  • 07.01.14 : The Body that Jill Built

    Art In America kindly asked me to write an introduction to the life and work of the inimitable Jill Johnston, which you can download HERE. My writing can never replace Johnston's own voice, in which you should immerse yourself in such books as MARMALADE ME -- her classic collection. I want to thank Leigh Anne Miller (Photo Editor at AiA) for her brilliant work.

  • 11.03.13 : Outtakes | Mark Leckey

    I reviewed Mark Leckey's show "On Pleasure Bent" at The Hammer Museum in Los Angeles for Art In America's forthcoming December issue and as always, I had more to say than the word count allowed. I've always wondered what to do with the detritus of thinking -- the extraneous threads, thoughts and half-thoughts that, in the end, didn't evolve into a whole idea, or fit the form, or serve the final focus of a text. Thus this inaugural "Outtakes" entry, in which I upload writing scraps that didn't survive the cut. In the case of my review of Leckey's show, I spun my wheels for a long time on the question of contemporary art and pleasure, but these thoughts never found the proper traction.

    What do these outtakes amount to? I don't know. If nothing else, I hope they entice you to see Leckey's show for yourself.

  • 04:14:13 : Nelson Sullivan Tribute at NYU

    To honor the Fales Library's acquisition of the Nelson Sullivan archives, I was honored to helm two events on behalf of the Steinhardt School, as a collaboration with the Fales Library. The first night, "Nelson Sullivan's New York," archivist and historian Robert Coddington introduced the audience to Nelson and his extraordinary work. The second night, "Nelson Sullivan: Vloggin in the 80s" was a celebration of Nelson's life and work by those who knew and loved him including Michael Musto (author and columnist), Lady Miss Kier (DJ and former singer of Deee-Lite), Flloyd (drag queen and performance artist, Joe Jeffries (drag historian and videographer), Robert Coddington (5 Ninth Avenue Project), and Paula Gately Tillman (photographer).

    Nelson Sullivan was a chronicler of the 1980s downtown life, documenting the performances, parties, and people who have now become the stuff of urban legend. His extraordinary archive of over 1,300 hours of footage is now available to all at the Fales. You can see selected clips here.
