Something's up @ArtistsSpace.

But is it really happening? And does it have anything to do with #OWS?

Steve, it's a fucking disaster. Columbia grad, internationally exhibited performance artist, Georgi Sagri interrupted someone's lecture yesterday by passing out a pretty weak "Take Artists Space" poem, and then invited kids who had no idea what Artists Space was to occupy the spae. Has nothing to do with #OWS - it's like "Occupy a Friendly Non Profit Gallery". What artist doesn't want to do that?

Charlotte Posenenske Reconfigured by Rirkrit Tiravanija at Artists Space

Rirkrit Tiravanija has established "Relational Aesthetics" as one the art world's current new movements. However, for this "intervention" he was invited to reconfigure "Square Tubes Series D", 1967, by Charlotte Posenenske with some personal alteration of the piece. Tiravanija decided to place all the Square Tubes on rolling dollies and invite attendees to simply roll them into whatever configuration they wish.
