Michelle Weinberg for the Miami New Times: Get Unreal:In a processed world where the artificial becomes authentic, this show makes sense.

I want to make a bit of an apology for yesterday's post, which set a record here at Artblog.net for self-indulgence, one of the side-effects of depression. While I stand by my preferences, the fact remains that I plan to be a part of Art Basel, the American Academy in Rome, the Getty, or something like them one day, and referring to their current participants as simians was ill-tempered. I would rather confess to immaturity now than be guilty of hypocrisy later. The bottom line is that I haven't been doing enough lately to maintain myself, and unfocused abuse of the art world is not going to do me or my readers any good. I want to thank everybody who wrote in with a pat on the back and assure everyone that I'm not going to let the blog devolve into a report on my state, which even I don't find all that interesting once I snap out of it (and I invariably do). Thanks for reading.
