i am sooooo sorry that i seem to have disappeared for a month
it is not true, i am fine, i just had my camera kinda break and then lost and then didnt get a new one forever
i think this is the first time maybe since 2006 that i went a month with no camera and no blog
i feel really funny that i don’t feel that funny about it
something seems to be changing…
The Hole did our usual “miami blowout” which maybe you saw on my twitter or facebook in camera photos, working too hard to take any photos!
actually i DID take lots of photos leading up to it then lost my camera the night of our A$AP Rocky concert with Playboy
WAY too much fun that night actually
lemme see if i can’t dig up some miami photos from our various photographers
omg its thanksgiving?
i’m apparently still home in DC
before fall fell
if i remember it was pretty fun
parents very old but healthy and happy to see us!
they get to see me again in two days
omg this fat ass dog
i wonder if the dog will have exploded by the time Christmas rolls around
i on the other hand got lots of exercise and am very skinny at the moment
i think from having flu for a week but let’s say exercise instead
def not from Pines of Rome
oldest italian place in Bethesda with great spaghetti and meatballs
my dad had three sons before he met my mom and had me and my brother
this is mark and curt, they must be almost 60 by now! wow!
where were we
ugh the photos are all jumbebutted together
for example here is a lovely scott reeder painting he sent for our Villa Vecchia project but where is the Villa Vecchia project??
here is our NADA booth, inexplicably photographed during a moment of disarray!
we had a lovelllly new lola, a great holton and some new matthew stone
we also had new kadar works that were seriosuly TOXIC Lookin! in a great way!
really top level one!
sold to a great new home
these new folding floor works were fantastic
they fit just about anywhere, for you space-conscious collectors
here are some photos from the villa project
i got to curate contemporary works for this very ornate 1920s villa
great Lola portrait of her boyfriend, lots of psychological tension i think!
the show after much hem and haw was called FRESH BASEL hahaha
it’s funny cuz some of the very not nice idiots i had to work with on this thing actually DID pronounce Art Basel “art basil” omg
great new Holton
new Matthew Stone engravings in the Ballroom
Evan and Kembra in hallway
Richard Prince and other works from “the playmate as fine art” feature in Playboy Magazine next issue (the one with Paz de la Huerta interviewed by Jeffrey Deitch on cover aaaa!)
jesse our on site plein aire painter!
helped make the show go up too, as you know if you know jesse
jill magid neon from playboy collection
ooh! someone took opening photos!
me and Victoria from House of the Nobleman
they contributed some amazing works by Oakes Twins to the exhibition
she also had awesome party saturday that was one of the nights i spent in bed with flu
my table at the Holton dinner was the funnest one
ann schaffer and ellen schweber and their husbands were a riot!
arthur roger gallery in new orleans co-hosted the dinner with us and brought a great crowd from down south!
yay it went so good!
everyone arriving on yachts, so glamorous
what am i doin
holton’s brother Sandy with his wife who is very nice Elan
did you see the last copy of Elle she and i are both in?
her feature is her in all these different art outfits you would wear while being an art advisor, really funny!
the man of the hour
aw i love this!
this is jesse with our elusive host Michael Saylor who owns the villa and wanted to have art projects there during basel. this photo makes me happy
all these photos make me happy
you don’t know HOW HORRIBLE this project was behind the scenes, still dealing with the fallout, actually
but to the public it was this magical special hidden art show and events that all the guests felt so special to be included in, and we felt special to get to put on
people need to remember that
holton very generously let us have anotehr glimpse at how he works
this time for a giant pour, almost 20ft!
Kristy Leibowitz shot all these
this photo getting artsy! love it
aaaa it’s emerald!
playboy generously (and anonymously) supported this event and it was super cool of them to be so secretive and behind the scenes about it. they launched Neville Wakefield as their new art curator and he was there with his buddies, watchin the paint flow!
holton could make a fantastic line of swimwear if he were ever so inclined dont you think??
have to make new post
guess i did have a lot of photos, or rather kristy leibowitz had a lot of photos built up!
