Full details about the #Speak4RAINN15 campaign.
Please help rape survivors speak up and heal! Giving $15 will change a life.

If you’re able, I hope you’ll join me in supporting Laurie Halse Anderson’s made-of-awesome #Speak4RAINN15 campaign. Make a donation to RAINN, the U.S.’s largest anti-sexual violence organization, and you can get signed posters/books/etc.
It’s hard to believe that Speak is now fifteen years old. It remains a hugely important book to me both professionally and personally, and this is a great chance to say thanks while also supporting RAINN’s vital work.

THE DAILY PIC: This is the trace of Marcel Duchamp’s heartbeat, recorded 48 years ago today by a doctor named Brian O’Doherty, better known by far as a critic and conceptual artist (often under the pseudonym Patrick Ireland, assumed in honor of his homeland’s struggles with England). The heartbeat is on display in a lovely little survey of some of O’Doherty’s output, shared between Simone Subal gallery in New York and a nearby gallery called “P!”
Duchamp’s EKG is one element in what went on to become O’Doherty’s 16-part “portrait” of the great Dada artist, which also includes a kinetic light sculpture that seems to reproduce the oscillograph trace of Duchamp’s heart actually beating. (That piece is also at Subal’s). And the composite portrait is evidence of a precariously balanced love-hate relationship that O’Doherty had with its subject – the relationship all ambitious artists have with their most important forerunner.  
Duchamp once said that “after twenty years [artworks] are finished. Their life is over. They survive all right, because they are part of art history, and art history is not art. I don’t believe in preserving, I think as I said that a work of art dies.” In his portrait, O’Doherty self-consciously set out to prove Duchamp wrong, by making a piece that would keep the Frenchman’s presence and legacy – and heartbeat – “alive” wherever and whenever the portrait is shown. “I’ve made Duchamp live 250 years; It’s very cruel, but he deserved it,” O’Doherty told me after a talk that he gave at Subal’s.  But of course O’Doherty’s cruelty is also a gesture of absolute homage, from O’Doherty to a genius – and a friend – upon whom he wished endless life.
It has often been said that a fine portrait confers as much immortality on its maker as on its sitter. But the question here is whether we are contemplating a portrait of Duchamp or by him – drawn in fact with each beat of his heart. We sometimes come across someone whom we bill as an artist through and through, in every fiber of their body, and maybe here we’re seeing Duchamp prove that he’s one. (Image – margins cropped for clarity – is courtesy the artist, P! and Simone Subal Gallery)
The Daily Pic also appears at blogs.artinfo.com/the-daily-pic. For a full inventory of past Daily Pics visit blakegopnik.com/archive.

Interesting to think about in the context of The Art Assignment Episode 4: Never Seen, Never Will. A beating heart. In particular, the beating heart of one of the greatest artists.

I had the chance to talk with a group from Teens Living with Cancer in Rochester, New York recently. I’ve met a lot of young people with cancer in the years since TFIOS was published, but it’s uncommon to have the kind of support and camaraderie provided by TLC. I hope there will be more places like it in the years to come.
Check them out on facebook or twitter.

Sarah and I dressed up in our finery for the MTV Movie Awards. Weird but very fun.
