And a visit to Jeff Koons at the Pompidou.

Hi again... I thought I'd make a double post on McCarthy and Koons mixing each other's images to talk about the opposite sides of Pop Art that these artist represent, but finally I decided I wouldn't "pollute" the integrity of McCarthy with Koons' kitsch. 

They're like Ying and Yang and not just apparently. Koons expo, as his work, is comforting but only superficially. There's something dark about his whole work while McCarthy's brutal honesty I find it pure.

A visit to Paul McCarthy's Chocolate Factory at la Monnai de Paris.

Dear Diane, dear shaded viewers...

I thought you'd might like to check out what Paul McCarthy's show in Paris looks like. We all know what happened to his Xmas tree at Place Vendome and actually the show partially rotates around the agression he suffered the sculpture and the artist himself: there are not only chocolate sculptures -created "in situ" by performers- that are storaged all over the different rooms, but also videos and posters where the artists obsessively writes about that incident.

I can't help wondering how the exhibition was profiled before the agression.
