What can you say about Joan Rivers that hasn’t been said before?  Her career has outlived most of us and will last for as long as she chooses to perform and make public appearances.  She’ll continue to be the brunt of jokes as people will never be able to get over her plastic surgery.  Also, people will never be able to get over her sharp tongue.  Her performances take hilarious jabs at both celebrities, the audience as well as herself.  I saw her perform at the Laurie Beechman Theatre in New York on February 1, 2012 and she’s amazing in every way.  She brushed off getting caught on camera smoking pot (and in a much funnier way told everyone to get over it!) and she talked about the numerous charities she donates her time and money to.  After the show was over, Joan was more than happy to sign autographs and talk to fans as she always does.  Considering how many times in her career she’s gone through this situation (and from personal experience, I’ve met Joan Rivers at least 10 times in my life), it warms my heart to see a true Hollywood legend live up to their name.  Thanks Joan!  You rule!

Joan Rivers is performing at the Laurie Beechman Theatre in Times Square on Valentine’s Day, so make sure you go see her!

“Trash Landing” by Nate Lowman

"Trash Landing" by Nate Lowman at Gavin Brown's Enterprise in New York. Now showing through June 18, 2011.

Nate Lowman’s latest exhibit “Trash Landing” at Gavin Brown’s Enterprise in New York continues the artist’s trend of observing modern life and depicting it in art.  For example, the above diptych of Jane Fonda and Joan Rivers links the two women as icons of American narcissism.  Throughout the exhibit, you’ll see the world’s obsession with violence, celebrity and inevitable collapse in a cleverly organized mixed-media exhibit.

At the bank of the gallery, after you pass through a bank teller window that has been shot at multiple times, you’ll see Nate Lowman’s homage to William DeKooning’s “Marilyn Monroe” as there are approximately 20 paintings, only with slight differences but in varying sizes.
