Tate rejects 500,000 gift from 'unoriginal' Stuckists

Having spent a few minutes at the Stuckism website, I can't say as I blame them.

In the interest of full disclosure, I'm a Stuckist and will be in the upcoming NYC Remodernism show. Interesting article, though, and I think it raises some questions.

That site used to be way more garish than it is now, even, if you can imagine such a thing heh.

You were chained to a girl who would kill you with a look/It's a nice way to die, she's so easy on the eyes/She said "Let's get away" but you played it by the book/You're a warden's pet, she's a screaming suffragette

I assume that's the same Billy Childish as the The Headcoats Billy Childish?

That would be the one, yes.

I guess there aren't too many guys running around with that name.

Interesting. I hadn't heard of this group before.

I'm in with the In Crowd, baby. I go where the In Crowd goes.

Hmmm. Fascinating. Can one be a conceptual artist and a Stuckist both?

One could I suppose, but it could be confusing. Not that being confused/ing is a bad thing.

There are conceptual painters, like that guy who puts loads of paint on objects, abstract paintings, field paintings, the list is really endless. Then there are the critics and writers who re-frame intent. It really is fraught, isn't it?

I wonder if serial rejection by the cultural establishment would classify one as a Stuckist?

The Stuckist manifesto starts with "Against conceptualism..."

Which is a concept, in and of itself...

Exactly. I think I'll become a Stuckist since I like the idea behind it. Who do I call to join up?

Thieves steal fake Munch artworks

The pictures stolen on Wednesday were actually photographs of The Vampire, Self-Portrait and Melancholy, she said, adding that the frames were the only things of value.

Don't Panic.

Quick question crossposted in the photography thread: if you are entering a photo in a show, and they ask for dimensions, do you list the dimensions of the photo or include the frame? I feel like I should know this, but it's been several years since I entered any kind of exhibit.

Online exhibit: Art of the First Fleet

On 13 May 1787 eleven ships, now commonly referred to as The First Fleet, set sail from Portsmouth to establish a colony in New South Wales, Australia. They reached their destination on 18 January 1788, 18 years after Captain James Cook had first landed on the east coast of Australia at Botany Bay. One of the unplanned but long-lasting outcomes of this event was the large number of outstanding drawings of aboriginal people, the environment and wildlife found on arrival as well as of the early foundation of the colony.

Drawings have been arranged under four themes:

  • Natural History
  • Ethnography
  • Topography
  • History

Axial tilt is the reason for the season.

Thanks, Lori. Very interesting. The drawings are very detailed.

I remember a time, back in the late 90s, when I thought nonsense like this mattered somewhat more than I do now. Now I see well-educated people yammering about the birth control choices of their daughters, or gay marriage, and I think they are morons.
