Can you believe we fucking survived 2012? Have you ever EVER had a worse year? Wars, lethal weather and weapons turned on first graders. Crazy, insane, unbelievable and very hard and very very sad. It was tough staying cynical and disengaged this year. Even for us. But 2012 is finally over and we are looking foward. Are we ever. Take my hand (oh all right then, take my red plastic arm) and together we will make our way past Anne Hathaway and Jack Reacher and baby mama Kim Kardashian, into the bright golden future of 2013. Happy New Year, everybody!
Just in time for holiday hostilities, Cathy McClure unleashes her armies of Mechanized and Synchronized Mickey Mayhem. Two small but lethal battalions (one x 12 and one x 6) of stripped-down Mickeys confront each other on the famous War Zone platform at Moss Bureau. This makes synchronized swimming look like child’s play. Individual Mickeys also available.
The fun begins Thursday, November 29th at 6PM.
Little Willa holds onto her dad, as Cathy McClure’s Carousel and Ferris Wheel spin and twirl and grind away. The strobes can make you believe anything. We believe in carnivals. Look below for more extreme spook.

Opening this weekend as the first exhibition at swanky and snarky Moss Bureau, it’s Cathy McClure’s MIDWAY, two completely wild and strange zoetropic carnival rides. You’re looking at The Wheel, a multilevel carousel complete with bronze and silver bots, all lit by strobe. You won’t believe your eyes, and you shouldn’t. Invitation for preview performances coming up tomorrow, plus MORTAL STILLNESS.

Yes, children, Cathy McClure’s done it again. Unleashed upon the world, just in time for Xmas, one might note, yet another of her strategically demented mechanical devil-toys. Meet stripped-down-and-out-for-blood Mickey. Click here to go to the movie. Be afraid. Be Mickey afraid.

Seriously twisted Seattle-based artist Cathy McClure, who lives to rip the shit out of plush mechanical toys, always ends up with lots of leftover bits, and being as she is not only twisted but also green, she makes use of everything. Hence, our new load of her Bot Rings, featuring the eyes she’s ripped out of sweet little plush sockets. These might just have to be seen to be believed.

On every day that doesn’t start with “S”, we feature an extraordinarily fabulous item which is either brand new to the website or is a Moss “classic” item we think you might like to be reminded of. This is today’s.

Cathy McClure’s bouncey bronze bots are back on parade at Moss. They’re charming, hilarious, and deeply deeply disturbing, as you can see from this little movie. This one is called Bronze Some Pig, obviously.
For those of you who are not fortunate enough to call New York home (yeah, we’re that arrogant), we thought we’d give you a taste of our “Under a Full Moon” exhibition, which we celebrated with an opening last week. Click on the name of the artist or designer for his or her galaxy of goods. You might want to lean away from the computer so you don’t drool on the keyboard. If you decide against it, don’t say we didn’t warn you!
