Sometimes we just need to take a break* and look at some art.
It was a big arty farty weekend in New. York. City., what with the Armory Show and the Whitney Biennial. The curators of the Whitney show managed just in their preface alone to use the terms "geographical fluidity," "osmosis," "obfuscation," and "monkish ascetic" all while talking about an artist who put a real urinal in a museum and called it "art." (I really love Duchamp. Honest. But he would be the first to laugh at the curators, doncha think?)
Blue Gal could take the time to say something "important" about those who think they can say something "important" about art, but she would much rather let Penn Jillette lip synch it for her, even though it takes a moment to download.
To read the NYFT (not to be confused with STFU) you would think it was just William Wegman weekend. Good choice, if you ask me. Took some lookin', but Wegman himself is far more generous with web images than the galleries themselves, so go to the source, people. And be sure to check out the very funny quicktime movies here.
More panties than you can handle later this week, ma hunnies.
*Yeah, I know, Blue Gal's taken a long break from politics but she's sick of it. And the real campaigning hasn't even started yet.
