issue no. 5, november 2017

a completely random curation of thought-provoking art, music, humor, and life

Siberian artist Natasha Yudina uses fur and yarn to create warm creations—skulls, Lenin's head in fur, Putin's face on an oversized blanket, an envelope. Her collection Siberian nightmares is "An expedition through the horrible Siberian nightmares during the long hibernation."

Activist and artist Zoë Buckman pairs femininity with objects and textures often associated with the masculine. Elements like boxing gloves, fabric from a wedding dress, and metal come together to speak to the resilience of women, while reminding viewers of the brutality against women.

Black, beautiful, damn funny, and on point, Tiffany Haddish is rightfully on the rise to comedy queendom.
