~FRIEZE, NOT !! DEMAND, HOT !!
ART WORKER BEES – REVOLT !!
the art world show generating – the most buzz – this weekend ?
the new THOMAS DEMAND show that just opened at MATTHEW MARKS – 522 W 22nd ST – in Chelsea.
one: it’s not a big schlep, two: it’s for free, and three: you can always stroll on the Highline, afterwards – esp if you’ve been locked up indoors all week manning the computers & getting four-eyes staring at screens all day, if you’re a young chic(k) art worker, or schleping art – if you’re a young guy artist/art handler, working for the big auction houses, fairs & galleries. there’s more art truckin’ going on, than art – actually worth the trucking. you know things are bad when the lead-in article – on the fair weekend . . . is all about how that big white ‘worm’ of a tent – went up – on Randalls Island, former home to juvenile delinquents, Idiots and Children, and just the plain ole poor !!
where’s R. CRUMB when we really need – him !!
but keep on truckin . . . esp. if it’s the only way – to keep the $ trickling down the food chain. and I mean t-r-i-c-k-l-i-n-g. micro drip drip by eyedropper drop.
that . . . and for sure !! you’d rather plunk your hard earned dough – $40 !! – down on a good drink & dinner with pals, in BROOKLYN !!
esp in NYC – when you can just stroll around, and check out the freshest stuff – restaurants (!!), bars (!!), and art (!!) – for free ?
party on young artists !! – you make the city go round.
