DAMIEN HIRST

Apparently fabricated in a perverse effort to one-up his own prodigious earnings at auction, artist Damien Hirst constructed one of the most memorable artworks of the aughts. “For the Love of God” , a platinum-and-diamond-encrusted skull, allegedly sold for the jaw-dropping price of nearly $100 million in 2007, seemed to some to symbolize the excessive expenditures of a decade — and the arbitrariness of contemporary art valuations. Turns out the “consortium” that purchased the piece included Hirst as a member.

COLLECTOR MUSEUMS

Prominent collectors, perhaps emboldened by the skyrocketing value of their holdings on paper during the ’00s, opted to build their own museums (or exhibition venues) in lieu of handing over control of their collections to existing institutions. Miami’s now robust scene owes much to this trend: the Rubell Family Collection, Margulies Collection at the Warehouse and the Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation are all fantastic places to visit. In LA, philanthropist Eli Broad partnered with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art to create the Broad Contemporary Art Museum, which opened in 2008.

COMMERCIAL CULTURE AS HIGH ART

Accessibility — in the sense of appealing to potential visitors with comfortable, popular content (as opposed to obscure, conceptual premises) — has become something of a mantra for museums in the 21st century. The effort to bridge pop culture and the museum may have culminated with the Brooklyn Museum’s 2002 tribute to Star Wars, complete with costume displays and Death Star graphics, but that institution wasn’t the only one to perpetuate the phenomenon. In 2000, the esteemed Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum hosted an exhibition devoted to the work of fashion designer Giorgio Armani. And our own Tampa Museum of Art hosted a showcase of New York Yankees memorabilia in 2005.

«OHHH ELIZABETH TAYLOR OHHH SHE'S SO GLAMOROUS» -ANDY WARHOL

One of the great stars I met was Elizabeth Taylor, then just married to her third husband, film producer Michael Todd. Not only was she a true beauty, she was also down to earth and fun. She'd been a movie star since the age of seven and knew how to behave like one. We dined at a restaurant on Sunset Strip called La Rue and she was dressed to the nines (as was I) in satin, mink stole and diamonds. I'd admired her since childhood. She deserved the accolades for her beauty, sheer star power and the epic quality of her lifestyle.Then I met Ava Gardner - dangerously gorgeous and a headline-making superstar who often downgraded herself by saying she couldn't act. Well, she could. She had true talent and that indispensable star power.
The public was more savvy then. Actors didn't become stars unless they truly had the real X factor. There were loads of Marlene Dietrich or Hedy Lamarr wannabes, but the real versions made it because they were truly exceptional

POP LIFE EXHIBITION

Pop Life argues that Andy Warhol’s most radical lesson is reflected in the work of artists of subsequent generations who not only reproduce everyday culture in their artworks but also strategically infiltrate this realm, appropriating the mechanisms of the market, the mass media and the omnipresence of advertising in order to reach an audience far beyond the confines of the art gallery. The conflation of culture and commerce is commonly regarded as a betrayal of the values of modern art; Pop Life, on the other hand, shows that for many artists who came after Warhol, the fusion of the two realms is the only possible means of interacting with the modern world.

More significant, perhaps, is the content. Fang and Yue helped found Cynical Realism, an art movement in the late '80s that served as an ironic, chiding response to Mao Zedong's edict that all art should glorify the state. Yue's iconic image, a self-portrait locked in a frenzied forced grin, is one of the most ubiquitous icons in Chinese art today; that, along with Fang's much-repeated bland, yawning figure, made it clear how they felt about such decrees. At his Pace opening, Zhang's new work ventured for the first time into installation and sculpture. Both there and in his painting, it's more personal, but no less marked by authoritarian rule. His project was to paint, from memory, some of the scores of family photos destroyed by the authorities during the Cultural Revolution in the late '60s and early '70s (family pictures were illegal; Zhang's parents were among the many intellectuals taken away for "re-education.

FROM PUBLISH OR PERISH TO PUBLISH....AND PERISH!

