A look at the discarded fragments of our lives that were once important enough to write down.

    Been a long time since I rock’n’rolled….

    Here’s a fun little list of where you can find me:

    1. Twitter.com/hydeordie
    2. My Instagram, username: hydeordie
    3. TumbLAngeles, I promote a lot of LA art on this collaboration
    4. Hyde or Buy, my online gallery, check it out for a great curation of affordable art!
    5. I’m on Vine now too, and you guessed it, hydeordie.
    6. Flickr, in case you are into that. I put most of my art shots there of different shows I see.

Very sad to hear about the passing of one of my favorite artists, On Kawara.
One of his more interesting works of his was a series of telegrams he would send to friends every day, the message being simply “I Am Still Alive”. The gravity of the project is made even more profound by the news today.

    Move over Toby* cause I got a new art crush in the name of Gordon Holden. Damns.

*Not really Toby, I love you forever, you know that.

    » LACMA, Metro discussing new museum tower on Wilshire Boulevard

    What, I have thoughts about this? Who would have guessed it! 

    Reasons I think they dropped this nugget:

    • Funding for existing building.
    • If they do get funding for this new tower, they publicly said they want Gehry creating extra pressure on him if he turns it down, he’ll look like a bad guy.
    • Gehry is 85 and doesn’t have a tower in LA…this could be the opportunity if the $$ is raised.
    • LACMA is so hot right now.
    • I feel like it’s safer to feel out ideas like this in the summer, news is slower, reactions are slower. Put out the feelers to see how the public feels with less consequences than if you did it in say, September. 
    • Easily a 10 year project that could coincide an opening with the Olympics if LA’s bid successfully secures the 2024 games.

    Reasons I think this is just a nugget and not much more:

    • Easily a 10 year project, as I said, Gehry is 85. 
    • There’s the money raised for the Zumthor expansion, can they raise that much more? It’s easily a $500 million project. 
    • Zumthor and Gehry working tangentially? Suuuurrrreeeeee.
    • Not only the subway but also the Academy Museum going up? That is a LOT of construction to have going in your vicinity simultaneously. Seems hectic and unsustainable if you want visitors also.
    • Just feels like an “Oh, I’ll drop my wish list while I’m in everyone’s good graces” type of a nugget more than a “this is my game plan” statement. Very Koons at LACMA-esque. Not that that is a bad thing…we all need to dream big.

    Side thought: Do you think Michael Govan has a Pinterest board and what is on it? Bet it’s awesome.

    Event invite I just received…

    Instagram Mini-Marathon with Hans Ulrich Obrist will be a panel event during which invited artists and special guests will discuss how Instagram has provided a space for sharing and exploring their own ideas and practices as well as those of others. We hope these observations will facilitate an engaging discussion about the way in which Instagram functions as a single platform for different creative approaches and collapses the vast variety of impulses for and meanings of posts into one specifically undefined, unbounded space. 

    Emphasis mine because that’s just trolling, right?

    This is all just trolling? I can’t tell anymore.
