Angela de la Cruz, Super Clutter XXL (Pink and Brown)
To the the DCA this evening for the opening of Altered States of Paint, which despite having a bloody awful title actually contains some interesting work. The big news, though, is that as part of the supporting film program none other than the legendary underground film-maker Kenneth Anger will be giving a talk! In Dundee of all places! I'm still getting to grips with this information. Could it really happen?
Earlier today, following a link on Dennis Cooper's blog, I encountered for the first time the work of another precociously gifted American film-maker with a camp aesthetic. Have a look at this from Ryan Trecartin; you really should be impressed. At least a little bit, anyway.
