This video seems relevant to the thread, probably.

That is an AMAZING photo. I have always wondered who the artist was. I had a clipping from a magazine framed for years. I'm guessing that the print was at least $2500?

Chelsea got hit hard. Lots of art destroyed.

reminiscent of the irene before and after parody photos from last year, assuming no harm was meant.

Anyone got any good art related reading?
anything from modern art history to heists?
Thinking of this one

those are both on my reading list too.

Jack Goldstein and the Calarts Mafia is fun, but just gossip really.

Same artist as the video you posted incidentally.

In case you are serious; I was assuming the setting of those chairs is some sort of objet trouvé as the urinoir by Duchamp. I thought you were being facetious. Another example of a horrible loss would be the dilution the original puddle of salt water exhibited as art. (I think I read about that one in this very thread)

I wasn't being serious. Compared to the puddle the damage is a little worse because those are Qing Dynasty chairs, but they can obviously be stood back up.

Dave Hickey, a curator, professor and author known for a passionate defence of beauty in his collection of essays The Invisible Dragon and his wide-ranging cultural criticism, is walking away from a world he says is calcified, self-reverential and a hostage to rich collectors who have no respect for what they are doing.

"They're in the hedge fund business, so they drop their windfall profits into art. It's just not serious," he told the Observer. "Art editors and critics – people like me – have become a courtier class. All we do is wander around the palace and advise very rich people. It's not worth my time."

Hickey says the art world has acquired the mentality of a tourist. "If I go to London, everyone wants to talk about Damien Hirst. I'm just not interested in him. Never have been. But I'm interested in Gary Hume and written about him quite a few times."

If it's a matter of buying long and selling short, then the artists he would sell now include Jenny Holzer, Richard Prince and Maurizio Cattelan. "It's time to start shorting some of this shit," he added.

Saw Jayson Musson lecture last night.
Enjoyed seeing the transition of his bodies of work,

This


to this



to this


to finally




Selling 34k pieces out of MFA.

Takeaway " Sometimes you have to leave behind a body of work to create a new one"

Walead Beshty and Jonas Woods also started selling big when they stopped trying to be deep and started making large multi-colored squares.
post #1395 of 1578

Didn't Danto say this years ago?

 

It feels like art criticism and artistic production haven't had a synonymous relationship since Fried.

 

Also will Mr Hickey be joining his fellow Stuckists every year in front of the Tate Britain in his best pair of clown shoes now?
