How do you get on this gravy train?

February 24, 2013


Hate large public art galleries. They are like zoos for art. The art goes a little crazy. The Art Gallery of Ontario (known as ‘AGO’ from the latin word meaning ‘back then’) has appointed Andrew Hunter as its new Frederick S. Eaton Curator of Canadian Art. (Sounds like a CEO of an oil company.)

“Hunter is a co-founder and co-principal, along with artist Lisa Hirmer, of DodoLab, an international program that focuses on research and positioning art as a means to explore broader community issues.” (Toronto Star, Page E3, Feb. 24, 2013)

Friends  of mine, and friends across the planet, have been discussing these issues, in bars, over drinks, for years. No one paid us. Nothing against Mr. Hunter, but how do you get on this gravy train?

Art goes out for a smoke
