Dear Ms. City,

When we ask ourselves, What is missing from today’s art criticism? the answer is pretty obvious: visuals. With that in mind, we’d like to tell you about our latest project.

ARTSCENTER TALKSOURCE isn’t just an internet art replay talk show, co-hosted by Roger White and Dushko Petrovich, two of America’s leading art commentators. It’s much, much more.

ARTSCENTER TALKSOURCE transports the at-home audience into the gallery.
ARTSCENTER TALKSOURCE replays the art, gets inside it, shows how it works in real time.

The show is going to have Live Analytics: Real-time attendance numbers, up-to-the-minute sales figures, viewer opinion of reviewer opinion—all the latest artwork experience statistics. Plus, Exclusive 24-hr Cams from the artist’s studios, with patented inspra-red studio videography, and exclusive touch-screen visitation options for our Platinum Members.

ARTSCENTER TALKSOURCE is going to e-volutionize the way we do art criticism.

The centerpiece of the show is a segment called View Review, where we look at what’s happening in galleries using a technology we call Digi-Graphic Criticoscopography.

This is a combination of CGI, motion capture, HD, TiVo, Flash, and HTML, and it’s completely new. We’re very proud of it.  It’s a proprietary technique, so we can’t tell you here how we do it, but the attached screen grabs will more than adequately demonstrate the Critiscope Experience.

Lynda Benglis, “Phantom”, 1971, and George Condo, “Mental States” at the New Museum via Critiscope

If you want to follow two events from the same institution at once, you can utilize our Institutionalization Mode. Why not double-screen George Condo and Lynda Benglis at the New Museum? Words cannot describe the experience!

Oh, and it’s going to have paywalls, and firewalls, and virtual-VIP sections.

It’s going to be like dying and coming back to life inside an android with a thousand eyeballs. Let us know if you’d like to invest.

Terence Koh could totally benefit from some info-graphics.

It’s exciting, but will it be as good as, another great way to enjoy art without the inconvenience of a gallery visit.

Wow, I’m extremely impressed. What an a different way to look at art. The
Arts of New York City
are definitely alive! May 11, 2011 at 2:49 am

i don’t even care that this is parody–the levels of irony here are so pretentious that it boggles the mind.

Wait, you mean you’re not going to invest?

It’s not even clear that this isn’t a parody, mostly because of the poor content (any way you look at it) in the football replay-type infographics. For that reason, it’s a ‘no’ from this dragon…
