Hazard's Art Business

Art Business: 871 Fine Arts: Performance Photographs from the 1970's, Including Works by Dieter Appelt, Joseph Beuys, Coum Transmission, Hermann Nitsch, and Ulay.

Comment: I am exhausted with this war art. Time for a refreshing neocortical bender at 871 Fine Arts. It's where the pros go to chow down on arcane art world minutiae, in this case, Performance Photographs from the 1970's.

So here we all are, the conversation has somehow dribbled onto the topic of circumcision, when in walks one Dr. Patrick D. Hazard, fresh off the plane from Weimar via Philadelphia, a pure performance piece in and of himself, who lets fly with a spontaneous rip on why the Bauhaus was a flop, citing Mies van der Rohe and his drafty kitchens as incontrovertible proof.

I would have taken a few pics of the show had I not been glazed in stunned amusement by Hazard's self-propelled monologue. So without further ado, please join me in welcoming the distinguished Dr. Hazard...
