  4. My new drawings + poster created from said drawings that will be on display at the Yuri’s Night DC fete. (Sorry, but I don’t draw rocket ships.) 

  5. My friend and I edited the Curator’s Statements at the Whitney Biennial over beers. More complaints here.

  6. With a few big exceptions, I don’t much care for abreactive or con-fessional memoirs. I’m not sure how to explain this. There is probably a sound, serious argument to be made about the popularity of confessional memoirs as a symptom of something especially sick and narcissistic/voyeuristic about U.S. culture right now. About certain deep connections between narcissism and voyeurism in the mediated psyche. But this isn’t it. I think the real reason is that I just don’t trust them. Memoirs/confessions, I mean. Not so much their
    factual truth as their agenda. The sense I get from a lot of contemporary memoirs is that they have an unconscious and unacknowledged project, which is to make the memoirists seem as endlessly fascinating and important to the reader as they are to them- selves. I find most of them sad in a way that I don’t think their authors intend.

  7. Art and Rejection →

    The odd thing about rejection, I’ve found, is that it is both dispiriting and galvanizing at the same time. You are left with the impulse to show them, show them all (“them” of course, being strangers and acquaintances who have their own lives to worry about and don’t care—your friends and family, who are rooting for you all along, you take no pleasure in showing up) but also wonder what the hell is wrong with you.
