Strange and nightmarish, and yet frighteningly grounded in reality, the art of Ralph Steadman has tapped into the socio-political id of the world for the past 50 years. Now the work of this legendary illustrator is on display at the Society of Illustrators (128 East 63rd Street, New York, NY).
A Retrospective: Ralph Steadman spans three floors of the building and includes his work for children (his award winning illustrations for Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass), his satirical work for Punch, and his lengthy body of work with gonzo journalist Hunter Thompson. Steadman’s working relationship with Thompson included Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ‘72, and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream, with art on loan from Jann Wenner of Rolling Stone.

Wikipedia, we all rely on it to some degree, whether it’s tracing the history of the SALT talks for a hastily written term paper, settling a barroom debate on when The Cure’s “Friday I’m in Love” was released, or tracking the careers of artists and thinkers. Sometimes we forget that wWikipedia is something edited by everyday people and it can feel like the information just manifests on its own. Now the Museum of Modern Art (11 West 53rd St, New York), in collaboration with Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center and Wikimedia present #WikiAPA Edit-a-Thon on September 2 to remind people the importance of being a part of the flow of information online.
As part of a month long program happening across the nation #WikiAPA encourages anyone to come to MoMA (visitors are encouraged to bring a laptop) and help edit Wikipedia topics from a recommended list. It’s an evening of enjoying the arts and setting straight the facts. The event is open to the public but visitors should RSVP.
