An affirmation in a time of crisis

Free market economics has triggered the onset of The Great
Depression 2.0. The planet is getting so hot you could light a cigarette
just by holding it outside your car window. The Large Hadron Collider
is on the verge of creating a Black Hole that could swallow up the Earth.
As we dive headlong into the Apocalypse, let’s take a moment to breathe,
relax and engage in contemporary Art!

January 9, 2009 - February 6, 2009

Opening Reception
January 16, 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
The Brew House Space 101 Gallery is located
at the corner of 21st and Mary Street,
South Side, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15203.

DISCUSSION

ArtExpo 2005 by Luca Curci in Italy


As an artist, I don't recall doing a show without having to pay jury or curatorial fees. It seems like it's part of the process. Except for solo exhibitions. It honestly starts to look like the art world is in favor of curators and administrators than artists sometimes.
Regarding Luca Curci. . . I have participated in a number of things he has organized (and won't disagree with previous comments about the type of work shown). But, I will say that some venues he has managed to schedule for Art Expo, I have been able to ascertain some level of credibility for, at least in my estimation. There have been a couple of foul balls though. That's part of the bag I suppose.
The problem is that artists have to constantly develop strategies for success. It is a long haul and you have to be persistent.
