Anyone else notice that Rhizome’s four-piece Paddle8 auction has already raised over $35,000? The auction supports their Seven on Seven Conference, for which they seem to have so shortage of support. That’s in no small part due to Petra Cortright’s “krakow_1.psd”, a digital painting on aluminum estimated at $3,500. The top bid for that painting is currently at $17,500 after 29 bids. The auction still has two days left.

Mercifully, this year’s ADAA far was absent of familiar pop art fair staples such as Roy Lichtenstein and James Rosenquist. Many dealers brought contemporary art to the fairs, with familiar names such as Dana Schutz, Jacob Kassay, and James Turrell filling the booths. That, along with a series of in-depth solo booths, contributed to an overall sense of higher quality than in years past.

Thursday Links!

by Paddy Johnson on October 27, 2011

  • ArtForum’s Ben Carlson gets it from Greg Allen, who mysteriously believes that reviews should discuss the work, not auction prices. Jacob Kassay at L&M Arts doesn’t get much of a review. [Greg.org]
  • Ai Weiwei re-imagines his time in custody as a fashion shoot for W Magazine. The magazine describes he documentary-style pictures he took of the 1988 riots in Tompkins Square Park as a touchstone. [W Magazine]
  • Charlie Finch suggests a few places to Occupy: Trump is a good one. So is Marina Abramovic. [artnet]
  • “All of our grievances are connected”: A visualization of the crap the Occupy Wall Street folk don’t like Loren Munk style. [Hyperallergic]
  • The term “micro-celebrity” came out a livejournal entry on camgirls. [Rhizome]
  • Reminder: The Chocolate Fair runs November 10-13 in NYC. Eat. [The Chocolate Show]
  • Ben Davis compares Occupy Wall Street to the Art Workers’ Coalition in an essay about why he supports Occupy Museums. [ArtInfo]
  • In overdue corrections: A while back I wrote that Tom Moody was complaining about how rants were disappearing on blogs and comment sections. Not so. Tom Moody says he was lamenting the disappearance of ranting in the blogosphere because of the comment sections of blogs. In his words, “In a post you can be a fiery orator but then in the comments you are supposed to make nice and listen to what people are saying.” Facebook likes etc are making people be nicer.  [Tom Moody]
  • Rafaël Rozendaal has a seven day show up at With Project Space worth checking out. Open through Oct. 30. [RR]
  • Word to the wise: Uniqlo’s 10 dollar pants are not available at their SoHo location. That intrepid reporting courtesy of yours truly. [Art Fag City original story]
