Four Fast Links Friday

  • Skip Van Cel sent me a link to these absolutely brilliant photos. I'm not entirely sure they depict exactly what they seem to, but you have to see them all the same.
  • ARTNews' list of the Top 200 Art Collectors for 2007 is out. (Be sure to see the awesome group exhibition at Sara Meltzer Gallery featuring Jennifer Dalton's take on this annual assessment). Christopher K. Ho, who has a solo exhibition coming up in our gallery next year, also has work in the exhibition (a collaboration with Troy Richards).



  • More over at CultureGrrl on the controversial State Department "art that promotes US foreign policy" program. This time someone who's had experience with this notes the State Department never meddled in projects they received money for.
  • Andrew Sullivan has been posting variations on "How many XXX does it take to screw in a lightbulb" jokes on his blog, with neocons or whatever being the XXX, such as:

    Q. How many neocons does it take to screw in a light bulb?
    A. Neocons don't bother with light bulbs. They declare a War on Darkness and set the house on fire.

    Q: How many Christianists does it take to screw in a light bulb?
    A: Christianists don't screw in lightbulbs, they screw in brothels.
    I found this one about art:

    Q: How many visitors to an Art Gallery does it take to change a light bulb?
    A: Two. One to do it and one to say "Huh! My four-year old could've done that!"

  • Have a great weekend folks.

    The skull photos are of the work by the artist known only as "Laura." She created a replica of Hirst's sculpture using 6,522 Swarovski crystals and dumped it outside the White Cube Gallery in the middle of the night on top of a pile of trash.

    And I thought it was photoshopped. Thanks Ethan.

    Ed: remember your post "i want my art tv"? Have you had any news on that promising site? It was supposed to start this summer but I entered last night and there's only the old trailer.

    Yes, Thanks for the info Ethan...good to know.

    Federico, I too had checked in to see if it had launched. Not yet, I guess. There are still two months of Summer 2007 left, though.

    I have no additional information regarding Jeremy Blake, Mark. I'll pass along anything I hear though.
