what is in a name?
and there you have it
i cant copy all the things that he said during the concert but it was pretty interesting stuff and made me think more about this guy as an artist and the power of mainstream success and the art world etc etc
i wonder what “flirt gills” were
and that is it for now I suppose as it’s Sunday and I made all the checks I needed to make and met all the people and received the Devendra drop off and emailed the press the images and my to do list now just includes going to eat dinner somewhere nice
did you know that when i was in college me and Laura Tepper convinved the administration to give us a space to create a student art galery
and we called it AREA
so the first gallery i ever owned was called AREA
this really made it worth it to me, i got to install and show this historic artwork in my gallery
this was in my art history book in college, now it is on my wee gallery wall SIGH!
you know it is from that nazi dude slogan when i hear the word culture i unholster my gun or whatever, ya?
aurel wanted to do the show in a space she rented so she coudl avoid the pressures or expectations of gallery drama
whereas area wanted to do their show in my space so they could exploit the pressures and expectations of galery drama
and fucking drama-d the shit outta my life for ten days and were out
ok so with almost a thousand photos to upload and post since last blog i’m not sure how much is even interesting anymore
i remember how small the elevator at the Hotel Beaumarchais was
and I suppose I am still interested in it
“Get Money” would actually be a good song to play in the background for art fair postings esp this silver guy what is his name argh i just don’t care
it’s not ryan sullivan it’s
it’s on the tip of my tongue
jacob kassay! got it not dead yet still tickin up there
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
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 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
also i don’t like giving the sense that i am at all disappointed in anything going on at the gallery because that is all so great and positive and happy making especially with our two new shows that opened
i am so low drama, it takes a lot for me to get angry, i am not a gossip, i go very far out of my way to avoid confrontation or problems, i am miserable unless everyone is happy and getting along, if someone is mad at me i ruminate about it and can’t sleep and do everything possible to smooth the situation over.
joe insists he just “takes life as it comes” with no expectation from others but how long can you interact with someone before some sort of expectation is created, not from promises just from actions?
[[REDACTED]] there is something immoral to all relationships it seems, any time you demean yourself to approach someone else, humiliate yourself for them, insult them by liking, ask for someone else’s anything, need else to be happy, to thrive, to not hate the world, immoral to intrude upon them with your affection [[REDACTED]]
I like to tell the puppy that it is made out of puppies
but i am going to start wearing a sign around my neck that just says
this is a six month old male pomeranian puppy who will probably grow bigger and is from a shelter in oklahoma and looks like a bear and yes you may take a photo
