The Affair at
the Jupiter Hotel Art Fair
starts tonight. Be there or be square. The quibblers
and naysayers said it would never last but here it is. Will it be be overfull of massively derivative, follow like sheep, self-conscious doodle works on paper that aren't even good enough to be on the cover of the Mercury? Sure, it wouldn't be an art fair if it didn't but it can't possibly have as many as last year. There are better things on hand as well.
$100 gets you into the posh 6-9 PM opening but $10 gets you in at 9:00 PM tonight (PORT will be covering). Saturday and Sunday are nice if you want to browse
and schmooze more casually.

, note the keynote speech at 11:00 AM on Saturday
has now morphed into a panel discussion between one of my favorite curators,
(Seattle Art Museum, good hire Mimi, I remember chatting him up
to you in 2003), Jeffrey Grove (High Museum, Atlanta), Susan Hapgood (Independent
Curators International, NYC), and Joanna Marsh (Wadsworth Atheneum, Hartford).
Moderated by Stuart Horodner. Sponsored by Sarah Miller Meigs and Andrew Meigs
(who have an absolutely killer early Judd on display at PAM right now)
