From E. Worthy, Early 21st Century Art (New York: Kramer Publishing 2035):
"Another Rubicon was crossed in the mid-'00s with the publication of the GNY05OG (Greater New York 2005 Online Gallery). This Borgesian project began at the instigation of "blogger" James Wagner (as citizen journalists were then known). In response to a Stalinesque ban on photography at the PS1 Contemporary Art Center in New York, Wagner called for artists to sketch the show and offered to post the drawings to the Internet. The response was astonishing--overcoming their natural territoriality, apathy about other artists' work and fear of not being seen as "playas," hundreds of artists flocked to the institution and submitted drawings to Wagner. The online exhibition was so personal, idiosyncratic and non-hierarchical that critics began describing it as "better than the original show" (Village Voice) and a "case of the map becoming the territory" (October). The art was viewed all over the world, revitalizing New York as a "dynamic center of art rather than just a series of year-round vegetable stalls" (The Guardian).And then I woke up. Wagner's actual gallery, now containing eight (!) drawings, is here. Please note the drawings have an anti-hotlinking feature that may require you to turn off your Norton to view them (I have to).
Hilarious parody... no wait, I think you really mean it.
Thanks, I hadn't seen it yet. "Critic and artist Tom Moody"--hmmm, better start writing some criticism to go with that honorarium.
Actually, the original idea was from Michael Cambre, who contributed 5 color drawings.
Tom, regarding the norton firewall thing, if you can turn off the part about Referer headers under browsing privacy it should be OK. You can even do that just for a given site I believe. I don't use Norton products on my windows box, as I find them a bit unstable. I have a firewall in my router, and just anti-virus software from McAfee.
