I agree with Wired Magazine, which characterizes Banksy's interventions as "art attack." Banksy is a graffitti artist from the UK, who has turned back alleys into galleries and hacked the MoMA and the Met. Art attack, art activism, public performance, whatever you call it, handle it carefully.
This Thursday, September 8, we have Jordan Massengale coming to our class. Jordan is one of Miami's best painters. See some of his work here. After that, I'm going to check out a couple of exhibitions at the Design District: Carlos de Villasante at the Buena Vista Building. Villasante will visit our class in October. Also, this event, at the Moore Space should be fun. Please, make plans to come to the Design District after class. The first home work of our semester will be to write a critical page about at least one of these events.
