Re: “On a magical mystery tour with artist EK Huckaby

Here is a small bit from EK's artist talk at Poem 88... it follows from his comment above on being called an 'alchemist'.

Re: “The $50,000 Hudgens Prize should be making bigger art-world ripples

It is just the same, the same, the same. You rightly named the judges 'players', and the nominees are players as well. 'Players only love you when they're playing' and artworld-merchants only appeal to those who are buying. I am not, and the quintet of artworld-merchants named stopped being interesting long ago, when accolades and attention from galleries and buyers shut off their creative drives, turned them into micro-industries making product for a niche. Prizes like this don't help art; they further distance it and artists from both the subject matter of art, and communities and individuals.

The culture of art is not $50,000 prizes. It is people and ideas, close and near. The lack of interest you note is perhaps due to the fact that these five don't communicate to a close community, but rather to the artworld -- an industry only.
