Scouting the Blogs with Miklos Legrady

  Slow Looking. The Tate Gallery published an article saying take your time looking at art, complaining that people rush by the work without really looking.  It seems that when people rush by a work, it’s not that the work is amazing, most likely it’s boring.  A Museum of Modern Art curator has a youtube video telling us how to …

and let’s not forget the readers of Canadian Art Magazine. Is MOMUS returning to art criticism? Is Canadian Art ignoring it? I offered MOMUS editor Sky Goodden first crack at publishing this critique of her own journal.

A decade too much, Luis Jacob 10 years later

There’s a smell of insider-trading, then censorship to silence the whistle-blower. If art is anything you can get away with, the worst you can get away with is always the best strategy, leading to a consistent degradation of the field.
