New in Art

posted by on July 25 at 16:16 PM

New York is Now and Ghost World by Charles Mudede:

The future of Africa is Miller’s next and most important step as an artist.


Chad Wentzel and a Star-Studded Celebration of Infinitude and Perpetual Beauty by Peter Gaucys:

As in his previous show at Crawl Space, the cut-paper extravaganza Everything I’ve Ever Wanted All at the Same Time, Wentzel makes a genuine attempt to pin down his euphoria and share it. His vision is ecstatic. He wants to bring it to the gallery. And yet, as his own larger-than-life rhetoric acknowledges up front, he knows that he will fail to.


UPDATE: Christopher Frizzelle just alerted me to the fact that this post makes no sense. Charles Mudede and Peter Gaucys did not make any art. They wrote about art made by Paul D. Miller and Chad Wentzel, respectively. They wrote about this art in our paper, this week, which has just been posted online. Basically, I wanted to point you toward two reviews worth reading about art worth thinking about.

Oh, and what’s with all the attitude about the cat in my post from earlier today? I mean, I thought the cat thing was sweet, but here everyone seems to think the cat is causing the death? Wouldn’t you want to have a cat around to notify the nursing home to notify you so that you could get to the nursing home in time to say goodbye to your dying relative? That cat is performing a service! And it’s not just a service to you, it’s to the one who’s dying, too. Give a cat a break!

Seattle's art scene is laughable.

OMG. thank you for directing me to the comments after the cat post. This isn't hyperbole, I don't know if I've ever laughed until tears came out before but it just happened. Thank you!

Oh, and since no one else is here to say it- Fuck off ecce.

That cat post was wonderful and the article from NEJM was heart warming. The people with negative comments are the typical oh-so-jaded and cynical Seattlites who think it's fun to ridicule everything because they are emotionally retarded. IMHO.

Oh, and fuck off.
