Hope and Glam



Last year I participated in a performance directed by Grown Man Naked Projects. About a dozen artists agreed to be “interviewed” in public by a panel about artmaking. The interviews took place inside a gallery, like in a fishbowl. The conversations were projected onto a screen, so the public outside could read what was happening. It was a great piece, technologically, and content wise—about how we talk about art, promote ourselves, interact with those who judge us and our work.
I dressed in my best 1950s outfit and wore a mink stole, and of course the panel pounced on me for that. I’m nothing if I don’t make a visual statement…
My new studio will be in this neighborhood, and I’m hopeful and excited about moving in early next year. With all the depressing conjecture about the future, I need to concentrate on something positive.
I hope you all can find something bright in your future, too. If nothing else, try on some bright red lipstick and your grandmother’s old hat and gloves.
