Is this the same Roberta Smith that wrote -
"Swoon has been known for the large-scale linoleum block prints of expertly drawn city folk that she has been plastering around the Lower East Side and Brooklyn for several years"
but didn't write that until covering Swoon's solo show at Deitch? Why not just write about the art, why follow the market all the time?
mean me, part ii: That part about being "daring young pioneers" moving from Brooklyn to Chelsea... that's a joke, right?
mean me, part iii: Someone who went to those openings please tell me that Nick Lawrence's work is much much better in real life. Are these the best slides crossing Bill Brady's desk? This is the same Nick Lawrence that used to be a partner in LFL and now owns Freight + Volume, right? This is the same ATM Gallery that... never mind.
