Crazy busy. I will be teaching an experimental drawing class in January, and there were about 30 books from my personal collection that I desperately needed to teach the course that were in the very back of a storage pod that was stacked with boxes 7 wide, 6-7 tall, and 10 deep. In the middle of these layers were tied off pieces of plywood and one of my husband's motorcycles. My amazing husband spent Saturday unloading the pod (that was originally loaded by 3 burly men) & loading it back up again so I could get to my books. He saved me untold time and grief... many of the books that I needed images from were exhibition catalogs & out of print books. We never anticipated that we would be living in limbo so long, or that I would teach a class here this soon.

In other news, Nov 20 was International Overalls Day. I opened my mail to find that I received an "International Overalls Day Award" for my "Art World Truths" series. The professor who sent me the award lives in Norway and is writing a book on overalls. I am almost finished with the newest Art World Truth piece.... I have had to fill in the text on this one, because it is embroidered on a print dress.

Dave Hickey quotes, from his lecture at The Smithsonian:

"One of the problems with artists is that they have moral principles. They are involved in a vocation. They have taken an oath to be free. They have taken an oath to have contempt for their peers. They have taken an oath to get up on the front of the wave in the absolute pretense of invulnerability. All of these fragile people, out there in the dark, pretending to be invulnerable."

"What if all the people at Art In America got up one morning and said, "This is all crap... let's just wait until we get some good stuff to publish another issue..."

The whole lecture is here.

I am working furiously, but also writing grants that have December deadlines. Planning my solo exhibition for next year, and rying to wrap up the pieces that will be in it. Figuring out what will go to the gallery for exhibition during Art Basel. Preparing to teach a class in January. Starting a new blog, The Last Art Taboo. Check it out. Let me know if you know any appropriate artists I can interview.
