Art openings are the worst. You line up outside for half an hour trying to squeeze into a Tokyo subway of a gallery and crane your neck over some chick with a free drink trying to see the art. After taking in maybe three pieces for 30 seconds, you get so claustrophobic you have to run outside and stand with dozens of other people who only came to this thing to be seen. Scott Campbell’s opening was a mob scene last night and you’re lucky you didn’t go. However, you can go any time Tuesday to Friday between 10 A.M. and 5 P.M. up until May 30th. His money sculptures have to be seen to be believed and when I say “seen” I don’t mean “Glanced at through a crowd.”

    wow nice stuff and so sadly true about gallery openings-this is why it’s best to see exhibits right before they’re taken down so you don’t have to deal with the fuckers who think art is mainly for socializing and looking good in its vicinity

    As a person who only goes to these things for the free drinks and hates fuckers like those of you who publicly bitch about how no one loves art as much as you (yet still sometimes go on the opening night–STOOPS), I would appreciate it if you would go after the opening as well. I would be way happier getting a buzz if I was confident that you were nowhere near me.

    Openings sometimes feature types of free food I have never tried before. If they just kept a menu at the gallery after the opening ceremonies, I could come by later, and then go buy the food.

    art openings are fine.

    NYC is so devoid of actual art or anything or anyone interesting that art openings are the only events where you can mingle with other artists and everyone isn’t totally depressed.

    you’re just bummed cuz this is NYC so there are actually hot chicks at the openings, making you look like a 4. Unlike say, LA or SF where art openings are 100% bros only and beefy roller derby rikki lake artfag hag types can feel like they are princesses.

    It’s true, SF art openings are like contest to see who can get laid the least.
