Art that can be construed as supporting LGBTQ+ rights
Stephen Lauf

While I'm in Philadelphia quietly celebrating the 248th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, I can't help but be mindful of the fact that this entire exhibition--Art that can be construed as supporting LGBTQ+ rights--is presently illegal in Russia for supporting an international terrorist movement.


Conceptual Still Life, Inspirationally Speaking

From The Discovery of Piranesi's Final Project:
4 July 2023   Tuesday
If I could, I'd go to Meetings at Abington Friends--"I came here today exactly as Miers Fisher and his family came here in the early 1800s, because, I presently live exactly where Miers Fisher and his family lived when they came here."
And then thinking about an email [that never happened] to Artforum International--"The most interesting new historical architecture thinking you'll read in the next four months is likely the conclusion to The Discovery of Piranesi's Final Project." and "Never in my wildest imagination did I ever think my first actual museum exhibition showing would be at the House of Culture, Moscow, within Stellar Revenge, October 2023." and "Trust me, no one is buying Mary Boone's 180 hours of community service at a steal."
Hearing Gato Barbiari and distant fireworks at the same time was nice tonight.
"My connection to Russia, ultimately."
At 21:19 on 21 January 2023 I texted, "Thanks so much for talking today. I needed at least a little highlight. And speaking of highlights, I just came up with my next book, an autobiography: 10 Years Working in a Soviet Labor Camp (in Southern Ukraine) is in My DNA. Talk about predestination!"
