Following up on the successful and much talked about Swimming Cities of Switchback Sea, SWOON will be taking the crew up the Adriatic to Venice, just in time for this summer’s Bienale

The Swimming Cities of Serenissima is a fleet of three intricately hand crafted vessels that will navigate the Adriatic Sea from the Karst region of Slovenia to Venice, Italy in May of 2009. Designed by the visual artist SWOON, the floating sculptures are descendants of the Swimming Cities of Switchback Sea (Hudson River, 2008) and the Miss Rockaway Armada (Mississippi River, 2006 and 2007).”

To kick things off, there is a benefit in Bushwick this Saturday, more info after the jump.

Recession-Proof Drinking

The first time I ever played Bubble Hockey was at an arcade on the boardwalk of some Mid-Atlantic state’s beach.  I played it once and was fascinated.  I think after that I only played it like three more times in my life, mostly because I couldn’t afford to go to the beach or couldn’t find anyone to play it with.  Fast-forward 20 years, I rediscovered Bubble Hockey and combined that with beer and in turn became as coordinated as I was 20 years prior.

Steve Powers in Brussels


Steve Powers latest show, Semaphores of the Soul, opens tomorrow night at Alice (Artists Living in Constant Elevation) Gallery in Brussels, Belgium.  Showcasing some of his best work from the past seven years, “Powers has created a new way of painting, a hybrid of text and image that functions as a screen shot of his mind.”

We’re especially partial to the rendering of Bez from the Happy Mondays in the center of the drawing above.

Exhibition Dates: 29.01 2009 > 07.03.2009

VERNISSAGE: Thursday 29.01 2009 – 18:00 to 22:00
