Mike Kelly at Gagosian

This turkey of an exhibition fits right into the holiday spirit. One of the most boring exhibitions I've ever seen. The notion of 100 Monkeys typing on typewriters for 100 years may by chance produce a great novel has an equvalent in the art world, to whit; give any artist six million dollars and they might produce good art. But then again they might not as is the case with this show. There are no photos because the guards at the exhibition (there must have been 10) prevented me from taking photos. I guess you'll just have to buy the expensive coffee table book on this exhibition. Remember the end of the eighties when the Neo-Excess movement was so FATUOUS. Yes, this show equals anything that Schnabel could produce.
