Re: “Inside the Artist's Studio: Jenny Morgan in Bushwick

"Jenny Morgan - Self Portrait" is the first video composition of the acclaimed young painter from New York City. Morgan discusses the more intimate details of several of her most compelling paintings of the last 4 years, works that have defined her as one of the top emerging talents in the US. Known for her exquisite and revealing self portraits as well as her interpretations of other people in her life, Morgan's body of work redefines the genre of contemporary portraiture.

Filmed in August, 2011 at the end of her summer residency in Denver, Colorado. Directed by Plus Gallery owner Ivar Zeile and assistant Ryan Pattie. Composition and editing by Ryan Pattie.

Re: “Inside the Internet Art Bubble

I think you are totally right. Trecartin is 16th century kitsch and arcangel is sentimental victim of the 70's. I don't trust the defensive comments here. People are just afraid to think differently especially after promoting these artists in every kitschen - ha ha - and possible blog.

I promise you, as super stupid woman I can recognize my kind from a far. The works these artists produce are simply not intelligent.

Ta ta,

Re: “Inside the Internet Art Bubble

I'll never understand why some commenters feel so compelled to belittle others as they make their points. It's not like the comment would be any less valid were the comments phrased just a little more conversationally.

I don't know that anyone here would actually title the article "good art recognized as good", when I've made it quite clear that I think Cory's show was not good and the hype is the result of a larger public interest in the internet and social media. Ryan's work isn't bad, but it's receiving more attention because the internet is a public interest museums wish to capitalize on. This is stated pretty clearly in the piece (and I don't think it's any different than Schutz other than a medium that is particularly topical) but I realize that there are a fair number of people who find this whole line of thinking an utter waste of time.

Nico Muhly makes some good points in this regard and so do the commenters. Of course, they too are part of an ecosystem whereby commenters similarly patronize writers for playing into the system. We're all guilty of that from time to time I think (playing into the system, not patronizing), but since I've always enjoyed thinking discussing hype (for me it usually helps me figure out what I think about the work) neither Muhly nor the commenters here are likely to curtail future pieces on the subject.

For what it's worth, I don't think the piece is without flaws. David Edgar says the point's not clear enough and I think he's right. He's not right however to conclude there wasn't one. (This statement that reads as though it were drawn primarily towards the end of making a dig.)

As I mentioned earlier, I wanted to identify hype these artists were receiving and examine how it was generated and whether it was warranted. I think I did a fairly good job with Arcangel, but Trecartin could have been tightened. Had I done that, I'd probably still be dodging the mud slinging -- I have the feeling that virtually everything I pen is a hate-read for Droitcour -- but I would likely feel a little better doing it.

Re: “Inside the Internet Art Bubble

Well done for writing a sniffy article that just seems to resent good art getting recognition (good alternate title, Brian). You gesture towards possibly making some kind of critique, making little digs (mainly based on amount of "hype" they've generated though what they have actually generated seems closer to interesting dialogue, to me) but then trip up when it seems like you haven't really got a point at all?

Re: “Inside the Internet Art Bubble

I agree with your tracing of their respective paths to museum-art careers.

With the title, I guess you actually mean "inside the internet-art-that-has-been-suddenly-reclaimed-by-museums" bubble. (I'm taking into consideration that there was probably a period in 1998 and 2000 when museums tried to incorporate/commission internet art) If it is about the growing trends of featuring current internet work in galleries, I'm wondering why it's not constant dullaart (for being a big internet formalist) or JODI instead. Maybe their work is not as easily adapted to spatial presentation and would be confined to the browser and computing device.

I also can't help but compare the two in terms of various kinds of Caucasian male art-master persona. Cory Archangel does high concept nerdy/nostalgic things with technology (processual with lots of verbal puns like Nauman). Meanwhile Ryan Trecartin rides the high camp, intensified low-tech video aesthetic (closer to Warhol). Both make work that is sort of irreverent, but relatable in a specific cultural context. I know I'm overgeneralizing when I say all this, but while CA and RT's work's entry into the canons might change the game in terms of content, the "brand" of artist that these museums are choosing don't differ too much from the types of postmodern masters featured in my "Art since 1945" textbook.

While Trecartin's work became popular on the internet at the beginning of his career, I feel that "the internet" is a theme that dominates readings of Trecartin's work when there are so many other ways to analyze it. But I'm sure his appeal isn't limited to the fact it is distributed on a social medium...
