Just a few items of personal interest.
Brett Sokol does the Basel thing and gives Dorsch Gallery and yours truly fine mentions.
Art Anatomy is now released under a Creative Commons license. Since the college where I work has a figurative focus, I'd like to get this illustrated by the end of this year. Please contribute and pass along to interested parties.
This was fun. The article in question has a comment under it that says, "DUCHAMP DUCHAMP DUCHAMP - How many tails are we gonna pin on that donkey?"

Can't Hopper afford to feed that girl better? Or does she have an eating disorder? Was including this vaguely distasteful (at least to me) photo really necessary? Well, I suppose it is Ocean Drive mag, after all.
OK, enough about people who are quite beside the point (at least to me), most assuredly including Tobey Maguire.
Congrats to Dorsch, his artists and Franklin for the nice publicity. Sorry I neglected to play with Robin Griffiths's logs.
Mass MOCA should have its own head examined before questioning anybody else's sanity. Unfortunately, I can see a Miami museum aping that sort of stunt. Whoever would even fleetingly consider dropping $200K for that Büchel claptrap at Maccarone is insane, possibly worse.
I'm afraid White Elephant was all too aptly named, though it looks inoffensive enough, which is something. Metaphor my ass.
I can't possibly go into the $250 knockoffs of Damien Hirst and the like. I have my dignity to consider, after all.

With such squeamish exception taking to your "-brow" hierarchy, perhaps they'd prefer an eating analogy instead...

There is no pop culture. Pop is culture.

Haven't read Sokol's piece yet, but who is that girl with Dennis Hopper? His granddaughter?
