Damn! BAM’s Silent Auction offerings this year are really good. Hope Atherton, Julie Heffernan, Deborah Kass, Dana fucking Schutz – they really landed some great artists for their upcoming benefit March 18-28. The whole catalogue can be viewed here and can be viewed in person at in the Peter Jay Sharp Building lobby at 30 Lafayette Avenue, Brooklyn, but rest assured, I’ll be posting closer to the auction’s closing. Today I leave readers with the warm and fuzzy Terence Koh below. Nothing says giving like an anal bone probing.
