(Untitled Curiosity)

As I was sipping my morning coffee, and reading the NY Times online, I came across a review for a new movie that piqued my interest. The film, titled (Untitled), is a satire about the art world.

Being a fan, as well as a participant of previous portrayals of the art world, I can only hope that the Times review is (more or less) in the ball park. Granted, it obviously had a much bigger budget, but that’s another thing to write about on another day.

“Tetris, that’s what it’s like” said David, about the current storage situation with the FRAC’s collection.

A perfect piece, by Lawrence Weiner, for a sad situation. As of May 2nd Galerie Micheline Szwajcer will be no more.

Trash

If I didn’t know any better, I’d say one of my neighbors was trying to send me a message with their garbage.

Ironic Facial Hair

The trend of ironic facial hair has clearly arrived in the Netherlands over the past 12 months. It only took about four years for it to migrate from Williamsburg to the rest of the US, but who’s counting? Seeing as Man Ray pioneered ironic facial hair at least 66 years ago, if not earlier, maybe the Williamsburg hipsters are the ones who were late?

Speaking of Man Ray, and facial hair, if you happen to find yourself in Groningen anytime soon, you can catch a work by me that touches on both. On view at NP3, until the 26th of April.

The revolution is over

Times are tough.

Apparently the art boom is over. Again.

Swiss Banks are handing over client lists to the IRS.

It’s getting so bad, that apparently even socialism is being sold off for a discounted price.
