The Art Handling Olympics

Calling all art handlers! The Art Handling Olympics wants you! Register your team of four on their website and go head to head with New York City’s best, Sunday March 21st. The first competition of its kind, The Art Handling Olympics (AHO) celebrates the art world’s unsung heroes. These are the people who figure out how to fit over-sized sculptures into undersized elevators, find the straight line in a crooked paintings on slanted walls and eat the double park ticket so clients don’t have to! This March we find out who the best in the business really are.

Competition founder Shane Caffrey says he’s pleased with AHO’s response thus far, and enjoys the team names handlers have come up with. “My favorite is “Well Hung” he told me through a bit of laughter. Knowing there’s a “Special Delivery” portion to the competition makes me think that group will need to bring a little more to the table for the win though. Nobody’s dick is going to drive a truck.

I’m told the competition is still selecting judges, so I’m taking the liberty of offering up a few suggestions of people I’d like to see participate. In no particular order those are: Mary Boone (dealer), Jeffrey Deitch (dealer), Jerry Saltz (critic, former trucker), Andrea Rosen (dealer), Brian Alfred (artist), Sue Schaffner (artist), Cynthia Yardley (artist + Atelier 4′s art fair and expo co-ordinator), Lauren Cornell, (Executive Director of Rhizome and Adjunct Curator for the New Museum).

*The Art handling Olympics is an event founded by Shane Caffrey, and brought to you by Ted Riederer, Nick Brooks, Hiro Sato, and Jay Ivcevich. Together they are the Olympic Committee.
