The Business of Telling The Business of Art



I read an article this evening in artdaily.com concerning an exhibition happening at The Atlanta Contemporary Art Center through March 26. What business are you in expores the relationship between artists and entrepeneur in ways they claim take a more amibuous approach to the usual us vs them dynamic.
Unlike earlier conceptual artists, whose tactics developed in tandem with - and were often absorbed by - the mass media, many of these artists are not strictly oppositional. Instead, by highlighting the co-dependence of individuals and organizations they explore the moral ambiguities of our ideologically impure times.

I was happy to see that Alex Bag was one of the artists in question and hurried into the online gallery to have a look at an image from recent work. sadly, it is an oldie but a (pretty) goodie (1995).

I learned something quite interesting, however, looking into this show. While artdaily.com has the look of an online magazine, the is fact that the "article" in question is a direct paste from the gallery website. Alas, on further inspection, the same is true of the Jake+Dinos Chapman article in the same "issue" (albeit, in English). What I have been mistaking for an art journal is nothing more than an aggregator. I feel that I have been bamboozled. No wonder they were so complimentary of the shows!

"The First Art Newspaper on the Net"

Indeed.
