up to the New Year, and created on the last day of 2011. Soundtrack: “Clouds Without Water” by Psychic TV.

“Heri Meets Artists Gilbert and George (Again)” (2011)
Filmmaker Heri Mkocha meets the iconic Modern British artists in East London by complete luck. They talk to Heri, and it all gets a bit fanboy.

“SOUL” (1988) 
Infamous New York City underground star Marsha P. Johnson reciting poetry at Jimmy Camicia’s Hot Peaches production “The Heat” at Theater for the New City, NYC.

A big thank you to Billy Miller for including us in the show!

Reading List | The Autobiography and Sex Life of Andy Warhol


Chris Trela (producer of the documenatry Guest of Cindy Sherman) teamed up with photographer Gretchen Berg and counterculture icon, John Wilcock (one of the founders of Interview Magazine & The Village Voice) to reissue the 1971 classic, The Autobiography and Sex Life of Andy Warhol. They've updated the content with some interesting stories and new photos and kept the entertaining interviews: Taylor Mead, Nico, Viva, Marisol and the rest of the usual suspects in tact.  The editors will be discussing the book and signing copies at the Gagosian Shop (988 Madison Ave) on June 24th. From 6-8 pm.



This is a rare exception to the usually unimpressive mix of new Warhol media products that have over saturated the market. The industrious producer/publisher Chris Trela releases this substantive work that is both interesting and entertaining.
