SFMOMA

I went to the museum of modern art in san francisco yesterday. It was pretty sweet. They had this kick ass Chuck Close exhibit. They also had an exhibit by Kiki Smith, an artist I had never experienced before. She was pretty awesome too. She had one sculpture of a person on their knees with a 12 foot long log of poo sticking out of the butthole:

They call that art?!? I should have taken a picture of what I did yesterday; I could have sold it for hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Off topic--I am not ashamed, by the way. I like Moonstruck, I like Will and Grace. I cried the first 3 times I saw The English Patient. So what? I can't fit into the little mold of perfection you've carved for me in your mind, OK? OK?!?!?!?!?!?!

I'm a huge Chuck Close fan, but this Kiki Smith can blow it out her ass. Literally.

I'm so down with a little penance

spinner: Are they trying to claim that this is as good as a boticelli!?!?

broooke and spinner: They call it abject art. I love art that makes you feel uncomfortable or makes you wonder what art is.

bill: I know you are.

spinner: I didn't know what that second paragraph was about until I went to your blog. I'll respost here what I put there:

Don't ever be ashamed of what you like spinner. If people don't like it, they can go fuck themselves. To paraphrase something from the "high fidelity" novel: It doesn't matter what you liike, but rather what you ARE like.

Jiggs...wow!
That picture is almost as disturbing as the one I have on my post.

I love museums though, must have been fun.

Spinning Girl said...

My apologies. I thought it was you who criticized my choices, but it was that douche BadGod. I supplicate myself before you.

Thank you for accepting me as I am.

And no, my little rant was not a feeble attempt to pimp my own blog here in jiggsland! I am nobody's whore!

Oh Kiki, you have fallen for that myth... shit and they will come.

Um... I love Chuck Close. I'm tired tonight. Make me sleep. Please

how the fuck did everyone know that i modeled for that sculpture???

Nick said...

It's so Jiggs-like.

jiggs said...

lee ann: I really liked this sculpture. I wish I had had a camera on me to take a picture of me with it.

spinner: Don't you work at the bunny ranch?

monkey: I wish I could make you sleep. Wait, I know, let me tell you my thoughts on onions.

jamwall: poo is a dead give away

nick: It is jiggs like in that it's about subserviance and poo.

jiggs said...

I should also add that I don't know how to spell subservience.

I love Art museums! They get my creative juices flowing. he he
As an artist I tend to be a little critical, but I am all about freedom of expression!

jiggs said...

tumbleweed: I hear that.
