Go to @NYMag  Instagram; click the NYM Logo in upper-left to see a 2-min take of me talking about the Amy Sherald show at Hauser & Wirth. (It’s still in beta-version; bad sound; etc.). But JerryTV aka Criticism Maximus aka Digital Criticism is just a kiss away. Click it and see🙏

The 10 Best Art Shows of 2019: Number One: Toxic Philanthropy and How All the Art World is Complicit. It's to actually start an honest conversation; not just finger-pointing selective outrage moral-high-grounding. Xx via @vulture 

@vulture  1. In the spring, this activist group essentially crowded out the Whitney Biennial with a series of protests focused on the museum’s board member Warren Kanders, a military-supplies mogul who eventually stepped down.

@vulture  3. While the protest shows a path forward, an honest conversation about toxic philanthropy and systemic reconstruction has yet to begin. The art world is a structure awash with plutocrats, gross inequity, and obscene amounts of money.

@vulture  6. Not just claiming high moral ground and pointing fingers. What would it look like if the system really changed? Whose politics, which artists, and what constituencies would be served? It’s almost hard to imagine, which is what makes such change necessary. J’accuse us all. Xx

Basically, Trump is what would happen if the comments section became human & ran for President. (h/t @Choire  )

The most common form of painting in the world - *all* done by women, tens of millions a day - the kōlam. Made from rice flour the kōlam is made using only the artist’s fingers drizzling the material always in symmetrical geometric abstract forms on doorways and spaces in India.
