    i guess, but given the title of the event; "all in the present must be transformed," you get the impression that I was supposed to take more away from the event than a bunch of stuff I had already seen independent from each other. I'm a big fan of beuys so I was happy to see his work again, but the parallels between their work didn't really extend beyond the surface for me.

    EDIT: and the Beuys show in Berlin at Harburger Banhof was better in my opinion.

    well they both work with gloppy stuff sometimes.

    I will admit to ignorance: I'd never heard of Barney and had only very limited exposure to Beuys prior to seeing that exhibit. So it was fun for me. Beuys > Barney, agreed.

    You know, I have to admit, I like some of Barney's stuff. I thought the Cremaster stuff was interesting, often boring and ridiculous, but there were some fantastic moments. At a minimum, the guy puts together some incredibly well polished exhibits (the Drawing Restraint exhibit, 7 and 8 in particular, at SF MOMA). He needs to get off of his own ego though.

    ya, I still need to throw up pictures from tunisia and the sahara. That was the highlight for me. Are you in LA? how do you like it so far? I'm really jealous, I missed OR by a couple weeks here. Ah well, next time...

    you know, i'm not a big LA fan... saying that kind of quietly. hope the transition has gone, and will continue to go, smoothly.

    I'm gonna take a nap, jet lag is still killing me.

    So awesome. The place that used to just be a p.i.n.g pong table that you could rent out has changed again. So fucking cool, what a perfect idea for a date.

    At the fair grounds in Coasta Misery, they have an inflatable screen that they put up and do a drive-in movie. It's awesome. We can bring our 2 year old to movies that Jim and I actually want to see and she just falls asleep in the backseat.

    Oh, and why is it p.i.n.g?

    Beuys and Barney both really don't do it for me. In the world of big art egos, they pretty much win for constructing entire fictitious realities circling around their created personae. I guess Barney is slightly more palatable just because of the sheer craftsmanship of his work. And Beuys gets a certain level of props just because he did it first. And some of his work dealing with issues of nationalism is more engaging. But still, ugh.

    And I want to go on a date to that drive-in theater so much. That's bad ass.

    i agree for the most part. I think Beuys gets some credit for integrating mythologies that have serious basis in reality. A lot of his work explores what reminds me of the paradox of history that is explored in Umberto Eco's "Foucault's Pendulum." For whatever that is worth...

    The ego kills a lot of it, because I find myself looking for reasons to hate them while experiencing the work.
