'Stop listening to the fridge calling your name and sit down and get to work.' - Jerry Saltz
I attended a spirited virtual lecture by art critic, Jerry Saltz on Sunday
in which he talked about the art world and what will become of it -
here's what he said (a paraphrase as I was keying it as he spoke, but I think it's accurate).
'If you want to dig the hole in ground, go dig the hole in the ground - we are on our own now in the art world - that we are building a new art world out of passion, desire, visionary, drive - your stupid ideas and you need to be embarrassed every step of the way - as I am now and my backlash later from this will be terrible - I will have a hangover from it. Viruses come and go - but that art world will be partly gone - be like a vampire, stay up all night with other vampires - we must commune with others of our own kind - we need to teach each other and build new dialects with your stupid art - and have stupid little shows / if you build it they will come. . . Make what you are making - it just needs to be convincing. Be willing to be embarrassed.
Stop listening to the fridge calling your name and sit down and get to work’
