Leo Koenig and Greg Bogin with Zefrey Throwell on Frank Prattle

Leo Koenig (Leo Koenig Inc.) and Greg Bogin (artist)

A mere two hours before Greg Bogin’s show opened at Leo Koenig Inc. on 23rd st. in Chelsea, I swung by and tangoed with these two as they both fought off the pre-show jitters. We spun quite a yarn on this one, from naked high school dreams, to the realities of expansion in an age of shrinkage, to the idea of perfection, to triathlons, trust amongst artists and gallerists, and the raucous and infamous Leo Koenig crew.

Dynamite! (other than some cell phone static… sorry about that)

On a dreary day, when the Soho streets were filled with floating rats and soggy trash, I had the chance to sneak up to Marilyn Minter’s cozy studio and chat with her for a bit about her upcoming show at Salon 94. We covered a lot of turf, from the difference between being turned on to being seduced , to billboards and videos in Times Square, to the hot white light of success and how not to deal with it, to the age old policy of No Smiling Before Christmas. This one is truly delightful, listen along and also make sure to check out the trailer for her new video: HERE
