Bloggingheads on contemporary art
Bloggingheads combines two things I really enjoy, hearing from smart people about their areas of expertise, and the sensation of being talked to. I actually know a bit about art history and art criticism, but the contemporary art world's economic and social models are foreign to me. So this was cool, check it out.
(By the way, I really hope the word "contemporary" never becomes situated in a particular time the way "modern" has. I mean modern literature, by most lights, is a early 20th century phenomenon. I would hate for contempo to start to mean "late 20th century" instead of now. But I get the feeling that's happening.)
