In late 2011, I was commissioned by one of my collectors George Haddad, aka "Cousin George" to produce a video for one of his tracks on his upcoming album Coming Out. Not wanting to confuse this video with my own musical art videos, I decided to go out, buy a new wig, and try out some of my wardrobe that had not been worn.
Just in time for an explosion of exhibitions in museums and galleries all over Southern California, two new art fairs were launched in LA last week. It was a great marketing coup for both, for Art Platform, the bigger and more ambitious of the two, and for Pulse Art. Guilty as charged, I had a chance to see only Art Platform, and was impressed by the roster of dealers and the art they had on display. Here, I will join the chorus of people impressed with Art Platform organizers for raising the bar for all art fairs in our city.
