Instagrams of the Art World: Frieze London, Fred Armisen, and More


In case you missed it (ha), Frieze Week is this week, and while there have been plenty of ’gram-happy visitors, perhaps no work quite caught our eye like Darren Bader’s “Sculpture #1.” We’re just suckers for a good ol’ four-legged eggplant with a bendy-straw snout — as captured here by Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis (elisabethtnt).


Keren Cytter (kerencytter) caught Fred Armisen standing by her drawing at the MCA Chicago.


Meanwhile Annie Clark, AKA St. Vincent, pulled waitress duty at her sister and brother-in-law’s new restaurant, Resident Taqueria, in Dallas — here’s an interview about “what she learned” from the experience (via kotokotooto).


Hank Willis Thomas (hankwillisthomas) visited Flower House Detroit — much like it sounds, an abandoned house in Detroit filled with flowers, but just for this weekend (October 16 to 18).


Shantell Martin’s (shantell_martin) grandmother passed away two days ago, so now she’s in search of a place to host their 80-plus collaborative needlepoint pieces.


And speaking of needlepoint, here’s some from the studio of Katrina Majkut; her work will be part of Ben Sutton’s (itsbensutton) Gowanus Open Studios tour, tomorrow at 4 pm.


Frances Stark (therealstarkiller) visited LA’s Clark Library to see the handwritten third chapter of Oscar Wilde’s “The Picture of Dorian Gray.”


And finally this week, it looks like our favorite art-spotting dog Pickle has a copycat (copy-dog?), found admiring Dana Schutz at Petzel (via katarinajaneckova).
