To quote a footnote regarding photography, language, ambiguity, and a smile.
25. Abe, The Box Man: A Novel (New York, NY: Vintage, 1999) 81; Hako otoko akz 24:44. In the Japanese original, “one grins” is “hito wa ha o muku,” which literally means “one reveals one’s teeth,” suggesting not purported congeniality (as “grin” might) but hostility and readiness to attack. (This is a minor point of contention, as “ha o muku” is a slightly unidiomatic expression; “kiba o muku” [literally “to reveal one’s fang’s”] is definetely a hostile act, while “ha o miseru” [literlly “to show one’s teeth] is a performance of congeniality. It is unclear which Abe had in mind when he used an expression midway between the two, as his expression is less idiomatic than those two are.)
From: The rhetoric of photography in modern Japanese literature: materiality in the visual register as narrated by Tanazaki Jun ichiro, Abe Kobo, Horie Toshiyuki and Kanai Meiko / by Atsuko Sakaki. (Boston: Brill 2015) p.67

The latest episode of “Fielding Practice,” the Chicago-centric podcast/gabfest featuring Duncan MacKenzie, Dan Gunn and me has just been posted on the Art21 Blog as part of Bad at Sports’ ongoing Centerfield column. Â This week, regular panelists Duncan MacKenzie, Dan Gunn and I discussÂ the demise of Next/Art Chicagoâ€“which up until last week had been the USâ€™ longest-running art fair â€“and the subsequent rise of Expo, a new Chicago-based art fair slated to debut on Navy Pier in September 2012. We also review current exhibitions byÂ Laura Letinsky at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, andÂ Molly Zuckerman-Hartung, whoseÂ showÂ Negative JoyÂ is on view at Corbett vs. DempseyÂ gallery, plus we offer some â€œbest betâ€ picks for the coming month in Chicago. As an added bonus, this week we keep the conversation blissfully short, at a running time of approximately 38 minutes â€” as always, thank you so much for tuning in!
Holy shit, I left you hanging on the busiest gallery weekend ogfthe year! Well, I made about a thousand maps, all of which were posted over at Chicago Art Magazine, and between those, working on the annual Renaissance Society benefit auction, teaching, art making, blah blah blah, I totally missed my weekend picks. Stupid me! Oh well, I’m back. This weekend, I’m actually going to be out of town, shooting out in Ohio (both kinds, to answer the inevitable question), but there are some great shows ya’ll should hit while I’m gone, I sure as shit want to hit ’em when I get back. That is all…
