I ADMIRE ALL WHO TAKE THE INITIATIVE TO RISK CRITICISM BY CREATING ART. THAT BEING SAID, THIS S**T IS WACK. IS A LAME EXCUSE TO JUSTIFY GRANT MONEY. READ THE MESSAGE BELOW THAT ACCOMPANIED THIS GUERRILA POP-GALLERY, WHICH WILL PROBABLY BE USED AS SHELTER FOR A HOMELESS OR THROWN AWAY BY THE CITY. HOPEFULLY IS MY FIRST GUESS WHICH BECOMES REALITY. READ BELOW: IT STATES THAT ART HAS BECOME INACCESSIBLE TO ORDINARY FOLKS. BUT IF YOU ATTEND MIAMI’S WYNWOOD ART WALK, YOU WILL SEE THAT IS NOT TRUE. IN FACT IT HAS BECOME THE COMPLAINT OF SOME THAT ART WALK HAS BECOME A THING TO DO FOR THE MASSES, INSTEAD OF AN SUCCESSFUL EVENT FOR THE ACTUAL PURCHASE OF ART. FURTHER MORE IS YOU ARE TRULY TARGETING THE MASSES THEN WHY ACCOMPANY THE PIECE WITH THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE USING SOPHISTICATED VOCABULARY.
“Guerilla Art installation: Cosmic Changes render all social orders and materialistic acquisitions utterly useless. An experiential room constructed outside of a gallery or art space is placed in the public realm open for all to experience without any boundaries or invigilators. As art splits between the production of an elitist consumer market and a rigorous academic, polemic discourse so embedded in its own esoteric means that art has become utterly inaccessible for the public, this installation questions the energy source of such abstruse art making. This piece was created for any audience, it was placed in the most publicly accessible arena, a downtown sidewalk. Its interior presents the demise of a rich décor, in which traditional salon frames showcase images from the Hubble Telescope in lieu of traditional images, skylights illuminate from above as gold millwork decomposes in the hot humidity of the Miami summer. The ultimate destination of this installation, as many other things created by all civilizations, the landfill to decompose in the Earth.”
