Saturday morning comic: Casey At The Bat


This week I’m posting another gay comic strip that you may not be familiar with called  Casey At The Bat.  The comic strip follows the adventures of a young, gay man and his friends in life, love and sports!  Casey At The Bat is the work of the very talented Bob Glasscock who resides in NYC.  You can read back issues and order Casey At The Bat volume 1 from his website, caseyatb.com.

“Untitled” (Go-Go Dancing Platform), 1991

Felix Gonzalez-Torres, UCLA Hammer MuseumAre you one of those guys who doesn’t like going to museums?  Do you find them stuffy and boring? Maybe this exhibit in Los Angeles is more your speed.

Cuban artist, Felix Gonzalez-Torres’, takes the male body out of the gay club and into the museum. The installation at UCLA’s Hammer Museum consists of a lit-up platform, that is empty most of the time except for five minutes a day when a go-go dancer randomly appears. Unscheduled and unannounced, the performer dances to the music blaring from his headphones, inaudible to the guests at the museum. Not your typical installation for sure.

Thanks to Oscar Raymundo and his blog Confessions of a Boy Toy for bringing this story to my attention.
