Larry Bamburg

Marfa, Texas

Tim and I plus http://suntekchung.com/photography.html, Laura Seymour and the MDJ clan were in Marfa last week to visit Jenny Moore in her new post as executive director of Chinati as well as artist Larry Bamburg and brood.

The usual was done: burrito lady for breakfast, visit to Dan Flavin barracks at Chinati, a swim in Balmorhea, dinner at Cochineal and a bonfire at Fairfaxs'. 

The unusual happened: a secret The xx show at Chinati and an after party held in the family manse of the Villareals.

I love Marfa.

Ghosts

Boring life = less posts. It's a scientific fact. Thankfully, I am starting to go out again after crawling out of an industry - read: not fashion - hole. Not a whole lot of glamour in the garment industry folks.

Anyhow, how wonderful to break the fast with an art opening at the Rauschenberg Project Space in collaboration with BALLROOM MARFA. My friend Larry Bamburg had a piece in the show! He's amazing. Fun fact: his smart and hot wife, Jenny Moore, is the new Executive Director at Chinati Foundation. Big ups to that family.

To learn more about Robert Rauschenberg the artist go to his dedicated page on Artsy.

So this is where they eat! Actually         GhostFood         is this avant art thing where the public gets the 'taste' endangered food through scent and mimic texture or better said it's a "  simulated taste experiences of foods threatened with extinction due to the effects of climate change." Plus it has the name Ghost in it.

This is what ghosts eat people.

Forrest Williams       and I. He's all dreamy sexy and I'm crazy times. He was drinking water and then headed to the gym for a swim. I was drinking my second vodka tonic and headed to Grand Sichuan for soup dumplings and tea smoked duck. Damn that man looks good!

Thanks to curator Matthew Day Jackson and Hauser + Wirth gallery for putting together a Good Time.  Let's hear it for the the NYC art scene where conversations are dense (drunk) and stimulating (above and below the belt). Most of all let's spend some time feasting on the gorgeous thought provoking works of Larry Bamburg. Well done.
