Hot time summer in the city

Hot read #1: Mark Barry’s post on his Chelsea/uptown crawl on ionarts. I especially like what he says about printmaking and the print show (up til Sept. 18) at MoMA. Also, the DADA show‘s still up til Sept 11 and here’s the reason go go, courtesy of Artblog pal Nancy Miller Batty, art historian and former curator, Delaware Art Museum — raise your hand if you’ve seen any of this in the real world before. No, that’s right, mostly you know it through reproduction — here’s the chance to see it in person.

Hot event and hot read #2: A conversation between Lawrence Rinder whose new book, Art Life: Selected Writings 1991-2005 is just out– and Bill Arning, AA Bronson and Andrea Fraser. July 31, 6:30 pm at White Columns. Sponsored by White Columns and Gregory R. Miller & Co. publisher of Rinder’s book.

We at Artblog love Lawrence Rinder for his power to the people 2002 Whitney Biennial. And we just love Andrea Fraser, period, for her outrageous attacks –which are always right on target –on institutions in the art world.
