Mickalene Thomas THE INSTITUTE OF CONTEMPORARY ART / BOSTON 100 Northern Avenue December 12–April 7 Mickalene Thomas, Sandra: She’s a Beauty , 2009, rhinestone, acrylic, and enamel on wooden panel, 72 x 72". Comprising five glittering, large-scale paintings, Mickalene Thomas ’s latest exhibition flaunts both the presence and the absence of her African-American female subjects in boldly patterned domestic interiors. Sandra: She’s a Beauty , 2009, centralizes its sitter, the artist’s mother, whom she posed and photographed amid clashing fabrics and cushions; Thomas then cut and reassembled the photograph into a collage that served as the basis for the painting. Swarovski rhinestones affixed to the canvas accentuate the jewels on Sandra’s arms but also the skin of her neck and the shape of her makeup, adding color, shading, and texture to the surface of the painting.

ROJO®magazine June 2001 to May 2011 After 10 years and 40 printed issues of the first world class all visual art magazine, in May 2011 ROJO decided to stop publishing its printed magazine. A decade of art featured in more than 7.000 pages. More than 800.000 copies distributed in more than 37 countries, and arts submitted by artists from around the world. ROJO feels it has acomplished its goals with the magazine, so this is why it is now investing its energies and resources in new projects and enterprises. Thank you to all contributing artists, and respect to every artist who submitted art but never made it to the paper.

Wegman, the site said, “joins the ranks of reality TV stars, epic fails, and of course, feline internet sensations with our first ever animated gif. Be warned, this puppy is hypnotic!” It is. But Wegman’s gif is also loaded with art historical mojo.
