...finally, not my own!
I've been collecting all of these little tidbits lately and haven't had a minute to post so here ya are. I guess for the next couple of weeks actually I will be burping up bits and pieces from my travels which I have been meaning to get up and haven't.
For starters,this really breaks my heart. I suppose there was a good chance that this might not have ended well but still, really, really sad.
Last 2nd Sat I saw some great stuff that again, been meaning to post etc, etc.
Little Peepholes by Sean Christopher was also awesome! I was a little spacey this past 2nd Sat so I didn't catch if he was from Sac or not. Beautiful work none the less. Both pieces were at A Bitchin' Space.
Breaking news the Yale abort-o-rama scandal is a hoax! Za zing!
Okay first there was the bludgeoner at SFAI and now this:
I gotta say I'm really getting tired of this shit. Not that anything is gonna happen if I put my foot down but still. Apparently Guillermo Vargas “Habacuc" will be starving a dog to death in a gallery for the upcoming CentroAmerican Bienal in Honduras. The above images are from the first time he pulled this off. I think a good way to end this piece would have been for another performance artist to enter the gallery and pop “Habacuc" in the face and feed the dog. I also kinda can't stand the shiftless gallery goers enjoying refreshments while this dog is supposedly dying. Yes, I know what the artist is trying to say and I get it on an the intellectual level which it is intended but it still stinks. In the long run if it got a wave of people to actually pay attention to dogs dying on the street the way they would in the gallery then mission accomplished but the general populace doesn't typically attend gallery openings of this sort see AIDS:Cultural Analysis/Cultural Activism by Douglas Crimp in reference to fine art as political action. In short just feed the fuckin' dog!
Lastly, LUCY PULS IS COMING! This Wed April 23rd at 7pm in Mariposa Room 1001. Be there!!!!!
