Independent, Fly Rare Car Dealer, Arthur Kar Talks To Ssense

This guy's life and work is something else. When thinking about people who freaked their whole shit, you gotta bring Arthur up.

Ssense: How does a 16-year-old kid get hired at Porsche? 

Arthur Kar: I got the job through perseverance. I visited the owner of the garage in Paris six times in a month telling him, “I wanna work for you, I wanna work for you, I wanna work for you,” until I got the job. I was at Porsche for four years, and then at age 20, I stopped because I realized I wanted to own cars. I couldn’t stay working as a mechanic if I wanted to do that, so I left and decided to buy and sell cars, little by little. 

Ss: You did what you had to do, and it paid off. 

AK: Well, I enjoyed being that 16-year-old guy washing the car. I still am that guy. I have just as much respect for the guy that changes the tires, the oil, that washes the car, as the guy who sells or drives the most beautiful car in the world. They’re all the same people because they all have the same passion and essentially, they do the same work.

Best New Video Out "Blood Orange - I Know"

Kilo Kish Talks To Ssense

If there's an artist nowadays taking them fucking pics and doing her damn thing out here, it's Kilo Kish.

The tendency to be easily distracted is a trademark of our generation. And so few of us value alone time or understand the benefits of it. 

Alone time kind of fucks with you if you're a millennial. You have this crazy fear of missing out on things. When you're alone all you have are your own opinions and we're such a groupthink culture. You need to ask yourself, "Wait, how do I actually feel about this?" What I grapple with now is the other extreme. I spend so much time alone that I have to force myself to live within reality. I have to force myself to be like, "Oh, fuck. I need to do social media.” It's really strange. What I like to explore in art is, what's acceptable to the public? What's not acceptable? What are the different ways I can get around this stereotypical way of presenting myself? It's a never ending conversation.

Killer Mike Speaks On Government Brutality

I respect Mike heavy. Watch the video here cause I don't know how to embed Facebook videos.

I'm heartbroken over the beautiful, growing, living, breathing, laughing lives we keep losing at the hands of a fucking police officer. The man or woman who voluntarily has one of, if not the hardest job in the world. Yet a job sacred, an anointed position from whatever the fuck God you believe in. The job of protecting our life, the job of keeping us out of harm's way, the job of watching over us so we can all live a civilized life in America. But this is the experience we get? Kids being kids, young adults just learning what it is to fucking live, from making mistakes, to getting it right, from family men, to brothers, dads, hard workers, people hustling to live, kids told they weren't shit all their life. The senseless loss is staggering every time. Every fucking time. I'm gonna always do what I can to uplift but this shit has me down.

NPR Talks To The Painter Kanye's "Famous" Video References


This guy gets it. As all the best do.

I was gobstruck, is the word. I was absolutely floored and honored, and I almost felt like crying. I think that Kanye and I embraced each other, and everyone else was sort of like that — they were all high-fiving me and hugging me. There are experiences like that in the arts where somebody actually gets what you're doing. Not that your goal is to communicate — it's more self-enlightenment. But at that moment I realized that Kanye and I were on the same page completely. He was an art student, and speaking to him was like speaking to the brightest of my peers.

After 46 Years Planning, Christo and Jeanne-Claude Realize "The Floating Piers", Opening Today In Italy



This is so dope all I keep thinking about is how I'm not in Northern Italy at the moment and can't over in time.

Visitors can experience this work of art by walking on it from Sulzano to Monte Isola and to the island of San Paolo, which is framed by The Floating Piers. The mountains surrounding the lake offer a bird’s-eye view of The Floating Piers, exposing unnoticed angles and altering perspectives. Lake Iseo is located 100 kilometers east of Milan and 200 kilometers west of Venice. 

“Like all of our projects, The Floating Piers is absolutely free and accessible 24 hours a day, weather permitting,” said Christo. “There are no tickets, no openings, no reservations and no owners. The Floating Piers are an extension of the street and belong to everyone.” 

A 3-kilometer-long walkway was created as The Floating Piers extend across the water of Lake Iseo. The piers are 16 meters wide and approximately 35 centimeters high with sloping sides. The fabric continues along 2.5 kilometers of pedestrian streets in Sulzano and Peschiera Maraglio. “Those who experience The Floating Piers will feel like they are walking on water – or perhaps the back of a whale,” said Christo. “The light and water will transform the bright yellow fabric to shades of red and gold throughout the sixteen days.”

Here's the official web www.thefloatingpiers.com

Financial Times Interview w/ Gosha Rubchinskiy

The guy's pieces and energy around the product is very interesting to me.

“I didn’t want to show again in Paris,” he says. “I wanted to move to a different city, do something different.” He considered Milan, then Pitti extended an invitation. “I had never been to Italy,” he says. “I wanted to go to Florence for the Uffizi gallery. I wanted to see Leonardo and my favourite Botticelli.” One of his inspirations for this new collection is the director and poet Pier Paolo Pasolini. “Now is the right moment to think about what is Europe,” says Rubchinskiy. “Pasolini was anti-globalist and thought it was good to keep the spirit of Italy in Italy, of France in France, of Russia in Russia. I think it’s the right moment to remember Pasolini, and to think about what is Europe.”

Business Of Fashion Scores Talk With Supreme's James Jebbia

Always good to hear this man say words. Article not as deep as you may want but interesting nonetheless.

His approach to staffing new stores is no different. “The people I work with is what gives the store its personality,” he said. “They treat it like it’s their own.” For the shop in London, Jebbia picked 1980s skate legend Dan Jagger to be its store manager. A similar approach guided his decision to ask Samir Krim, a founder of the French skateboard company Minutia, to manage the new Paris boutique. “He’s a big part of the skate scene there,” said Jebbia. “If we didn’t have someone like Samir, we wouldn’t have opened a shop in Paris.”

New Yorker Art-World Insider Article, "The Bouvier Affair"

This was so interesting.  Def one of the coolest stories you'll read in a while. Take some time, why not.

The Geneva Freeport, which may be the world’s most valuable storage facility, consists of seven beige warehouses and a large grain silo in La Praille, an industrial zone a short tram ride from the city’s lakeside panorama of banks and expensive hotels. One recent morning, rain was falling on the chain-link fence that runs through the property, and snow was visible on the mountains to the south. Iris scanners, magnetic locks, and a security system known as Cerberus guard the freeport’s storerooms, whose contents are said to be insured for a hundred billion dollars, but the facility retains a blue-collar feel. There were signs to the showers. Men stood around in aprons and smoked. Everything about the place tells you to look the other way.
