So long, Art Cat. We’re sad to hear that New York’s hub for emerging and underknown artist exhibition listings will be converted into an archive as of January 1st, 2013.

It is apparent to me, after eight years, that there is no financial support for an art calendar of this kind.” He goes on to say that if anyone is interested in the code and data, he’s ready to talk.
