Leading Whores to Culture

by Jeriah Hildwine At a recent art writers salon dinner hosted by Tricia Van Eck at her still-in-the-works space 6018 NORTH (her new endeavor after leaving her position as the MCA’s chief curator), the group of us were posed some questions, and one in particularly proved thorny.  Things got heated, chaotic, and nasty, which is...

Chicago Gallery Snack Report: March 3rd through March 13th

Co-Prosperity Sphere featured bottles of Miller High Life, and curators Linda Dorman and Tom Torluemke brought an assortment of pies, cakes, and brownies.  Stephanie thought the cake was too sweet; she should have known better:  you don't expect subtlety from something that bright pink!  I found the apple pie more to my taste.  After enjoying our beers and desserts, we ended up buying a small Billy Pozzo sculpture, which looks like the top half of a submerged zombie's head, who now lives in a bowl in our living room.  Thanks guys!

Chicago Gallery Snack Report: Friday, November 12 to Friday, December 3

What better way to end off the night but with cookies?  Oh, First Fridays is a cash bar, by the way.  Straight out of a David Cross routine, you've got to buy tickets and then exchange those for your drinks.  Drink tickets are non-refundable, so figure out what you're going to drink before you pay for your tickets.  We bought $20 in tickets.  I had a 10-ticket Bombay Sapphire martini, Steph had a 5-ticket beer, and then with our remaining 5 tickets we split one last beer.  I kind of wanted to have a few more drinks and then go watch Black Swan, but some friends called to invite us to the Brauhaus in Lincoln Square for sausage and boots of beer.  Which was great.  Black Swan was great too, we saw it a few days later.
