Melbourne, June 2006. The story of an exhibition.

Blogging-visiting-blogging


While the 'boys' are under pressure, stuck with modeling clay all day, I'm busy at home working on the blog. Well, I know something now: it takes a whole lot of time to blog on a daily basis! One should not forget to take notes about the many places and people they have encountered. Then of course a blog would not be a blog without photos! Is the blog community only made of strange beings that keep documenting and scrutinizing their daily life in an obsessive, time-consuming way? As Carry Bradshaw would say: But if we spend too much time blogging, what's left for real experience?
I've arranged to escape the blog-trap by organizing a whole bunch of visits to artists studios, galleries, and art spaces. Melbourne has more than four museums presenting contemporary art, and dozens of artist-run spaces. And, obviously, thousands of artists. It's THE artists' city, and that should keep me busy for the next two weeks. Like many other places round the world, Melbourne's art institutions have adorned themselves with 'contemporary' finery, i.e. show-offy architecture. While ACCA looks like a tormented Richard Serra, the premises dedicated to contemporary art of the National Gallery of Victoria is now located in the Liebskind-getting-nuts architecture of Federation Square. (To be continued)

Terrific what Dan and Greg are doing. But can ART change the world? We are being taken over by huge conglomerates such as BP, Shell, Macdonalds etc,etc,etc, so what D & G's art could possibly create (by coming through the back door of trade-marks and fishing-rods) is to expose all this worldwide corporate corruption by making it plain to everyone that all that really matters is travelling 24000kms to Melbourne and telling people that it doesn't really matter what nike shoes you buy but which piece of ARTWORK you will purchase !!!!!!

Hey anonymous,

thanks for your comment. That's a pretty big issue. What Dan and Greg are concerned with is going beyond the critique of that sort of thing. It deals with some kind of 'heretopia', or specific utopia (Foucault). Michel de Certeau's "The Practice of Everyday Life" (1980)is a major point of departure: how human beings are dealing with globalized culture and habits, and how even though we've been told or raised, we still can create our own way of live, between the lines.
