2018 is nearly over, Ill post a list of our biggest stories Saturday and Portlandageddon is coming right at the beginning of 2019. Till then here are some links to tide you over:
Here is Edward Winkleman on the history of art galleries on Artsy
. The sense is the business is now driving galleries out of business. Art used to be the refuge of more marginal business mindings.
Here is a treat, Amy Sillman on Delacroix
then there are the year end lists (ill just publish our top posts tomorrow):
New York Times
looks like they had a good year
This interview with David Lynch in Plazm
isn't quite ruined by the annoying and cloying tone the interviewer takes.
the Art Gym's records are headed to the Portland Art Museum
. So a program becomes an archive... I must note that the PCVA's even more storied archive lives there as well. Overall, Im curious about what will happen to the Crumpacker Library archives after PAM's planned renovation/expansion? Hopefully this opportunity to make the library better known and accessed is seized upon. Also, the space vacated by the library will become a large contemporary gallery space. All that said, any move of the Art Gym away from its Marylhurst site changes things... one really can't turn back the clock. The thing is Portland should be creating more ideal organs of culture to serve its crucial art scene rather than just reshuffle the decks.
