Jim Shaw, Dream Object (A woman student had sculpted oversized human legs made out of fiberglass which had rough edges to simulate the effect of traps on animals), 2007, at Metro Pictures, New York, at the VIP Art Fair
I’ll say one thing for New York art dealer James Cohan’s new internet-only VIP Art Fair, Jan. 22-30, 2011 -- it was received with great fanfare, as if no one had ever encountered or sold art on the computer before. So I registered, and quickly encountered 15 error messages. Viva la revolution! Maybe the net should stick to what it does best: porn.
