From The Armory Show Lost & Found Dept.

From my friends Michael Elmgreen & Ingar Dragset comes a show, er, a work that could be titled, Untitled (Hah, made you look!). Right before they left town--and after the opening of their installation at the Bohen Foundation--the artists installed a piece at The Wrong Gallery, Maurizio Cattelan, Mass Gioni, and Ali Subotnick's foot-deep-gallery-in-a-doorway, next to Andrew Kreps.

They dressed a Mini with all the paraphrenalia of a long trip abandoned--maps, lotion, crumbs and change on the floor--and a sleeping baby in the backseat. The car's been collecting parking tickets all week; I guess the show will end whenever DOT decides to tow it.

Or else... It just occurred to me that there's a women's prison on the corner. Maybe the baby mama is in there doing some firm--if not hard--time.

[update: Someone apparently called 911 on the baby in the car, because NYPD come to investigate this afternoon.]

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
