I’m out of town today so posting will be decidedly slim. In the meantime, I will leave you with the observation that the luxury housing developers 520 West Chelsea are now advertising in Artforum’s magazine. I’d post a picture of it above, but I loath the thought that a jpeg representing the high end condo business might replace legitimate art endevors.

    if you are able to explain the differences between an art objects commodity status and that of the luxury condos you attempt to critique as less “legitimate” your readers would appreciate it. i find your moralizing to be thin at best and am interested in seeing you unpacking your ideas, in the hopes that you are in fact not duplicitous.

    66: Condominiums do not constitute the same stuff luxury or rarefied cultural objects do; they are far more imposing on the world, delineating private space out of public and materializing abstracted class barriers. Her “critique” of the advertisement is related to the pandering of art journals to the service of the real-estate industry. The brokers at 520 West Chelsea are obviously selling ambiance as much as housing units.

    First of all lets keep in mind that posting notices are not features, and therefore do not “unpack” larger ideas. Second, the point of that remark was to say that I’d rather promote under represented emerging artists who need it, as opposed to luxury condo developers who can afford the ad space in magazines.

    why mention the condos to begin with AFC if you want to “promote under represented emerging artists who need it, as opposed to luxury condo developers who can afford the ad space in magazines” you gave them free advertising space.

    thank you for explaining that for us AFC.

    i’m glad to know that you’re aligning yourself with sound-bite culture who’s only interest is to numb our senses and shield us from having to challenge our perceptions and actually think critically.

    Jesus. It sounds like it’s crypto-right-wing corporate-support day around here. Why is critiquing an advertisement promoting it? Does Naomi Klein support the corporate agenda and guerrilla advertising she critiques in No Logo? Why do we attack our cultural critics with such ferocity and fervor?

    Just an update, I had a person who was interested in purchasing this piece tried scam me. She sent me a counterfeit check so that I would have sent her my work for free. I’m still pretty shocked about the whole thing.

    Well at least someone was interested enough to want to steal my work.
