3 Years in the MoMA Bathroom

They claim that the show is unprecedented, however, I am able to say that, in fact, a slightly smaller group show exhibited in the MoMA bathroom back in 2005.

Here I am, hanging the 2005 show, which consisted of work by then unknown artists- Justin Solitrin and Ali Sable. (photo credit Dave Londres)

Carney, Lawrence, Hartshorn, and Sigurthorsdottir were a bit better prepared, offering an artist statement and website to go along with their exhibition, but it does not look like they were as meticulously well-hung as the Solitrin/Sable retrospective. This is what the SVA students had to say:

This unprecedented and flexible group show, occurring only in the fifth floor MoMA restrooms, represents a move toward both realism and intimacy in the viewing of artworks in an institutional setting. An aspect of mystery is inherent in the very structure of the show, due to the simple fact that one cannot see all the works without entering both the women’s and men’s rooms. Works consist of photography, drawing, sculpture, installation and performance. The exhibition took place on April 4, 2008, from 6:00 pm to 6:26 pm

As for me… although I can claim a show that pre-dates “Down to Nature”, I cannot claim an original haircut…

As seen here, Tony Danza laid the groundwork for the above-pictured MoMA bathroom haircut of 2005.

    If I recall correctly, you were pretty stubborn about keeping your hair “long.”

    And as I told Kyle, Teddy Ruxpin’s adventures can be currently found in the $5 DVD bin at your local walmart.
