ART FAG

I’m not sure if it is something in the water all the curators and programmers drink, but like we’ve encountered other weeks, this week everything seems to follow a singular theme. The theme: get educated. Apparently the local epidemic of people talking out of their asses has come to the attention of the higher ups, so they’ve dedicated this week to fixing that. The problem is so rampant that I doubt the heavy roster of artist talks will eradicate this phenomenon, but it may shut up a few pretentious fuckers who run around spouting massive generalizations and poorly constructed arguments (and I’d probably have to include myself in this category from time to time). Anyways, the point is they’re on to us, so get out your notepad because I’ve got a dense list of events to attend.

We missed this article a few months ago, but still feel it’s worth noting because, well…

In order to get you and me off the computer and into the much needed sun, I’m going to keep this quick and dirty. Vitamin D is calling my name, and yours too.

Apart from being one of the first unofficial days of spring, today is also the host of the VAG‘s monthly FUSE event. As many of you already know, this event is part party, part educational, part ass kissing. It has a little something for everyone (some of you may want to bring your knee pads, it helps when you’re… never mind). This months event, “Truth, Beauty and Utopias”, starts at 6pm (but really at 7:30pm with the talk, “TruthBeauty: Pictorialism and the Photograph as Art”) with experimental music from Theater Conspiracy, Ion Zoo, and Safa throughout the evening and finishes up at 12am with musical guests DJ John Cougar, Petroleum By-Products and DJ She making it bearable to stick it out to the end. Check out the VAG’s website for the schedule and more info.

There are two events tonight worth a moment of your attention. First of all, while your brain has a little more capacity in it (before the free wine) I suggest going to the Charles H. Scott Gallery for the book launch of “Filip 7”, and Hadley and Maxwell‘s book “1+1-1”. The launch starts at 7:30pm and is combined with a brief talk by Eric Fredericksen, a local writer and contributor to “1+1-1”. This particular group is pretty academic so pre-drinking is not recommended.

FASTWURMS

FASTWURMS must be casting a lot of good magic because it seems right wing groups haven’t paid any attention to their public declaration of witchcraft.

I sometimes wonder if galleries base their opening schedule on other galleries’ opening schedule. Take this week for example. There is only one opening tonight, and the rest — apart from one — are next Thursday. I suppose this could just be coincidence, but when thinking back to the past few weeks, the same pattern emerged. This is a curiosity for me. Do they do this to make it easier for everyone to get out and rub as many shoulders as possible? Or is it because they are in direct competition with each other? Whatever the reason, this is the scenario this week… again.

Seeing as the sugar and alcohol of this season’s celebrations have worn off from everyone’s poorly hatched New Year’s resolutions of abstention, we can all get back to work at this art thing. Obviously, ample time has been given to this because several shows worthy of your attendance are happening this weekend.

Apparently as the sugar hangover from Christmas and other seasonal festivities wears off, the realization that we’re all in some desperate need for some real culture swoops in and awakens our dying, candy coated heart. Therefore, even though there isn’t a lot going on this weekend, I felt it was of utter importance that we start the capitalist detoxification process and focus on trying to attend some places and events of a more interesting cultural nature than the best Boxing Week sale.
