A most excellent pairing—Sight Unseen curates a pop up shop – SHAPE SHOP – inside Creatures of Comfort. Opens tomorrow, April 10th – May 6th. New Friends (Alex Segreti & I) will have select weavings, Best Woof prints, and new Torus bangles in the shop. Sight Unseen is also launching their first ever printed matter – Paper View – which looks totally gorgeous. New Friends ‘how to weave’ demo is included in the book. We’re psyched!!!
I saw Girlfriends directed by Claudia Weill at BAM last night. One in the series of girl centric films curated by Lena Dunham. Can’t stop thinking about it. 1970s NYC art girls rule!! Highlights: Susan Weinblatt, animal print sweater dress, wooden spool wire table, red walls, mauve, satchels.
Satchels should be the new tote.
…we were nowheresville…
1988 NYC – sandwiched between Chinatown and LES lived Kim and Thurston in apartment below ‘the famous artist’ Dan Graham. Real downtown punk rock living! Railroad style. Watch the 3 part interview here. Incredibly dry humored Thurston is very entertaining. Cat and Kim talk included. Thanks for the tip Brock Shorno!

Hi! New Friends weavings are here! Our new collection – Best Woof – is inspired by dogs and shapes. We made our first ever silkscreen print of a weaving in an edition of 25 of each color (blue and black), along with a large format photocopy poster - Dogs, Roving & Combs.
