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.

There’s a big 3-D printing conference in Pittsburgh (called RAPID 2013) coming up and Murray has curated an installation for Materialise Belgium which will be the Conference opening night event. It’s at the Andy Warhol Museum and you can’t go. Because it’s only for Conference attendees. Sorry. It’s really really too bad you can’t go because it’s going to be groundbreaking and very cool. For instance, this red bust is of London milliner extraordinaire Stephen Jones, and it’s one of four, different colors, one for each of four continents, and it’s an example of how amazing the resolution of 3-D printing can be now. And look at the pedestal–this is the first time one has been printed without internal support. You probably don’t know why this is such an innovation, but then, what do you know? You can’t even go to the installation. Click here for more info on the installation and RAPID 2013. Click the photo, then enlarge to see how unbelievable the resolution can be now.
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.
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.
Three (count’em) three artist receptions: Saturday (11th), 6 to 8, Tuesday (14th) 3 to 5, Friday (17th) 6 to 8. Come meet the Danseurs. And just to clarify, there is NO PERFORMANCE. This is an installation. A wonderful installation. If we say so ourselves.
Les Danseurs du Tailor have arrived at the Bureau, shrouded in blankets and wrapped in plastic for their perilous journey from deepest DUMBO. Our crack team of installers will be unwrapping and hanging and crimping until they are all dancing together in a state of frenzied abandon.
First up Murray and Francois are in front of the cameras, with the Glass House behind them, being interviewed for the film of the Conversation.
And this is toward the end of the tour of the grounds, when the group finally gets to go inside the House. That’s a newly installed piece by Tauba Auerbach on the coffee table, amidst the Mies furniture.
