Re: Re: yet even More Artstar


hi y'all!

could this ( artstar.tv) perhaps be nothing more that a publicity stunt by Deitch?
albeit with a certain benefit to the "winning artist".

or perhaps just another chance to delve into pedantic ambiguity?

Re: Re: Fwd: [undercurrents] Fwd: Arts Intolerance: Emily Jacir/Ulrich Museum Wichita (fwd)


TOTAL BS!

here is copy of an e-mail i sent to David Butler and copied to Kevin Mullins. I urge other to do so also.

hello,
I read a bit about the cowardly way you have marginalized the artist Emily Zghal's work by allowing a religious group to put some form of disclaimer in relationship to the work.
simply said art is about expression and not balance. You should be ashamed of yourself, this country does still have a constitution and it's first amendment reads:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

which applies to all forms of expression artistic and otherwise in case you forgot.
