Again, you are right …as usual. I should know better than to try to wrangle you from a 349am post.

My vitriol remains intact just belated and ready to strike, like an adder. A late night, near-sighted adder.

Am I using the word “curate” incorrectly? It was a long, long week.

It’s an open forum.

I use the word open somewhat loosely. The nature of curating something is highly selective and pointed in a way that the curator (or small body of curators, in this case) present a thesis.

It was risky to include them: how do you curate a community? It’s almost impossible to contain and present. So much of what Speak Up is about is extra-verbal, extra-visual—just extra, intangible. It’s like trying to curate water. And regardless of whether Smith thought the curators succeeded or failed, the fact that they at least attempted to negotiate the curation of a design community is worthy of mention, it seems to me.

Somehow I had missed Roberta Smith’s review; thanks for linking to it. (Ever since I cancelled my home delivery – although I do subscribe to TimesSelect – I find that I read the NYT less, or at least less deeply than I used to. Until good screen resolution becomes the norm, I suspect that that will remain the case.) Coincidentally, I was just telling some friends over the weekend that my favorite part of the show was the Panelite. Smith definitely makes some (in my opinion) valid points, but I wish she would have amplified certain arguments, like the Surrealism charge. Kind of sad to see that Nicholas Blechman didn’t even get a passing mention. That said, the work featured in the show didn’t really demonstrate his range. Good to see Coma get props.

So what’d you buy in the shop?
