even though i’m on my deathbed, i made it out last night to renwick gallery for jacob dyrenforth’s show titled “monument to the new cult of sex and anarchy”. all i’ll say is that i was really blown away by the work, and was imagining every single piece in my home. if i can’t have it all, maybe just one?

if you are in new york, please check it out. it’s up until march 7.

i’ll be in miami for a much-needed mini-vacation during art basel (12|4|08-12|7|08), and one of the few things i’m making a priority (besides sun) is checking out this jose davila installation for renwick gallery. it will be at art positions, which is off the main site, on the beach front. art positions gives 20 young galleries a shipping container to showcase their artist(s). in davila and renwick’s case, the container is the art. i’ve heard a lot about it from my friend, christine, who manages the gallery, and can’t wait to see it in person. i’m not well-versed in art in any way, but i think from this image, it looks like perfection.

if you are around, please come by.
