“Various Others” at Deborah Schamoni


Another Condo. You get to see other artists in a different space, which stands in for excitement. As a promotion machine it makes some sense, arranging a mass effort which garners some publicity, new sights, fresh air, collectors. If the gallery is a stop on the procession to history, legitimacy is an agreement between accredited actors. The fair may have accredited but, competitive, undermined the agreeable contract of networked legitimacy. We could just send artists anywhere and watermark their images with our, this different, architecture, our signature.
