Omar Sommereyns for Street: Comic book heroes: An exhibit at the Centre Gallery shows just how far graphic novelists like Will Eisner and Chris Ware have taken comics art.

Judy Cantor and David Navas for Street: Exit. This is the third comics piece the duo has done for Street, and I think it's the best. Street also has an interview by Cantor with comics great Art Spiegelman, but you know how Street's site is - they didn't post it.

Michelle Weinberg for the Miami New Times: Unnatural Nature: Old clothing, eerie digital prints, differing views of the world.

Miami New Times: Current Art Shows. Cool - I got a blurb.

Michael Mills for the Broward/Palm Beach New Times: Recycled Reality: The artist duo Guerra de la Paz turns rags into artistic riches.

Gary Schwan for the Palm Beach Post: Chinese artists express seven centuries of beauty.

The Onion: Bush Campaign Paints Kerry As Pre-Raphaelite Contessa.

obviously not the most stellar week we've seen in Miami's burgeoning art scene.

bur-geon also bour-geon (b-j) intr.v. bur-geoned, bur-geon-ing, bur-geons.
1.a. To put forth new buds, leaves, or greenery; sprout.
b. To begin to grow or blossom.

Our "art scene" is always described as "burgeoning". I think winter is setting in.

But consider what our winters are like.

Margulies announced this week the opening of a big new wing in their space (although i understand it's actually been open awhile, and it's not completely done...). I stopped by yesterday. A lot of stuff has been moved around, but there is tons of new work to see, and the installation is great.

So for me it was a pretty stellar week.

Margulies, like everybody else who can manage it, is cranking up for Basel, just as before. There will be the same artificial, temporary frenzy, and then, after the Baselites leave, we'll go back to reality. The difference between Basel time last year and what has happened (or failed to happen) in the year following it is both remarkable and depressing. But the Baselites will be happy, and that's what matters.

art, what you have in the pair OP&J is a call-for-attentiion art syndrome: the sour and musty "olden days" spirit. Risibly, what's left now is an irritable whining at utter irrelevance.



November 7, 2004, 10:05 PM

Art - I totally missed that - where did you hear about it?

Hey, writingforpleasure. I'm glad we could grab your risables.

The assumption that what is currently fashionable and/or favored by the present art establishment is, ipso facto, relevant might be risible if it were not so sad. A related assumption, that what is not currently "hot" or "in" or "happening" is, therefore, irrelevant is even sadder. Still, we are all free to decide what we do and do not consider relevant to ourselves, though it goes without saying that others are not obliged to agree.
