Dear readers,

After four years, and with a heavy heart, I’m moving on from Art F City and probably the art world at large.

Friday Links: Punk Enough

by Paddy Johnson on May 17, 2013

  • Reviews of the Met’s Punk show seem unilaterally negative so far. The TimesGalleristArtInfo and Hyperallergic don’t like it (an understatement for Hyperallergic’s Geraldine Visco). My review comes out in the L Magazine next week.
  • Gawker reporter John Cook has seen a video of a man he’s told is smoking crack cocaine. He believes that man is Toronto Mayor Rob Ford. Toronto Star reporters are claiming to have seen the video too. Ford’s denies the allegations and has had his lawyers send Gawker an email threatening legal action. Gawker has responded by posting the request. [Gawker]
  • Relatedly, Rob Ford is the worst mayor Toronto ever. [Wikipedia]
  • Tom Moody isolates the 180-degree rule as important in an essay about GIFs as micro-cinema. “Both [Bruce Conner’s] A MOVIE and these animated gifs employ some common cinematic principles. The cuts create an eyeline match, which make it appear as though the characters are looking at one another, and obey the 180-degree rule (meaning that if you draw a straight line between their eyes, our perspective stays to one side of it).” [Indiwire: warning, there’s a 15 minute static ad that pops up before the article can be read!]
  • Yahoo is considering buying tumblr. [The Verge]
  • AFC Alumn Julia Halperin will be moderating an ArtsTech meetup on the Art Market. If you live in New York and aren’t in Venice, you should go to this. [ArtsTech]
  • Roberta Smith isn’t thrilled with the dick measuring contests going on in Chelsea between David Zwirner/Jeff Koons, Gagosian/Jeff Koons, and Hauser & Wirth/Paul McCarthy. Nonetheless, she measures, and concludes that Hauser & Wirth/Paul McCarthy has the biggest dick of them all. [NYTimes]

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]
  • is artnet for net art, and that’s a fantastic thing to have. We liked it so much we bookmarked it twice. []
  • 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]
