Comic book superheros the X-Men settle in the Bay Area in the just-released 500th issue of the Uncanny X-Men. Although they aren’t artists in residence at the Headlands Center for the Arts, they are making their base in the concrete bunkers beneath the Marin Headlands.
The X-Men seem to acclimate quickly to the culture of the Bay Area by joining in a protest of a controversial art installation at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
Speaking of controversy, local blogger Thomas Hawk was ejected from the museum last week for supposedly shooting a “down blouse” shot of an employee. You can follow the drama here and here. Yesterday the SFMOMA issued a formal response here. There hasn’t been this much drama of man vs. museum since art critic Kenneth Baker took on the Chihuly exhibit at the de Young .
On the topic of photography, the SFMOMA recently changed their policy to allow photographers to take pictures of the permanent collection, the architecture of the building, and the museum’s public spaces. Woohoo!

Count Thy Buttons. This should be good.
Our friend Dil has an opening at the Gallery Bar in NYC tomorrow night. Stop by, take in the art, say what’s up and enjoy.
The Signed By Network is rather strange. Steve Wozniak, Frank Kozik, and Robert Williams all in some umbrella corporation ‘signed memorabilia’ racket. The voiceovers are exceptionally weird. The Woz floppy disk is pretty dope though.

I wish this video was on YouTube or some video site and bigger. Whatever, the modern master talks graffiti and shows slides for 30 plus minutes and that is good enough.
