Word of the moment: "blurrealist"


The New York Times reviewed a confusing installation at the Whitney by clothing retailer Eckhaus Latta. The "thing" combined museum show, fashion show, critique and boutique, which the Times said was an example of the "blurrealist" trend that combines art, commerce and commentary. 

Sounds to me like social media, and especially YouTube, is influencing fashion/art. Consider super-vlogger Casey Neistat as an example. He makes videos that straddle these same exact dimensions: art, commerce and commentary. 

Or take our own Gastronomad brand, for example. Whether our content is on Instagram or the Gastronomad.net page, we're combining art, commerce and commentary with pretty much everything we do.
