What happens in the art world, stays in the art world (is a bad thing.)

I'm in Chicago, sitting on Kay's couch, reading. Last night I printed up some new sayings, or "text pieces," in the studio, pictured above. On my reading list, Sharon Butler's savvy take on #class (a think tank-like project at Winkleman Gallery in New York, organized by artists William Powhida and Jennifer Dalton) on Huffington Post and this ridiculous recap on comments Richard Flood made about blogs and Jerry Saltz's facebook page on Hyperallergic.

Now I'm going to listen to "Obama's Theologian:" David Brooks and E.J. Dionne on Reinhold Niebuhr and the American Present. "Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone; therefore we are saved by love." - Niebuhr
