small room. bugs crawling. hunger takes hold.
This is Veronika Hurnik during a fundraiser for the AGO. She's an artist.
I opened a show a week and a half ago, and then spent all my time builing stuff for this event. It was gorgeous, but I'm sick of busting myself on this kind of thing. The evening was a great set of moments, played to a well-heeled crowd who use this place to store their priceless investments (80% of the AGO's holdings belong to private owners). It's a secure lockup for their art, and a good tax writeoff. I love the school, the access to art, and all that, but doing wacky / funky stuff for rich people who aren't really watching gets old sometimes.
