Meanwhile, in news of another artistic extreme, The Creators Project has written up the latest exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit — The Obama Paintings — which is a collection of 2,307 paintings of the President by Rob Pruitt. Each day for the last six years, he took 15 minutes to make one such 2′ x 2′ Obama portrait — all of which related to news/imagery from the particular day they were painted. The project will continue through the end of Obama’s presidency. And outside of the institution of the museum, a group of Lisbon graffiti artists are taking their city by storm — and they’re all senior citizens.
Jumping from old age back to youth, The Diary of a Teenage Girl — which premiered to instant acclaim at Sundance — now has a trailer, which you can watch here. The film takes place in 1970s San Francisco and stars newcomer Bel Powley as a teen who begins an affair with her mother’s (played by Kristen Wiig) boyfriend (Alexander Skarsgård). And if you can fit in 2 more minutes of idle trailer-watching, check out the trailer for the upcoming Amazon Prime series, Catastrophe, which Indiewire describes as “a new take on Knocked Up.“
