Oliver Kamm has a blog

Chelsea gallerist Oliver Kamm has a blog - not exactly an artblog but he does talk about his NADA art fair experience and a few museum visits - it's good. I like it because it seems very real, not just a promotional tool for the gallery*. I sort of felt like I shouldn't be reading it, and that I'm not supposed to share it - but it's an on-line blog right?

On the most recent NADA fair he shares that he broke even at 11:20 am, and the fair opened at 11:00 am. Also that he was misquoted in Artforum's notorious on-line NADA review. Everybody still talks about that column, am I the only one that isn't reading it?

His take on the new MoMA is here, a funny link here.

If someone wants to "invest" $3,000 in me I'm thinking about applying to this Chicago fair. It looks like artists can apply without a gallery. Either that, or I will wait for the inevitable and cheaper 100% artist fair.

I was wondering where Kamm went after he left Friendster - he's one of the few art people on Friendster I didn't get a screenshot of. That would have been a good one.

*note to gallerists running blogs, I realize this sounds like a cheap shot - but it really isn't meant to be. Caryn and Lenny are especially inspiring, each in their own way.

Oliver Kamm blog: a diary written by a 14-year-old girl about all the cute boys who showed up to her party would make better reading. No, that's too harsh. They're about equal.

Oh, you guys are tough! It is what it is, a Feneonster's journal - way better than that stupid Herd thing.

Looks like those struggling young art dealers are doing pretty well; did you see the "how much did you spend today" contest?

That NADA's paying off.

Oh, I'm not being critical—I won't begrudge a man his blog. I was just throwing up some appreciation for the beefcake.

Yeah, you're right, Martin. People should be able to have whatever kind of blog they want. In fact, I've gone toe-to-toe with Terry Teachout over this exact issue once or twice, as he sometimes seems overly anxious to delineate what does and does not count as a legitimate blog. I hereby extend the same courtesy to Mr. Kamm.

Consider yourself lucky to even read a blog. You must have a lot of time on your hands. Some people do manual labor and do not have time for this privilige. I wish I were like you.

Howdy!

Now that the discussion has degenerated down sufficiently, I can ask my question: What am I, chopped liver?

Martin said...

Chris - Sorry! I forget you're even a gallery!

Anonymous Manual Laborer - You're not only reading a blog, your posting a comment! You don't even know how good you have it - stop and smell the roses! Welcome!

ANONYMOUS - I'M NOT SURE. THAT'S WHY I HAVE A QUESTION MARK AFTER IT. SOMETHING BEUYS PROPOSED. MAYBE YOU ARE MAKING ONE RIGHT NOW.
