Have a secret desire? Want to know whether it will come true? Ask Gypsy! As JB, LS, and I were strolling down Collins Avenue last night, post-Verge show, we saw a scary creature erupting out of Lords Hotel (at 11th Street).

Essex Hotel has been taken over by Verge Art Fair this weekend, and the opening party was a blast.

The last time I did the rounds at Art Week Miami, Art Asia was hands down the best show I attended. Not too big — not too small. Great works hanging but also interactive works and performances. Everything about the show was executed to perfection. If you have a limited number of shows to attend, this should […]Read more "Art Miami 2012 Preview: Art Asia"

Pulse Art Fair holds two show annually: NYC and Miami. I was able to attend the Miami Fair in 2010 and it was definitely one of the better shows. The work was surprising and JB and I had a blast talking to the very reception gallery reps. (Snobbery factor was very low) This fair is […]Read more "Miami Art 2012 Preview: PULSE"

When I hear the word pavilion, I automatically think of Disney World where there were these huge canopied structures that did not contain anything until Mickey Mouse, et al arrived on the scene to do a song and dance routine. For some of you, you might think of The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion where concerts, […]Read more "From Kate Spade to rice paddies: The Contemporary Pavilion"
I am so excited that DiverseWorks has moved into its new space in Midtown Houston. Although I will miss the bright blue bench outside the warehouse district location, I am looking forward to newer and greater things to happen. First show is houstontohouston by Franklin Evans. A native of Reno, Nevada, Evans uses materials and various […]Read more "DiverseWorks new digs!"

Just got done watching the HBO Documentary “About Face: Supermodels Then and Now.” Though the content wasn’t the greatest – the photography was amazing. Once of my favorite fashion photographers is the great Richard Avedon and since I am in dire need of a haircut, here are some “hair” shots. (My fave of Sofia Loren is […]Read more "Hair Fashion: Richard Avedon"

Today I am sharing information about his new art installation REBEL at LA MOCA which focuses on James Dean and the making of Rebel Without a Cause. Basically, Franco created a replica of 1950’s Hollywood as it relates to […]Read more "I always fall for the bad boys: James Franco’s REBEL"
Paulo Nazareth is a performance artist from Brazil and although I normally associate men from Brazil either playing a mean game of soccer or trying to out dance me in a samba, Nazareth is a Latin American artist who has gotten quite a bit of exposure in the past year or so and I am […]Read more "Paulo Nazareth: More than a banana man"
