    Capital Gallery: Jennifer West - Golden Conversion

    Comment by AB: Jennifer West takes strips of 70mm film and manually creates film versions of life in the digital age starring those ubiquitous celebrities, the emojis, and co-starring everything from slashes, staples and spray paint to kitty litter and salt. The ensuing bouillabaisse serves up kinda nice.

    Mirus Gallery: The Most Famous Artist - Desirable Goods

    Comment by AB: Los Angeles Artist Matty Mo christens himself The Most Famous Artist and proceeds to gaslight the art world with his wacky cascade of put-ons. Sometimes crass, occasionally lewd and other times silly, at least it's expensive.
