January 25th, 2012 • Paul H-O

Episode 75 Part 1 of 3 (First time we meet Tracey Emin, empty room, unknown, chilly dealer bloke, can't take a joke) lol Same copy.

A long time ago, in the distant year 1994, medium-sized New York art dealers Pat Hearn, Colin De Land, and Lisa Spellman started an art fair in the the historically seedy Gramercy Hotel, famous for housing rock bands on tour and for it's piano bar.  more »

Flesh of the Machine > Artist Sono Osato

October 20th, 2011 • Paul H-O
Uploaded by filmlikefilms on Oct 14, 2011 Sono Osato, artist. This is a short studio visit and taping I did during the 2011 Dumbo Festival in late September. It's fascinating to see the array of old manual typewriters and calculators that are gutted to create buoyant metal core mixed media assemblage, along with new paintings that incorporate some metal elements but conveys her deep involvement with the roots of visual language in a passionate freeform style that I would describe as "beautifully beyond". It's the here and now but the history of how visual language can seem like a slow volcanic eruption. Sono has shown her work extensively on the West Coast and is represented by The Brian Gross Gallery in San Francisco.  more »

Cooking with GalleryBeat @ Pierogi 2000 Show #2 with Oliver Wasow

August 29th, 2011 • Paul H-O
CWGB Talk@Piergo 2000 Show #2 -Facebook phenom Oliver Wasow is an acclaimed photography-based artist who also ran one of the best East Village art galleries in the 1980's: C.A.S.H Newhouse. Not only is his work in international collections, it has also graced the covers of Popular Mechanics and Visonaire. We, on the other hand, had noticed that he had garnered a huge following on Fb for his amazingly funny found photographs. He was working on a major book of found photographs. It was quite an interview that began on an easy pace, but like a sentence that scrunches down to tiny letters at the end - you could say that's what happened - he needed an hour and we only had 20 minutes. He was great, but never said a word to me since. I guess we could have added actual images but got sidetracked or I got lazy. Check out his site though, wonderful work. Correction - the gallery is named Pierogi 2000 is now corrected on the headline - sorry!

Odd Nerdum Thrown in Joint for Tax Jam

August 23rd, 2011 • Paul H-O
From Artinfodotcom via News from Norway August 19, 2011

Odd Nerdrum, the Norwegian artist sentenced to two years in jail for tax evasion, won’t be allowed to keep painting in prison. He’s appealing his sentence, but if it stands, the 67-year-old Nerdrum will have to leave his brushes and easels behind.

Newspaper Aftenposten reported that the Justice Ministry has stressed that convicted prisoners aren’t allowed to continue their business activities while held in custody. For someone like Nerdrum, who has lived off income from sales of his artwork, his passion for painting will thus conflict with regulations governing prison terms.

It’s different for other convicts, who have been allowed to paint, read or conduct approved hobbies as a means of passing the time in jail. Aftenposten noted that convicted robber Johnny Thendrup, for example, sentenced to 13 years in prison for the commando-style NOKAS heist in 2004, took up his old hobby of painting while his case was pending. He has since continued to paint while incarcerated at the Ila prison for high-risk criminals outside Oslo.  more »

Magnolia Treet - The Opinions Expressed Are Not Yours or His - a new column

First off, I would like to say welcome and thank you for reading my new column. GalleryBeat Media, as Mr. H-O likes to call it, has been quiet and rather dusty as he chases after documentary film subjects while letting this perfectly nice piece of real estate right here lay fallow. I told Mr. H-O that I would be happy to take care of his little estate in return for room, board and cultural opinion/enlightenment in his squalid little guest house.

I have been intrigued by the arrest of Dominique Straus-Kahn here in New York and what a mess it's become because it was about sex. We don't know what kind of sex took place but if the news reports are nominally factual it would seem that Mons. Straus-Kahn left his manly signature splashed about his posh hotel room. Even discounting the maid's contention of rape to say, half rape, it's still a mess and if you don't know who DSK is then you may have to search International Monetary Fund ex-chairman and likely-dashed-hope-future president of France. Now the accuser has brought suit against Rupert Murdoch's NY Post for calling her a prostitute on the front page.

What has this to do with Paris or London or art?
