jared: +10,000 points. fucking LOVE erwin olaf. yay.

Yeah he's great. I love (they just acquired a few pieces at the Seattle Art Museum) Joel-Peter Witkin (http://www.artphotogallery.org/02/artphotogallery/photographers/joel_peter_witkin_01.html) as well.

There is another photographer I found recently that i forgot to bookmark, he did this fantastic series of photos about male insecurity with this scrawny, hairy creature in absurd social situations (there is one with these guys pouring milk on this girl while they force him to watch). I'll find it...

there's a photographer that i found on myspace, of all places, that you would probably like. unfortunately i've forgotten his name, and he's in my friends list on my art account, so i'll have to spend some time later sifting through those people to try to find him.

well its not that bad compared to some of his other stuff. mine is very similiar to this one. the only difference is the background on mine is baby blue and has a border of decapitated dicks and its on a canvas slab so it looks rougher than this one. he seems like he has alot of time on his hands because hes always contacting me through myspace...

You think that one is rough to define as art, imagine how I felt when WOLFGANG LAIB got an exhibition at the MCASD when I worked there! Some lady hated on one of his pollen fields by jumping the rope barrier and running around in it, kicking the pollen everywhere, and then running out of the museum before anyone could catch her...lol...it was funny...mainly because I thought he was a pretentious prick...

There's a difference between "constructive criticism" (I hate that term) and being an asshole.

You were just being an asshole. There are other places to do that. People aren't going to post their art if they think people are going to say things like that. I'm all for thick skin, but you shouldn't need it in this thread.

Well said. For me, it's not that people like or dislike art and make it clear what it is that they like or dislike about it, it's the people that go to an exhibit hoping to dislike it, or people who always look for something to criticize instead of looking for something to appreciate. You're fully entitled to not like a piece or an artist or a movement. I don't really hate art critics, I hate assholes. Sometimes, the two go hand in hand.

Courtney
05-31-2007, 04:32 PM
For me, it's more about talking about all the good stuff I want to share with other people. Art criticism is just a form of writing that gets the information out there.

Good criticism is not communicated "for no apparent reason at all," good art criticism is done with the intention of facilitating progress.

The best critics have always been considered assholes by the general art community/public (Jack Burnham anyone?), but that's because the general public is worried about art here and now, good critics have their eyes set on the future and tend to be rarely satisfied by work absorbed in the present.

In my opinion, the best art critics work to foster the existing art community and help the development of the artists that they believe in. For example, Clement Greenberg's relationship with Jackson Pollock.

I agree completely, and the best way to "foster" an existing community is with consideration towards the future. In many ways, Burnham had a similar relationship with Rauschenberg.

but yeah, we'll stop, because i'm inadvertently implying a validation of that kid's contribution.

I understand the need for criticism in the art world. The only reason that I said anything is that I didn't think that criticism for criticism's sake belonged in this thread. Pete's comment was not anything intended for "artistic advancement". It was just him scoffing obnoxiously via the "reply" button.


But anyway. Like you both said. Let's not do this. How bout those mets?

HQ is a gallery that has been representing me for a little over a year now. they are awesome people who run a very cool boutique/gallery right in downtown Montreal. this was their 1 year anniversary exhibition.

they have several pieces of mine in their rotating collection, and they hung an older piece and 1 new one that i sent up:

Jared, 'splain yoself, mofucka. So people sit in the chair, listen through the phone, watch the TV, do/don't drink the wine, and fuck the tentacle?

ok. so the footage displayed on the TV is footage I shot on a couple of occasions. First, my parents are very religious and asked me to go to church with them for this anniversary thing (my grandfather used to be the pastor). I obliged, mainly because they respect me and never ask.

Anyways, one of the first things that happened in the service was they brought up the first pastor of the church. The guy was completely out of it. He had these huge headphones on because he couldn't hear, he was in a wheelchair, and it was clear he didn't fully understand what was expected of him. My grandmother had asked me to record the service, so I had this cheap camcorder the whole time. I'm recording this guy and all of the sudden he just breaks down crying. I was so overwhelmed (being in so close with him as a result of the camera) that I shut the camera off. This was a pretty naive thing to do, as if in some way I expected the stopping of the camera to alleviate what I was witnessing. So I turned the camera back on and recorded the remainder of his "speech." He rambled on for almost 30 minutes, telling the same story several times. Finally, the pastor of the church cuts him off, and the old man responds by telling him that he doesn't know how he can help because he can't see or walk and is pretty much useless. It was really fucked up, and the pastor did his best to recover by asking the man to just give a blessing and say a prayer. This registers with the old man, and he just kicks into autopilot and says a prayer with his eyes open (it looks like he's staring directly into the camera). The whole thing is really fucked up, because the men on either side of him have these bizarrely malicious grins and are holding his mic for him etc.

