Hey y'all! I'm taking it easy in AZ! My good friend Kate Niazi lives here. She is a bad ass on drums! I visited the Phoenix Art Museum. They had a special exhibit on some grafitti clothing. I wasn't too crazy about it.

Stephen Sprouse, 2000.
Cotton knit printed with Andy Warhol image of Jean Michel Basquiat.
Lent by Mr. Todd Allen Bundy.
I went to the Heard Museum which is only a few blocks away from the Phoenix Art Museum. I learn a lot about Native American culture there. They had a special exhibit that I really enjoyed called "Life in a Cold Place." Here is one of the many pieces of art i love from that show....

Autumnal Owl (1999)
Artist: Kenojuak Ashevak
Medium: Stonecut
Size: 61 x 77 cm
I also found out that my special "magic ring" that I always wear is a piece of work from the Zumi tribe. It was nice to find that out, since no one ever told me. I got it at a flea market in New Jersey.

At the Guggenheim in New York the current exhibit is about Richard Prince.

I found this exhibition to be very exciting, because I have seen is art on one of my favourite Sonic Youth album "Sonic Nurse".
I just went to Manhattan to see Robert Pollard's art show. You know, the guy from Guided by Voices. I went with DVN and here he is at Times Square wear and posh black hat that cordinates with is black jacket.!
Here I am with a look straight out of Parisian romance.

When we got to the art show, we pretty impressed~!

I never thought of displaying art on music stands!

I think that Kathe Burkart's series about Elizabeth Taylor was cool. I really like how each painting uses some untraditional material.

I would have to say that my most favourite artist featured at PS1 today is Tony Fitzpatrick. I love his collage. I need to make some collage time. Here is a pic of one of the pieces I saw today that I found on his website.
