OK, you're making me laugh, apulapd and commiserate. I, too, participated in the Biennial as a non participant; I have the non-work and non-pictures to prove it. (The emperor is naked and he's showing at the Whitney, right next to us.)What piss me off are sexism and ageism, and as Kate noted, the lack of transparency, which means you never know whether it's you or your work, or you and your work, or an issue that has nothing to do with you and/or your work at all. In terms of ethics, I have experienced worse from artists than galleries, though let it be noted that the artists in question are basically amateurs who wanted what I'd achieved for myself without putting in the requisite dues. Go fuck yourselves, indeed.What do we do about it? Network. Share information, leads, ideas (but be careful whom you share them with). Come up with projects that create opportunities for ourselves and our peers. Be upfront and fair with dealers and curators--and know that are many wonderful folks in those roles who love and respect art and artists as much as we do. Acknowledge and support the good ones, share caveats and information about the bad.
The poem: poem beginning in no and enindg in yes Touches on a very sad subject, that being the death of Hector Peterson- connoting the harsh realities of death. the poem takes you on a journey from to bad to tragedy, to reason, and concludes with hope.
Hey guys. . . Don't know if you remember from Breckenridge 5 or 6 years ago. . . but I just wanetd to stop by and say THANK YOU, once again! You both were the people who gave me the courage to dive into investing full time and giving up a steady (and measly) income. Needless to say, I am doing well, and like your positive outlook. I am making the most of the current crisis which is not at all that in my eyes. . . Thank you once again, and I know you are giving other people the same push and knowledge that I got! Keep up the great work!have fun,ADAM
