Post-hurricane Life at Here is a Fantasy
Now that New York has entered post-hurricane life, it’s time to get back to a normal pace of blogging and seeing art. Well, the last part is difficult given that it’s August and the bigger Chelsea shows won’t be unveiled until September. Although there’s a lack of new art irl, there’s always the internet’s back catalog. Martha Rosler’s recording What’s Your Name Little Girl? is a better way to start the week than most of what’s on WNYC. I have high hopes for the new blog Hunch of Mutton, a blog located somewhere between Glasgow and New York. The author aims for a drunken Channel 4 interview, a goal I gladly support.
On the blog, expect more I WILL PWN U, a series describing underrated art scene skills like knowing the difference between Juergen Teller and Terry Richardson. In the works is an essay on why Laurel Nakadate‘s overrated. I’m in a pea-sized crowd when it comes to my dislike of this Yale photographer, but my qualms with her work can be validated within 300 words – that’s what I’m aiming for, at least.
