The Art You Won’t See

I am in NYC for most of the week and hope to post on some shows I saw including my show which just closed at D’Amelio Terras Gallery.

James Kalm has a you tube video which highlights the increasingly thankless and frustrating task of trying to document shows in spite of the proliferation of no-photography policies at many galleries and museums. It’s a very strange, situation since most artists I know want people to see their work and also since the vast majority of online art press is very positive.

    Good for you … I would surmise the shyness about having a video report is related to artists these days obsessing over controlling their image (and images). How much resistance have you gotten among up and coming artists and galleries versus the ones who have quote-unquote arrived?

    The astute observer will note that the same battles are being played out in the music and movie industries. See The Professional Suicide of a Recording Musician for a musician’s take on dissemination of his work.
