John McWhinnie - RIP

Sad news...I went to several very cool events at his upper east side place over the last several years, and we even discussed the possibility of him buying some of my posters at one time. Read a nice memorial piece at Gallerist NY. This is the type of stuff he usually dealt in, and every once in a while he'd throw in an extremely interesting show about the Velvet Underground or his punk ephemera collection. Or he'd get Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth to show her paintings. Like I said, a lot of interesting stuff. I'm glad he was on the radar for a while.
