The Gay Agenda


By Joseph Hassan

Wednesday, October 8: Here's something a little different for art connoisseurs (or those looking for a pricey but darling new pad). Venezuela-born contemporary artist David Foote is currently presenting 'In Residence,' an exhibition at the penthouse of 20 PINE The Collection, new residences that bill themselves as 'a couture concept in lifestyle living' and feature interior design by Armani Casa. Now a resident of Brooklyn, the Parson's School of Design grad held his first successful solo unveiling of paintings and portraits earlier this year. His latest show marks Foote's foray into contemporary art. The exhibition is available for viewing by appointment only, so for more information contact 20 PINE, The Collection.

Thursday, October 9: It's time for another comedy crossover, this time from Down Under. Catch the series premiere of Kath & Kim, a glammed-up version of the Australian small-screen hit that has been broadcast around the world. The American adaptation, which may be just what the doctor ordered for those suffering from Ab Fab withdrawal, tells the story of a 40-something suburban divorc'e (Molly Shannon) who lets her newly single and gluttonous daughter (Selma Blair) move back home. The creators and stars of the original ensemble, Gina Riley and Jane Turner, serve as executive producers to ensure that nothing gets lost in translation. Expect big brawls and big hair. Tune in to Kath & Kim at 8:30 PM EST on NBC.
