In a pathetic effort to make up for a few days of blaring silence, with 2am crawls to bed, hour long Guangzhou bus trips, long burning Sichuan dinners, and other distractions from blogging, here’s a bunch of art.
On the other side of the world, in New York at P.S.1 is an exhibition I meant to write about ages ago, The Thirteen: Chinese Video Now with Guangzhou artists Cao Fei and Huang Xiaopeng, and sometimes g-town dweller Xu Zhen. The New York Times had a review of it (coinciding with Sotheby’s whore-mongering of Chinese art that seems to be a repeat of the late 80’s pre-stockmarket crash hysteria), slyly executing a single-word trashing of Cao Fei, who replies on her blog. Yeah! Art world tag-team slapdowns!
Not really an exhibition, but better. Suzanne G. – Giving Taste A Bad Name Since Kindergarten occasionally blogs, it’s like a magazine you always wish wasn’t being read by someone else in your favourite café, and it’s a colossal festival of hyperlinks.
