Domenico Quaranta on Jon Rafman show, copyright issues


These issues were worked out in depth 20 years ago in music, in lawsuits over copyright. Eventually artists learned to disguise the samples, but then the frisson of the quote was lost. But those wars were worth fighting because the music didn't just quote Beethoven and other warhorses of so-called high art--their aim was every kind of culture imaginable, existing side by side with the new art in the same pop frame of reference. It's not clear why "Brand New Paint Job" takes only the greatest hits of museum/gallery art for its subject--it seems to continue the unfortunate trend of new media artists being resentful gallery also-rans and wannabes. Many other things besides more famous art works could be mapped onto 3D armatures but then you lose the narrative of critique (of something that's already been critiqued to death--painting as a service or commodity).

Another question: On the front page "active discussions" box, my name appears as "Tom Moody" but on comments it appears as TOMMOODY. Is there a reason for this inconsistency? Can preferences for screen names be added to the "edit profile" function?

Also, please note the "Professional Surfer" exhibit was Jan 2007, not 2006.
Nick, I have a long-ish list of "fp" links on my site(s) that are not redirecting to their new locations. I assume those were posts that appeared on the Rhizome front page. I will be posting them on my blog but was wondering if a rule for redirecting "fp" posts was something you are still working on.

How to Succeed in the Arts (by Really Trying)


The show was called ART@* ^ !! WORK--it was spelled differently every time it appeared. (Click photo of cubicle for link to the curator's page.) The punctuation is causing some paragraph breaks and dropped characters in this review.
