Art Walk at Brewery

dada3.pngEleven a.m. to six p.m. Saturday and Sunday April 12 and 13. Might be fun. Nothing will beat the time they had DADA there but it's probably better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.


Man Ray Afternoon

manraybutt.pngFinally went to the Getty museum today. Been there three times previously without actually going in like a tourist. My fav was the Getty Underground exhibition.

Well, today my daughter took me up the hill. It was much as I expected. Hagen Daas ice cream bars $3.95 a piece. We asked one of the guards what the hot deal was--I got tired of walking pretty quick, and it seemed like it was all stuff that I'd seen before at the Malibu museum. The guard suggested the west gallery. The one with all the impressionist and surrealist stuff. I concurred and we scurried over.

All stuff I had seen before. The Van Gogh was under glass this time. There was a Picasso under glass as well. I don't understand why they didn't have more guards around. There was only one in a room full of marvelous impressionist paintings. It was making me paranoid. There were a lot of people in there. Kids messing with the name card on the Van Gogh--no wonder they have it under glass.

My daughter pointed out to me a woman that had her zipper down. Maybe she thought I would be interested. Ha. We were both too embarassed to tell her. I told one of the guards and he ran over to her as if she were getting ready to barf blue paint on some art work. Guess he was pretty bored.

My favorite object this time was a picture of some chick's ass taken by Man Ray in 1930. Really nice. The title card next to it mentioned that it had been pretty controversial back in the day. Looked like a nice big peach.


Premature Ejaculation

artfart.pngI have had this art post brewing. I got some things I want to say about my interaction and thinking about art--since that's been happening recently, and then I saw this documentary film about the art of Alan Goldworthy "Rivers and Tides: Andy Goldsworthy Working With Time".

The ideas in the movie kind of folded into what I had been thinking about. It's still brewing though and I don't feel like I'm ready to write about it yet, but then it occurred to me that the movie isn't going to be playing there all that much longer (it's at the Nuart) and I want everybody to go and check it out. If you're interested in art anyway, go and see it. It's a good movie. Maybe I can find a review that does it justice. I'll link it at the below. If you have any interest in art I recommend looking into this film. I'm really glad I saw it. I'll have some more to say about art later when my brain constipation lets up.

Rivers and Tides


Warhol, Twiggie, Wiggy

krishna (2k image)Got down to the museum only to find that the Warhol exhibit wasn't free. Lame ass bummer. Anyway. It was just soup cans. 12 bucks for soup cans.

Seeing the skyline from Pershing Square made it worth the trip. It really is quite the simple pleasure to ride the train.

Hooked up with Michael and we shuttled over to the Geffen Contemporary. Interesting stuff. Mostly I just got a kick out of watching the people.

Felt a little descriminated against as I came in. The woman in front of me had a purse large enough to hold the backpack that they asked me to check. Guess I look more the type that might have a spraycan, or be prepared to vomit paint... damn right, think I won't?

I got one of the guards wound up a bit. He took us around to see an exhibit that consisted of a gray piece of cardboard on a gray painted floor. The title was "gray on gray". The guard laughed and told us that the artist got $100,000 for the piece.

After the Geffen we went down to the loft district where we ran into George. He invited us up to his space above the now defunct Al's Bar. The American Hotel--wow, that's an interesting place. The door to George's apartment looks more like the door to a storage space and the room behind it is about the size of one. In addition to the typical knob and deadbolt locks he's got a combo lock at the bottom of the door. He's been living there since at least the 80's when it was a little more knarly. He got weird when he thought I was trying to see his combo. LOL--I just never actually seen anybody stoop down to open a combo lock on their front door. Had to get a better look.Yeah, I'm gonna sneak around in the American Hotel so I can work out the other numbers...

The paintings he showed us were not bad. Maybe some of the cooler paintings that we saw today. I can see now why Twiggy Ramirez owns one of them. I know--yeah right. That's what I thought when George told me to check out MTV. He said I'd be able to see some of his art hanging on the wall at Twiggie's house. A week later my daughter called to tell me that she had seen George on MTV in Twiggie's house. LOL.
