- Those who can’t get enough of AFC will have the rare opportunity to hear me speak in first person at the Jersey City Museum this Thursday at 7. I will be discussing how my artistic training and background led into and informs my writing here at Art Fag City with artist and curator Michelle Loughlin. Loughlin will also be discussing her practice, the Internet, and support for emerging women artists.
- Conceptual composer and artist Jens Brand will perform tonight at Experimental Intermedia as part of their thirty-ninth anniversary series. Quoting directly from the website, “An evening composed of three pieces that have nothing in common … 1: “music” and music video, based on what Madonna (Madonna Louise Ciccone) thinks it is (or a respirator sounds like); 2: A vinyl based topographic scratch around the world on behalf of the one and only TWV – the black beeliner with grooves – and 3: HCAT-MPIGS a piece for trombone, violin and annoying light; at the end of a questionable evening, questions can be asked and products can be bought at discount prices” Related: The Little DiVA That Couldn’t, and The G-Bee, and G-One.
- A sampling of enjoyably good and bad quotes uttered by art professionals throughout the year now appears at the L magazine courtesy of me. The best/worst of them all goes to gallerist Javier Peres who managed to incredibly managed to contribute two sentiments that made our list in the space of one interview on artkrush. “I am interested in many different things in the world, and artists who share those interests and address them in their work in original and thought-provoking ways intrigue me. If they're hot — or simply sluts — then that's even better.” Later, Peres describes his relationship with artists as being “”¦all about trust — very much like a master-servant relationship; except in our case, we never make clear who is who.” Yea. Awesome.
