Reuse 3.0

one of bassem mansour's installations. i love artwork that lends itself to reinterpretation.


I went to Reuse 3.0 last night and really loved it. I was supposed to stay for fifteen minutes, thirty tops, but ended up staying for almost two hours. I had forgotten what the buzz was like last year, so last night I was reminded. I’ll certainly think about doing it next year (if I’m asked on time, ahem ahem. Not being a diva here, but despite being an artist-or so I like to consider myself to be-I do believe in a degree of professionalism. There I said it!) Anyway, don’t miss it! If not for the innovative and inspiring works, then for the eccentric cluster of people under one parking lot roof. Abdulrazzak Al Shamaly’s charcoal graffiti can monster. He asked me which i preferred out of the two works he had there. I told him they were both different but I lied. I far prefer this one to the other, which looked too much like your typical lower back/right above the buttcrack tattoo.
