:D :D Andrew was at the hospital the day his nieces were born and let me tell you,,, even this boy almost lost his cool and disconnected facade when Aaron told him he was naming the first girl Andrea :´^) Neil had to drag him outside for a cigarette. And sPEAKING of cigarettes,,, he claims that no pro coach is going to tolerate his chainsmoking habit and that he better just stop now, but you KNOW that these little munchkins are the real reason he stopped,, he took one look and realized he didn’t want anything bad to touch them ever,,,,, not even the curling wisps of smoke that he found so comforting

Now on view, Projects 102: Neïl Beloufa is the artist’s first solo New York museum exhibition. Created especially for this exhibition, The Colonies (2016) was made by hand, using inexpensive construction materials and techniques. The video at the center of the installation features a group of people in an unnamed city enthusiastically describing their experience there. Beloufa often works collaboratively, and in this instance he teamed up with actors to generate scripts that imitate popular forms like infomercials and science fiction.
