Well the MOCA news pretty much overshadowed the Armory Show
, which is as it should be (though it isn't fashionable in art schools, the idea of Greatness trumping the daily ins and outs of the art market would be refreshing if it weren't so unfortunate).
Still, the Armory Show and related fairs like the Independent
happened. Here's more on the Independent, Volta
and the Moving Image Art Fair
Artinfo did a 60 second video tour of the main Armory show
. It is what you would expect, people watching, "look at me" art etc.
Here is an interesting book review of two books on contemporary curating
. I love how the reviewer teases out the idea of what I call rhetoric without belief (part of what makes contemporary curating both interesting and and horse shit). There is a mantra of nihilism that is seductive and often pointless that can get old fast... just the same as evangelistic curating.
