I have some questions about Sean's post. I agree with the inevitable
academic and institutional lag in appreciating cultural change, but I
wonder if this is necessarily a pernicious thing. i always [kinda
weirdly] like to think of myself as a tumour in the institutional
body, chugging away on my own cellullar programme, which may eventually
metastasise into some broader change in outlook.
When it comes to cnz, funding for performing arts invariably
outstripped the funding for painting and sculpture. so i don't a lack
of explicit support is purely a result of a cultural aversion to
newness, it's also about being a subset of a subset that wellington
rates way behind the symphony orchestra. the reasons for this make for
I'm curious as to what Sean thinks et al in venice might be a case in
point OF. et al being a poster-girl of decrepitude, obsolescence and
ornery mediations. I see this as good sign, not forgetting that
professor mule is also well embedded within the world of the art school.
What would a hexadecimal logic be like?
for some reason hexadecimal logic makes me think of
bees, and covens (something about the 'hex').
And in defence of 'art
scarcely descriptive, and pori=vides alibis for
gatekeeping of the
most merciless elite kind (?)
try taking that word away from me, i'll put a hexadecimal on you!
