David Choe Comes to Los AngelesJuxtapoz // Thursday, 18 Feb 2010
David Choe has, once again, scheduled himself into overdrive. The notoriously mischievous artist will be opening a show in Los Angeles this April, right after his highly successful solo show in San Francisco closes.
Details on the exhibit are still materializing, but he had this to say on his blog about his upcoming show:
It’s been way too long los angeles, I’m sorry I had to leave in the first place, but you were really annoying the shit out of me, but I forgive you, I’m sorry I left you when you needed me most, I've seen these horrible atrocious art shows you’ve been subject to, I seen these wacked out gimmicky douchey group shows and art walks you been sexually and mentally harassed by, and I’m here to tell you, I’m coming soon, and maybe you’ll appreciate me and not take me for granted this time. lets make the dysfunction work for us, ok ? I promise to try harder if you try harder. It’s been 6 long years since my last show here when you fucked me and I left you. I was still doing shit like this last time I saw you.
In that time I seen things, I’ve heard things, I’ve felt things I’ve never felt before, I been hitching and bitching all over the globe , I been to Japanese jails, African jungles, Chinese torture chambers, the whitehouse, and to all 7 levels of hell and back.
this summer In April 2010 I will have my first solo art show in BEVERLY HILLS CALIFORNIA with Lazarides. I will take all my love all my hate all my pain all my rage, all my suffering and all my skills and experience I've collected over the years, and bring it to your doorstep, Los Angeles I’m coming home and when I come this time, I’m gonna come harder than I ever have before.
NOTHING TO DECLARE
BEVERLY HILLS, CA 90210
Also being released this summer is my first book in years, it’s my biggest baddest and best book yet.
I been working on this book for a decade and am really proud of it, it’s a 288 page hardcover beast from chronicle, save yourself a hundred thousand dollars of art school money, get the book, and you’ll learn everything you need to know from, ninja skills, brush skills, can control skills, pussy skills, $$$ skills and XXX skills.
