New York City Coucil has voted to allow Vornado Realty Trust from proceeding with a 1,216-foot skyscraper adjacent to Penn Station, and since this is New York not everyone is happy.
It does surprised me that the art market has been unregulated for so long. Considering there is government regulation in so many aspects of our lives, it’s interesting to see that the art world has been given the luxury of self-regulation (which means NO regulation). Well,纽约时报blogger William D. Cohan thinks that should maybe end …
Up-and-coming street art critic RJ of Vandalog asks why the new poster campaign by Shepard Fairey’s Obey studio is so damn ugly, ok, he didn’t exactly say it that way (I’m paraphrasing) but he might as well have.

Robert Longo is the king of that detached world of 80s über-cool, though in retrospect the whole “movement” (if we can call it that) was nothing like its PR. Sure, one could be fooled into thinking that Longo’s corporate figures writhing out of control were comments on the culture of the time, perhaps even foreboding what was to come — Reaganomics, corporate avarice, an extreme form of alienation — but did we really think it would lead to advertisements for Bottega Veneta?
Sure, we know that art dealers can be shady (very shady, in fact) but this recent story about a lawsuit that has been filed against the owner of Chelsea’s Stendhal Gallery swindling two artists to pay off a $90,000 bill at Cipriani Downtown, is unbelievable — even by New York standards.
If you are reading this blogazine then you probably already know this to be true but we thought you’d like to know about this story on ReadWriteWeb:
A study released this month by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) found that people who engage with the arts through various digital media are three times more likely (59% over 21%) to attend live arts performances, and do so twice as often (6 events per year over 3) as non-media participants … the survey concluded that “media-based arts participation appears to encourage — rather than replace — live arts attendance.”
If earlier this year, we were all distraught that the chief curator of an institution calling itself the New Museum didn’t know much about the online art world, today we can all breathe a little sigh of relief as the director of the world’s foremost modern art museum, MoMA, has given what amounts to a tech-friendly endorsement of the virtual world.
