"Like all fairs, it takes a while to get engrained in people’s calendars" (Anthony Meier, Anthony Meier Fine Arts)
"I’m confident in the long-term play here" (Tony Karman)
"It was difficult to discern how many people were there." (Rhona Hoffman)
"I never thought we'd be coming back to Chicago." (Frank Maresca, Ricco/Maresca)
Wow-sers. IF the above quotes from Julia Halperin's Artinfo.com article tell you anything about Chicago's Expo fair, those familiar, passive, indirect comments suggest total failure.
REGARDING WARHOL @ The Met
Adam Lindemann didn't like it. And sadly, neither did I. Ahhhh, Michael Jackson and Bubbles, we meet again! Just saw you last December at LACMA. Gober wall paper--hmm...like New Museum in 2010? Helium-filled silver pillows were reminiscent of a recent Armory show. Verdict: same old, same old.
SANTA MONICA ART HEIST
If you know anything about anything, looks like there's a $1.7 Million reward. The thieves stole his Mondrian (among other major works), some fine wines, and a Porsche. Ouch. My first thought: why take the art (it won't be easy to sell), and my second thought: what kind of security system was he using??
Last but certainly not least, Rob Carter's exhibition at Station Independent. This is a crap photo because there were visitors and an interview going on in the gallery and I didn't want to cause a scene to get a good shot! Amazing show. CHECK IT OUT.

Benoît Pype's Paris-Scope project debuts tonight at Mixed Greens. A quick glimpse through the peep hole reveals a room filled with over-sized renditions of his lint ball sculptures. Pype has also made micro-sized "souvenir" sculptures of the exhibition available for sale. Check them out at Mixed Greens tonight!
You can watch a great interview with Benoît about his preparations for his exhibition at Palais de Tokyohere (or below):
Guess who's back in town??! You got that right--your very own blogging fiend is back in NYC and ready to keep you up to date on art news, chelsea happenings, shark stuff, and everything Mixed Greens. I'm still a teensy bit upset about missing Shark Week 2012 (they don't have Shark Week in Italy), so this video is currently quenching my thirst for shark news.
Tune in to Radio Boston today at 3pm to hear an interview with artist Julianne Swartz about her recently opened exhibition How Deep Is Your on view at the DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum (on view September 2 - December 20, 2012).
