curating and crating

October 22nd, 2011

i like that whenever i write “curating” spellcheck asks if i mean “crating”

Photobucket
this post has two fun events, two photographers, and at least a little bit of art i promise

Photobucket
BLORP today was the last day of Evan Gruzis’ exhibition and a few hours after the show closed Jorge had everything magically off the walls and packed and labeled, WOW

Photobucket
it’s 1AM and i just finished two 3000 word articles and the gallery is empty!

Photobucket
i am really impressed

Photobucket
ha ha look at these crazy boots she owns

Photobucket
they go with her new look
cargo cords and baby tee

(we were stoned)

Photobucket
the only time i like this thing is when it rains and you can see Kenny underneath :)

Photobucket
has it been raining a lot? i have been sitting at my computer for what feels like five days straight and dont know

Photobucket
back to this thing!
Evan made this for our True Religion dinner they threw to celebrate him

Photobucket
Fat Radish chefs in Skinny Hallway

Photobucket
yay fancy!

Photobucket
yay!!!!
true religion showing HOLE how to throw it fancy

Photobucket
totalyl into it

Photobucket
i love fat radish food but i must say i think all dishes have hidden beets….

Photobucket
john got excited to play music so jon got excited to find our basement fog machines

Photobucket
teddy, well, he’s just excited

Photobucket
am i psychologically disturbed because i think it is poignant that all fancy dinners just end up like this?

Photobucket
no im ok

Photobucket
some new little galaxies on the wall

Photobucket
now that show is over we all get to try on fun geisha wig

Photobucket
ha!

Photobucket
fabiola got some sexy shoes at INA and got me the funnest big silk dress and cashmere glove thingies!

Photobucket
so i had nice outfit for our big poetry night

Photobucket
was it last night?? my brain hurts
this is Jeru the Damaga

Photobucket
did i spell that right?
if not i am EXTRA embarrassed

Photobucket
look its lance!

Photobucket
look poetry faces

Photobucket
look its Pablo Lopez!
you dont remember because it was before i kept blog but Pablo was my roomate back in like 2003 with his then boyfriend named Nono, best name ever, and i think Dylan Walker was around then too?
wow awesome

Photobucket
Pablo looks like he is from another decade, huh?

Photobucket
one poem was a song and it was good

Photobucket
Mikey David Quattlebaum

Photobucket
i remember when mikey first came to new york he and i had a long kinda jittery conversation about “putting yourself out there” and “contributing to the downtown community” and it is such a thrill to see him doing it

Photobucket
the Hole’s own Derrick Harden

Photobucket
i like that he couldnt quite remember his poem
it took some of the fussy seriousness out of things
poems can make me nervous
and embarrassed
im sure you feel that way too

Photobucket
tim was so embarrassed by poetry he put his hood on and then after a while just had to leave
ha ha tim!

Photobucket
the place was packed
poetry!
who knew??

Photobucket
stefan knew
he organized the night

Photobucket
his poem was insane
it was kinda like a long rant about the art world in all its failings and an exhortation to young artists to put more poetry and depth into their work
but it was crazy. i think he made fun of deitch? and when he said “art dealers in high heels and coke deals” or something, i felt bad that i had worn platform wedges to the party :)

Photobucket
Rene Ricard was next and last

Photobucket
i should have gotten video i hope someone did
he just read notes jotted in a notebook

Photobucket
mini poems
straightforward and fun and gleeful and strange

Photobucket
he was a friend of Dash’s and Dash’s gleefulness i guess it was, well, i can see where he got it, i can see why they liked each other so much

Photobucket
one poem was like
“joe,
sober 26 years
congratulations, joe!”

Photobucket
but the way he said it!

Photobucket
then i ate weird spaghetti with leaves

Photobucket
i probably should have ordered this because full of pasta i went home and fell instantly to sleep and missed Spencer’s friday party which is always fun and wah-wah i am such a fucking loser sometimes

Photobucket
clown cab

Photobucket
today
jeez looks like all i did was eat Pinkberry

Photobucket
with john holland

Photobucket
and let him try out my hair

Photobucket
just when you thought this blog had no art!
eric cahan took photos at the dinner and let me upload them and i got some fun presents from his memory card

Photobucket
i dont know what this is but i like it

Photobucket

    Drove from Montreal to NY on Sat. to catch the GESAFFELSTEIN set. The next morning I stopped at THE HOLE to say hi to you guys but closed. I had nothing to do so I bought flowers and left them at 57 Great Jones. Drove back to Montreal.
