B-Boy Limping

P.S. …



Last Sunday Jori and I had a party fun time at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center’s summer opening celebration, which unveiled new exhibits as well as the winner of the 2009 MoMA/P.S.1 Young Architects Program (YAP). It was a piece called afterparty by the architectural firm MOS, and it’ll be up all summer as the environment for the Warm Up music series.


It’s the tenth summer of the YAP. Each year five finalists are selected and are asked to present an urban landscape for P.S.1’s courtyard entrance with a projected budget of of $70,000, and with  elements of shade, water, seating, and bar areas (’cause you know how art-lovers like to get their drink on).

Jori said afterparty reminded her of Snuffleupagus. She took this picture.

Speaking of Jori, there she is in the middle, in Leandro Erlich’s Swimming Pool. She’s also in two other places in the collage. Can you find her? Fun game!

This was my favorite installation, hence the heart in the middle. It’s made up of Jonathan Horowitz’s Neon Cross for Two (2007), Pillow Talk Bed (2002), and Je T’aime (1990), and it’s part of the New York artist’s first solo exhibit And/Or, organized by Klaus Biesenbach. In this pic the pillowcases say “R2-D2” and “C-3PO”, but musuem staff periodically change them. Some other pairs are Barack and Michelle, Portia and Ellen, Bert and Ernie, etc., etc.,

There’s also a Sam and Lindsay, which for a second I thought was a reference to “Freaks and Geeks” which, while awesome, would have been kind of gross b/c they are brother and sister.  Then I got it. Shows you how much I give a shit about those two.

Hey! Here’s this year’s Warm Up schedule!
