Reading and working on Sundays at Pocket U.
Libby Hartle worked at her residency station on Sunday while visitors read about Lawrence Weiner. Libby and Lawrence make a good pair.
The opening featured an awesome, very funny performance by Andrew Hurst. Could it be that it was the best opening because their was no "official" artist there to measure oneself against?? Everyone just thoroughly enjoyed themselves. There wasn't an ego to negotiate around. There was the art and the performance and a good time.
When I spoke with Lawrence Weiner about the salon, he said, "...thanks," and "I'm honored..." But really I'm the one that's honored to present his work and the other things that go on at Pocket U, and I'm the one that is thankful.
