Chain Letter Part Two Part One

Man, this whole Chain Letter thing has blown up like crazy! I have a bunch of other stuff to catch up on here, but I figure the people might want to see these photos. This is actually the second batch, as the first -- from the install -- are on another computer. These are from the opening, which was awesome.

There must have been a dozen unscheduled performance artists or more (not including the Round of Applause Parade that circulated through the entire parking lot, picking up participants as it went along, crusade style). Word in the parking lot was that this was a father and son team, rocking a minimal papier mache euro-puppet look to great effect -- here they are unmasked, digging the Keith Walsh Experience.

Many kind souls contributed additional victual provisions including a bonus beer keg (on top of the six that crippled Wayne Blank) and this inventive erotic red velvet wanker cake, which was devoured and/or demolished in rapid order.

Is it possible to take a bad picture of this show? I can't match many of these works to their artists -- we'll just have to wait for the catalog...

Blessed be the Biscuitmakers. That guy made off with Micol Hebron's birthday cake!

All Roads Lead to Faüxmish

Faüxmish's debut LP "F for Ache" is still at the pressing plant, but its artisan-tooled jacket is touring Italy as part of Michael Arata's "One Night Stand -- Italian Style" traveling exhibit. Here it is installed on the wall of the Coliseum. "I did not know men could build such things" -- Juba the Gladiator could have been speaking of the finely crafted, hand-flocked beauty of this exquisite collector's item!

Last Chance for Cut & Paste Extravaganza!

If you haven't seen Elliott Hundley's amazing new collages (and sculptures and paintings) at Regen Projects II at 9016 Santa Monica Blvd, today's the last day. They're open until 6 PM, so no excuses! I'd say more, but I just finished a 5000 word essay on the work, and figured I should get the work out fast. These are some detail shots I took. Free prize to the first person who can identify the works from which they are extracted! Leave guesses in Comments.
