This week on the internet

  • A friend of mine, who used to write art review columns for the Waikato Times, pointed me in the direction of this article on The Big Idea this week. Before I worked at the museum I never really took any particular interest in contemporary art, and while my stint as a National Contemporary Art Award gallery host did change my perspective, I can't say it magically turned me into an expert. I can, however, say that the various situations I found myself in over the last three years have shown me the art isn't just pretty pictures: art is memory and politics and spirituality and beauty and experience and pain and whatever else you happen to see in its reflection.

Marina Abramovic. She's pretty cool.
