JK Fake Myspace
I saw on James Kalm's latest youtube entry (the Rirkrit Tiravanija one) that some jokesters are going to openings impersonating him, and have even set up a Myspace account. That's my photo they used! It's a picture of Steve Kaplan (not James Kalm) giving my painting a double thumbs-up, at the opening for a show I was in at Dumbo Arts Center.
I wonder if they are putting their videos on the internet somewhere... they might be funny. Maybe they do the bike thing even.
"Nate Lowman, a pretty downtown totem seemingly welcomed as a royal at New Museum events, hovered outside, collecting his crew. 'Is this necessary?' he huffed petulantly, pointing at the growing crowd of fireman and cops improvising a solution to the three-alarm blaze around the corner..."
This is the same William Pym that got upset when I negatively compared the show of a friend of his to Nate L. and Dan Colen's last Maccarone show. I think we unintentionally started the biggest drama thread on the Philly artblog...
