Yeah, it's gotten shitty reviews, but I had to check out the SKIN FRUIT show at The New Museum, if only to check out the huge Pazuzu statue (of Exorcist fame?) by Roberto Cuoghi. Worth the price of admission to me, so I won't ruin it for you with a pic. Sure, the show is a giant mash-up of about 50 artists on 4 floors, but it's got some very interesting things going on in it. A live Jesus hanging on a cross and JFK in a coffin, along with your Koons(who curated), Princes, and Shermans. The woman singing on one floor was an interesting touch as well. Alot of controversy over the fact that this is the collection of zillionaire Dakis Joannou, who is also a trustee in the New Museum, and this show might increase the value of his stuff. Who gives a fuck? Don't hate the player, hate the art game.
I finally bumped into one of my all-time favorite artists the other day on 6th ave...Glen Friedman. Complete pleasure having a brief chat with the legendary photographer about his blog. Really made my day. If you are in the dark about all this, Please check his stuff out HERE!. Thank me when you see me.
Books & Books on Lincoln in Miami has a great layout and vibe. Just
needs a little more in the art books department and it would be
perfecto. I think they have a cafe they run also, which seems to be
one of the few with no BASS PUMPING. Enjoy the silence sometimes.
