    Take a good last look folks!

    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.

    I'm showing some work at the Lawrimore Project in Seattle in June that I'm pretty excited about. I also have a performance at On The Boards this coming weekend that should be a blast.

    The On The Boards performance is a dance piece using real-time sound synthesis. The piece in June is a installation piece I've been working on for the last couple months.

    Dad did it, which makes it seem a bit pedophiliac. (Is that a word?)

    Check out the other pix, it is an interesting crowd that the photography seems to hang out with. Very Diane Arbus.
