The Creators Project: Art, Mind, Heart and Soul

The brainchild of microchips and music magazines seems like a "hmm...come again?" sort of venture, but when pulled off as seamlessly and pretty freaking radly as VICE and Intel did this past Saturday for the launch event of The Creators Project, at NYC's Milk Studios, then the only head scratching done is the next day. Think of it as a "wow, dudes...did we really pack all that 'awesome' into a 14 hour day?" Yeah. Yeah, we did.

Considering the breadth of musics, arts and peoples we spent hours upon hours interacting with, a split up of the day's going-ons is a bit necessary, if only for my sanity. For this visual piece, we're gonna focus on the installations, film and general beauty of the stunning bodies of work on display. Music reviews (to follow) will be broken up into individual posts by set.

  

Thanks one hundred times over to VICE and Intel for throwing a top-notch bash that's still got me in permagrin mode. Truly an event for the mind, body, heart and soul.

 

Please enjoy the images below, and jump to this link for the full gamut of awesomeness.

Banksy Documentary - Exit Through the Gift Shop

Blur and Paris Hilton have both been treated to the "Banksy touch", but long before either of those, erm, "musicians", felt his effect, the legendary street artist was defying laws and legals systems in an effort to have his works be seen and be shocking.

Banksy

Exit Through the Gift Shop is a documentary about Banksy, whose title references a specific work in relation to one of the British street artist’s notorious break-ins to museums. While Banksy's stencils feature striking and humorous images occasionally combined with anti-war, anti-capitalist or anti-establishment slogans, the feature intends to look at his entire repertoire in a humorously anonymous light.

The film’s premiere is at Sundance, prefaced with the following on it's official site. In the late 1990s, a hybrid form of graffiti began appearing in cities around the world. Enlisting stickers, stencils, posters, and sculpture and spread by the burgeoning Internet, it would be labeled “street art” and establish itself as the most significant counterculture movement of a generation. Los Angeles–based filmmaker Terry Guetta set out to record this secretive world in all its thrilling detail. For more than eight years, he traveled with the pack, roaming the streets of America and Europe, the stealthy witness of the world’s most infamous vandals. But after meeting the British stencil artist known only as “Banksy,” things took a bizarre turn. Sundance has shown films by unknown artists but never an anonymous one. Banksy turns the tables on the only man who has ever filmed him, creating a remarkable documentary that is part personal journey and part an exposé of the art world with its mind-altering mix of hot air and hype. In the end, Exit Through the Gift Shop is an amazing ride, a cautionary modern fairy tale . . . with bolt cutters.
