Tape Turns To Blue


The new Christian Marclay show at Paula Cooper is surprising in it's elegant beauty. I'm a huge Christian Marclay fan but I don't think I've ever used the word "elegant" in describing his work until now, but this show deserves it. And the details in the hanging gardens of Marclay's landscapes are a world of fun for the nostalgia-fiend in you. I've never met a dead tape I didn't like, especially when their afterlife looks this good.

Maybe it's a metaphor for the demise of Muxtape :) http://muxtape.com/
