I made a quick little trip to Bergamot Station today to see some art. #artLA

Material Matters @ William Turner (***) Process painting galore. A. Moses’ curvaceous atmospherics & Hayward’s gooey monochromes tops. #artLA
10:01 PM Apr 9th via TweetDeck

Dustin Yellin @ Samuel Freeman (***) Botanicals, trees graceful like ikebana, but anatomy, skulls & heads cheesy, clumsy & creepy. #artLA
10:10 PM Apr 9th via TweetDeck

Craig Kauffman @ Frank Lloyd (****) Plastic drape-formed sculptures perfect 4 spring–baby pink, daffodil yellow, seafoam green #artLA
10:21 PM Apr 9th via TweetDeck

Ernesto Caivano @ Richard Heller (***) Whisper-thin lines in these maniacally detailed, time-intensive drawings. Precise yet quirky. #artLA
10:32 PM Apr 9th via TweetDeck

Karen Carson @ Shoshana Wayne (**) Skies+dancers are monotonous & saccharine. Hand-painted frames too reminiscent of Lowe/MacConnel. #artLA
10:58 PM Apr 9th via TweetDeck

Kim Dorland @MMooreGallery (*) Must have collector that likes day-glo spray paint & muddy globs of oil paint cuz seems that’s all I see here.

Richard C. Miller @craigkrull (***) Wow–the Hollywood Freeway with NO graffiti–unimaginable. #artLA
11:11 PM Apr 9th via TweetDeck

Liz Craft @PatrickPainter (***) The gigantor cross stitch needlepoints and hooked rug wry. Clown face assemblages way too tacky. #artLA

I’m @artillerymag Art Debates. It’s getting crowded. I was thinking about Ustreaming it but the backlight from the windows’ll ruin the shot.
2:50 PM Apr 11th via TweetDeck

First debate is Project Deitch: Mat Gleason v. Margaret Lazzari. #ArtDebate
3:09 PM Apr 11th via TweetDeck

Gleason (arguing in favor of Deitch): Deitch isn’t one of the fuckups who fucked up MOCA spending millions on Murakami. #ArtDebate
3:13 PM Apr 11th via TweetDeck

Lazzari (against Deitch): 1st show is Dennis Hopper & will sell from personal collection to supplement director’s salary. #ArtDebate
3:17 PM Apr 11th via TweetDeck

Gleason: History will prove me right. Jeffrey Deitch will be the best thing to happen to MOCA. #ArtDebate
3:20 PM Apr 11th via TweetDeck

Lazzari: No closing statement yet she wins this round. #ArtDebate
3:21 PM Apr 11th via TweetDeck

Next up Economy v. Creativity: Robert Berman v. Shana Nys Dambrot. #ArtDebate
3:23 PM Apr 11th via TweetDeck

Berman (arguing for Economy): What IS the downside to money in art? #ArtDebate
3:27 PM Apr 11th via TweetDeck

Dambrot (arguing for creativity): Collapsed economy will weed out the huge pool of artists. Better art in tough times. #ArtDebate
3:32 PM Apr 11th via TweetDeck

Robert Berman wins the second round. #ArtDebate
3:37 PM Apr 11th via TweetDeck

Next round Lowbrow v. Highbrow: Robert Williams v. Ezrha Jean Black. #ArtDebate
3:38 PM Apr 11th via TweetDeck

Williams: Large section of artists cut out of the Art World–labeled as illustrators. Solution: Juxtapoz. #ArtDebate
3:44 PM Apr 11th via TweetDeck

Black: All about judgment & standards which are painfully short in supply. Lowbrow nothing more than mass commercial marketing. #ArtDebate
3:48 PM Apr 11th via TweetDeck

Williams: One fucking idiom always in dominance is the problem. #ArtDebate
3:54 PM Apr 11th via TweetDeck

Black: Lowbrow is putting a gilt frame around kitsch. #ArtDebate
3:59 PM Apr 11th via TweetDeck

Williams wins. #ArtDebate
4:00 PM Apr 11th via TweetDeck

Last debate: Pornography in art: Zak Smith v. Betty Ann Brown. #ArtDebate
4:03 PM Apr 11th via TweetDeck

Brown: When you are objectifying someone you are making pornography. #ArtDebate
4:09 PM Apr 11th via TweetDeck

Smith: Thank you to the drunk in the third row. (You had to be there.) #ArtDebate
4:14 PM Apr 11th via TweetDeck

Smith: I am touched that you think something explicit I stick up on a wall in some gallery has cultural effect on jack shit. #ArtDebate
4:22 PM Apr 11th via TweetDeck

Smith is the winner. #ArtDebate
4:25 PM Apr 11th via TweetDeck
