Can’t sleep at night for all the burning ideas you have about art? Time to write a few of those words down.

Art Fag City is now accepting pitches in two areas: Art outside New York and Net art.

This week at the L Magazine, I find my center and spread the gospel. There’s some net art out there that talks more about the soul than about the iPhone. I call it good.

This week at The L Magazine, I go to bat for Claire Bishop’s much-maligned Artforum essay,”Digital Divide”. Did she forget about the existence of every net artist? Did she not notice she’d written a sentence specifically excluding the art she was looking for? No. You just can’t read good.

Massive Links: The Most Important School Ever

by Will Brand on June 18, 2012
  • We love Julia Halperin’s piece on Avenues, a new K-12 private school opening in Chelsea this fall, even though the content scares us slightly. The school will have a focus on contemporary art; among the amenities are a private, growing art collection, visits from working artists, printmaking facilities at Pace Prints and, most importantly, iPads for all. In the words of its founder, “This is going to be the most important new school ever opened, anywhere in the world.” [BLOUIN BLOUIN, OH NO, ME GOTTA GO, AYE-YI-YI-YI]
  • Netartnet.net is artnet for net art, and that’s a fantastic thing to have. We liked it so much we bookmarked it twice. [Netartnet.net]
  • Sam Taylor-Wood and Yoko Ono met thanks to a film Taylor-Wood directed about the adolescent John Lennon, and found they had a lot in common. Taylor-Wood tells a story of an American gallerist who questioned the merit of her work based on the fact that she has four children. Everyone is rightly aghast. [The Guardian]
  • We just came across this recording of LBJ requesting more room in his pants “down where the nuts hang”. It’s in excruciating detail. [Wonkette]
  • Hat-tip to Patrick Gantert for directing us to this Flash explosion of Christianity. Best worst website ever. [Evangel Cathedral]

I’m getting tired of seeing listings for dude-dominated digital art shows. Just to count what I’ve seen in the last month: The USB Show, at Paris’s Le Point Éphémère two weeks ago, invited one woman artist to participate out of 21; Astral Projection Abduction Fantasy, which ran from February 23rd to March 23rd in Dublin, included three women out of 29 artists; and the April 12th BYOB show, in Milan, only included 9 women out of 42 invited artists. These shows might as well be Lilith Fair, though, relative to the worst recent offender, Dotcom, a show organized by the anonymous collective BSNP at the Centre d’Art Bastille in France. That group show runs through June 10th and includes no women at all.
