Welcome to new members and hello to existing members,
I should get my hand slapped for not going to Red Dot Art Fair. They had a series of lectures last weekend. I am very interested in the collision of journalist and citizen journalist (bloggers). I did a little bit of research and I found 60 art blog sites that is based in New York City. I do very much enjoy reading blogs, because the content is a quick reaction to a subject. It's worth something. What exactly, I don't know, but the fact that someone, took a photo of it, uploaded it, and wrote about it, does count for something. Whether or not it is a grain of salt or it is priceless, requires us to make a value judgment on the validity, integrity of the blogger. Do you think it's worth having a discussion about this as a group?
To give you more insight on this, I found this youtube feed on the Bloggers Convention II on Art Review. This online publication is a great source for what's being covered in the contemporary art world. Wish I can embed the feed in this mail, but I'm afraid meetup is not quite there yet with their updates and features. Here's the link: http://www.artreview.com/video/video/show?id=1474022%3AVideo%3A147191
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend,