By reducing the number of professors who have tenure, a university can ensure higher-quality faculty. Once professors achieve tenure, typically done over a period of about seven years, they are no longer held as accountable for the work they do, nor are they held to the same standards and expectations. Because their jobs are no longer at stake, much of their incentive to work, publish and teach effectively disappears. This removal of incentives, when coupled with the process that professors go through to get tenured in the first place, has detrimental consequences for overall academic quality. While attempting to attain tenure over their first seven years, professors face an unfortunate emphasis on published work, especially in the number of articles that they produce. This leads to two unfortunate circumstances. The first has been referred to as “publish or perish,” in which academics are pushed into publishing numerous new works in order to sustain their careers. This raises the likelihood that new work will be of decreasing scholarly value, as the priority of publishing begins to trump the inherent value of the work itself. A closely related problem has been referred to humorously as the “least publishable unit.” This phenomenon involves an academic minimizing the amount of new information in each publication in order to spread his or her work into as many releases as possible and to increase both the volume of his or her published work and reputation—often deemed an academic’s most-cherished possession.Of course, these are extremes. Most professors genuinely love their disciplines and teaching, and actually resorting to these methods is likely the exception, rather than the rule. But inherent defects remain in the system. In order to gain tenure, academics are often encouraged to publish the highest volume of information, sometimes disregarding the quality of the work; after gaining tenure, their motivation to work is removed because of guaranteed jobs and salaries.

BOY GEORGE

Imagine for a moment if, say, Robbie Williams had dragged a female escort across the floor of his house before handcuffing her to a wall and beating her with a chain. His career would be over, permanently. His reputation would be plunged to a level only a couple of rungs higher than that of Gary Glitter. He would be shunned.Compare this with what's happened to Boy George. Many gay people reacted to his incarceration with shock and disgust, throwing parties and club nights in his honour, as if he were a martyr, an Oscar Wilde figure. The justice system reacted by allowing him to serve just four months of his 15-month sentence. The publicly funded BBC reacted by inviting the star, after his release, to appear on Friday Night With Jonathan Ross, (where O'Dowd laughed and joked about his time in prison). And Ross, as ever asking the questions the public would like to pose, probed him about everything other than his despicable crime. Boy George had been forgiven. And not just because he has a good line in hats, quips and pathos-drenched lyrics. Not just because he is an apparently cuddly "out" gay man who once said he preferred a cup of tea to sex. But for the simple reason that his victim was male.

A worldwide study of sexual preferences revealed that females feel more secure if they have a mate in reserve. It seems you have the best of both worlds. The older male is established and able to offer you security and thus provide for any children you may have with him, but you should be aware that male fertility and the condition of sperm decline with age. The younger male, on the other hand, is likely to have a higher sperm count. He excites you more sexually, but as yet he cannot provide for you or your future children. However, the "sexy son hypothesis" states that sons born of sexy strangers will mature to become sexy men themselves, thus providing granny with plenty of grandchildren. Some Darwinists might say your optimal strategy would be to pair-bond with the older male but surreptitiously allow the younger, sexy male to fertilise you. But be careful, most men consider being cuckolded the greatest of betrayals.

Yes, important art continued to be created in the new millennium, but the big culture-related news of the Decade Without a Name is that it will likely be remembered less for its art than for the inventions that put the art into circulation.

Some local news stories go nationwide and cause a national alarm, and some simply go nationwide and then sink underwater unnoticed. But on the very rare occasion, a news story goes nationwide and is received with a double take and a "come again?".That's what happened when Houston became the biggest city in the US last week to elect an openly gay mayor, Annise Parker. Yes, that would be Houston, Texas – the largest city in a state that's assumed worldwide to be nothing but a hot bed of gun-toting, Bible-thumping rightwing reactionaries. Obviously, it's time for the rest of the world to start taking a more complex view, and start thinking of Texas as more than the home of George W Bush. The election inadvertently revealed the dirty little secret that native (and liberal) Texans like myself have known and been trying to publicise for a long time, which is that Texas is far from a conservative monolith. On the contrary; not only do all the major cities in Texas vote consistently for Democrats, but some rural areas on the Texas-Mexican border have been marginal to consistently "blue" for some time now.

