Art Fag City at the L Magazine: Paddy Goes Back to School

by Paddy Johnson on July 7, 2010 · 1 comment The L Magazine

This week at The L Magazine I apply to the Hollywood Forever Correspondence School. The teaser below:

I’m quite certain Hollywood Forever Correspondence School isn’t a website meant to be taken particularly seriously, but I decided to fill out their online application form anyway. I like the unfocused black and white Hollywood mountain picture on the website, created by Carlos Laszlo and Marlon Rabenreither, which has that young hipster/grunge aesthetic I sometimes look at desirously. Why not reclaim my youth?

Apparently one way to do this is by embracing bullshit. The school promises “apperceptive education, semiotics, and nuance in the field of artistic practice and study,” a meaningless course description if ever I heard one. The promo text goes on to describe those enrolled as “both professors and students” and the school “just as much yours as anyone else’s.” It’s basically the school of life for art kids.
