introverted extrovert or extroverted introvert??? Every millennials most urgent self-interpellative question.. @ @shulamitnazarian opening 7/20 🙂🙁
thank you Matt Grubb aka @mattgrubb.americas.waffle for reminding us that no matter how much society tries to dignify us with “rights” and “acceptance” all gay men are depraved and disgusting, always secretly driven by scandalous desires and otherwise wonderfully abject. Never forget and always be proud... 🧡 this show is great 🧡@56henry.nyc
@cabanforqueens rules. This is what we want: public defenders becoming DAs! If u are a millenial on IG who’s had a hot take on anything lately or any passing interest in criminal justice reform you should donate to and vote for her accordingly. Srsly go look at her IG if you need convincing. Election june 25. still lots of time to donate 🤑🤑🤑
I am definitely !!!Not Jealous!!! of @loufratino ‘s prodigious and rare talent, sensitivity, uniqueness, overall charm and literal youth so my congratulations to him on his massive achievement at @sikkemajenkins is totally sincere and not tinged with anything but adoration and enthusiasm and especially not with secret vampiric desires to somehow be able to make paintings these singular and mature while being back in my 20s 😬
@nikkimaloof at @jackhanleygallery 🔥🔥🔥 have u ever had a panic attack and afterward you’re mostly calmed down but lights are still a little too bright and everything is a little over saturated and sharpened, menacing and generally Unheimlich, and it’s dispelling the illusion that a cute house filled w happy domestic objects has any essential protective qualities??? Has anyone else had these feelings??? Maybe it was just this excellent show, which i truly loved and found companionable and cute (the best quality) but neither pacifying nor enervating nor “safe” least of all
so proud of @jarrettearnest for his insane show of #paulcadmus #paveltchelitchew and frenemies @ @davidzwirner - this show is very dark and says some really deep and perverted things about white gay interiority (in canonical art history at least), how its utopian visions flirt with fascism (see the second image) and how the beauty and sensuality of the white gay man, the fetish for leisure and male odalisque, its obsession with classical mythology and its imagery is inextricable from a kind of violent power hierarchy... As I try to take on the struggle of interrogating white gayness this show is helpful in demystifying how these tropes have been at once co-opted by homonationalist movements and have also emanated that aesthetic constitutively. This is an important show to see, especially for gay figurative artists. It reckons with demonic forces. Proud of @jarrettearnest for once again challenging me to dislodge narcissist aesthetic assumptions without resorting to didactics or scolding
Lynette yiadom boakye @ jack shainman - this show is perfect, deeply funny and thoughtful, any ig picture of any painting there fails...
@nomikikonst is running for public advocate in a special election for public advocate on February 26th and today is the last day that the city will match funds 8x that you donate. There are admittedly a lot of progressive candidates in the campaign and a few have more name recognition (tho the front runner endorsed nyc’s odious amazon deal, is linked to NYC real estate interests and doesn’t have great politics re Palestine) but it’s an important job (the last two ppl to fill the position became mayor and state attorney general) and this position demands someone free of external influence. Except for the influence of righteous fury!!! Look up Nomiki on YouTube debating Satans own Tucker Carlson or going off at the DNC unity reform meeting if you want an example of her 🔥 - I’ve been listening to interviews w her for the last 2 days and she is 💯⚖️ #nomikikonst
so looking forward to this show - @bridgemullen is a dear friend to all - animal, vegetable and mineral (and numinal???) - and while I dislike describing abstraction as radical or attributing it any concrete allegorical content as a way to assert its value i do think the elective affinities / ad hoc motifs in her paintings propose how difference can be overcome in the moment, provisionally, without overdetermination or essence and without flattening into modernist nostalgia... which is a sociocultural / political power we rlly need rn 🧞♀️🧞♀️🧞♀️ #Repost @helenaanrather ・・・ So excited to start 2019 with Bridget Mullen’s ‘Threshold Blues,’ her first solo show in New York. Opening January 17! 💥@bridgemullen 💕 📷: #BridgetMullen ‘The Kiss,’ 2018, Flashe, spray paint, and ink on canvas, 20.25”x16”
“circadian courtyard” up at #untitledartfair with #shulamitnazarian, closing tomorrow - but more importantly how insane do u think I felt after I finished this painting and I saw it was just this emoji 🤪 (detail shots follow)
beyond blurring the boundary btwn abstraction and figuration (yawn) - the best contemporary figurative painters have to manage to depict the overlap of absolutely flat affect and totally dysregulated emotions. These paintings by ebecho muslimova, robin f Williams and sanya kantarovsky are the future of figuration (in my opinion). Loved seeing them at art basel today, made it worth the crowds, so inspiring, wild
eschatological jewelry chest for accessorizing as the end of history susses out what is good and what is evil, Jacobs ladder tincture for helping u metaphysically traverse that spectrum... this and other glam hermeneutics at #untitledartfair today with #shulamitnazarian
#untitledartfair opens today! check out the #shulamitnazarian booth which four of my paintings humbly co-occupy with #summerwheatlillian and #trenton_doyle_hancock - also someone pls buy me that table
@eveackroyd is curating a show of our most embarrassing paintings, more details next image — i put in this one from 2014... before I fully realized femme jew nerdesse ascendency............. or fully realized paintings......
