AUTO DICKS

June 29th, 2012

facebook provides me with so much: blog titles, todd levin explaining the drama in LA, a deluded sense of importance, stalking ex boyfriends
sigh!

Photobucket
why can’t the days feel like the nights
in the summer in the city
in the summer in the city

Photobucket
my new favourite writer DINK :)

Photobucket
my Dartmouth friend Hillary is doing this

Photobucket
i might be going to this in a minute

Photobucket
some Rick Owens clothes arrived for Kembra and we all tried to figure out how to put them on

Photobucket
haha “fashion”
that means “which way is up” or “where does my arm go?”
this UTAH truck is great all these guys want to hate, fuck guys

Photobucket
AUTO DICKS

Photobucket
haha

Photobucket
so there was this thing Stefania Pia organized in that school thing called JAMBOREE with all these people with rooms
this is the Adam Green Room

Photobucket
these paintings are fantastic!

Photobucket
grey area tankinis

Photobucket
miss lilies

Photobucket
never not a new york thing ing

Photobucket
haha im an idiot i forgot to take a photo bfore camera died of our own Joe Grillo room with new Dearrinadrop clothes that were awesome

Photobucket
Maurizio Cattelan

Photobucket
Ella something
just opened at Gavin Brown last night i think!

Photobucket
the days have become a bit blurred
i am stuck in some kind of sludge
a laziness, an ennui, a sleep all day-ness

Photobucket
Shinique Smith awesome

Photobucket
Misaki in the fart room

Photobucket
when really what i want is to be active and dynamic and check all the things off the list now that i have time and space to achieve them in the lazy summer

Photobucket
im just so hot n tired

Photobucket
this is the Bianca Cassady opening at Cheim and Reed

Photobucket
these wee things looked kinda like the deitch works
(i dont mind if i never see a small collage on old paper again)

Photobucket
but these larger pieces were so exquisitely limned, as siobbahn texted me, and so lovely and strange
plus there were cock bouquets

Photobucket
cock salon?

Photobucket
the dinner was at either Cheim or Reed’s and was so pretty

Photobucket
is this NYC?

Photobucket
coulda fooled us

Photobucket
good morning~

Photobucket
good morning dumpster juice

Photobucket
so i thought i would try to do something relevant and post about this crazy LA MOCA shakeup drama
where Paul Shimmel either left or was fired and now Jeffrey will be the main curator there
THIS

Photobucket
i chose eric yahnker to illustrate my thoughts as he is a subtle, subtle thinker
OR THAT

Photobucket
and may just be a bit bolder than me!
HERE TOO

Photobucket
i have no particular thoughts about Schimmel leaving other than he is a legendary curator who has done so many great REVISIONIST things for the menagerie of art people in LA and he seems just great to me!

Photobucket
it’s more that people seem sad that Jeffrey will get to curate things now
THIS WHICH SEEMS TO THINK JEFFREY CURATED THE NEST SHOW AND WILL THUSLY FILL THE MOCA WITH PEE AND YELLOW PAGES (IT WAS ME)

Photobucket
many people just don’t get jeffrey and will never get jeffrey (these people are usually sad people that have problems connecting with others and fear their genitals and their fellow man hahaha just kidding)
and will forever think him “unserious”

Photobucket
speaking of unserious i apologize if i led anyone to believe that my ex taking photos of my tits was anything other than strictly platonic photo play with an ex-boyfriend

Photobucket
but this notion of “unserious” really drives me up the wall as some ignorant artists and shallow dealers and closed-minded collectors even have passed me over after labeling me the same thing

Photobucket
i think these people just don’t understand what it means to care about art and life together, to care about art in a broader cultural arena as opposed to a small closed-off elite thing, to care about “changing the world” and “changing people’s lives” in this really honest and risky and embarrassing maybe way

Photobucket
Jeffrey wants to change culture and to broaden the audience of art. He wants contemporary art to reach everyone, not just the financial or cultural elite or the academic elite, but average people. And knowing him for years I know he means it, and I know what he has sacrificed to pursue this personal commitment, this intellectual and emotional mandate

Photobucket
I know what I have sacrificed, too, in terms of my personal life and at times my professional life
but i don’t mean to get all preachy

Photobucket
as someone who has willfully descended from the upper echelons of higher thinking and stratospheric art theory to try to LIVE and EXPERIENCE and COMMUNICATE effectively and to a broad audience, I know how vilified you can be by the intellectual set who resent your trying to speak a bigger language

Photobucket
i’m out of images in my photobucket so i’ll just say i hope everyone tries to not be blinded by their bangs and tries to see the bigger picture
MORE ERIC YANKER HERE, AND AT THE HOLE THIS SEPTEMBER!

    Love you Kathy. You are a general for a generation that is craving art in every way one could imagine. let the haters hate, they’ll be kissing your ass next year and many years to come. Long live the hole.

    Great, great post.
    Now I’m all fired up!

  • george eliot

    so awesome, very real.

    Only those who know the supremacy of the intellectual life—the life which has a seed of ennobling thought and purpose within—can understand the grief of one who falls from that serene activity into the absorbing soul-wasting struggle with worldly annoyances.

    I am not impressed by anything I cannot touch !!!

  • El Gato

    Best not to dwell on these issues too heavily since we were not in the room with the decision makers when the cord was proposed to be cut.
    Everyone has their time and ART is Flux. Jeffery will endure and move in a positive direction as he always has.
    So we will surely follow.Nice post.

    Just read this
    and I couldn’t agree more with

    “i think these people just don’t understand what it means to care about art and life together, to care about art in a broader cultural arena as opposed to a small closed-off elite thing, to care about “changing the world” and “changing people’s lives” in this really honest and risky and embarrassing maybe way”
