Art by J. Fiber, close up, ink on paper. Cloud Nine is open until May 13
Anyway, I was at this opening (I'll have to borrow someone's snap since I didn't take any of the opening) and this show is called CLOUD NINE and it's at this Billyburg gallery, The Front Room, and it's crowded as shit, hot, the beers gone and I get introduced to this artist, Disney Nasa Borg, (?), and he's a surfer but he looks like he's from Road Warrior. So we're gabbin' about cold water when this angry little thing in glasses places herself in the middle of us, like a ref, looks up and says "excuse me but can I see the art?" and bulldozes her way to the big life size collage of a naked fat dude in a room encrusted with fast food wrappers. (by Cham Giobbi) She was a pisser that one. Why at an opening that is so damn crowded in a small room? It's not like I haven't seen it before but there is that simmering aggression of the desperate under appreciated artist that flowers in unlikely places. I appreciate her segway - so I went to the show the next day when the gallery was relatively quiet.

January 25th, 2012 • Paul H-O New feature on the wily and wooly star of GalleryBeat Television, the artist, critic, editor of artnet.com magazine. Walter has been a good friend since 1988 and this is a very complex matrix of sources. The article itself reminds me a good cubist painting, like a Braque, an image I wouldn't expect at all. I may change my mind, but for now I'm happy that comprehensive attention is being paid to the eminent Walter (Mike) Robinson.

The long simmering appetizer video, Cooking with GalleryBeat @ The Brooklyn Museum, Part 2 (shortie V.) with Robin Cembalest is the Chief Editor of ARTnews, the oldest and largest circulation art magazine in the world as she speaks of the history of art media, art, and her adventures chasing down stories. This dish also comes with teaser spots of GB guests Mrs.& Mr.: Kristin Bowler and Spencer Tunick, Ann Carr from the Web Series THE ACTRESS, Sanford Biggers and his big show at The BMuseum, and Dr. Daryl Isaacs, Head Physician of Mercer St. Medical.

Popular Doctor for New York's Creative Community Gets Booted by Greedy Landlord
My version of Dr. House is real. New documentary at square two is in reality in pre-production, a drama with 27 hours of real-time video about Dr. Daryl Isaacs, the uniquely brilliant and prolific internist, gives me his story of the struggle with the American medical establishment fix - all specialists and no GP's. He demonstrates in check form the insanity of "for profit health insurance' companies", Isaacs' massive patient load, and the surprising facts behind his inclusion in the hit film - SUPERSIZE ME, by then documentary director, Morgan Spurlock.
The Mercer Street Medical Case begins as a New York real estate nightmare, because Daryl Isaacs loses the lease on his medical practice and must move by the end of May. It was April and I began shooting the more »
