There’s been a variety of fun and whimsical art events lately, but every once in a while there’s a week of substantive works which we’ll be thinking back on for years to come. Performa is one of those, and the online biennial “The Wrong” might be another. And after 41 years, this Tuesday’s event at the Clocktower Gallery may be your last opportunity to visit before it’s turned into luxury condos.

Even though the hum around Armory week seems subdued this year, visiting half-a-dozen-plus art fairs can in a few days’ time can feel like a week on a Eurail pass. Naive outsiders are treated harshly, the food is unfamiliar and overpriced, and you spend a lot of time snooping around taking pictures. It’s useful to have an index that you can depend on to guide you towards the things that are worth seeing and away from the things that aren’t. A guidebook if you will. Here’s ours.

Morning Links: Decoding and Recodifing Art

by Paddy Johnson on March 26, 2012

  • If you were confused about why Andrew Masullo has the respect he does amongst painters, Carol Kino’s profile in the Times won’t help. There are maybe two and a half paragraphs on his actual paintings in this profile. [NYTimes]
  • Let the Mad Men recaps begin, footnotes and all.  (Hat tip The Awl). [Mad Men Unbuttoned]
  • Attribution symbols for the heavy linkers in the crowd! [The Curator’s Code]
  • All communication to upper decks will involve breast fondling. Star Trek Insignia Pasties. [Incredible Things]
  • Marina Galperina slams The Art Newspaper for venerating homophobic zealot picketers. [AnimalNY]
  • Old news, but in case you didn’t see it, James Murdoch to leave Sotheby’s board. [FoxBusiness]

Monday Links: #GIFs #MetaGramCity #Naznecromancers

by Paddy Johnson on March 12, 2012

  • A rabbit hole almost impossible to exit: TVTrope’s entry on Walt Disney’s Anne Frank. The movie doesn’t actually exist—though Variety reported in 2009 that Disney got the rights to a new stage rendition written and directed by David Mamet—but if it did, it would *very* loosely based on the same named book and would include a three talking animal sidekicks, a Nazi necromancer Femme Fatale, and a Happily Ever After ending. Naturally the list of tropes indexing this entry is five times as long as the stub. [TVTropes]
  • I’ve got a longer post on this in the queue, so get ready for more thoughts on PBS’s GIF special. Tom Moody got a few words in early. [Tom Moody]
  • The Knight Foundation is generously funding ARTLURKER’s Miami Writer’s Prize. The Miami Writer's Prize is open to any resident of Miami-Dade County who is not already on ARTLURKER's roster and/or has not had more than three art -related texts published in print. [ARTLURKER]
  • Last night I made a video of a GIF of a RT of a RT of a Tumble of a Pinterest of a Instagram of a Instagram of a Instagram of a Tweet of a Google Search. Soundtrack: Tron. The video already has two dislikes and miraculously, 50 views. Miss Galperina, I believe it’s your move. [Youtube]
  • In other bones Salmon picks, he’s no fan of MoMA’s “Foreclosed Exhibition”. A good read. [Architect]
  • Happy Birthday Elaine de Kooning. [Artnet]

China rejects science fiction, but video from Japan suggests evidence of zombie squids. People are even more into storm trooper outfits than previously suspected. None of us can afford Powhida (trust him), but if we don’t touch anything, we can check him out though the window of the Marlborough Gallery. A bold few dare to suggest that academic writing is superfluously convoluted.
