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.
