Is it a needle protruding from your arm? How about a giant turd on top of your skull for being such a shit head? Ahhh...even better...just a big capital "L" on your forehead so everyone knows everything about you when they see you coming, and they don't waste their time.
I'd rather not...after all, he spent a couple pages of a thread talking shit about me before I even knew the thread existed. I like to know when people are talking shit...even if they're too much of a coward to let me know when it happens.
Does that mean you're going to continue with battling him in other threads? I'm just asking because then I'll put you on ignore now rather than waiting.
I'm not saying you're in the wrong (I generally agree with what you've had to say and have much respect your profession) but when you argue that seriously with an idiot it and take things that seriously everything is tainted.
I don't think I'm hosting a 2016 collaborative playlist.
Egh...I'm not even sure. Most likely I'll let go of it soon...but the whole thing where he said he wished kids would start shooting teachers, and then calling for me specifically to be shot (in more than one post)...really not cool. Also uncool is insinuating that I sleep with my students. That's some real career-ender type shit, and I take it pretty seriously...even though he IS a fucking moron. But I guess I'll leave it this way...I'll address the things he says directly and try not to START shit in other threads from here on out. Gonna be hard to resist though I gotta say...but I'll do it for the folks here that I still respect.
KEEP YOUR PETTY "MY DICK IS BIGGER" BULLSHIT OUT OF MY ART THREAD. IF YOU CAN'T SAY IT WITH ART, IT GOES SOMEWHERE ELSE.
Relax Hannah...I explained it a couple hours ago...I'm over it now.
Good news on the art front though...I'm in negotiations to have some of my stuff up in a gallery in the Rey Street area (in San Diego it's the place for artists to be seen right now). I'll keep ya'll posted.
This is possibly my favorite LACMA exhibit ever. The ground floor has his large-scale light installations, including a lot of iconic stuff that doesn't often travel from private collections and also a bunch of stuff on loan from the Dia Foundation (which makes sense because LACMA's new director used to be at Dia). The upper level is more surprising small-scale sketches where you see him working through his concepts, and even some fairly traditional drypoints.
2) Wack Feminist Art exhibit at MOCA at the Geffen Contemporary.
This is an important survey of art relating to the feminist movement of the 1960s forward. Although it's heavily weighted to American work, it does a good job of not over-privileging the biggies like Louise Bourgeois, Ana Mendieta and Cindy Sherman (although they are represented). MOCA's curatorial aversion to didacticism is once again present with a near complete lack of wall text of explanation for any of the works, which may be a problem for visitors who aren't already familiar with the art being exhibited, although MOCA's docents are a good alternative. The exhibition catalog is also exemplary. Like the Flavin show, this show will also be traveling nation-wide I believe, and is worth checking out if it comes to your city.
3) Richard Tuttle exhibit at MOCA Grand Avenue.
This is a smaller survey of Tuttle's important works throughout his career. Although his larger minimalist sculpture is represented, the exhibit focuses on his more delicate ephemera including sculptures and drawings. These sorts of things tend to be hard to exhibit, and MOCA does an okay job, but they don't really do justice to his artists' books and printed work which are my favorite part of Tuttle's oeuvre. I liked this show well enough, but I actually found the other current exhibit up at MOCA Grand Avenue, on handmade aesthetic specifically in Latin American artists, to be more compelling with its mixture of playful materials like bouncy balls, carved lipstick and cut-up paper currency.
4) Culver City Art Walk
is happening this Saturday, noon to 8pm. 40-some local galleries are opening their doors to the public. Of those, the big-hitters include Blum & Poe (current exhibit up is Hirsch Perlman who does a strange combination of black and white seascape photography and large-scale silkscreens of cats), LAXART (showing upcoming LA-artist Vincent Johnson) and sixspace (showing the Fred Tomaselli-like collages of Karin Weiner). There's also an after-party with free drinks and a performance by Giant Drag.
So go see art this weekend!

Reason: + pictures
Im going to try my hand at art soon. A local company is having a design a skate deck contest (cliche?) anyways Im going to switch it up and use a ton of mediums....stone, glass, wood, ect. I have a cnc and waterjet at my disposal, so im going to make it more of a sculpture rather than just painting on it or using digital prints....im really nervous because the last time I tried anything art related was finger painting in the 1st grade.
