~RICHARD PRINCE/CHARLIE FINCH
RICHARD PRINCE / CHARLIE FINCH – it rhymes !!!!
RICHARD PRINCE RETROSPECTIVE/GUGGENHEIM/PHOTO COURTESY: supertouch
STRAIGHT OUT OF BIG MOUTH KNOW IT ALL .. and artlovers-critic-at-large: SIMON CERIGO who reports:
“W.R. says ‘CHARLIE FINCH doesn’t even go to 50% of the shows he writes about.’
He didn’t go to the RICHARD PRINCE opening – I know, because I WAS THERE.
He thinks if he already knows about the artist, he knows the whole story – he figures he already has baggage about the artist – and that becomes the story – so it doesn’t matter what the show is like.
With RICHARD PRINCE – ‘SPIRITUAL AMERICA’ – that way of thinking proved to be a fatal flaw.
The show is so good, so elegant and so concisely edited, that not only does it look good – but everyone is re-assessing the artist’s production, and redefining (upwards) his influence on the scene around him, from its early days.”
O..K.. – IF YOU SEE ANY PART OF THIS HAS BEEN DELETED – esp. the W.R. quote – you’ll know SIMON GOT INTO TROUBLE, with his big mouth again . . . & . . if you have to ask who W.R. is – you didn’t read it here. – !!!!
