the last friday roundup, perhaps

Post #464 • January 28, 2005, 8:28 AM • 3 Comments

Michelle Weinberg for the Miami New Times: Time Lapse: Photographs that compel you to think again about recorded history.

Miami New Times: Current Art Shows.

Gary Schwan clocks in at the Palm Beach Post with The life aquatic with Andrew Wyeth.

Omar Sommereyns for for Art Fairs International: Among the Bonbons and White Walls, Some Standouts.

And with that, I'm thinking to demote the Roundup from its weekly installment status. It's getting pretty dismal in the print world down here in Miami (excepting the mag below), with the Herald all but getting knocked out of commission for art coverage and Street folding. Suggestions, anyone?

See you there: tomorrow night at Books & Books in the Gables from 6:30 - 9:30, we're having the release party for the long-awaited Issue #5 of Accent Miami, which marks a new lease on life for the magazine. I'm its arts editor, and I'm proud to have included the work of Tom Virgin in this issue. There will be a viewing of Tom's beautiful handmade books and a Latin band. Somehow local public radio station WDNA got worked into this as well. (Expletive deleted - I first put this up saying it was tonight. Sorry.)

Also Saturday, Jordan Massengale is putting a show together that's going to include a whole bunch of people - Alesh Houdek, Demet Koc, himself, yours truly, and more - in Wynwood. I can't find the damn address right now but I'll get it before the end of the day. If anyone has it, please put it up the comments. UPDATE: Got it - Brook bailed me out. The show's called "Space," and it's showing at 380 NW 24th Street, immediately west of Control Skateboarding. It goes 8 - 11.

this press situation is getting out of hand.

I was really sorry to see street leave and I don't know what the status of elisa turner is but why hasn't the herald invited someone to take her place? least temporarliy. She used to write almost three times a week.

Nomi is also having thier walk tonight.

Yep, Miami's a major art city, all right. At least when a foreign commercial venture visits town for a few days once a year, the art equivalent of a big car or boat show. But of course, there are all those parties to report on then, and the oh-so-photogenic Europeans with shaved heads and matching pink dresses, and the spectacular sales figures, and...

By the way, Franklin, I think you should keep the roundup, despite the local media's sorry state. Has anyone asked the Herald what their plans are (if any) regarding arts coverage? Surely the question must have occurred to interested parties with enough clout to get a response by now. Have you asked, Franklin? Calling the current coverage situation lame is an understatement. Of course, the Herald IS pretty lame, so it fits.
