If you are a contemporary art fan, you know Tauba Auerbach. She is getting bigger and better, with her scope and audience evolving at the same time. We met her a long time ago at the SF MoMA, and have always been fans. Tauba’s new project, “Quarry,” is a fence surrounding the lot where the Whitney Museum will build its downtown branch, at Gansevoort and Washington Streets… we are digging it.
A sad day in the comic world, as American Splendor’s Harvey Pekar has just passed away at age 70. He had been working on a new project with fellow comic artists at the Pekar Project, and just had an interview in Juxtapoz. We just talked to our friend at Jux who did the interview who passed the word on.
