Today was the big show at MOCA. My girl had a piece in the SICKNASTY show that was an adjunct to the Murakami exhibit. That piece will go into a larger, multi-school showing after the 2nd, which is when the SICKNASTY thing wraps up.
I am not sure what we'll be doing with it when it comes home from the museum. I don't think I want a 5' tall mushroom with huge googly eyes, in my living room. It might put me off my morning tea. It might even, dare I say it, displace yarn.
Some of the work was quite directly derivative of Murakami's work - I think the grrl's piece is a good example of this. Other pieces were somewhat indirect - they took themes of media and pop culture and then made pieces around those themes with a sort of Murakami twist.
I am not sure what is going on with my grandfather's funeral. I'll be heading up to Modesto at some time within the next 3-10 days, I am sure, but aside from that, I have no clue what is going to happen. All I've wanted to do for the last two days is sleep. Family can be difficult.
