Bronx Library

Posted by joseph mcelroy | Fri Sep 30th 2005 12:27 p.m.

So an interesting development for myself and my wife - we had a piece
accepted by the curator of a show for the Bronx Library system to be
shown at the Mott Haven Library - the up and coming arts area of the
Bronx - anyway, one of the library administrators, a Bob Bellinger
(rbellinger@nypl.org*) *for some unspecified reason rejected it -
perhaps because the peice explicitly stated that we were interested in
investigating whether the library is an agent of hegomony - or perhaps
he was having a bad day - whatever, he doesn't give his reasons....

anyway, just by way of warning, don't go to the Bronx and challenge the
library system with your art...

for anyone interested - here is a link - it is a huge file but does have
a progress indicator. http://www.corporatepa.com/library/

    I've found that any project will get rejected
    which threatens the reputation, structure, or governance of an institution,
    and may lead to the administrator losing their position.
    I think most administrators will not encourage a political attack
    on the institutions they work for.
