Somebody’s Selling Reagan Blood, Because Apparently Somebody Wants Reagan Blood

by Whitney Kimball on May 24, 2012

There’s a line in the movie Manhattan where Woody Allen and Diane Keaton are discussing a Castelli show. You don’t see the work, but it goes kinda like this: “You liked the plexiglass sculpture? How about the steel box?” “The steel box was wonderful, it had a marvelous negative capability. The rest of the stuff downstairs was bullshit.” Josiah Mcelheny’s, Some thoughts about the abstract body, is kind of what you’d imagine that show to look like. [Andrea Rosen]

Following the T-Rex skeleton sale this week, another auction peddles a vial of Ronald Reagan’s blood, along with Bieber hair and Ally McBeal PJs. The sale of the blood was thwarted by the threat of legal action from the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation, which then lead the seller to donate the item to the Foundation.

The Art Handling Olympics

Calling all art handlers! The Art Handling Olympics wants you! Register your team of four on their website and go head to head with New York City’s best, Sunday March 21st. The first competition of its kind, The Art Handling Olympics (AHO) celebrates the art world’s unsung heroes. These are the people who figure out how to fit over-sized sculptures into undersized elevators, find the straight line in a crooked paintings on slanted walls and eat the double park ticket so clients don’t have to! This March we find out who the best in the business really are.

Competition founder Shane Caffrey says he’s pleased with AHO’s response thus far, and enjoys the team names handlers have come up with. “My favorite is “Well Hung” he told me through a bit of laughter. Knowing there’s a “Special Delivery” portion to the competition makes me think that group will need to bring a little more to the table for the win though. Nobody’s dick is going to drive a truck.

I’m told the competition is still selecting judges, so I’m taking the liberty of offering up a few suggestions of people I’d like to see participate. In no particular order those are: Mary Boone (dealer), Jeffrey Deitch (dealer), Jerry Saltz (critic, former trucker), Andrea Rosen (dealer), Brian Alfred (artist), Sue Schaffner (artist), Cynthia Yardley (artist + Atelier 4’s art fair and expo co-ordinator), Lauren Cornell, (Executive Director of Rhizome and Adjunct Curator for the New Museum).

*The Art handling Olympics is an event founded by Shane Caffrey, and brought to you by Ted Riederer, Nick Brooks, Hiro Sato, and Jay Ivcevich. Together they are the Olympic Committee.
