It pleases me to announce the creation of Critical Miami, a blog about Miami culture and politics edited by frequent Artblog.net commenter Alesh Houdek. Critical Miami looks like it's going to involve several writers but already has a good design and a productive angle. Congratulations, Alesh.
CM has just reviewed the Figuratively Speaking show at the Miami Art Museum, which I have been staying away from covering for personal reasons. Curator Peter Boswell came to Dorsch to look at my work late last year, seemed to like it pretty well, and indicated (although he didn't promise anything) that he would consider including me in Figurative Speaking, which did not come to pass. I have learned from bitter experience to take art world rejections on the chin and not make too much of them; otherwise I anaylize and criticise and get my undies in a bunch over an event that doesn't really mean anything about me or about the other party. But no review, though. No need to twist the thorn.
