I’m heading out to Granville, Ohio today to install an animated GIF show I curated for The Mulberry Gallery at Denison University. This means a couple of things to readers, namely that Will Brand will be managing the site for the next couple of days – expect the quality of posts to be pretty high. I’m looking forward to reading part two of his series on the best and worst gallery websites, in addition to Corinna Kirsch’s take on the Stephen Rhodes exhibition at Metro Pictures, and the second installment of Guy Forget’s series on impermanence.

We will however be updating our Fresh Links through out the day, as well as responding to a lot of smart commentary currently being offered up in comment section of the blog.  Both the VIP Fair thread and on the Seth Price show currently on view at Friedrich Petzel are receiving a lot of thoughtful response.

I won’t be posting today or tomorrow in observance of the Christmas Holidays. Look forward to Boxing Day posting (that’s December 26th for all my American readers) when I will discuss further issues regarding The Smithsonian and David Wojnarowicz. Also, if you haven’t done so already, do take a bit of time and donate to the AFC end of year fundraising campaign. AFC is a full time job, and I don’t have a trust fund supporting the blog. I need your support to keep the blog running. I also need it to pump that Benglis dildo! Donate now, and watch the magic happen!

A response to “Play”, the Guggenheim's recent YouTube exhibition and exercise in co-branding, “Playlist” is about how people actually use online video today.

It doesn't add anything new to the world—instead, it looks at the strange archival richness that's already there on the Net.

I’ll be posting material from last night’s Sound of Art record launch next week, but today I have to recover. A note of congratulations though to Hrag Vartanian of Hyperallergic, who won the Cary Liebowitz football in The Sound of Art raffle last night. He worked hard for that ball, jumping on all our raffle […]

I had hopes of publishing a few more highlights today on the New York Art Book Fair (who wouldn’t want a Bruce Nauman, Mapping The Studio flipbook), but that thought went out the window with deadlines and Sound of Art Party Preparations. In the meantime, check out the awesome poster Double Triple’s Phillip Niemeyer created for the event. Visitors whop plan to attend the launch party November 18th should let us know via facebook. And don’t forget: you can save five bucks on the ticket price by purchasing your advance tickets here.
