maria

Photobucket
i really wanted to do this show for many reasons

Photobucket
a big part of jeffrey’s program was about connecting the awesome underground energy of the 80s with the very similar and exciting art moment we are in and the underground artists working today

Photobucket
so like Haring Basquiat even Clemente and Schnabel things he did
the stephen sprouse show
debbie harry
alan vega

Photobucket
he wanted to relate them to the awesome people crossing over from music to art, graffiti to art, being interdisciplinary, making the downtown scene exciting again

Photobucket
that urge is where the Live Through This book came from in 2005

Photobucket
his essay LIVE THE ART is really good at articulating the similarities he sees between his experiences in the 80s (when he was my age) and then what i have been connecting with now

Photobucket
so it was really natural for me wanting to highlight this connection to actually just PAIR TWO ARTISTS together and do a collaborative show

Photobucket
so people can see the links and connections and also see the differences and innovations
on both sides

Photobucket
kenny and drd met down in miami in 2004 at that big show we did

Photobucket
it was my first year going down to miami and i was “in charge” of doing a dearraindrop show in a craig robbins building in the design district

Photobucket
the day before i got down there Billy from DRD backed a scissor lift through a 15 foot plate glass window there

Photobucket
the situation continued to be difficult throughout the show
someone had booked drd at the shittiest scariest hotel i have ever seen
someone left a case of booze at the space that i consistenly drank while staffing the space

Photobucket
i wasn’t the responsible business woman then that i am now :)

Photobucket
i made out with many interesting people that year tho

Photobucket
so many people dressed up last night yay!!!!
and one of these people is related to Joe!

Photobucket
