Art Fag City at The L Magazine: The Best and Worst Exhibitions of 2011

This week at the L Magazine I’ve put together a list of the best and worst exhibitions that stretches the term “exhibition” well beyond its intended use. That’s okay; art is not easily categorized. As for reflections, this was a good year for art. A lot of much needed change is here and on the horizon. From Occupy Wall Street, to ArtPrize, to Hennessy Youngman’s youtube channel, 2011 is the year art’s started to unravel a little.

Early Webcam Project by Petra Cortright Censored on Youtube

Artist Petra Cortright has had one of her early webcam videos pulled from youtube because she tagged the piece with key words such as tits and vagina. Rhizome reports they’ve snagged in their archive; good preservation news for the art folk. They’ve even gone so far as to replicate all the original tags, so props to them for due diligence.

Current Chelsea Status: Fun

In an effort to cover more art before shows close, AFC decided to visit a handful of galleries and report what we saw. More than usual, I wanted to stay longer. Here are my notes from five shows at Mitchell-Innes & Nash, Mixed Greens, Paula Cooper, and Tanya Bonakdar.
