James Westcott's ArtReview blog on Myspace VS. Spiegler, Stewart & Szantsos' Artworld Salon
These are both interesting blogs, and I do like them both.... BUT...
Artworld Salon's Ian Charles Stewart on the ArtReview blog - "my view is that the MySpace product looks amateurish, functions poorly and may be rejected by the MySpace community for invading their space under false pretences."
Artworld Salon's Marc Spiegler on the ArtReview blog - "I’m not a MySpacer, but I’d hazard a guess that at this point they are pretty used to people hijacking their “community” for commercial purposes."
Yikes, it looks like the Artworld Salon guys don't exactly know what they are talking about. Isn't that called.. gossip? Not a good sign for a blog that only allows comments from fellow approved "experts" and claims not to be a place for gossip.
So, what does ArtReview on myspace talk about? Um, pretty much just art. Anybody, or at least anybody who has a myspace account, can comment on the ArtReview myspace blog.
So.. due to an unseemly combination of ignorance, hypocrisy, and pretension... THE WINNER IS ARTREVIEW ON MYSPACE!!!
