Team Art, a collective of artists, invited Derek Guthrie, publisher of the New Art Examiner (NAE) to speak to the group about the NAE and the NAE’s revival on October 13th at the studio of Lynn Tsan. Allen Vandever of Team Art moderated.
Guthrie gave a brief history of the magazine that he and his late wife, Jane Allen Adams began in 1973. “The NAE speaks its mind and will not deter from that. It made us many enemies. Art in this town is sewn up by the gangster culture of money men,” he exclaimed. Guthrie went on to describe the politicization and corruption in Chicago’s current art scene to an intent audience.
