2-17-14 Happy Alexander Hamilton Day

Truly idiotic and embarrassing or advertising scheme that proves there is such a thing as bad publicity…you be the judge.

I went to MOMA yesterday with a friend who wanted to see the Isa Genzken: Retrospective” and I wanted to see “A World of It’s Own: Photographic Practices in the Studio.” We both were interested in “There Will Never Be Silence: Scoring John Cage’s 4’33”

I took a few pictures of the Genzken Retrospective. I didn’t take any of the Photographic Practices since I am not a big believer in photographs of photographs unless you have a specific idea in mind and I did not take any of The Cage because, amusingly given his work and the work of his mentors and followers, photographs were not allowed. Insert visions of Fluxus and Dada giggling….

  1. I once had an argument with a buddy who insisted that he was a president. Even after I showed her all the presidents in order she didn’t believe me.

  2. This is such a great example of how content really doesn’t matter anymore. Has anybody called them on this idiotic ad? Besides you with your post? (And, I’m so jaded I’d almost bet they made the mistake on purpose to attract attention.)
