Galleries don’t have to be in big, grand buildings. Or even in buildings at all. Station to Station is a cargo-train-cum-gallery, which displays works of art as it travels across the US.

A playboy for today?

Playboy is attempting to reach a younger audience and ‘re-assert itself into American youth culture’ through a series of specially-commissioned art projects.

The first is a giant installation by the side of a road in Texas. Designed by Richard Phillips, it features the Playboy bunny hovering above a black Dodge Charger on a concrete plinth.

This idea occurred to him after seeing the water line marked on the walls of the flooded galleries in New York’s Chelsea art district. (Nice one, Jamie C)

Human pantone

Believe it or not, every visit to the chemist/drugstore entails some subtle racial undertones.
