happy holidays everyone!
i may not post blog for a bit so enjoy this big old pile slowly
Kembra and EV Day signing their sold Giverny print
Lola and her friend installing
stretching kadar’s new piece
sam moyer and her huge panels
look at this appealing expanse of whiteness!
we have GREY AREA pop up shop in our shop for the holidays check out all this amazing stuff!
eddie martinez pants wow!
hey hey i didnt know about this!
damn my feat of tank tops!
check it out!
and taylor’s amazing tree of course
not afraid to get her hands dirty
i only had a sec to snap a few crowd photos
there are some pretty powerful people in this shot
i thanked courtney for coming and introduced myself as the gallery owner and she said “what’s the gallery called’ and i said “the hole” and she walked away 🙂
lucien hosted some of us the back for a wee dinner
afterparty at Red Egg
sam moyer is #1 party animal
we had a ton of fun dancing all night i dont know if you can see from the pictures
until the wee hours
may and i spent the whole next day doing absolutely nothing
eating ice cream
watching beverly hills housewives something show
the next night we had a dinner party at May’s
Jules came out!
it’s not a party until someone puts a lampshade on their head
we finally got out of the house to go see Maurizio Cattelan at the guggenheim
why do i take photos of this stuff
the craziness of taking your oevre and making a retrospectalier out of it totally trumped the disappointment of seeing some of these works in a non-ideal way
many of these works were never shown in america, just in books
and it would have been cool to experience them as intended
the pope on a huge red carpet with the broken skylight above
or this peeker peekin outta a real floor
the meganess of this contraption
the forced cournterclockwise viewing POV
i mean these guys are supposed to be leaned up in a corner side by side so they look like the twin towers, right?
someohow that didnt bother me
retiring from art or not, displaying all these works in this… self-castrating way was really bold and appropriate and challenging and great
it makes great sense that an artist who turned galleryship and art viewing on its head would display his life’s work in a way that made everyone all panties in a bunch
this is actually in raymond pettibon’s studio
i wont spill any beans of any kind as i was a guest there
or at least i wont spill any of the art beans there
(there were cool piles of drawings everywhere!)
we made a painting
ah sad christmas alone for kathy, no fun holiday party invites, totally post partum sad-ish about big shows and big openings, now like everything in the past
i am not crabby about this show because it looks amazing
professional installs of both after the new year!
