Friday’s Hairy Eyeball: Lance Armstrong auction, Damien Hirst multiples, Van Gogh letters
Friday’s Hairy Eyeball; processing the tricking of acrid art world sap, one noxious drop at a time.
To benefit Performa 09, daughter of Miami’s Don and Mera Rubell, party designer Jennifer Rubell hosted “Creation” a food binge held at X Initiative in Chelsea, where what appeared to be just gluttony (3,600 drinking glasses, a pyramid of unshelled peanuts and 2,000 pound hillock of honey-soaked ribs) was in fact art.

As next Friday is perhaps a little short notice we thought we would also mention The Reading Room, a monthly event (November 13 and December 11) in the Children’s Room at Miami Dade Public Library where visitors can get up close and personal with artist books. Next Friday at noon The Reading Room will feature artists’ publications and multiples from [NAME] Publications, a Miami-based non-profit founded by Gean Moreno in 2008. Special guests include Beatriz Monteavaro, Gean Moreno, and Kathleen Hudspeth.
