Perhaps the best thing about artforum.com is “Scene & Herd,” a blog of chatty (and yes, gossipy) dispatches from exhibition openings, auctions, art fairs, and contemporary art confabs all over the globe. The Walker just got the treatment from David Velasco, who attended the opening weekend festivities for The Quick and the Dead. He found the show itself “intelligent and elusive … flush with paradoxes and brainy feints and lunges” — but in keeping with the blog’s title, he’s got plenty of to say about all of the characters in attendance. Read it all here, from the cocktail parties to curator Peter Eleey’s silver loafers to Sturtevant reminiscing about the time Andy Warhol invited her to do one of his piss paintings.
The voice of the institution at its core, presenting news and views from across the Walker.
