Thor Shannon

NAME Thor (pronounced "Tor") Shannon WHAT SHIRT DID YOU CHOOSE AND WHY? Picasso! WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING/LISTENING TO/WATCHING? I'm currently reading 'City of Night' By John Rechy, and making my way through 'Even', Joseph Farago's new art magazine. As always, 'Game of Thrones. WHERE DID YOU GROW UP? I grew up in Montreal, but went to boarding school outside Boston when I was 16. WHAT'S ONE ODD THING YOU CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT? I have a bagel, lox, and cream cheese at least 3 or 4 times a week, every week. WHAT WAS THE LAST GREAT MEAL YOU ATE? I've been cooking a lot at home recently with the aid of Mina Stone's cookbook 'Cooking for Artists'! She cooks all of our gallery dinners and they're always phenomenal. Typically I'm an awful chef, but I've been finding what I've been cooking using her recipes has been pretty great! WHAT DO YOU LIKE/DISLIKE? There's so much I like! I don't want to rattle off a list of cliches but I'm a pretty exuberant person, so most of life's simple pleasures please me immensely. I really dislike know-it-alls. And people who deny climate change. WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE ON THE NEXT DEERDANA SHIRT? Parker Posey, Jennifer Coolidge, Nancy Sinatra WHAT IS YOUR MORNING ROUTINE LIKE? I take a very long time to wake up–I'm a snooze queen–but once I'm up I'm up! I shower, sometimes shave, all very rushed, get dressed, and then take the train to work listening to bad Top 40 to get me going! WHAT PIECE OF ART WOULD YOU LIKE TO OWN? There are a few pieces by Felix Gonzalez-Torres that if I owned I would feel like the luckiest guy in the world. Same with Sturtevant. DO YOU HAVE A WEBSITE/TWITTER/INSTAGRAM? @thorshannon
