A Brief History of Combining Crap with Crap (Artfagcity.com)
Is it only a matter of time before innovative aesthetics are subsumed into meaningless art world drivel? AFCs recent European tour exposed us to a barrage of art consisting of refuse-piled-on-refuse-then-painted.

The Nine Eyes of Google Street View (Art Fag City: IMG MGMT)
"The world captured by Google appears to be more truthful and more transparent because of the weight accorded to external reality, the perception of a neutral, unbiased recording, and even the vastness of the project. At the same time, I acknowledge that this way of photographing creates a cultural text like any other, a structured and structuring space whose codes and meaning the artist and the curator of the images can assist in constructing or deciphering."

Life, Art and Chickens, Afloat in the Harbor (NYTimes.com)
"For the last two months artists have been floating around New York City on the Waterpod, a 3,000-square-foot experiment in community living and artistry. Founded by Mary Mattingly, whose medium is mainly photography, it was envisioned as a self-sustaining living space, an eco- and art-friendly sphere that could be recreated in the future, when land resources might be scarce."


America is changing"but are its art museums? (The Art Newspaper)
"You do not have to look at major US art museums for long to realise that most of the senior management is white, unlike staff at comparable levels in corporations, universities and government offices. When is this going to change? Those leading efforts to diversify museums say the economic reality of who pays to support institutions has not evolved sufficiently to require any lasting push for change. But American demographics are shifting swiftly. US minority groups will become the majority in a few decades. And art museums will have to diversify to survive."
