“We’re Revolting” pop-up installation opens at Creatures of Comfort this Saturday, Oct. 20!
I’m still pinching myself that these amazing artists and designers were willing to be involved, and to create one-of-a-kind and exclusive pieces. It’s caused some serious soul-searching, as someone who spends a lot of time looking at images, how intense and satisfying it is to touch these dimensional objects, the weight of things and how they fit in your hand, and how incredibly made they are: each one a little lifetime, of beating hearts and scrutiny and utter gorgeous perfection. Come check out the show.
OPENING RECEPTION: 5-8 p.m., Oct. 20
WHERE: Creatures of Comfort LA, 7971 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles, CA
WHEN: October 20 to November 10, 2012.

Blue Sail (1964-1965), a blue chiffon sheet blown by a fan, by Hans Haacke:
“Of all the conceptualist artists working today, Haacke is the one who best understands how art bullies the viewer.”
“What’s appealing about Haacke is he knows exactly what he’s doing and doesn’t think he should be doing anything else. He never tries to tart his work up with irony or sarcasm or coyness or metaphors or jokes. “Art-making is just another part of the consciouness industry,” he said in an interview in 1994. His way of assessing art? Based on how intelligent it is, as with any other form of opinion-mongering.”
