Re: “Chloë Sevigny gets a tribute at Aurora Coffee

Often-times little quirks and flaws can be beautiful. I have a good friend who seems to have a thing for girls with very slightly wonky teeth, he consistently thinks it's cute. Chloe Sevigny is slightly cross-eyed, and I like that.

Re: “Lack of diversity in CL's 'Artists to Watch' warrants concern

Thank you for addressing this Cinque. Two friends of mine (one white, one Korean) were riffing on the seeming obliviousness of that CL article; the best one-liner of the night was "well, at least they all wore black."

But seriously, it's possible the 8 artists to watch are all white. In which case, a great follow-up article could address the implied lack of good up-and-coming black artists. I don't believe this is the case. I think Cinque hit the nail right on the head when he mentioned how cliquish and inward-looking the different parts of the Atlanta art scene are. The art world is very much about relationships and this can result in a homogeny that in-groupers are blind to.

Putting Atlanta's art scene issues to one side, I doubt a selection of 8 black artists would have made it past editorial review. I could go on about white-as-default, but I think that only distracts from the core issues of social circles and cliquishness.

Re: “Anthology FORM looks back at the year in Atlanta art

I'm pretty much bored to death of street art.

Re: “Visual art: Summerland

Irony's a dead horse imho. Sincerity's the new hotness. This stuff is cute and recognizable, no more, no less. Get your cute on.
