150 Diverse Black Men production team
GalleryBeat Minority Report: I'm the minority.
Principal artists: Chris Johnson (American, b. 1948) and Hank Willis Thomas (American, b. 1976), with Kamal Sinclair (American, b. 1976) and Bayeté Ross Smith (American, b. 1976). Question Bridge: Black Males, 2012. Multichannel video installation. January 13–June 3, 2012 Mezzanine Gallery, 2nd Floor

I rarely attend these museum parties anymore but I wanted to see this show, "150 Diverse Black Males", and be in a crowd where I really didn't know anyone. Turns out I knew about two, and met more, but I was an observer to another part of art culture that was a complex video/doc driven black male experience mash. I really wanted to see what, and who, were a part of producing this ambitious project of identity.

That is it I can't repeat it. It's all in 2 and 3.

Classy GalleryBeat Television - Mark De Suvero, Gramercy Art Fair

January 25th, 2012 • Paul H-O

Episode 75 Part 2 of 3 (sometimes I wish I could have had more discretion)

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. It was also located right across the street from very tony Gramercy Park, exclusive to the residents of said park, and you still need a key to enter it. This was the beginning of the contemporary art fair in the U.S., and would ultimately become one of the most lucrative trade fairs for art on earth, The Armory Show. I used to look forward to hitting the Gramercy Art Fair, with it's funky rooms turned into funkier New York and international galleries. Almost everyone had a bathroom show, and there were plenty of galleries we would never see again on the planet. Basically, it was a home-made art fair, on the cheap and using all the creativity artist and dealer could drum up for a 3 day run of fun, and maybe a sale or two.

The Mercer Street Medical Case (v1 part 1) 3:40

November 7th, 2011 • Paul H-O

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 »
