about bureaublogBureauBlog is your secret gateway to the innerworld of Moss Bureau. Behind the scenes, through the looking glass, up the down staircase, over the rainbow, all around the town. Our town. Any town. We cover the bureau-front, from top to toe, prow to stern, sea to shining see. We open the drawers, and draw our own conclusions. The designers, the artists, the interns, friends and foes, clients and miscreants, consultants and co-defendants, conmen and trangendereds, the Fairs and the unfair, the good fight and the bad lieutenant, lies, truths, massive cover-ups, mitigating circumstances, plausible deniabilities. The undercooked and the overlooked. Wet-work, dry wall, the dog, the pony, the smoke and the mirrors. We pull the wrapper off the snapper, look down the barrel, and open Pandora's box of worms. Fearless, feckless, and born to run. Sometimes a cigar really is just a cigar. Think different. It's later than you think.

Here’s the situation, friends and readers. Victoria Strong is a twenty year friend. We used to work together back in the old TV days. She’s smart, funny, resiliant and one of the good ones. Her life is now fucked nearly beyond comprehension, with a list of medical issues that would have killed someone less determined years ago. Click on the photo and you can read the full terrible story, and you’ll see that she’s asking for help. You’ve never heard of her. But if you’ve ever felt you should pay it forward, for something someone did for you, here’s your chance. Help her if you can.
They’re nice enough, I suppose, for paint on canvas. And naked is always good, of course, though doesn’t it sort of cheapen the whole effort? I don’t know. I guess I was expecting more.
Well, now we’re cooking. Do you know how hard it is to get aluminum to do this? It’s practically impossible. This is what you want dancers to be. Graceful, elegant, oversized, empty, and able to cut you if you get too close.
This vote isn’t even close.
If anyone has any money left, after Christies last night, then bring it over to Moss Bureau. Our Danseurs cost way less than $58M.
For that same $58M, you could buy more than 4000 of these Danseurs. Or you could if they were not unique pieces.
Les Danseurs du Tailor. Still dancing. Still aluminum. Still amazing. Friday at Moss Bureau 6 to 8. Anyway, Frieze is over. What else do you have to do?
Marc Fornes will be on hand to talk about the process. All we know is that it involves a LOT of people working a LONG time. All for you. Don’t miss it. You only regret what you don’t do. I think Joyce Brothers said that. RIP, by the way.
It’s safe to say you have seen NOTHING like this. Even at the famous fabulous fucking FRIEZE. Next reception: a Matinee on Tuesday May 14 3pm to 5pm. Don’t be the only one not to have seen it. You know how you get.
