Ryan Adams auctioned off around 50 pieces for charity(with Jesse Malin's help). The quality of the art is a little scattered but I liked the majority of what i could see. There are a couple of very Basquiat like pieces that really sang to me and as rough as it is I totally dig the video game painting. I'm sure RA will catch a ton of shit for daring to do something other then make music but I doubt he gives a shit(for Christ's sake he's married to Mandy Moore). While the paintings are priced a bit high they are for charity so more power to him. Check it out here.

G and I went to the opening of Takashi Murakami's portrait exhibit here in Paris it was a really interesting exhibit but it had a very artificial feel to it. Today I found out that Murakami is exhibiting at Versailles in 2010, this could be very cool. The artificiality of Murakami's work will really go well within the over the topness of Versailles. If i'm still in the country I'll be there.
