For Rauschenberg

Fri, 2008-11-28 13:45
I was obliged to go to North Acton this morning. I had to walk about half a mile from the underground station. The walk took me along an alley sandwiched between a graveyard and the railway tracks. It was littered with dead leaves, plastic bottles and sodden newspapers. The steel railings, warehouse walls and lamp posts were all covered with graffiti. A mournful sign on the railway tracks said 'Whistle'. It was cold and raining. I would not, on balance, walk through there at night. But this m

Langweilig und banal: Money Shot von Christa Faust

Tue, 2008-11-25 07:06
(deutsch: Hardcore Angel) Was fängt man jetzt mit so einem Buch an, dass doch mit einigen Vorschusslorbeeren aus den USA zu uns nach Europa gekommen ist und dass uns das Pornogewerbe ‘mal aus einer anderen, der weiblichen Sicht präsentieren will. Da mutete es schon beinahe wie politische Unkorrektheit an, dieses Buch nicht bedingungslos zu preisen. Im Mittelpunkt des Buches steht Angel Dare, alternde Ex-Pornodiva, einst ein Star im Gewerbe. Um der gewerbetypischen überschnellen Alterung zu entko

Your Dying King

Sat, 2008-11-22 09:01
There’s a scene in Oliver Stone’s 1991 film JFK when Kevin Costner, playing the hero attorney Jim Garrison, breaks character and addresses the viewer directly to echo the words he just said to the jury passing judgment on the men who may have conspired to assassinate President John F. Kennedy: “Don’t forget your dying king.” Growing up Irish-Catholic, I learned to idolize JFK as a figure of great courage and to remember him as a figure of great sadness. The one item of non-religious art in my pa

Eli Broad Proves - Once Again - Los Angeles Is Eli Broad And The Seven Dwarfs!

Whenever there is a crisis in Los Angeles' cultural institutions, there is always one man who will step up and leave the rest behind to follow in his tracks. Below is Eli Broad's Op-Ed piece in Saturday's LA Times. Saving MOCA Philanthropist Eli Broad says his foundation will give $30 million if others will come forward to help. By Eli Broad November 21, 2008 With the news this week that the Museum of Contemporary Art on Grand Avenue is in dire financial straits and might have to merge with

Digital Media Artist Laurence Gartel went back to his original equipment from three decades ago. He made "new" work on "old" machines. Incredibly these machines 35+ years old are still operational and integrate with today's technology. Absolutely nothing is obsolete. - The results are astounding!!

MOCA’s Financial Woes

Thu, 2008-11-20 16:24
Yesterday Mike Boehm reported that LA’s MOCA is having some serious financial problems. It’s going to be interesting to see how they are going to remedy this. When LACMA opened BCAM many people wished that a institution that had as much land as LACMA would boost their collection to the size of MOCA. So maybe we will see a merger of the two or with The Getty. via Mike Boehm for the Los Angeles Times: “Los Angeles’ prestigious but chronically underfunded Museum of Contemporary Art has fallen

"Un paio di calzini non sono meno adatti a fare un dipinto, di legno, chiodi, trementina, olio e stoffa". Questa provocatoria frase ci fa già comprendere in parte la filisofia artistica del suo autore, Robert Rauschenberg (1925 – 2008),  fotografo e pittore statunitense, vicino alla pop art.  Rauschenberg non si limita alla sola pittura ed all'interno delle sue composizioni introduce elementi materici, oggetti, addirittura animali impagliati.   Il nome che l'artista da a questa personale comm

Sat, 2008-11-15 18:05 am posting this here because so many people "judge" the value of art based on the materials of which art works are made, which of course is bunkum.Not to say that art can't be made from expensive materials also.Case in point Damian Hirst's Skull, encrusted with diamonds, which is collectively owned by a group of investors, including Hirst.Kyi May Kaung

Art Market Takes a Hit

Fri, 2008-11-14 13:15
I've never understood the high price of art, especially contemporary - the incredible prices for some of these things makes me believe this is just a way for the world's rich to burn off extra cash that would otherwise sit in a safe. Granted some exclusion for things that are rare and historical I suppose, but that's just an uncouth personal take from someone who, with the means, would rather own something like a NFL franchise ;) To each their own. But these stories show the economic malaise co

another 20-25% (4% of portfolio) if we crossed back over S&P 875. I'd of cut more as the market gained steam as a capital preservation measure, but since I did not write it on the site yesterday I am not counting that. Instead we ate all those losses. I wrote I would allocate 12-15% of our portfolio to Ultra Russell 2000 (TWM) [long] as the S&P broke over 840... the price at the time was mid $17s. It ended the day at $21.30s which was a 22% gain missed with a sizeable part of the portfo

They're doing their little part, he told me, to hold up California's collapsing property values. I suspect that it only will be this week. I've been helping my friend Roland look for a house.

Animals in art

Wed, 2008-10-15 00:41
When Robert Rauschenberg smeared oil paint on the face of a stuffed goat in 1955, a piece ("Monogram") that expressed nothing less than a revolution in formal invention, animals did not loom large in the art consciousness of the era.
