Food Molestors and Momus’s Favorite YouTubes

12.10.10 Marina Galperina

Two shows at the Postmasters gallery have just opened. #1: Playlist (a response to Gug’s Play) unleashed the “archival richness” of the YouTubes, handpicked by a varied group artists, writers and musicians. Co-curator Paddy Johnson of Art Fag City tells me Momus picked this. Oh, Momus. #2: Eat Me is all about food lust, from Monica Cook’s painterly Monicas-on-Monicas-on-octopus orgy to Michael Meads’s literal fucking of food. “Playlist” and “Eat Me!,” Dec 9 – Dec 23, Postmasters, New York
