more than 15 min o fame

okay, it's feb, so it must b warhol?

he is @the sjma from yesterday, valentine's day through sun, 31 may 2009.

he is also @the de young (w/similar dates, 2: 14 feb through sun, 17 may 2009).

& last but not least, he is @the canter (through 19 apr 2009).

so far, i've only casually checked out the 60 prints @the sjma. i'm not sure if i'm underwhelmed or it's because i grew up w/all his images/influence. in any case, i'm going back 2 c them again.

it's great that he is @3 locations... although something seems weird about premanufactured presold shows (& in 3 locations)–like the hidden body or titanic or da vinci or vivienne westwood–put in metreon or tech museum, but not a "real museum"—curate something new. i'm going anyway, & i guess they know that.

btw, above is a what the sjma lower galleries looked like in prep last week. funny thing, i thought it was an actual sculpture, like the weird leaning guy at the canter.

Shows my age: I remember UC Irvine had a show of his work back in the 80's, I happened by to see it at the same time now one else was there, save the artist himself and a chaperon. Very weird experience - tiny man, looking much older then his years in his outrageous wig. Me, being shy, just orbited the exhibit without any interaction.
