Sorry, I know it’s not my day, but I wanted to share this article from the WSJ.

First, designer Gareth Pugh’s Fall 2009 collection from Paris. Instead of a runway show, he screened this video.
Second, an interview by Gothamist with Miranda July, which I just love because I also have a TV that doesn’t get channels, I totally love Lorrie Moore, and I get really excited when I go to an art event, but then I feel awkward and I just go back to my room.

This is just a quick post as I’m flying away tomorrow and haven’t packed yet: the Royal Scottish Academy has traditionally showcased art students from the 4 Scottish art schools in their annual open student exhibition. This year, for the first time, 60 students were selected from degree shows at Glasgow School of Art, Duncan of Jordanstone in Dundee, Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen, Edinburgh College of Art, and Moray School of Art in the Highlands.
What was previously a jam packed mish-mash of works from 400-odd students is now a coherent overview of some of the most promising emerging artists from 2008. Here are some links to images and reviews – personal favourites are the images of Euan Taylor’s giant crane like construction, “Cloud Muncher” from his ongoing endeavors at Inefficient Solutions, performance from Stuart McAdam and this HUGE painting by Fraser Gray;