The Vogels began collecting at a particularly auspicious time—at precisely the moment when New York became the capital of the art world and when the son of a Russian Jewish garment worker from Harlem and the daughter of an Orthodox shopkeeper from Elmira, New York, could easily befriend the people who were shaping culture in New York, many of whom were Jewish émigrés from Europe or upstarts from Brooklyn. These tastemakers grew up as part of a generation that was encouraged, thanks to New Deal programs that subsidized artists, to take art seriously, and they became adults in the wake of World War II, just as New York was replacing Paris and Berlin as the global hub for art and ideas. And, while not explicitly Jewish, the American avant garde was to a great extent shaped by Jewish collectors, dealers, artists, and critics—not least by curators at the Jewish Museum, who mounted a series of influential shows for New York School artists like Jasper Johns starting in the late 1950s. “If you were collecting, what you were valuing was, to a great extent, what Jewish critics told you to value—abstract art, color,” said Catherine Soussloff, a professor of art history at the University of California, Santa Cruz.

Prices for blue chip and contemporary art will rise. In a down market, sellers are reluctant to part with material, which has the effect of boosting prices for the great works that do come up for sale. Older paintings, like Warhol and Francis Bacon, will do especially well, but don't look for stratospheric prices for the art darlings of the past eight years: the jury, and buyers, remain out. Museum acquisitions from far-flung players will contribute to the trend, notably new venues in the Persian Gulf, some of which have formed partnerships with Western institutions like the Guggenheim and the Louvre.

Young people today are flooded with disconnected images but lack a sympathetic instrument to analyze them as well as a historical frame of reference in which to situate them. I am reminded of an unnerving scene in Stanley Kubrick's epic film, 2001: A Space Odyssey, where an astronaut, his air hose cut by the master computer gone amok, spins helplessly off into space. The new generation, raised on TV and the personal computer but deprived of a solid primary education, has become unmoored from the mother ship of culture. Technology, like Kubrick's rogue computer, HAL, is the companionable servant turned ruthless master. The ironically self-referential or overtly politicized and jargon-ridden paradigms of higher education, far from helping the young to cope or develop, have worsened their vertigo and free fall. Today's students require not subversion of rationalist assumptions—the childhood legacy of intellectuals born in Europe between the two World Wars—but the most basic introduction to structure and chronology. Without that, they are riding the tail of a comet in a media starscape of explosive but evanescent images.The extraordinary technological aptitude of the young comes partly from their now-instinctive ability to absorb information from the flickering TV screen, which evolved into the glassy monitor of the omnipresent personal computer. Television is reality for them: nothing exists unless it can be filmed or until it is rehashed onscreen by talking heads.

During nearly two hours of conversation, she not only reiterates her assertion of total originality but also finesses it until it's both a philosophical stance about how constructing a persona from pop-cultural sources can be an expression of a person's truth -- à la those drag queens Gaga sincerely admires -- and a bit of a feminist act."I'm getting the sense that you're a little bit of a feminist, like I am, which is good," she said.

PHILOSOPHY FOR THE 21st CENTURY: INTERRACIAL SEX

When having interracial sex just imagine what your partner is secretly thinking but can't say at loud to you. It will instantly make the sex hotter.

PHILOSOPHY FOR THE 21st CENTURY: ARTS

WHAT FEW PEOPLE ARE ABLE TO SEE

Warhol's paintings are emotional, nuanced, and painterly. His literary - rather than straightforwardly self-revealing - voice, in his books is one of the most memorable of the American century. Art that was really made in his image would be stark, reportorial and have a subtle conscience. But who is going to try to imitate the real Andy Warhol? It would be as hard as emulating Picasso. On the surface Warhol's art seems to deny uniqueness, but look at any one of his works and you will encounter a singular, hand-made, human object. Even his Brillo Boxes are hand painted, with slips and mistakes. Our failure to see the uniqueness of Warhol is part of our culture's frightening loss of sensitivity to real art and life - a loss that Warhol saw coming, and mourned.

PHILOSOPHY FOR THE 21st CENTURY: TOO DUMB

Of all the groups (straight men, straight women, and lesbians) gay men are the only ones too dumb to realize than a business partner is ten times more interesting to have than a sex partner.

