We just spotted Rob building an awesome package around one of Adia Millett's sculptures, looking noteworthy enough for a Rob Carter Packing Award. Yet, Rob Carter REJECTED the award because the packaging doesn't quite live up to his standards. No photos will be posted, sadly, because the packaging doesn't meet the Rob Carter Award Standards. Whomp

Our next exhibition - "A Great Piece of Turf" by Kim Beck - includes lots and lots of work on paper. Today Rob basically set up a mini framers work station and framed over two dozen drawings!
First you assemble the frame bars..
and then you attach the work to a backing,
place the backing in the frame and seal it off.
just like that!

I dedicated last Friday to seeing art. First stop The Met, then down to the Lower East Side. Here are a few scenes from the LES:
Yarn grafitti on Ludlow.
Checking out the plans for the Low Line
Installation at Lehman Maupin
at Thierry Goldberg
's phallic-tastic show at Participant
Last but certainly not least, Rob Carter
's exhibition at Station Independent
. This is a crap photo because there were visitors and an interview going on in the gallery and I didn't want to cause a scene to get a good shot! Amazing show. CHECK IT OUT.

Photographer and video artist, Rob Carter

Cut photographic images and living plants are used to reengineer histories - morphing and recontextualizing architecture, urban development, and cultural traditions.

An injured Rob Carter
has found a way to style-up his cast: with modified Mixed Greens gloves.
With his broken hand he hammers away, using a crowbar to break through the wall. (This proved of course to be too painful, and Courtney had to take over)
Jennifer Marman & Daniel Borins
install their wall sculpture, "Google 2.0". You can check it out in person beginning tomorrow, 6-8pm, at Mixed Greens

This FUN DAY
photo was sent it to us by world-traveler, Rob Carter
. Rob did want to make clear that he was not participating in the above "event", but was merely an observer. I felt it fitting to post today since most of the outfits above look a lot like the costumes that Ricky's
is selling for Halloween.
Fun Day reading list:
Maybe not such a good idea
to have a wedding ceremony in a language that you don't understand. Same rule applies for tattoos.
Another SHOUT OUT
to Coke O'Neal
for his exciting news
about the 25 for 25 AOL Grant!
