    • Long March

      Thursday, 31 January 2008 11:28

      Lu Jie: The Long March is a difficult thing. One problem is my lack of sufficient theoretical and curatorial preparation. A bigger problem is that envisioning and planning are nothing more than envisioning and planning. Later, when we hit the road, it was "the road that led us along", Note 1 and the whole feel […]

    • Palm Trees and Rollerblades: Wrap-Up

      Wednesday, 12 December 2007 13:36

      I came to Miami for the art fairs, but I stayed for the circus. If you’ve ever been to the circus you know that the best part is never the main attraction. What you remember a year it’s done is the thrilling smell of animal feces and exploding gunpowder. You remember that it’s about eating […]

      “How much longer do I have to pretend to be interested in this?” —15 year old at Art Positions “If you come to Miami to buy art, you’d think you’d get a call girl, and not a Collins Avenue lady of the night.’” —Artist “Have you been to the bathroom at the Deuce? It’s the […]

    • Palm Trees and Rollerblades Day Four

      Wednesday, 12 December 2007 12:24

      As the week wears on and the sand starts to fuse with my brain all the art here starts to look the same. This five day long party seems to hit it’s apex around day three, so by the fourth day there are collectors passed out on lawn chairs at NADA, and the gallerists look […]

      Overheard in Miami “If you get bored, just look up.” –Artist referring to the ceiling at the Miami convention center The hierarchy of the Miami art fairs is basically that of a medieval city. The hotel fairs (Aqua, Flow, Bridge) are the masses of plague-riddled serfs creeping around the city walls, gazing up at royalty. […]

    • Diary of Miami Day Two

      Saturday, 8 December 2007 11:55

      I went to Pulse yesterday. The amount of art at these fairs is astounding. You could see a thousand pieces in a day, and probably only remember the bad stuff. It is an exciting, yet slightly vertigo inducing, way to look at art. I’m still on the look out for a painting of William Shatner. […]
