Artist Amalia Ulman Will Become a Model-for-Hire in a New Exhibition Held in a Very Exotic, Very Secret Location: the Dark Web

New artworks by six contemporary artists, including Amalia Ulman, David Horvitz, and Joshua Citarella, are going onto the dark web next month as part of “Time Out of Joint,” a new exhibition curated by New York-based artistic partners Eva and Franco Mattes.

The show, which is part of the online-only Yerevan Biennial, can only be accessed through a special browser. 

Worried about web safety? As far as internet activities go, getting on the dark web is about as safe as surfing Amazon (perhaps even more so, many would argue). But the location is sure to scare some people—and that’s the point. 

“One of the goals of this show is to bring people to a place they are not familiar with—even if it’s just one click away,” Eva and Franco Mattes tell Artnet News over email.

In Paris? You’ll Want To Check Out Chanel’s New Fashion Manifesto Exhibition

All these 110 years later after Gabrielle Chanel created her eponymous label Chanel, what’s not to love? Chanel has gone from challenge to strength under Gabrielle and and the late Karl Lagerfeld. Gabrielle was a strong woman who had a difficult upbringing and was challenged as she forged ahead to design and create fashion and beauty products. And as a visionary designer, she imagined a new allure for the fashion industry. She wanted and did revolutionize fashion, not just with clothing but with her iconic perfumes, accessories, beauty and jewelry creations. She once said “in order to be irreplaceable one must always be different,” and different she was.
