Duchamp did not 'drag' a toilet anywhere, although he did 'drag' later with Rrose Selavy. Duchamp allegedly had Stieglitz photograph a urinal at 291, though with the Hartley for backdrop and generic pedestal as prop, the image could have done anywhere. Seems you have a problem with critical criteria here, how can you avow and support the empty Koons, Hirst, Prince, Sherman, etc., and then turn around and disavow the empty Philips because he does not 'vibrate' like LFreud? Vibrate? Seems you waltzed into quite a sexually loaded term, especially for women. Explain.
Has anyone ever seen this artist? He seems to have done these paintings 4 years ago. Never got this attention, seems like another Jack Smith
Self aware vacuity isn't any different than vacuity, it's just dressed a little different.
Wealth that generates wealth isn't an idea, it's an observation.
That the show is basically impossible to take seriously from an artistic standpoint is a problem, but a lot of living contemporary artists show at Gagosian suffer from this. What's galling is that Phillips seems to think he's in the same league as Duchamp. It's just going to take a little bit of time for the rest of us to catch up with his bullshit. Give me a break.
just to play devil's advocate here: isn't total vacuity the point of his practice? his work feeds off of its own dissemination and celebrity status, such as his apparent decision to paint the most "popular" stills from the videos in this show. or, to use another example, a few years ago one of his pieces made a cameo appearance on "gossip girl" - a show about extreme wealth and conspicuous consumption - which was followed by his "most wanted" series, which featured a painting of "gossip girl" star taylor momsen on a background of the chanel logo (also in that series: robert pattinson on louis vuitton, taylor swift on givenchy, etc). the fact that it's superficial and conceptually shallow fits with the subject: wealth generates wealth ad nauseum.
with that said, there are many things i'd rather look at than an eleven-foot-tall painting of lindsay lohan with some gaussian blur. it's fitting that this show is at gagosian; another weird meme for the super rich.
this shows steals a little bit of my soul (and there's not much left after elizabeth peyton, jeff koons, richard prince have thieved.)

art is everything, everywhere, by anyone...it is unrecognized, unsupported, here today gone tomorrow, it is idea, real thing, a design for the future, a stumbling block that reveals itself only in sudden action...it throws us ahead of ourselves into an unrealized future...it is art. It is hope. It is not for sale (yet).
Thank you Paddy Johnson for the highest form of dada journalism. I am impressed.
I've found that making any joke about anything related to security or the security process in ear shot of a TSA employee is up there with vibrating luggage. Frustrating when the line is long, the process painful, the stress, worry and anger is so thick you can cut it with a nail-file 3 inches long or less.
Let's see those charts sometime!
"deeply flawed people tearing each other apart for no good reason"
hmmmm, sounds like the world in general............
girls gone wild
"which was that women have a tendency to fuck me who treat them like shit, rather than men who are nice to them (whether the nice guy is genuine or not)
Jimbeam, this is very correct but not all of the time. It's not our "animal" instincts but a "wired in" desire, just like a desire for water. It's Physiological.
Though this is a very old article, It's full of BS. Generally speaking, it's true that a man is "wired" to be the one who pursues sexual intimacy, but it's the woman who puts out the signals if she does/doesn't want the guy to talk to or be with her. Instinctive "moments" of attraction are so fast, sometimes the giver/receiver aren't aware of them. We refer to this as many things, such as "he's/she's hot, great looker", etc. Our brain chemicals do a lot of movements when we see an exciting person. The nucleus accumbens releases dopamine as the amygdala controls the emotions. As far as being friends with an opposite sex person, it's very difficult as these same chemicals operate in the "friend zone" to. A nice guy isn't a wimp, he's a confidant man who knows how to treat a woman whether she's laying down for him or not.
