On Art World To End Sexism and Racism Shortly by Facebooking with 'Times' Critic

@GiovanniGF I think they did do that, but it was ignored. I don't know that they ever made it public though. They could have just used a blog or facebook for this.

@Bee For Brian Yeah, but we can also look to the explosion of magazines like Make for counter examples. Whatever way you read Harris' quote (either as lauding for curation, or as it was meant, as a critical statement), the statement works on a familiar binary we already know isn't useful. After all, it's just the visual arts version of technology is making us a) vastly smarter, b) vastly dumber.

Anyway, If I'm reading this comment right, the unwritten assumption here is that theology is what inevitably guides art making and curation. If curation is about identity construction and preservation —and I think it is — I'd say that's pretty accurate. Sadly, the classism Choire identifies in this post is part of that.

@gregorg I keep thinking we have artisanal because we no longer have manufacturing. There are a lot of people who like to work with their hands and those jobs don't exist any more.

@Nick Douglas I'd call developers inventors before artists. Artists occasionally make tools, but are usually more interested in subverting them in some way. Given that this is the case, I'd describe the process of testing software, as an artistic action. Developers devote an enormous amount of energy to coming up with creative ways to break their own software, it's tremendously fun to watch.
