p.s. speaking about OLD PEOPLE having fun, see the illustration above, ha !! and, no, not the show’s artists – which look to be ALL new generation, and only old if you are like 15 !!
. . . you’ve got to wonder if OLD PEOPLE terrorizing an entire art scene . . . are having fun ?
or do they still got to beat you with that big stick – to feel like they are alive and kicking ?
I mean it’s pretty sad when it happens in your own family, that throwback power tripper. but to a whole scene. it’s so “unreasonable”. it’s so old school. it’s so unsustainable and it’s so NOT the way of the new world. or art.
whatever happened to graciousness, generosity with a big G, and that ultimate point setter: style.
LA MOCA – what a joke. the news – only worse and getting worser.
well, maybe that’s the way – the new wave comes crashing in – so red rover red rover let the new people come over.
the art world did not begin, or end with the 80s. ELI BROAD COLLECTION aside. it’s really not that remarkable to call the big ones, it’s calling the overlooked ones !! that really counts.
okay I’m gonna lay it on the line.
ok he has twenty something CINDY SHERMANS and twenty something JEFF KOONS – but does he have even one DAN ASHER, no he does not.
that’s it, end of argument.
still don’t get it ?
anybody talking about the latest show up at LA MOCA ? anybody even know the last show to make waves at LA MOCA. there ya go. you got your answer. NO.
the first street art show, LA MOCA circa JEFFREY DEITCH – – was a blast, but since then ?
when you read in the fashion style sections that even a fashion designer like ALBER ELBAZ is quoted as saying: “it’s all about the curators now – not the art”. you know it’s time to re-think the equation.
but in NEW YORK CITY, it’s still all about – the art.
the massing army in Brooklyn, the dead author round the corner.
LA gonna beat NYC – not in this lifetime.
