Occupy goes off its rocker and other Monday musings
yesterday. I'm still confused as to why its institutional usage was ever questioned. This is an enduring non-profit that has seemingly always been supportive of artists and has pushed boundaries with regards to their exhibitions. Most recently they exhibited the fantastic Christopher D'Arcangelo "Anarchism Without Adjectives"
The occupiers' blog, Take Artists Space
, claims that Artists Space "pull[ed] their program out of a pure irrelevancy of New York non-profit programming". I strongly disagree. I believe the thoughtful D'Arcangelo exhibition is a strong argument against the occupiers' statement.
