Mad Quickies: 30 Years of Censored Art, A 3D Printed Sculpture That I Can’t Explain, Multicolored Mountains in China and More!

It’s your Wednesday Quickies and damn if there aren’t some colorful things for you to look at here.

Yes! Three decades of LGBTQ art that had been previously censored at museums will now be on view! “The 17 artists represent the ‘controversial’ perception of LGBTQ work over three decades, from Robert Mapplethorpe’s photographs in the 1980s to the expulsion of David Wonjarowicz’s “A Fire in My Belly” from the National Portrait Gallery in 2010.”

Whoa. These kinetic sculptures by John Edmark are making my head spin.

I don’t even know how to describe this so I’ll quote the article: “fahz is a custom 3D-printed vase with an asymmetrical form that is computer generated from the silhouettes of multiple people’s faces.” Just click and look at it. Do it now please.

I can’t believe I’ve never before seen these hills and mountains in China. The colors and shapes are truly breathtaking. I need to learn more about their formation because wow.



Here’s one of John Edmark’s kinetic sculptures. Oof.
