Gary told me a story many years ago about Jack Smith, who got a grant of several thousands of dollars to finish his movie, Normal Love. Well, he took the money down to the Bowery and spent it all on a giant crystal chandelier for his funky loft. Isn’t that an exquisite art gesture?
So what did I do today with the money I made at the Whitney? I got my nose pierced with the BIGGEST DIAMOND STUD they had at New York Adorned.
In honor, I guess, of Jack Smith.
