overnight to berlin


If you ever need a reason to go to Berlin, here’s one for tonight.

“The mystery surrounding the Berlin street art phenomenon XOOOOX continues to provoke questions. The seductive, introverted-looking women stenciled on building facades and construction fences have fascinated passers-by from Milan to New York City, but what exactly do they mean? And who is hiding behind the name – a man, a woman or a group of young street artists? Since being arrested for graffiti vandalism in the late 1990s, XOOOOX has refused to reveal an identity to avoid trouble with the law.  ”

Ryan McGinness’ 50 Parties


50 Parties.  50 Themes. 50 Weeks.  In a row.  In the studio.  No Sponsors.  No Strangers.

It’s the whole ‘no strangers’ thing that will keep The Enablist out.

“In New York City, there has never been a shortage of parties. Parties celebrating a new product or publication or development have been rampant. Those celebrating or nurturing a meaningful social exchange, on the other hand, have been noticeably absent. I decided to create the 50PARTIES project in response to this void: to bring back the artist’s studio space as an environment for social exchange and revitalize the practice of artist’s studio as salon.
With this project, I’m endeavoring to create genuine parties with no hidden agenda, parties for the sake of parties, with absolutely no sponsorship. I’m interested in the idea of party as medium and vehicle for creating content. To that end, each party will be based on a different concept or theme, aimed at creating real interactions between guests.
Attendance at each party will be by invitation only in order to create an intimate environment populated by friends in which we can skip tedious party chit-chat and engage in more substantive and rewarding conversations. In this environment, these dialogues can be captured and shared world-wide on 50PARTIES.COM through video, photographs, and audio recordings, with the goal of inspiring others.
50 parties. 50 themes. 50 weeks. In a row. In the studio. No sponsors. No strangers.”

Ryan McGinness, May 2009
