In and Out of the Studio
Two professors at The Art Institute of Chicago have published a new book, The Studio Reader, a compendium of essays by different artists and theorists concerning both the physical and conceptual space where art is made it. What's so interesting about the text is how it undresses so many popular notions about what and where a studio is. Cultural imagination has long been dominated by images of
Art Critic Jerry Saltz is licking the salt from his Work of Art: The Next Great Artist wounds.
Art Critic Jerry Saltz appears to have endured a few professional barbs due to his involvement with Bravo’s Work of Art: The Next Great Artist.

Now that the first season is over-- Saltz is licking his wounds in that he is admitting-- at least from what I gather from

When Groundbreaking Artists Become Kitsch Where Does it Leave the Rest of Us?
When Groundbreaking Artists Become Kitsch Where Does it Leave the Rest of Us? One negative aspect of the information driven times we live in-- and how it is reflected in our culture-- is the fact that great artists from the recent past often become kitsch figureheads. Take for example Frida Kahlo-- who is now more apt to be admired as a tattoo than heard about in a worth-while discussion about
Sketches of Subjective Truth
There's an old and dusty question kicking around metaphysics: what exactly is truth? Is something truthful if it corresponds to reality? Is something truthful if it is useful in describing the universe? I should approach this question with the appropriate caution: there is an answer there, but I am in no position to find it; I am an artist, not a mathematician or metaphysician. Formulating these
Do Artists Today Need a Blog?
Do Artists Today Need a Blog? The question-- Do artists need to have a blog in order to obtain the exposure they desire online? I’d say yes.

After all, some artists make a career-- intentionally or unintentionally-- out of being forced into the role of social and political provocateur. One need only visit a New York City art gallery
What Do You Want From Art?
What Do You Want From Art? I read an article in passing recently that asked the question, “What does the public want from art?”. The article-- which, if memory serves me correct was featured in the Illinois Times, focused on current art market trends and the complications between what the public desires to view compared to what is coveted by art institutions and
Shepard Fairey vs The AP-- what is the fight really about?
Shepard Fairey vs The AP-- what is the fight really about? Anyone familiar with the myartspace blog knows that I have issue with some of the opinions of Shepard Fairey concerning copyright and appropriation-- to the point that my opinions on the matter have been quotes by the Boston Globe and other news sources. I’m not going to go into detail about the Fairey vs. AP case because it has been
