One day, Bill O'Reilly will die. I think about that a lot.

I'm seriously surprised he doesn't broadcast the show while wearing a white hood.

Wow that's some spiel, even by art gallery standards!

says in the article it's essentially all based around the theme of endurance...

idk, i didn't think it was that bad.  i kinda like this new concept of installation pieces, it still has some life left in it before it becomes passé like every other art form.  what's the argument here for making it cringy?

I sat through critique seminars with him and read his artist statements, listened to him defend his work. Art historically and conceptually, everything he said/says is fine and sound enough, but that doesn't make the work good. I don't think a lot of his stuff was strong enough to hold up the work's description or concepts, and this work in particular is boring and shitty. Duchamp done did it, and he did it well. I think a lot of contemporary art is so far up its own ass that it becomes cringey.

i agree to an extent.  i used to be completely critical of contemporary art-- for me a lot of it boils down to just stupid performance pieces and tired conceptual installations and videos...

 

but idk if i'd go so far as to say "it's bad", as if art was something you could succeed or fail at; i definitely make it known whether or not i enjoy a piece or what it represents, but i feel like it's a bit much to sit there and say "no, fuck you -- you failed at self-expression" lol.

 

i don't necessarily "get" this particular piece, and part of me feels like the direction art has been recently going in is overly conceptual in lieu of what we used to identify as real "talent" (i.e. the mediums that require real craftsmanship, like oil paints and bronze sculptures)...but the other part of me has been relentlessly studying art for the past 3-4 years in school as electives, and now i feel like i've finally started coming around to appreciate the new wave of post-modern art.  he certainly is doing something unique, and obviously the pieces within the installation all serve a significant purpose to his personal life...so who am i to say that he's a bore and that he didn't do something well enough?  trust me, i'll be the first one to roll my eyes at one of these hacky "weird for the sake of weird" artists, but in this particular case i feel like this guy's pretty genuine with his presentation.  i wouldn't mind going to see it in person, i'll just leave it at that.

You have a nice look at it. And you're right, you can't fail at self-expression. And I'm definitely not saying he failed at that. But that rabbit hole can go deep, you know? I personally think it's shit and I'm not interested in it (and I never thought it was all that interesting in person). Art can be frustrating, because sometimes Poe's law severely kicks in, which I guess in itself might be a desired affect.
