nothing says "i'm puking" like getting the ArtForum International newsletter in my email!


It actually says "Heh heh" in the banner of the newsletter. I wonder if they learned that on "heh heh - Wall Street?"


So, i opened the thing up and it starts this way:

Nothing says drama like an auction; even when the market is low the theater is packed. Collectors, dealers, and art-world players swarmed to New York last week to watch (and even partake in) the proceedings; every step of the way was there, bringing updates from the scene.
Ha ha, idiots. They'll even partake in it? How fascinating. What is wrong with these retards? NOTHING - NO NOTHING - SAYS DRAMA LIKE MY FOOT UP YOUR LILLY WHITE PSEUDO INTELLECTUAL ASSES.

Then at the bottom, (i guess i actually skipped the entire middle of the newsletter):
Ruben Ochoa has left a tantalizing amount of empty space beyond the piles of earth; the installation encourages curious viewers to pass beneath the hefty concrete. … READ ON.
But that's not bad enough:
The sparse elements in Marc Camille Chaimowicz’s exhibition orchestrate a sparse lyricism that has surrealist overtones and a refined pop dandyism born of 1970s glam. … READ ON
Nothing makes me want to read on - and on - and on - like a refined pop dandyism.

I guess the third one isn't that bad.

“Rummaging,” the third installment of the Bonniers Konsthall’s yearly salon de jeunesse, focuses on artworks that reshape and reconfigure space. … READ ON
I seriously doubt any space is being re-shaped much less reconfigured at salon de jeunesse...
BUT NOTHING - NOTHING - SOUNDS AS INANE TO ME AS THAT "READ ON."


I am still not reading on - I WILL NEVER READ ON. See my last post if you are interested in contemporary art.

  1. I remmeber this fraind complaining about the publicity of art fair last year, 'cause it was diplaying buyers and gallery owner insted of artists. It's been a long time since art was about... well art. Now it seems like it's all about consumption disguised with a flamboyantlt empty rethoric.
