    What a lovely picture of Amanda!

    Nice use of Burrough’s a Thanksgiving Prayer.

  2. Amanda says:

    Oh dear lord…I didn’t know I had so much Gene Simmons in me.
    NYC did it to me.

  12. Great to have Amanda back — and this makes a great team with Nathan. You are right, we all need to do more and more in depth — except maybe the Frisco boys who are doing great!

    Have fun in NYC Amanda, and don’t forget to make contact with Maddy Rosenberg in BKLYN as I suggested to you; she’s great artist and curator involved in a lot of Gowanus Canal area stuff.

    I found Nathan’s talk about the middlemen, administrators, very clear sighted and invigorating. Since he has studied that, and I have too by way of art history, we seem to agree on our experiences questioning this situation. Thanks Nathan! I also appreciated the word ‘administrators’ — I have tendency to rant on about consensus curators, the Shark does so about consensus academicians, etc., but you hit the nail on the head with ‘administrators.’ That’s who they are and where the “problem” today lies. “Consensus Administrators,” (there are some very good and independent ones, not the big shots, but others), I would say, those who are apparatchiks and naught else. I stand with terminology corrected. I’d love to talk with in depth about this whole thing.

    Likewise, Amanda’s feelings about the fashion/art things, both positive and negative, were great. Since I am active in a parallel area, overlapping with comics and vernacular handwork like sign-painting, I know the attraction/repulsion there. But don’t forget that it doesn’t only go ONE way — every overlap can be made to criticize positively in both directions. Fashion-art could be not only stuff using fashion to “bring art down” etc., but also could use fine art to critique the brainlessness and absence of personal meaning in so much fashion. I know I try to make my double sword also cut double-edged and both ways. This has been far too inadequately studied and even far too inadequately applied.

  13. A lot of the realators in Bedford were musicians and artists back in the mid 1990’s. Ms. Amanda should check out the very Brooklyn local museum The City Reliquary heres the web site: http://www.cityreliquary.org. Also Ive heard the Cinders gallery http://www.cindersgallery.com/ is quite awesome and . You are also in Steve Keene’s neighborhood..http://www.stevekeene.com/home.html