So I cut up this footage into some of the most powerful moments. I then mixed it with this footage of my baby sister (5) burying a rat. A while back we had this rat terrorizing my house. My roommates were going nuts, so we finally set some poison out. I came upon the rat as it was dying after eating the poison and tried to put it out of it's misery. But I had a really hard time doing it, it's a lot harder than you'd think. It was quite an ordeal for me, and one of my roommates suggested we bury it. I asked my sister if she'd be willing, seeing as she recently burried her pet hamster and was now a pro. I video recorded it as a kind of memorium to the thing. Inevitably I edited the footage together with the footage of the old man so that it looked like my sister was burying the rat alive.

You sit down in a chair which appears to be in a living room and listen to the audio through the telephone. Meanwhile, to the left of you there is a small sculpture I made that drips ink into a cristal glass being measured by an old post office weight scale.

Fair enough. It ain't that hard to kill a rat, by the way--I used to have to do it when Mom would catch one in a glue trap. The answer is called: smacking the everloving fuck out of them with a big hammer.

Of course, there was one occasion where the creature that got trapped was not a full-grown rat or mouse (we'd get shifts of either or both from time to time--lived near woodsy area) but a little tiny, cute-ass baby mouse, who just had its foot caught in the trap. He was struggling to pull loose but couldn't, and frankly it was almost heartbreaking. I'd found a gnawed-off foot left in these traps underneath my kitchen sink before, and I was now faced with a dilemma: reach in there and try to set him free or smack him with the hammer when he wasn't anywhere near dying, unlike all the ones I'd hammered because their necks or skulls had been broke.

Well, I had a rare moment of sympathy for the little guy, somehow identifying with his plight as this was back during my high school days, and reached in to free him. Little cocksucker bit me!

He did not get anything as kind as a hammer. Anyways, someone go find all those probing annoying art critic questions and ask Jared all of them. =)

There's no time to be hurt if you're a man about it. =)

I'm going to go find all your pretentious art critic questions and bombard you with them now. Sounds like an interesting exhibit, though.

In other news, there's this series of art exhibits related to famous cult movies that's going on in LA. http://www.nineteeneightyeight.com/home.html

I heard about it because Kevin Smith is involved and I'm his myspace friend, but I happened to notice that this is also the art house that hosted an exhibit including a work from a buddy of mine from home. The theme of the exhibit was 8-Bit Videogames. This is his contribution, which sold for 3 thousand.
[fuck, hold on, I gotta figure out how to link this image better]
Alright, there's no way for me to copy the image properly, perhaps by design so that you can't just copy each artist's work. Scroll about 75 percent of the way down the page on this link, his name is Matt Dangler, the painting is titled Mario Envy. http://www.nineteeneightyeight.com/8bit.html

I believe this kid is going to go far, he does some absolutely amazing oil works, which you can check out here (I think this link should work): http://viewmorepics.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewPicture&friendID=7541996&albumId=0

I do believe it was kristen.

i'm a student in digital art and experimental media at the UW in Seattle. I've worked on quite a few film sets because an area I have focused my study on is film. I've done a lot of camera-op work and a shit ton of grip/gaff work. I've also DPed a couple short projects.

As far as "work" goes, I do software development part time to pay the bills.

part of what I wanted to re-create was the closed distance that the camera created between me and this man, so I did my best to recreate that in a phsyical manner for the installation. It doesn't function in quite the same way, but I think it created the physical response I wanted. In some of the less pleasant moments, people physical pushed back on the chair, in an effort to create more distance between them and the picture. I also tried to accomplish this by making the audio in the telephone loud, so that there are moments when the viewer had to pull the telephone away from their face, simulating a kind of artificial separation.

