You don't hear much about female light and space artists but LACMA's Helen Pashigan
show is set to alter that.
Jerry Saltz takes on an art flipper
. The main problem is treating artists as a mere market that is easily cornered, hyped, inflated then turned over like what used to happen to commodities in the 70's and 80's. The thing is Art requires a long term view and a supple aspect that is being lost here. It isn't the market, academia, institutional commitments or critical response... it is all of the above that matter. Also, when attention in any one area is over-inflated it builds resistance from the other corners of the art world. Also, the question of taste isn't being foregrounded... it is the ability to influence and motivate. There is a distinct difference and strong taste tends to justify itself because it has a certain integrity to it.
In case you missed it, for the second year in a row Brian Libby chose the venues for the Portland Modern Home Tour
. My oh my, has Portland's image and design IQ changed or what?
