10 Year's of Wooster Collective

Invited to the pre-opening event & got to meet a ton of the artists in the Jonathan LeVine/Wooster Collective pop-up show. 

Below are just a couple works I liked.

Best in show for me was Bäst's pair of guns.

Really nice Anthony Lister portrait

 Two wonderful Paul Insect girls

Also got to meet for the time Spanish Eltono, who now lives in China & is coincidently married to an old NY Drum & Bass DJ friend. Talk about random small world

Mark & Sara Schiller either side of Jonathan LeVine

Dont sleep. Go see the show... http://www.woostercollective.com


Just found a Miami show catalog from a 2001.

Wini remembers we were staying in Bal Harbor at the Rubell family's hotel, The Beach House & Max was 5 months old.
There was also a who's who of artists staying there & some of them were very friendly.


Feeling my age today having hung out for many hours & even 'danced' a bit to the deep sounds of LUCIANO  & CARL CRAIG.

The event was part of promoter Verboten's StageONE on Brooklyn's Williamsburg waterfront series.

Paul Morris took me up on stage to watch the lads having fun & do their magic.

Weird iPhone panoramic effect.

View from back of the crowd...

..but then turn around


Below, some of the works that were inspiring to me, or just got me all hot & bothered.

Jim Lambie (Detail from much larger work)

Jim Lambie (Belts)
Javier Téllez
Jonathan Monk
Francesco Vezzoli
Cameron Platter "Joyous Dreams Massager" Bronze
Jack Pierson
Cornelia Parker
Doug Aitken Matthew Day Jackson  (Detail from much larger work) Thomas Ruff  Anna Molska Shot from the ferry when arriving at Frieze we spotted a bloated Jeff Koons dog. Is it a dig by the awesome Paul McCathy?


Sad & also inspiring short documentary on the state of music/clubs in NYC.

Sad to watch the Dope Jam guys packing up their wicked store after 7 years, especially having been through the same thing with Breakbeat Science.
Inspiring to see all the cool, creative & in-it-for-the-love shit still going on!
My favorite line was the one when the guy is talking about how great the Mister Saturday Night loft parties are, he says something like "You see all the people not facing the DJ, just dancing" Thats the biggest thing I still cant get my head around with "EDM". What the fuck are they looking at?