Here are a few childhood/school artwork I stumbled across the last couple of days (I don't remember doing any of these back in the day)...

http://www.ebombfilms.com/chomp/erik_abc_4.jpg

and here is a story I wrote when I was little, entitled "Jeff Turkey" (cover shot, and transcript):

http://www.ebombfilms.com/chomp/jeff_turkey.jpg

My turkeys name is Jeff Turkey. He's plays on a football team called Turkboys. I number is number 1 he won the gold medal (that's what I'm reading on the page, hard to read the writing actually, but it's my best translation and no idea what I meant by that sentence...). His house is a car. He sleeps on the front seat. I made him because I like football. His favorite bobby is collecting pogs. I dressed him like this because it's the uniform on the football team. His teammates are Bob Goose, Johnny Duck, Timmy Bird, Robert Seagul, and Michael Bee. He likes football. His coaches name is Dom Mosquito. He's a nice pet. His best friend is Robert Seagul. He loves everybody who likes him. He does not play football with a helmet. His helmet is black and white (contradicting I know...). He is a good pet. He is 16 years old. He goes to highschool.

My turkey dreams about winning the Turkey Bowl and MVP. And live in a rich house instead of a car. And have children and be drafted to the turkey NFL. And play on the Farm Ranch Gobble Gobbles. And have millions of pogs and slammers and own a new car and be number 50 since that is his favorite number. He wishes he could the star of his team. And always get the gold medals. He wishes about having lots of money, always making touchdowns. And two point conversions and would be famous and popular and filthy rich. Have no problems at all and would go to the junior turkey bowl and have lots of rewards. But thats all just a dream.

Once there was a turkey named Michael Turkey. He was walking along when he saw an apple. Little did he know it was poison. He ate the whole thing. He walked by the king and said gobble gobble. Jeff Turkey couldn't believe it he couldn't speak. After a decade, he still couldn't speak. "I have to do something about it", tomorrow was the parade everybody would laugh at him. He couldn't even say gobble gobble. So he went to the tree and ate a good apple could talk and think. And a had a good parade. Nobody laughed at him.

How do you dress a turkey? You put a shirt on him then a sweatshirt then a jacket, then some sweats. Then you need some socks, then you put the shoes on. Then get some gloves on, then you put some gel or hairspray and cologne on his hair and put a hat on him and some sunglasses. You are all set.

Hi, I'm a reporter from channel 5 news.
Reporter: What's your favorite football play?
Turkey: Well my favorite football play would be a hand off.
Reporter: Are you married?
Turkey: No I'm not.
Reporter: We have to go now, bye now.
Turkey: Call me, I'll come back.

My turkey dreams about winning the Turkey Bowl and MVP. And live in a rich house instead of a car. And have children and be drafted to the turkey NFL. And play on the Farm Ranch Gobble Gobbles. And have millions of pogs and slammers and own a new car and be number 50 since that is his favorite number.

ahahhahahahhhaaaaaaaa.



Reporter: We have to go now, bye now.

I will be going to Documenta12 in Kassel next month. I am thrilled, despite the lukewarm responses this time 'round. I will be participating in a couple of roundtables about real-time installation/media works that I'm pretty excited about. Mostly, it's a pretty legendary show and I'm excited to get to see the work and talk to some of the people involved in the process.

I'm also in the preliminary stages of my thesis project that will be shown in Seattle next Spring. We are working the details through with two different galleries and I'll post the details when they arise. I can't say a whole lot now because it's constantly evolving... however, I'm working on building a couple of real-time stereoscopic/3d video rigs that will be implemented into the piece. It will be a performative piece that 4 people will view at a time... Might be interesting.

i guess, but given the title of the event; "all in the present must be transformed," you get the impression that I was supposed to take more away from the event than a bunch of stuff I had already seen independent from each other. I'm a big fan of beuys so I was happy to see his work again, but the parallels between their work didn't really extend beyond the surface for me.

EDIT: and the Beuys show in Berlin at Harburger Banhof was better in my opinion.

You know, I have to admit, I like some of Barney's stuff. I thought the Cremaster stuff was interesting, often boring and ridiculous, but there were some fantastic moments. At a minimum, the guy puts together some incredibly well polished exhibits (the Drawing Restraint exhibit, 7 and 8 in particular, at SF MOMA). He needs to get off of his own ego though.

