"I thought we were friends."
Carried TV up three flights!
OOOPS. There's my dildo.
I like goats too. And little tiny dogs in outfits. And talking back to the radio. And making fun of the TV. And doodling. And writing stories...
I entered the store through the second level door I used in the past. I strolled past the shoes and took a left into what used to be the Plus Size department - because I am not a 'size' I am a 'PLUS size' or what Macy's calls a Macy Woman. I walked through prom dresses, SpongeBob t-shirts and very tall narrow jeans. It was now the Juniors department. I checked the sign for Macy Woman.
Many Art Crawlers had this to say about Joe's piece:
|(also heard: "The stump is TOTALLY art!", "Yup, the tree thing is art.")|
I loved this exhibit. We had great conversations with lots of great people. Most common was the idea that art is subjective. People felt that it's up to an individual to decide. But for emerging artists who were struggling to move forward there were harder questions about gatekeepers and critics. Who gets to decide if it's good art or bad art? And why?
Who decides if the stump is art and whether or not it stays in the show? In our case we did because it was my space, outside of my studio and I stood my ground with my esteemed artist neighbor.
What do you think about Brian's piece, Geoffrey on a Saturday Morning?
Art? Or Not Art?
We are going to continue the conversation on Facebook, Instagram and Tw
#ArtOrNotArt and @IsItArtOrNotArt.
