Opening day photos at PS1's George Kuchar exhibit PAGAN RHAPSODIES

 This is a shot of the entrance to the exhibit. George would have loved the red carpet! nice touch.


 Here I am with Mimi Gross & Peter Eleey. Peter curated the exhibit & Mimi is one of George's oldest & dearest friends. She has known George since he was just 18 years old. 50 years!
 Mimi & I were trying to enjoy the drink tickets given to us by Peter.. free is free.. but we were too emotional to hang out. But that beer was good!
Mimi & I as we exited PS1. Missing George. Oy Vey.

George Kuchar's I, An Actress joins the 2011 Film Registry!

I, An Actress will be preserved for future film buffs
at the Library of Congress!!!! FOREVER!!
Incredible. & very deserved!

I, An Actress has been getting lots of play in the past few years.  It was curated by Marc Siegel in the Berlin Biennale in 2009, and we showed it with David Gryn and Art Projx Cinema 2011 at the SVA Theater in conjunction with VOLTA & The Armory Show last March,  and that same weekend Ed Halter picked it to run before his amazing interview with George at VOLTA NY. It also shows daily on Youtube & at film festivals and the like.. but being part of the Film Registry is just a sublime achievement for George. Fantastic!!

ADA artist & friend, George Kuchar will be included in the 2012 Whitney Biennial!


George in his apartment in San Francisco in 2009. I loved being in his apartment. We'd watch videos. He'd make copies of videos for me on his DVD duplicator. We'd talk about his life & friends. Then we'd go eat.
I really wish he had lived to see the PS1 show & the Whitney Biennial. He'd greet everyone and say , "This is my show. Thanks for coming. I hope you enjoy it."

Go see George's show at PS1, PAGAN RHAPSODIES. Now through January 15.

"oooh, looks like a good show"

George Kuchar & Ada Gallery at NADA Miami



These are two comics by Ada artist George Kuchar on view with at our booth at the NADA Miami art fair going on now (December 1-4, 2011) at the . We have another large three panel comic piece, a biography of H.P.Lovecraft that was published in Arcade comics in 1975. There is a wonderful exhibit going on now through January 15th at MoMA PS1 that includes a great blowup of this work. We also have a great pastel work and George's last drawing which was done while he was in El Reno, Oklahoma this summer. 
We're obviously very sad about George's passing, but we are delighted to exhibit George's work at NADA and to have the chance to tell everyone willing to listen about how wonderful & important he was & still is.

George Kuchar (American, 1942-2011) was among the most prolific and influential American filmmakers of the last half century. His more than two hundred low-budget films, many made with his twin brother, Mike, regularly feature his friends and students, pioneering a camp aesthetic that has inspired generations of filmmakers and artists. Based in San Francisco since the early 1970s, where he taught for four decades at the San Francisco Art Institute, Kuchar grew up in New York City, in the Bronx, where he began his career, before resettling in California in 1971.
