Weekly Web Round-up

Courtesy of Michael John Muuss

Welcome to the first installment of the Weekly Web Roundup (name to change when I can think of a catchier title-any suggestions?). The plan is to post links to articles, shows and websites that are either related to Portland’s art scene, completely ridiculous or both. All I ask in return is for you to write me (melia@portlandart.net) whenever you’ve found something, written something-or had something written about you or others related to the arts in Portland that's linkable. If it's unrelated but funny, it'll probably make it to the list too.

Topping the list this week:

Matthew Stadler explains what exactly he was doing with Mark Brandau in a hotel room last fall.

Here’s a good article on the latest sport in New York: gallery jumping!

Yes and Small A got great write-ups in Artforums Critics’ Pics for their current shows.

Saatchi has done it again. This time he’s providing lonely artists with an online dating service. The game I like to play with this one is: Are they posting for love or for work? You try. More text = love, more images of their art = work.

Willamette Week’s Richard Speer offers his take on the current gallery offerings.

I’m told you Portlanders are ahead of the rest and I guess this proves it. Apparently this has been done to death here and y’all are sooooooooo over it.

On artnet they’ve compiled a list of Art Fairs through the end of the year and, of course, the Affair @ the Jupiter Hotel is listed. Make your travel plans accordingly.

The Portland Art Museum will be open with free admission on Friday June 30th.

And finally, the super ridiculous site of the week. He’ll help you feel young again while keeping your mind sharp and your body in shape.

Ok, it's not all related to Portland but most of it's related to art. Add your own finds in the comments or write me when this post gets a few days old and I might be able to squeeze in some extras next week.

Nice inaugural post of the "Weekly Web Round-up."

The "Gallery Jumping" article was pretty interesting. If only my problem was that I am so successful I need to find a new dealer.

Good luck finding a new name for the post. I couldn't think of anything too interesting. But if something comes to mind...

I also thought the ‘Gallery Jumping’ article was particularly fascinating. I’d be interested to know how many galleries the artists they mentioned for leaving their current representation had left earlier in their career. Something also tells me that the same galleries that feel slighted have probably themselves cut ties with artist whose work wasn’t moving.

I found the gallery jumping article interesting only that it was worthy of an article. Gallery jumping has always happened and Tom Friedman made an obvious move. He's got a host of lesser artists who copy him (I won't name names but some are Portland locals) and he is in a lot of major collections. When you are the leader of a huge trend you are golden.

Sometimes you simply have to take things to the next level. TF's due for a major museum retrospective (like the one Cecily Brown is getting at the Des Moines Art Center) and going with Gagosian makes perfect sense.

Feature's space although nice doesn't compare with LG's ability to mount huge shows in many major cities like London, LA and New York. Also the fact that TF left feature gives them an opportunity to replenish. I bet TF may want to return in 10 years or so after LG has done all he can for TF... it happened with David Salle and Mary Boone.
