Midwestern Exports #2: Tate Foley, Work Press & Publication, St. Louis, MO

A few years back, I was the gallery director at a sort-of-large non-profit in Eugene, OR.  It was a be-careful-what-you-wish-for scenario; sometimes it was wonderful, sometimes it was a nightmare.  There were six (!) galleries to fill, the ship was always sinking, everything was constantly in flux.  All I wanted was enough stability to put together 16 months of programming, so I wouldn’t have to scramble to curate group shows in six weeks or less.  Anyway, I found myself in one of those too-common, 11th-hour-type situations, organizing a show on Oregon Trail that I was sure was going to be a career-ender.  It wasn’t.  Miraculously, a bunch of really great artists answered the call, the show was hilarious, my job was safe for another six months.  Tate Foley was one of those artists that put a Band-Aid on my then-oozing career.

His piece was a riff on the healthcare debate, using the vocabulary of the classic computer game in question: “Mary has a broken arm and has no healthcare.  Feed her to the wolves? >[Y/N]_”  Shortly thereafter, Tate and I set about planning a solo exhibition at the gallery, which never happened. The non-profit’s board ended up more-or-less folding the space without any warning, forcing me to cancel a year’s worth of exhibits. Today, my biggest regret of the whole debacle is not doing that show, no question.  It was clear that Tate had a gift for text-based work.  His layouts, color choices, and hand-drawn text were very strong.  And he had a real flair for maximal installation.  His Investigations into the Super Super (2010) invited positive comparisons to Mission characters like Barry McGee and Margaret Kilgallen.

larry clickbait

To those that argue that the only reason Larry is mentioned in the press is for clickbait, someone should have reminded the press before late 2014. Starting 2 weeks after the Larry bullshit tweet (October 1, 2012) up until October 2014 there were approximately 1,650 ‘Larry Stylinson’ news results. Comparatively, theres 1,640 ‘Larry Stylinson’ news results in the last 10 months. So maybe the press just suddenly caught on late last year about using Larry for clickbait or 1DHQ lifted restrictions and the Larry mentions are part of a bigger strategy.

2 years - 1,650 news results

Last 10 months - 1,640 results

From a friend:

My mom (who works PR) after I told her about the Ricky/Darren Italy crap: “Having your client be on parade 24/7 is doing you and your business zero favors. Yes, you might get temporary expanded exposer, but when your client gets burnt out (mentally/physically) and has to be hospitalized, what are you going to do then? No work = no pay. You want press-Public events? Ok, go for it. Airport comings and goings? Not my favorite, but it is a great location for media build. But personal housing locations and R&R  moments after a work session? No. There are some things that should be off limits. Your clients health and safety comes first. Period. ” She was flabbergasted that he gave out the location of their hotel. She asked me if Darren was doing some event at the hotel. I told her no, that he was using it as housing during filming. She got so mad. She started calling Ricky a “thirsty bottom feeder with a god complex.”

anonymous asked:

If I burn the imperial flag in front of imperials what would happen I want a comment from all of you guys (Ezra Sabine Zeb Kanan Hera Ashoka and Chopper)

Kanan: The consensus from everyone on board is that it would be a pretty stupid thing to do, really. Look, we’re all for making a stand and sticking up to the Empire, but you don’t go out into the street and advertise it, you work where you can in the shadows with the support of good people. Public demonstrations work fine when the press and the population are on your side. Public demonstrations work if the entire population is behind you. If it’s just you on the street with a flag, you’re going to get shot or arrested. 

You can’t run a revolution on your own. That’s what the rebellion is for.

Hera: Kanan is right. It’s foolish to make a stand in front of the Empire if you’re not supported. You burn a flag in front of an Imperial with no witnesses and no back up and you get killed and no one knows or cares that you tried to do something to defy them. Proper resistance takes numbers.
