Re: “Tunga‚Äôs Eternal Minute

Brilliant writing! Conceptual art as an extension of the urban experience that is already there. It recalls the Charles Atlas show at this gallery in February last year, as well as Takahiko iimura at Microscope in March 2011. I shall bring my thickest monocle to this one.

Re: “A Crash Course on the Brooklyn Art Scene

For every gallery, editor, shaker and maker mentioned in L Magazine's short list here, there are scores of bloggers and socialites chiseling and proof-reading around the discourse. The art scene is a remarkable self-generating kind of consensus that comes out of miles of screed and canvas. Stars and celebrities are pushed upwards by consensus and through gauntlets of scrutiny. This peculiar social organization is by no means a new species in the world. But that Brooklyn can now be said to possess one of its own, is something in which I think the borough can take pride, and something that perhaps many people Neva Wudda Thunk.

Re: “A Crash Course on the Brooklyn Art Scene

Or Coney Island USA! Which brings us the Mermaid Parade and has almost single-handedly revitalized America's greatest amusement park. 30 years running, and an immense infusion of creative energy into the borough. But not exactly what we're talking about here. If it were just a matter of not being elitist, this matter could be settled in a day and we'd have a nice "top ten" list of popular arts organizations that would make Marty Markowitz happy. But that's not what this is about, is it now, nor should it be.

Re: “A Crash Course on the Brooklyn Art Scene

I have piles of newspaper clippings of arts programming by local groups in G-point and W-burg going back to the 80s. And these will appear in my Facebook archives. (Worth a trip for readers who might like to see some background on the Brooklyn art scene.) But local arts programming is not the point of this story, nor should it be. For a community arts programmer to make the cut in a lineup such we have here, they would have to put out enormous additional resources and probably change much of their mandate. Just being around, getting grants, and making programs is not enough. Hence El Puente is not in the "top ten" and neither is, for example, that show that's been taking place on a barge in Red Hook forever. My point is, this is a competitive sport. The stakes can be very high in this game, with money and fame in the offing. You don't hand out Olympic medals to every Little League team just because they do worthy service for the community. And they DO such worthy service, for sure. But this story is about who's cutting it, not about who's been around.

Re: “A Crash Course on the Brooklyn Art Scene

You definitely forgot English Kills. But El Puente? Nothing but nachus for this great community cultural center. And for many others throughout the borough that ran theater and arts programming for a decade or more before the specialized "art world" claimed the land. But let's face it, this piece is about the art world in Brooklyn, not the arts in Brooklyn. Nothing wrong with that. Excellent work getting well-deserved kudos from L magazine. In another script, El Puente might have opened the "Roberto Bolan~o Gallery" and galvanized the newly-arrived art scene. But maybe they decided they didn't need the aggravation.

Re: “A Crash Course on the Brooklyn Art Scene

Very surprised to see that you did not think that Richard Timperio was one of the key members of the Brooklyn art scene. He's done more to help and promote artists whether well known, un known, young or old by hosting the most democratic salon exhibition at his space for over 10 years. His eye and ability to place artists together is unmatched. Sit back and think of the careers which have been launched because of his great eye and compassion for other artists.
