"I love Marilyn Minter. I met her many years ago through our dogs. We used to hang out together at the dog-run on Houston Street and Greene Street. I love this picture she took of Tom Ford's "kitchen". My hilarious friend Joey Arias taught me many years ago that a "kitchen" is the vintage African-American expression/slang word for the nape of one's neck. Joey always would say to me, "Hey, Kim is your kitchen 'itchen?". Tom's kitchen looks very sexy in this photo. I love it."
The 8: Kim Hastreiter
What is your line of work?
Sometimes I'm known as the co editor and publisher of Paper Magazine, but I think of myself as an idea machine.
If you could own any work of art, which one would you choose?
In the world? I would love to own a giant scary Cindy Sherman clown piece. In this show? I'd love the McDermott & McGough, "THE END" piece.
What is your earliest memory of art?
My Mother schlepping to a farm in Connecticut to buy a George Rickey mobile; I fell in love with it.
Which museum/foundation would you like to be locked in one night?
MOCA, right now at Art in the Streets. I would sleep in one of Barry McGee's shacks he built under Espo's big hand-painted signs. Or maybe I would just fall asleep in the back of Mister Cartoon's ice cream truck after eating tons of the candy that is on the floor.
