~SECRET WEEKEND/WLIP/EXPL SKY & EASTERN DISTRICT/FRI APRIL 14th !!
I did catch: JOSH HARRIS/THE ENGER BROS/JASON GRUNWALD/and/THE VIENNAGRAM last weekend – as the lights went down on artlovers’ PHP.
JOSH HARRIS . . . back in town, looking for the GPS on the LITTLE ITALY POKER GAMES.
GOMPERTZ is in THAILAND.
this is GALINSKY – one of the early pioneers at PSEUDO – he ran the talk show.
GALINSKY also had a brief re-surgence of fame – he was the guy behind the CRAZY FAN ATTACKS/that rocked YouTube – when WE LIVE IN PUBLIC – had its NYC MOMA PREMIER last April 2009.
he says Josh was in on the joke – but not Ondi. I’m not so sure just how much Josh was in on that – joke, either !!
judge for yourself.

DAVID LESLIE and MARK ENGER.
DAVID LESLIE – also an early PSEUDO employee – he ran the the big parties – mostly he oversaw the production side of things. It was David Leslie who first hired me to work on the production crew at QUIET. I was already working for Josh !! consulting on his quilt collecting – but his empire was so big – I didn’t even know this was one of his party sites – I just happened to walk by and went in looking for some extra work – I started off painting the wall trim. the rest is history. DAVID LESLIE went on to run the infamous FIGHT CLUB/CELEBRITY ARTIST BOXING MATCHES – that sprung up from the ashes of QUIET.
MATT & MARK – THE ENGER BROS aka EXPLODING SKY WORLDWIDE.
MARK put the silk screen ‘TARGET’ insignias on the QUIET uniforms. MATT & MARK later taught Josh how to shoot up on the farm. This is the opening reception of their new work at MINDY WYATT GALLERY, 814 Broadway, 2nd FL.
the show runs thru MAY 7, 2010.
they are selling a limited selection of their custom silk screened one-of-a kind work jackets.
some of which you might want to think twice about wearing on the streets of NYC – esp if you are going to be drunk or stoned. or even in a MacDonalds !! some dumb ass – is sure to pick a fight with ya.
MARK ENGER – DID THE ALL SILKSCREEN DRAWINGS & PRODUCED ALL THE JACKETS – including THE LOGOS.
DAVID SALLE seems to be having a cultural come back !! after kind of being mothballed. RIGHT ON !!
which is no slight on the ENGER BROS – they know what they do. run the most unrecognized silk screen shop – since ANDY WARHOL hogged all the action. the jackets are going for $100 a pop. the best pop for your art $$ out there right now. no doubt about it.
that’s the LUVVY insignia – on the right – anybody who caught Josh on any fraction of his global media tour for WE LIVE IN PUBLIC – recognizes this one !!
though, you might want to think twice bout truckin’ around in this particular one !!
Josh’s original one had a blank/politically correct back. I think.
porn in comics books is (pretty much) ok.
you don’t always want to wear it upfront & big – on your sleeve !!
