A Short Life of Trouble: Forty Years in the New York Art World
TRYHARDER has been on the hunt for some interesting, non-snooze-inducing summer art reading. Generally, the big corporate chains haven't been having much of an art criticism selection in stock so I popped into the bookstore over at the Space15Twenty. Very substantial assortment and on par with the Hammer bookstore. I was also in Malibu yesterday and stopped into some random bookstore where you know, the celebs go to get all their books - as I was hoping TMZ would finally snap TRYHARDER, but they had a book about the first woman curator of The Whitney Museum, Marcia Tucker. The cover caught my attention - biker, chic, NY and oh yeah...trouble!
