Weekend Preview: Its all happening at once.

Liu Bolin

This weekend is the big fuck all weekend when every gallery in the city opens its doors with new shows and a new season. Art districts will surge with freshly minted art students and seasoned art connoisseurs alike and Grolsch will be consumed by the kiloliter and no one will actually see much art but that’s okay, they’ll come back on Monday if they really care.

What matters here is that there are too many galleries to list, and almost too many good ones to list too, so I’ll put down only the ones I would see if I weren’t spending the whole weekend at the Flat Iron Arts Building as part of their Fall Smartshow. Never mind the creepy drunks on the splash page, come by and check out my own work or chat about art with me, but don’t tell me what I’m missing on the outside.

    To whom it may concern!There is ntiohng wrong in supporting someone for being “your kind” or a ” good friend”, But when someone is involving in a “criminal act” and “terrorizing” innocent people, WE ALL SHOULD JOIN TOGETHER to “ERASE” such a criminal for his/her inhuman acts no matter whohe/she is. That is everyone’s responsibility in our tamil communityIf anyone who does not do that, that human being is “worthless” and a “traitor” for our whole tamil community!When you are talking about cyber crime, how can you leave out the “real villain” who terrorized everybody?????Only one of the following, could be a REASON for your cowardly act1) Are you a good friend of him??2) or ARE YOU AFRAID of him????It does not matter whether he is is a friend or you are scared of him, you should be ashamed of being yourself no matter what reputation you have in the internet world!
