What is going on in China? Overall, the Zhang Huan show Blessings at the Pace Wildenstein gallery didn't move me much, but the centerpiece, a sculpture over 15 feet tall and 25 feet long, made entirely, and very clearly, almost nauseatingly, of cowhides, was pretty mind-blowing. I'm not sure I fully got what was going on, either as art or as commentary, but in terms of causing a visceral reaction, it certainly caused one.

Altmejd's Monsters

Last weekend (or maybe even the weekend before, it's hard to tell these days), ED and I wandered out to Chelsea to drink some lemonade and look at some art. A handful of galleries had shows bearing mention, but we'll start with David Altmejd at the Andrea Rosen Gallery, which CD had previously recommended. While I could describe at length the odd creatures that had been assembled in the service of art, I'd recommend you swoop through and see for yourself.

Simon Stabs

Simon Stabs was easily my favorite thing at the ITP Spring Show. As always, the young nerds were up to lots of cool tricks (and lots of half-baked ones). And I forgot how cute/hot/nerdily-androgynous the young nerd community can be...

Car 30 / 41 Hours

The thought foremost in my mind is that if I were trapped in an elevator for 41 hours, at some point, I would have taken off my clothes (or at least untucked my shirt...)
