Tallgrass TV – ‘Self Medicated: a Film About Art’ Interview

Trailer: Dwelling art show

November 24, 2014

<p><a href=”″>Trailer: Dwelling art show</a> from <a href=””>Ethan H. Minsker</a> on <a href=””>Vimeo</a&gt;.</p>

Here is the first trailer for our Dwelling Project. We are looking for artists from around the world who want to build buildings at the scale of 5 stories to one cereal box and recycled elements. Then you ship it to Sydney when we get an address. You will not get it back. You will not get paid. And it might be destroyed as part of the project. If you do this its for the love of creating. We are making a film about the project so your work may live on. First let us see your work and we will give you more info. Please re-post or send this to artists you think want to take part.

Dwelling: art project. Sydney, Australia

October 29, 2014

We need your help on our next art project. Please go to our page on Iniegogo and donate. You can get our zines, books and films and more.

Building a global community of artists. Creating venues that allow artists to experiment.

Short Summary

Over the past year my team and I have been looking to do a project in Australia. I am excited to announce that we have touched base with local artists in Sydney who are thrilled to work with us. However, as with any event in another country, there are costs involved. I need your help getting there in order to fulfill this project and to help provide spaces for young artists to do the same!

This will be the fourth overseas art project and film the Antagonists have created in the last 8 years. From New York, Germany, Portugal, and Ecuador continue to work with and develop the artists we encountered on past projects. We couldn’t have made those trips possible without the help from our supporters via Kickstarter campaigns . Each project resulted in a feature documentary film that continues to help the artists involved. We try to provide venues for artists, mentoring, job placement, and exposure, and we hope—with your help—we can do it again. We have everything ready for this event, but we need your help in covering travel, accommodations, and final production costs to build the exhibition and workshops. With your support, we will expand our reach and discover new art and artists.

Thank you

Fanzine :CFA talk with Ethan Minsker

<p><a href=”″>Fanzine :CFA talk with Ethan Minsker</a> from <a href=””>Ethan H. Minskel</a> on <a href=””>Vimeo</a&gt;.</p> <p>Fanzine :CFA talk with Ethan Minsker and Eric Wallin<br /> <br /> Find our facebook page here. <br /> <br /><br /> <br /> Psycho Moto Zine was a periodical published from the late 1980s to early 2000s, consisting mostly of short stories, reviews and artwork. This fanzine would later birth the Antagonist Art Movement, a consortium of like-minded artists, writers, filmmakers, etc.<br /> <br /> The magazine was originally published in 1989 under the name East Coast Exchange by Ethan H. Minsker. Copies were produced illicitly by friends who worked in copy shops during Minsker&rsquo;s college years at School of Visual Arts in New York City and in Washington D.C. during Minsker&rsquo;s summer breaks.<br /> <br /> By 1994 Psycho Moto Zine (PMZ) had transformed into an arts and literary fanzine with reviews that covered underground art, fanzines, films and music. This connection between different creative elements was the inspiration for what would later become the Antagonist Art Movement.</p>

Surplus Candy – Street Art Documentary

September 26, 2014

Hanksy! One of my top graffiti artists is debuting a web series on street art October 1.

“There’s a bunch of art getting painted on walls between New York City and LA,” Hanksy noted in a statement. “And it’s my opinion that if a knucklehead artist like myself is randomly given some weird pseudo-serious spotlight, they use it for good not evil. Surplus Candy is a filmed continuation of the illegal show I held earlier this year in the East Village.”

Horn Please

September 15, 2014

7 states. 45 days. A backpack trip.

Result: A documentary on Indian Truck Art

Horn Please is a documentary that encapsulates various aspects of an age-old folk art form of India — the Truck Art, an art form that makes journeys through the dusty highways of India, incredible in more ways than one. With a kaleidoscope of bright paints, motifs, typography and some unique couplets, these Indian trucks take you on a rather colourful journey of diverse cultures and beliefs of the country. The designs painted on the trucks do not merely stand for aesthetic purposes, but they also attempt to depict religious, sentimental, and emotional viewpoints of the people related to the truck industry.

This documentary focuses on the origin of truck art and its evolution since then. And also how it influences not just the world of art, but also the lives of its artists and the truckers who interact with it on a daily basis. Largely, it investigates on whether the once-accepted type of art as a unique form of expression, will survive the test of time in this era of capitalism.
