Jayson Musson (MFA '11 candidate) in Solo Exhibition at the Marginal Utility Gallery, Philadelphia, Opening February 4th, 6pm

Jayson Musson (MFA '11 candidate) will be featured in a solo exhibition at the Marginal Utility Gallery, Philadelphia. "Neoteny | The Hard Sell" is an exhibition of art stuffs by Musson. Whether or not you attend is of small consequence to the “artist” (the term is employed loosely here), because, as the artist puts it: “I stays paid anyway!” However, the veracity of this claim is highly questionable, as it is widely known that even though the artist is in his early 30’s, he still rents an apartment, not even an apartment by himself mind you, but rather he shares a two-bedroom apartment with a roommate (who is a much better artist than he). Also, the artist still rides a bicycle because he doesn’t have the least bit of self-control when it comes to the management of his personal finances so he is unable to save for even the most austere of auto vehicles. In fact, one time I was at his house, pardon me, I mean one time I was at his two-bedroom apartment he shares with a roommate, and the artist, a bit drunk, spent a surprising amount of time looking at lycra superhero costumes on ebay which he claimed he was going to use for a “sculpture”. Well, whatever sculpture you could make by purchasing a costume off of ebay is no sculpture I want to partake of. Not at all. Not. At. All. But perhaps you do. You strike me as someone who consumes art only in jpeg format (while I have laid beneath Olafur Eliasson’s sun at the Tate!), someone who doesn’t possess a single inkling as to what comprises a true work of art. If this is the case, and I know it is, then you would most likely find some kind of satisfaction in attending.

Oh, as per the artist’s request: please keep your children at home. Because children, unlike the divinely crafted snowflake, are not unique nor are they special, and children speak at a volume which is simply unacceptable within a gallery, and even though Marginal Utility is a non-profit gallery, the etiquette of a commercial, for-profit gallery must be adhered to lest our entire society fall apart at its most sacrosanct seams.
