Takes a Selfie
By Clint Margrave
I’m not surprised to find him
in the underground,
but I am surprised to find him
He sits across from me
on the metro
in shorts and tennis shoes,
taking a selfie.
I want to ask him what he’s doing here.
Too much sun
for so much beard.
as a writer of the dispossessed,
the clinically insane, the suicidal,
it just might be the place.
Take It Easy
By JOHN TOTTENHAM
I’ve never been to Heaven,
but I’ve been to Oklahoma.
Played For The Good Times
fifty times in a row,
then pissed on the jukebox.
Smeared my blood
against a white picket fence,
and left town.

Fans of Los Angeles’ Craft Contemporary museum will enjoy Above & Below at Shoshana Wayne Gallery. The exhibition features twelve artists working in textile art, ranging from ethnic craft traditions to the wildly unconventional.
The show marks the Los Angeles debuts of Madame Moreau and Yveline Tropéa. Moreau anchors the traditional end of craft in the exhibition with Henry Christoph flag, a beaded ceremonial vodou banner depicting Haiti’s revolutionary war hero and king. Tropéa’s canvases too are covered in beading, illustrating abstracted people and creatures that suggest folklore influences. The French artist lives part-time in Burkina Faso where she has been influenced by Yoruba beading, and where she hires and trains women–disenfranchised kidnapping survivors of Boko Haram–as beaders. Similarly, Gil Yefman felted a bedspread size wall hanging in the show with Kuchinate, a craft collective of African women refugees in Israel.

Artillery is an American contemporary art magazine based in Los Angeles. Features and exhibition reviews are often L.A. centric, yet increasingly dedicated to coverage of the arts worldwide, with contributors based in New York, San Francisco, Dallas, Berlin and London. The bi-monthly publication is available in both print and web editions. The print version is distributed and for sale via subscription and can also be found in bookstores, museum shops, art galleries and other locations. Print circulation is currently at about 50,000 with a readership of about 35,000. Artillery also hosts public events such as live debates, poetry readings and book signings in major cities as well as at art fairs.
History and profile
Artillery was co-founded in 2006 by former LA Weekly editorial staff members Tulsa Kinney and Charles Rappleye as an alternative to "the stodgy, art-mag paradigm"—as editor-in-chief Kinney put it in the inaugural issue—slyly referencing the often academic "artspeak" generated by gallery press releases and prevalent in widely circulated arts publications such as Art in America and Artforum.
To date the single most widely read Artillery feature article, which published in January 2011, turned out to be the last interview conducted with international art star Mike Kelley before the artist committed suicide that same month. The feature, written by Kinney, revealed the depths of the artist's depression and his apparent disenchantment with.the commercial art world.