Beuys and Barney both really don't do it for me. In the world of big art egos, they pretty much win for constructing entire fictitious realities circling around their created personae. I guess Barney is slightly more palatable just because of the sheer craftsmanship of his work. And Beuys gets a certain level of props just because he did it first. And some of his work dealing with issues of nationalism is more engaging. But still, ugh.

i agree for the most part. I think Beuys gets some credit for integrating mythologies that have serious basis in reality. A lot of his work explores what reminds me of the paradox of history that is explored in Umberto Eco's "Foucault's Pendulum." For whatever that is worth...

The ego kills a lot of it, because I find myself looking for reasons to hate them while experiencing the work.

Getty to hand back 'looted art'
By David Willey
BBC News, Rome

Disputed statue of Aphrodite
The 5th Century BC Aphrodite was allegedly smuggled out of Sicily
One of the world's wealthiest museums, the Getty in Los Angeles, has signed an agreement in Rome to return priceless artefacts allegedly stolen from Italy.

Under the deal with the Italian culture ministry, 40 major works of ancient art will be returned from next week.

The items include a prized limestone and marble statue of the goddess Aphrodite, to be handed over in 2010.

It follows two years of often hostile negotiations, with Rome threatening to sever ties with Getty.

It is a victory for the Italian government, which has been battling in the courts for the past decade to defeat the enormously profitable international trade in smuggled ancient art works.

New policy

The former curator of antiquities at the Getty, Dr Marion True, is currently on trial in Italy on charges of conspiracy in the looting of ancient works of art which ended up in the museum.



The Getty Museum will not acquire anything that does not have an appropriate provenance
Michael Brand
Directory, Getty Museum

Some serious charges against Ms True are being dropped by Italian justice authorities although she still risks being found guilty on lesser counts.

The deal marks a milestone in relations between the Getty and Italy.

The museum has established new guidelines for future purchases of ancient art, director Michael Brand said.

"The Getty Museum will not acquire anything that does not have an appropriate provenance, same as the British museums, and that is the biggest contribution to the future," he said.

The most prized work the Getty Museum is giving back to Italy, a 5th Century BC Athenian marble statue of the Goddess Aphrodite - dug up in Sicily and secretly exported - is to be allowed to remain in the US for three years.

But 40 other important objects including fresco paintings stolen from an unknown villa in Pompeii, marble and bronze sculptures and Greek vases, will arrive back in Rome sooner and be put on show.

went and saw an Anthony McCall piece at the Western Bridge.

While it creates a nice effect, works that are solely dependent on the "aesthetic" experience need to be flawless. McCall's work has too many small elements that distract from the immersion. First and foremost are the resulting projections that hit the back wall/floor etc. The light should be diffused near the end so the space remains amorphous and doesn't detract from the experience. Second, the fog needs to be more controlled. First in how it's distributed, and second in it's consistency. When the consistency gets thicker, the whole thing ends up looking quite silly.

Was definitely worth seeing, I hope current/future iterations of his work smooth out these wrinkles.

While I can't really draw, I doodle intricately while on the phone. Usually in notepads that get thrown away. I hate drawing faces, so they usually end up blank or avatar-ish.

They are progressively sad, but there is an obvious love and appreciation between the father and daughter. For them both to be so seemingly comfortable with each other says everything. Although the picture of her in the car and the one of her drinking coffee and smoking a cigarette were ones that made me feel as if she wasn't as comfortable with him taking the picture at that moment.

I began my install at the Lawrimore Project today. Today I built out 50ft of 8ft frames skinned in black corrugated plastic for walls.

I also moved all of my gear in: a bunch of steel tiles and steel framed acryllic, 4 LCDs, 8 speakers with hand-made PETG backings accompanied with parabolic reflectors, a bunch of contact mics, a macpro with a second video card, and a Motu.

I'm already exhausted, and I have a long week ahead of me.

I am now in charge of curating all shows in one of the smaller, less important spaces in the museum where I currently work. (Which is still damn exciting for me!)

But that post actually referred to a young, adventurous gallery in Chinatown which invited me to guest curate an exhibit for them. Which reminds me that I still need to figure out what I'm doing and put together a proposal for them.

So... anyone have suggestions on how to find awesome artists?

Thanks! I'm actually familiar with rhizome; I had a friend who interned doing their marketing stuff a couple years ago. But I haven't looked at the site for a while, so it's definitely good to have a reminder that it's out there.

Well, if you get the oil canvass, you should probably rent an Englishman in a suit to stand by the painting during your business hours. You should also get one of those red rope barricades with golden posts and make a little square around the painting and the Englishman.
