Instagrams of the Art World: HBD Jerry Saltz, Kehinde Wiley, and More

Okay, Klaus Biesenbach (klausbiesenbach) stepped up his Instagram game hard this week. It was achingly, impossibly difficult to choose between this tease of Bjork’s newly restored swan dress and this one in which he lofts “82 white roses – hand delivered” toward the camera as if offering you love itself — but in the end, we had to go with the above image, a birthday missive to Jerry Saltz, which is apparently also an “impersonation as werner herzog and klaus kinski from ‘mein liebster feind,’” which, just, yes.

Instagrams of the Art World: Titus Kaphar’s Rousing New Show, and More

A number of artists posted laudatory shots of Titus Kaphar’s new show at Jack Shainman Gallery (see also: Wangechi Mutu), but our favorite caption has got to be Rashaad Newsome’s (rashaadnewsome): “Titus Kaphar’s opening gave me life with no parole. Definitely a must see exhibition.”

Instagrams of the Art World: Happy 2015 Edition

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.
