What a convocation!!! My favorite guffaw of the evening came when Tariqa Waters adroitly spoke of her confusion about the hipster guys in Pioneer Square, with their period-specific BEARDS. She said their appearance made her wonder if she should use the back or front door. Thanks, Tariqa, for making an excellent point not just about justice, but about the dubious tonsorial choices of today's wannabee antebellum mob.

But in the current climate, I vote for a hassle-free workplace.

Duchampian fart jokes ARE more generally popular than Judy Chicago's Dinner Party. The latter was a collaboration that managed to alienate many of the woman artists involved, in part because JC allegedly was a totalitarian who showed no sense of humor. I appreciate a Beres sense of humor; it hints at sophistication and makes light of the sacrosanct, in a white bad boy way we have all adjusted to by now, in order to survive Western Civilization. A real collaboration WITH the women involved would have been interesting, maybe titillating for all.

Jen, Thank you for popping the glass bubble like a zit. You’ve written an extremely fair and droll appraisal of the Chihuly phenomenon, in a way that helps shield my eyes from the glare of Dale’s immeasurable ego. Reading your critique (which should be distributed at the door of the vanity museum; I have access to a mimeograph machine) offered me a glimpse of my own proletarian compassion for the careering, obsessive-compulsive craftsman.

What a creepy introduction to your colorful send-up of a questionable affair! Remember when Seattle had an art fair (also creepy, but not in a refurbished-Waldorf sort of way)?
Until recently Vancouver has been so refreshingly art-socialist (glad you mention "Commodities Start Talking at the Millionaire Fair"), but I have friends dwelling there who left behind their radical left-wing upbringing in the US to joyfully embrace the new consumerist capitalist paradigm. McMansion and all. It is too bad. However, if they would buy some of my art and hang it in their awful house, I would probably avert my critique.

I need to see this show. It's refreshing to read your critical thoughts on surrealism, because I have made the effort and haven't found much substance there. My own work has been called "surrealist" so many times, but I can't relate to their tenets, aside from some of their dabbling in automatic writing and stream-of-consciousness. Gimme some Dada.
