Bertie got dressed up
we had a great time
i wanted to say something during the everyone say something period but what everyone else said was so perfect and made me teary and no way i would ever speak in public while teary

i had wanted to tell everyone the story of how Ben and Christina met because it is so happy making
whatever the opposite of disappointment is!

The short version is that Christina came into Ben Jones’ solo show at Deitch Projects in Feb of ’08 and told me that she loved the art so much, it spoke to her in some deep way, that she wanted to go on a date with whoever made it

i said what if it was made my a little old lady? what if it was made by a deformed troll? she was undeterred

 photo IMG_3167_zps7ed147c3.jpg
i think what it is is that so many artists make work not literally to attract a date but to put something of themselves out there so that someone might see it and feel them and be drawn to them, and then to have that happen so literally is so moving to me
