FRANK151  Master Curators since 1999

'The idea was for Hunter to be filing every day from Havana, this newslike, day-by-day reporting. I asked him what he was interested in doing while he was down there. He had some idea, but it was very hard for me to follow. It was some kind of conspiracy theory. He was following a line, a thread of a thought, but I wasn’t really getting it. “That’s what I’m interested in, and I’m not going to give you all the pieces,” is what he told me.'

It's tempting to call General Dogon's battle against the gentrification of LA's Skid Row a David and Goliath story, but David won his fight. General Dogon hasn't lost yet—in fact small victories have been achieved—but the fight's far from over.

Coming into the weekend like...

Brooklyn-based artist @erinmriley brings said selfies to life with true substance, weaving incredible hand-dyed tapestries up to four-feet wide—from faceless camera-wielding babes bent over in front of mirrors, to POV snaps of girls hands down their panties. And she doesn’t just stop at portraits; using a plethora of images sourced online, she also includes party photos, still-life’s of assorted naughty items (like sex toys and birth control), and even car wreck landscapes. Forgive the cliché, but these definitely ain’t your grandma’s tapestries…

The Crown Table is a FRANK151 video series where we bring together a group of artists from the same discipline and then get them to have a non-awkward conversation about what they do and why they do it. For the premiere episode we gathered illustrators @robineisenberg Sara M. Lyons @saramlyons , and @lillipore at @sohodesignhouse . Working different angles of their chosen medium, Eisenberg is best known for her enamel pins (the Mulder & Scully is a must-have), Lyons is behind Whatever Forever, and Millipore creates a feminine-yet-gangster take on tattoo flash. Watch the three bond over Elfquest comics, Bob Ross, and the ups and downs of becoming an artist. Lots of knowing head nods on this one!

F151: How do you define feminism?

Not feeling a boundary or line to live within. To act as you wish as a person, to deconstruct pink and blue.

F151: Was there a flashpoint for you in becoming a feminist or creating feminist art?

Shooting my sisters and girlfriends made them feel very alluring and dominant at the same time. They felt like a woman should. To feel what has been given to them and that their body, itself, is a work of art. That was always moving to me. the difference between feeling like a girl and a woman.

“I wanted to create a female mob, I wanted girls to be fuckin’ with other girls” “I felt like there was a disconnect, social media has taken over their lives, they didn’t want to go outside anymore, they didn’t want to communicate with other people. Then I started making bomber jackets and shirts, and girls really loved it and wanted to start wearing MBM for what it stands for.”

@ryutahironaga grew up skateboarding in Japan and didn’t take up photography until 2013. When he travelled to the Philippines to learn English before continuing on to the United States, he asked the guys at the skate shop where to go. After they directed him to the skatepark, he saw dudes like he’d never seen before and had to take their picture. Hironaga now lives in Los Angeles, where he shoots for outlets including Transworld Japan and Ollie. Though he’s preparing for a photo show back in Japan next month, last week he still had time to hang out and wild out with skaters Matt Jackson and Uriel Pineda around Downtown Los Angeles.

"I’m just humbled. I have a goal, and until I hit that goal I’mma stay humble. And I just keep to my style, I don’t fake my style. I’m too young to change my shit or fake my shit. I’m only 26. I just got in the game so the thought of changing it up or selling out doesn’t make sense. I’ve only dropped one album, but I’m on some longevity career shit. If the stuff I’m doing isn’t going to work in the long run, I’ll change it, but right now it’s too soon to see. It’s a balance. If I need to reinvent myself to get to my goal, maybe I need to do it, but never sell out. It’s a science that not everyone is gonna be able to figure out, but when you do, you’re golden!"
