Laura Seymour

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.

E'ry Month

Thank goodness we live in a multi-cultural city where gallery openings and art happenings occur on the regular. Last night I dragged my ass out to enjoy one such event and to support my friend, artist Jonathan Marshall at WILDLIFE gallery in Bushwick, Brooklyn.

La Nina Tatuada de Llullaillaco by Jonathan Marshall. Stunning papier mache sculpture that served as a sort of elephant in the room. Surely would have encouraged intelligent conversation if we weren't standing around drinking Dewer's and sodas.

A tiny lady in a large glass box. Fuck gentrification (but keep opening those delish restaurants!)

Frieze

I love me some Laura Seymour. She is everything you would want in a friend and more (super talented, compassionate, dry sense of humour, perfect amount of bitchiness ;)

We took in some art this weekend at the Frieze art fair on Randall's Island. For those haters who do not consider fashion to be art...FACE! Tell it to the revered artists who think otherwise.

I apologize for not knowing all of the artist's names for work below.
