Instagrams of the Art World: Gavin Brown’s Christmas List, and More

This week, by far our favorite Instagram discovery has got to be the beautiful geniuses over at FoolsDoArt, two Squarespace employees who spend their free time recreating classic artworks with office supplies and raw determination. If we had our druthers, we’d just do an entire thread of their works — “Girl With a Pearl Earring” and “The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp” are especially priceless — but we’ve got a whole seven days of phone-snapped artistry to catalogue, and holiday-ish artistry at that. See, below. (And meanwhile, thank you, Washington Post, for devoting virtual column inches to this well worthy phenomenon.)

Instagrams of the Art World: Special #MiamiArtWeek Edition

Miami Art Week — AKA, #MiamiArtWeek, #ABMB, and/or #helplolwhatishappening — has finally drawn to a close, but not before the myriad art-worlder attendees had a chance to catalogue their experience on Instagram. Above is rapper Brooke Candy (brookecandy)’s good morning salute to the city — and below are a few more choice snapshots from throughout the week. (Note: We recommend playing Will Smith’s “Miami” on repeat through the duration of this post, also probably hitting yourself over the head several times with a Nerf bat, and you’ll just about approximate the experience of having been there yourself.)

Instagrams of the Art World: Ferguson Protesters Take to NYC, and More

Rashaad Newsome (rashaadnewsome) captured a video of protestors taking to the New York City streets following the grand jury’s failure to indict Darren Wilson — “No justice, no peace, no racist police!” (sounds like he also contributes an affirming “woo!”) — as did Klaus Biesenbach (klausbiesenbach), while Awol Erizku (awolerizku) posted the above photograph.

Instagrams of the Art World: Emily Ratajkowski Nabs Painting, JR Hits Istanbul, and More

Collector Stefan Simchowitz (stefansimchowitz) posted this shot of model Emily Ratajkowski (of “Blurred Lines” fame), who was apparently pouting because she couldn’t keep this Zachary Armstrong piece — or at least, that’s how we’ve chosen to interpret the caption, “This is what happens when you can’t get something you realy [sic] want,” lest we realize this “wanting” isn’t necessarily directed toward the artwork at all. Armstrong (z___a), meanwhile, regrammed with the caption “#careerpeaked.”

Instagrams of the Art World: Performa’s Gala, Tilda Swinton, Mykki Blanco, and More

Takashi Murakami (takashipom) has been posting in-progress photos for his show at Gagosian all week — but our favorite has got to be this grump-faced reminder, presumably to studio assistants.
