I know, I know. I owe you.
Why someone doesn’t just put me out of my misery, I don’t know.
- I’m working on getting permission to post some of the photos I took on the Houston gallery hopping. Then I’ll give you the low-down.
- This week you will see eight weeks worth of SeeSawS. Promise. Maybe even more.
- While you wait, there are some calendar updates.
In the meantime, there is this to consider. I agree with the assessment. It was wonderfully installed, but it wasn’t straight forward with itself and created a weird feedback. Lozano’s bigger question of how exciting the CRL could be was spot on. But I’m wondering where the fault lies. Whose responsibility should it be for energizing that space? Its kinda in limbo. With the loss of Gallery 3 at the COOP and the Visual Arts Center not quite ready, the CRL is the only space for my alma mater to showcase student and faculty work. That limits what gets to be shown.
So the question goes something like this – Is the CRL program limited by the Gallery Director’s vision or the limitations set by upper-level governing bodies (i.e. the Advisory Committee, dept. of Art & Art History, College of Fine Arts, the University)?
That’s my school, this is my city. I want them to succeed. How and where can I push them?
Last year I focused my attention on the summer MFA shows. This past summer, leadership was evident and a better show emerged. Can I claim some of that change as my doing?
I’ll tell you ’bout what I sees.
