Delusional Downtown Divas. Created by Lena Dunham, Carroll Dunham and Laurie Simmon's daughter and artist in her own right, a filmmaker and writer. You need to watch a few to get the real idea. Pretty funny IMHO.

FINAL SHOW AT ABC NO RIO?
Remember ABC No Rio, the Lower East Side collective and exhibition space that got its start by taking over a long-vacant Delancey Street storefront and mounting the "Real Estate Show" in 1980? Well, the ABC No Rio tenement at 156 Rivington Street is about to be disassembled, brick-by-brick -- to prepare the way for the construction of a new $4.5 million "green" art facility on the site.
In the meantime, ABC No Rio is mounting its final building-wide exhibition, "ABC No Rio’s Ides of March," Mar. 19-Apr. 9, 2002, featuring works by 50 artists on all four floors. Participants range from Cesar Arredondo, Fabian Berenbau, Doris Cacoilo and Kevin Caplicki to Vydavy Sindikat, Carol Warner and the Z Collective -- as well a handful of the original founders, including Rebecca Howland and Alan Moore.
