Anyway, It’s always the other guy who dies. - Marcel Duchamp, the epitaph he wrote for his own grave I wanted, but failed to want enough, to write this using the I Ching (the Chinese Book of Changes that divines through complex recipes for chance) as Cage did to compose his own words upon the death of Marcel Duchamp.

The theme of the Walker Art Center’s exhibition “The Quick and the Dead” got personal, quickly, when I observed that an On Kawara date painting near the entry was the same date as an uncle’s birthday. Made by Kawara to mark the passage of time, the ongoing series implies its own end in the artist’s death, just as birthdays imply to many of us that there are only so many left.

Low Life Slow Life, an exhibit curated by Paul McCarthy at the CCA Wattis Institute of Contemporary Arts is billed as showcasing “a wide range of artists and artworks related to memories from McCarthy’s career.” In this sense, the result is very true to its word. Vitrines filled with ephemera from McCarthy’s own collection are scattered throughout the Wattis’s downstairs gallery. Included are record albums by Karlheinz Stockhausen, coffee-table size books on Happeni... [more]
