(Nothing But) Flowers.

I am diggin' this photo of Creative Time alum Jim Hodges'
1996 piece No Betweens
at SFMoMA, even though it shows an adult museum goer behaving badly. I highly recommend clicking here
to get the full effect. Wicked. Beautiful. Man, I loved
Hodges did for Creative Time back in 2005. Unrelated, but not: The color scheme for No Betweens
really reminds me of the print
Fred Tomaselli did for CT.
NY1 did a really nice piece
on Bill Brand's Masstransiscope
. It's a great place to see the painting animation in action. Or, of course, you could just jump on the Q train.
Things Fall Apart
Damn right they do. Creative Time hero Paul Chan
, in collaboration with NOLA-based The Front
, is in the group show Things Fall Apart
at Winkleman Gallery curated by painter
, and general kicker of ass Joy Garnett
. The appropriately-timed exhibit centers around, well, the center not holding so much. Yeah. I know. We've a new president. That's great, but it doesn't mean we're not totally screwed for the long moment. So, after draining that last celebratory pint (which I'm assuming will be a few days from now.) head over to Winkleman and remind yourself that this shit is real
Ooh. Mandatory listening . . . a gallery talk was given on Saturday by Chan + The Front and you can listen to it here
And the owl? Oh, hello. It's a drawing by Paul Chan, and for 5 bucks you can enter the raffle
to win it. Proceeds will benefit The Front. What's not to like about this? Nothing, I say. Not a thing. Jump on it.
With Or Without You.
Hey Hey Glossolalia
star Genesis P-Orridge seems to be on a bit of a roll lately. I posted about the new PTV album a couple posts ago, and barely had a chance to turn around before there was another must-have that hit the shelves. The mighty Period Tapes
has released the cassette A Reading From The Swiss Institute
, dedicated to Lady Jaye Breyer P-Orridge. It's filled with grief and the confusion and certainty that often accompanies it. A life listen.

Creative Time, always on the pulse. Sometimes twice. The recent refurbishment of an early CT project, Bill Brand's Masstransiscope
brought the work back into the Times
on New Year's Day. It was difficult to not think of the mirror of hard times that the piece represents. Love among the ruins.
