In September of 2001 I packed up my New York life of over ten years, stuffed it into a U-Haul and moved to Los Angeles. The contents of that truck included all kinds of evidence and ephemera from my time as a gallerist in NYC. There were some really cool original pieces of art in there, but it mostly consisted of things like prints, posters, furniture, extension cords, cassette tapes, magazines, books, skateboards, and thousands of other random things that at the time I just couldn’t let go of. After a few months of being on the West Coast, the entire contents of that truck got dumped into an anonymous storage space in Glendale where it has remained now for over ten years. Each month I diligently send a check to pay for this big black box of 1990′s memories…but the time has come to end those shenanigans. The idea of keeping all this evidence of my old life in storage no longer sounds attractive to me. There are some amazing things in there that I’m sure people will like and it makes no sense to keep hoarding. So, ladies and gentleman, my loss is your gain. Starting July 7th, for two weeks only we will be staging a fire sale at Known Gallery. The ark will be opened and its contents placed on glorious display for all to marvel at. Who knows? There might even be something in there you wanna take home!
