ArtReview: “Please be my friend!”
Okay, I can’t decide if this genius or absurdity: www.myspace.com/artreview. Though it’s pretty funny that the magazine has chosen to describe itself as a 58-year-old female.
Still I think when it comes to the Web 2.0/social networking category of the Weich/ArtReview vs. Wilson/Saatchi Online Throwdown, you have to give round 1 to Rebecca Wilson and the Saatchi collection, whose YourGallery section has become the MySpace/Friendster/Facebook of the artworld, dis-intermediating the space between collectors and artists. That should make Charles Saatchi even more of a hero among art dealers. Not.
