Over Memorial Day weekend we saw the Dan Graham: Beyond exhibit at
MOCA Los Angeles. This morning I am happy to learn the show arrives to the Whitney later this month: opening June 25, 2009.
Its a powerful show with work that is inclusive and displacing all at once. My favorite pieces in this retrospective are the transparent, two-way mirrored glass installations. Viewers see reflections of themselves and their surrounds as well as views through the glass. The audience becomes part of the sculpture.

Last month I got a lovely Jorge Colombo print, iSketch098, through 20×200. So I was thrilled to see this week’s cover of The New Yorker featuring a Jorge Colombo iSketch cityscape. Looks amazing.

Thanks marichelle for the heads up on michele maule’s work. I think I’ll put this in my office.
The Dorothy Parker Society is hosting The Dreamland Gala fundraiser on Sunday, May 24 with Michael Arenella and his 12-piece Dreamland Orchestra. Come out in vintage clothes for a great night of music in Carroll Gardens to support Parkerfest 2009.
The speakeasy-themed gala will be held at the Green Building, a 19th-century warehouse nestled along the banks of the Gowanus Canal, at 450 Union Street in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn.
Alison Mosshart kicked ass with her spitting, smoking and singing. Jamie Hince really kicked ass- actually roughed up an idiot audience member who crawled on stage. I heart The KIlls.
