Excerpts from the greatest Gretchen Bender piece, Total Recall, 1987!!!!!!!! (Sound on.)
Living in a Lightbulb opens tonight 6-8pm at Tanya Bonakdar LA. The first part of a summer group show co-curated by @jennyjaskey
and me. Pictured here, clockwise from left, are works by K.R.M. Mooney, Lisa Oppenheim, Sam Lewitt, and Robin Watkins. If you’re in LA, come by! @tanyabonakdargallery
David Hammons on Richard Serra.
Still thinking about this awesome Jessica Stockholder from the MOCA collection show Bennett Simpson curated at the Geffen. Such a showstopper! Congrats @qualitytime1971
and all the artists in The Foundation of the Museum @moca.
Last night at @moca
’s benefit, the museum received an extremely generous gift from Board president @carolynclarkpowers
to support free admission for all visitors. This is a hugely important step in opening our doors as wide as possible to the city of Los Angeles and beyond. Details to come soon! Here are some photos of MOCA’s rockstar curatorial team that I am thrilled to be joining in July. Big congrats to them all on their beautiful exhibitions at Grand Ave and the Geffen, and on a fantastic 40th anniversary event! @asimmshunt @lankatatters @qualitytime1971 @annanotana #bryanbarcena
⭐️Nicole Eisenman’s installation is for sure one of the highlights of this year’s Whitney Biennial. A knockout! I am unable to post more because I took almost no photos at the opening since I was too busy congratulating all the artists and the curators and their team for what I KNOW was a challenging feat. This is a regram from @phippslaura.
Nice visit yesterday with the Deborah Remington Trust. Woke up this morning still thinking about her highly personal, enigmatic work. This is Dorset from 1972.
Mark Manders “Tilted Head” in Central Park on a rainy Saturday morning stroll.
Vincent Fecteau, Re-Enactment, 1994, collage. Fingertip for scale.
💙❤️Helen Frankenthaler and Emma Amos 💛🧡in “Spilling Over,” a show about color and painting in the 60s, curated by @davidcbreslin.
Nancy Spero, Mother and Child, 1956!
All too often curators have to leave institutions in order to move up the proverbial ladder, so it’s very heartening to see @thomaslax
being promoted (and @a_janevski
in 2017) within the MOMA ranks. It’s especially nice to see because they are people I deeply respect and I’m lucky to call friends. Congrats! (All photos taken by @stuartcomer
who also happens to be their supportive boss. Go dept of media and performance!)
