Check out the 2000 interview from our archives!



Delusional Downtown Divas chronicles the adventures of Oona, Swann, and AgNess, three young women hungry for art-world stardom but comically unaware of how to reach their goal of stylish domination. The DDD's are downtown natives, living in AgNess' father's Tribeca loft. They spend their days smoking pot, changing outfits every few minutes, and plotting about out how to worm their way back into the art world they were raised in-- but now they're adult women with professional aspirations, not just kids stealing pretzels from Leo Castelli's gallery kitchen. And they have no idea how to go about making their desires a reality.

The DDD's stalk the young artists they admire, make scenes at openings, dance too aggressively at parties and exhibit uncouth behaviors while wearing their mothers' designer hand-me-downs. With a hint of Ab-Fab and a hefty dose of Ali G, the Divas aggress targets ranging from Nate Lowman to Isaac Mizrahi, in locations from Beatrice Inn to The Gladstone Gallery to Miami Art Basel.
