I’m often disappointed by “FINE ART.” My idea is art can be anything. When someone slaps paint on a canvas, THAT’S always called ART, no matter how bad or mundane…Art to me can be the work of a brilliant surgeon, a financial genius, or a ground-breaking scientist. ART should be exceptional…not just an easily attained label, in certain narrow catagories.
OBSOLETE is a store on Main St. in Venice. A brilliantly curated gallery filled w/ choice, curious antiques of a specific order, it also shows a few contemporary artists. In the window right now is an installation of 4 extraordinary vignettes, featuring objects from the store. I WISH CURATORS FROM MUSEUMS WERE AS INNOVATIVE & ORIGINAL AS OBSOLETE’S RAY AZOULAY.
