Weekend picks for Nov 5-6

Guerrero Gallery: Copypasta, copy paste, pasta copy, pasty copy. Etymologically, the “pasta” component of the term is a playful turn on the word “paste,” which can also define a particular mixture of pigment and binder, while the “copy” component speaks to the act of reproducing semblances, an experience, or an emotional reaction. Despite its origins within the virtual space of an online message board, “copypasta” has a capacity for deconstructing and simplifying how painting operates. Similarly, the artists within Copypasta gracefully distill painting down to a set of base components—those of symbolic communication, labor and materiality.

Adam Beris, William Emmert & Isaac Vazquez Avila

What in the world is going on with the art that was supposedly given to the electrician who worked for Picasso? Picasso's heirs have gone after the old boy like a shark going after red meat.

Picasso’s heirs, not content with their billions, are going after the little guy and Jacqueline, now deceased, one of Picasso’s widows:
