Back from Miami...

De La Cruz Collection Link

Miami and Beijing possess an abundance of private museum spaces.
The De La Cruz Collection, which focuses on sculpture, is truly gorgeous.

Sterling Ruby, from the fall duo with Lucio Fontana at Andrea Rosen

Sterling Ruby, stalagmite and cloth painting
He was a TA for Mike Kelley at Art Center

Thomas Houseago, rear view (Houseago lives LA, as does Ruby)

John Pylypchuck (also lives in LA)
The clock on the wall piece is shaped like a head

Beautiful, long tears

The bedraggled aesthetic, seen close to--
Reminiscent of Kelley's stuffed animal works and the 1990s discussion on abjection:
a way to integrate the more vulnerable parts of the self.
