Today in Massive Links androgynous male cover-model Andrej Pejic gets censored by Barnes & Noble, and Curator Hans Ulrich Obrist talks with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

Put your art visors on because you’re about to experience ARTSCENTER TALKSOURCE (the proposal).
In response to the growing number of images stored on artist hard drives we’ve decided to publish our IMG MGMT series more frequently! Launching tomorrow, our latest series of image based essays will include contributors, Chris Collins, Paul B. Davis, Sara Ludy, Virginia Overton, RogerWhite + DushkoPetrovich, Z. Drucker + A.L. Steiner, and Tommy White. What’s contained in these essays will mostly remain top secret till the series launch of course but we can tell you that Roger White + Dushko Petrovich promise to e-volutionize art criticism as we know it. That’s happening tomorrow and Thank God for that. I don’t think I could wait another day.
