I'm in beautiful Des Moines Iowa, home of the fantastic Des Moines Art Center
and Ill have some things for you later today and tomorrow. Till then here are some links.
Jerry Saltz takes a look at the somewhat indecisive curatorial directions of MoMA and the Guggenheim
... with some analysis on how it might change with new leadership situations.
The Capital A art blog from Glass Tire has a pie graph of geographical distributions for the Texas Biennial
. Ahhh some things never change, like the statistical analysis of survey shows.
Long time reader, first time commenter.
I believe it's important to note that the Texas Biennial is not an institutionally sanctioned survey show.
It is independent. Formed by a coalition between artist-centric Austin art spaces and has only now, in its third iteration, collaborated with larger, older organizations.
I wish they had their history on their site:
Also, the pie chart illustrates the geographic locations of the artists, not reactions to the Biennial.
