This week at the L Magazine I’ve put together a list of the best and worst exhibitions that stretches the term “exhibition” well beyond its intended use. That’s okay; art is not easily categorized. As for reflections, this was a good year for art. A lot of much needed change is here and on the horizon.

Wednesday Links!

by Paddy Johnson on October 26, 2011

  • “Pie is the food of the heroic”. A 1902 article linking pie and national success from the Times. [Lawyers, Guns and Money]
  • The slide shows for Carsten Höller’s exhibition, “Experience” at The New Museum are out. The best come from Gothamist [disclaimer, I'm in a few of those shots], and WNYC’s Carolina Miranda. [Gothamist] [WNYC]
  • I love this. From the #OWS Arts and Culture working group, Occupy Museums announces BYOM [Bring Your Own Manifesto] at MoMA tomorrow. They will be joined the Sotheby’s Art Handlers in their protest. [Paddy Johnson]
  • “I'm perfectly willing to take [the naysayers] on” David Hockney tells the Globe and Mail, in a profile largely focusing on his ipad and iphone drawings currently on display at the ROM. Me first! [Globe and Mail]
  • More than half the work at Rashaad Newsome’s show at Marlborough Gallery has already sold. I’d ask if this is an indication of the artist’s status as a rising star, but it’s hard to imagine anything like that coming out of Marlborough. [NYTimes]
  • Rumor has it Ryan Trecartin is leaving Elizabeth Dee. Anyone want to guess where he’s going? I’m going with Gagosian. [Galleristny]
  • Will someone make this news stop: Woman Gives Birth at Brooklyn Gallery [AnimalNY]
