Aaron Bondaroff—a k a A-ron, the Downtown Don, a k a one of the co-founders of Ohwow art gallery, a k a “the original 30-something LES hipster,” as Gawker put it—is entering politics. Ohwow is teaming with the chic political group Downtown for Democracy to publish a small pamphlet called the Pocket Guide to Politics. It will be released on May 1, and Dan Colen, Aurel Schmidt and Terry Richardson are involved. Read More

The line for the Terry Richardson show “MOM DAD” at Half Gallery on Friday was a clamoring, clustering thing, attractive people waving and desperate to squeeze into a space that, true to its name, isn’t very big. It was a bit like the opening of a nightclub, with everyone trying to be aloof and desperate at the same time, though there was very little order to it. Half Gallery owner Bill Powers came to the front from time to time and poked his pink sunglasses glasses around the door frame to point to people who were cool (e.g. “James!”—James Frey, of course).
