|MIKE NEVILLE: Vortex painting | Whikham/GB | Aug 07|
Hello, I own a painting, "VORTEX", 1963 oil on paper, 24"x 24" by Aldo Tambellini. It was a gift. I would like to include it with my home owners insurance. I would appreciate it if you could give me some idea of it's value. Thank you very much, Mike Neville
|ALAN MURDOCK: Boris interview | Jul 26|
I received a comment on one of my posts this last week indicating that an interview I conducted with Boris Lurie is now included on a website dedicated to the NO!art movement. The website, http://www.no-art.info, can be read in English or German.
|ALAN MURDOCK: Individuality | Mar 12|
I've been working on some ideas about individuality and the value of the individual as it changes through history, especially in relation to how individuality plays out in art. It seems to me that modernism in the early 20th century was much more willing to accept and promote people expressing their individuality (note the publication of the Founding Manifesto of Futurism in a Parisian paper in 1909) while now we promote professionalism and ability to work as a team. I'm looking at artists like Acconci who moved from fine art and now runs an architectural firm and Ken Friedman who moved from Fluxus to design. It seems to me that because art has become completely professional, something [NO!art founder Boris] Lurie pointed to in his interview I recently red, and is based solely on the money, that team design is the place artists can, in contrast to isolated individualist art, promote their ideas to the world in a way the art world rarely allows today.

Dear sirs, Before I go on I simply must give you a background of myself and my certain disposition. I am e-mailing you for the soul reason of a report I'm doing. I am a senior in high school (a Christian school) and plan on going to art school (despite the administrations attempts to get me to go to a nice Christian school and give up my free will). My last moments at my school have been a complete cynical hell because the people who run the school are fascists (to be into are is one of the evils of the world it must mean your into drugs and everything els then). However throughout my life at that school I have some up with the eccentric theory that God is a creator and thus by creating art we are within ourselves godliness. I have had a traumatizing childhood, yet a perfect family life. So everything has left me conflicted.
