Shawn: You want to paint?  Me: Yes.  Shawn: I need to make a Jackson Pollock.  Me: OK! We should probably do this outside. (later) Shawn: We should really have some music. Can you play ‘because I’m happy’? When that comes on, I really start firing. #playartfully #jacksonpollock #bestwaytospendtheevening #weloveart by csmonaghan2012 http://ift.tt/1koShrJ

    Photographer David Goldblatt describes the world of Billy Monk.

    As a bouncer at the Catacombs, a seedy nightclub in Cape Town, South Africa, Monk had no formal training as a photographer when he began taking photos. Monk photographed the patrons of the nightclub, capturing intimate moments.

    Works by both artists are included in Public Intimacy: Art and Other Ordinary Acts in South Africa, on view at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts through June 29.
