May 3, 2005: The High Line

categories:

The Friends of the High Line presented the preliminary design proposal tonight at the Bohen Foundation on 13th Street. I'd seen the web site but it was nice to hear the architect and landscape architect explain the designs and answer questions. Also to see the Bohen Foundation, which I've never heard of and have since learned has a major art collection. In the basement was a recreation of a NY subway station with some slight alterations.


May 2, 2005: The new site

categories:

If you've found your way here then you've undoubtedly noticed the post.thing.net site has changed a bit. Yes, we finally got the drupal site sort of together, enough to make it live. It's better than the fake blog I've been doing for the past four months but now the real work begins.

We see this as a soft launch, a beta version that will be ready for prime time come Fall. During that time we'll work on implementing the drupal modules, writing our own and, most importantly, cultivating a "community" (Wolfgang hates that word so what do we call it, a gang?) to use the site in ways that both adds meaningful content but also provides the incentive to write that content.


April 30, 2005 (Jack Goldstein)

categories:


The ghost of Jack Goldstein is haunting New York right now with films, records and paintings at Mitchell-Innes & Nash uptown and paintings from the early '80s at Metro Pictures in Chelsea. His suicide two years ago went practically unnoticed by a contemporary art world deep in debt to him (details: here).


April 29, 2005 (Richard Prince)

categories:

Richard Prince opened at Barbara Gladstone Gallery tonight with some old but mostly new work. Unlike the past few shows, which were consistant groups of similar work, this was almost a mini-retrospective not only of the work but of his themes and his obsessions through the years.

The result is creepy, made especially so by one work that has an audio loop of a whistled tune/toon that permeates everything else. He's managed to out creep the master Bruce Nauman.

Above is the latest (as of this posting) graph of post.thing.net stats. A big shout out to Pakistan and Italy! And our buddy France is back!

We're working on a new drupal site and it should be up soon with all that entails. I'm back in NYC 4/12/05 if one happens to want to buy me a drink. Keep the faith.
