Classic GBTV Seedy Television, Beautiful People

January 25th, 2012 • Paul H-O
Episode 75 Part 3 of 3 (a really wonderful moment with missed Pat Hearn, Kristin Bowler in the bumper, fun) A long time ago, in the distant year 1994, an art fair started by medium sized art dealers Pat Hearn, Colin De Land, and Lisa Spellman started an art fair in the the historically seedy Gramercy Hotel.

1986: The One Time I Produced an Artist's Book

June 9th, 2011 • Paul H-O
 The Man Nobody Killed by David Hammons

David Hammons, The Man Nobody Killed screened spray paint on corrugated cardboard, 8.5"X11", 1986


By Paul H-O

How was I to know David Hammons would become huge? I did not. I never thought about it. I'd met Mr. Hammons at the Horseshoe Bar (or Vazacs) at 7th St. and Ave. B in 1984 or '85 through artist Cynthia Kuebel when she was living on Clinton St. near Delancey. I'd only moved to New York in September of '84 because I'd curated a traveling group multi-media exhibition I named SF/SF (San Francisco Science Fiction) and it was the the season opener at PS 1's Clocktower after being at the S.F. Arts Commission Gallery.   It was a post-art-punk installation of metal mechanical sculpture, some paintings, and some photographs my partner and 2nd co-curator Jo Babcock and I had driven in a rented U-Haul 24 foot truck. Once I got to NY after that trip from San Francisco, I had just enough personal belongings in that truck to live in New York.

He demonstrates in check form, the insanity of 'health insurance' companies, a massive patient load and the surprising facts behind his inclusion in the film SUPERSIZE ME by new gen director Morgan Spurlock.. Oh, and he loses the lease on his medical practice and must move in May. It's April now and I'm shooting. "New York the Land of Dissinchantment" Reporting By Paul H-O Rough imaginary trailer for documentary now in production.

December 15th, 2010 • Paul H-O
