Sixty Launches a New Online Magazine…

Sixty Launches a New Online Magazine...
Dear friends, Sixty has been pretty quiet since 2014 began. Maybe you noticed. Either way, we have a lot of new things happening that we’d like to share with you. First and foremost, we have spent much of the past six months reflecting on what we’ve done over the past three years.

In The Studio with Mario Gonzalez, Jr.

In The Studio with Mario Gonzalez, Jr.
Zore, Zore Sixtyfour, Mario–he has many names. And depending on the time zone or space, you may get a different persona which often leads to a different body of work. But no matter which version of Mario Gonzalez, Jr. or series of work you find yourself encountered by, there is undoubtedly a common thread found throughout that can be traced back to a family of artists, awareness of early pioneers... 

An Escort Through Xpressionism

An Escort Through Xpressionism
Xpressionism, curated by famed photorealist painter Harry Sudman, is a beautifully extensive and thorough examination of different artists’ connections to the aesthetic of the erotic, fetish, and kink lifestyle.

Investigating the Underground: The Art of Harry Sudman

Investigating the Underground: The Art of Harry Sudman
I have been aware of Harry Sudman’s paintings for several years but routinely missed opportunities to view his pieces in person.  After getting in touch with Sudman, we scheduled to meet at his studio in early May to view his paintings and discuss his process.  What I had anticipated to be a brief display of paintings and a quick chat morphed into a three hour, in-depth discussion about the Chicago... 

Sustainable Art: Chicago’s Twelve

Sustainable Art: Chicago’s Twelve
Mary Ellen Croteau. My Eye. 2012. Zhou B. Art Center, Chicago, IL (Photo Credit: Image Courtesy of Danielle Jackson) Orange traffic cones, plastic prescription bottles, fallen tree branches, rulers, belts, deodorant caps, wire, and nails—just to name a few—are all materials that are familiar to us. They’re so mundane that many people don’t think twice about them. We encounter them in our homes,...

“Art Is a Way of Life”: An Interview with Martin Bernstein
Martin Bernstein's studio. Entry to "the paint room." November 2011. (Image courtesy of Andrew Roddewig.)