GAY CULTURE WITHOUT YOUNG MALE SWAGGER IS NO GAY CULTURE



WOMEN IN REVOLT

This year in pop culture proved that 40 is the new 25.The cougar culture made its impact on television, movie, and the internet this past year. With the divorce rates, healthier trends, and changes in overall attitudes, women over 40 have found dating accessible, with a variety of men to choose from. Cougars, by definition, are women in their forties that date men who are at least ten years younger than them.

Depending on who you ask, either term can be described as an insult or a compliment. Australia's The Age spoke to 43-year-old supermodel Cindy Crawford about her thoughts on slang used to describe the mature woman. She did not mince words on the matter. "I don't want to be a cougar, I want to be a MILF," Crawford said. "I hate that word, 'cougar,' and what it represents. MILF (Mother I would like to f...) is a word I absolutely love." ..."Age can be daunting, but you can't stop it. I know 20-year-old guys don't look at me anymore. I don't feel it like I used to," Cindy admitted in an interview with British GQ. "I remember walking down streets in New York at the height of my modelling career, my hair up, and all the construction guys would go crazy. It's different now."

Sarah Palin: I believe that I am because I have common sense and I have I believe the values that I think are reflective of so many other American values, and I believe that what Americans are seeking is not the elitism, the uhm, the ah, a kind of spineless, spinelessness that perhaps is made up for that with some kind of elite, Ivy league education and, and a fat resume that is based on anything but hard work and private sector, free enterprise principles. Americans are could be seeking something like that in positive change in their leadership, I'm not saying that that has to be me.

THE «ALL AMERICAN» QUESTION


«People have come up to me and said« You must be the most American artist» and I've read others who think I'm un-American». Since all of us came from somewhere else-even the Indians came over from Asia a long time ago-I don't see where anybody can draw the line at being «more american» even though they always keep trying with ideas like «I must be more american because I'm blonde and blue-eyed and live in the Midwest or «We're more American than they are because we can speak english».

Front row at Chanel’s first fashion show in Shanghai, and the view is very different to the usual one of poker-faced editors in dark shades on the other side of the catwalk.Tonight, the entire audience is facing in the same direction, perched in a giant glass box on top of a barge moored on the edge of the Huangpu river, overlooking the extraordinary skyline of high-rises across the water in the booming financial district of Pudong. The night sky is alight with neon – translucent, surreal, glittering in a way that Karl Lagerfeld described earlier in the afternoon as “magical, with colours that look somehow different to Europe, and a kind of transparency about them”.Tallest of all is the Shanghai World Financial Centre, 100 gleaming glass storeys outlined in turquoise lights. Alongside is the Aurora skyscraper, where “Chanel” is flashing in black and white lights up its vertiginous walls. Other towers loom like 21st-century pastiches of Gotham City, with edges jagged as cartoon monster robots, or intersected with giant pink pearls.

«I'M NOT MORE INTELLIGENT THAN I APPEAR»

Did Warhol grasp the profundity of his innovations, or was he as vapid as his pose made him seem? Danto writes that Warhol had "a philosophical mind" -- a dubious claim: If he ever discussed ideas seriously, the evidence has yet to be revealed. A more plausible perspective comes from an article by critic Peter Schjeldahl, from which Scherman and Dalton quote at length. Some artists at the time did mull the issues that Pop art raised. "I don't see him doing that," Schjeldahl wrote of Warhol. "That's why we reach for the word 'genius' . . . He sees clearly. He just does it.

«IT'S CALLED GOSSIP AND OF COURSE IT'S AN OBSESSION OF MINE»

Man cleavage -- plunging necklines slit open to reveal chest hair, pectoral muscles, maybe more -- is back.Until recently, male décolletage was an androgynous fashion affectation limited mainly to sporadic appearances on European runways. But the look, including deep V-necks and scoop-neck tops, hit the U.S. in full force at New York's September Fashion Week, turning up at shows by Duckie Brown, Michael Bastian and Yigal Azrouël.This time around, the styles were more blatantly sexual and the models had a more studly swagger. New York designer Mr. Bastian said his show's vibe was inspired in part by "Latin guys" he noticed wearing their shirts unbuttoned, as well as the unabashed machismo of Latin American men in general. "We wanted to go back to a more natural body, a more '70s body with the models, getting away from the super skinny," says Mr. Bastian.

YOUTH WITHOUT COCKINESS IS NO YOUTH AT ALL

«I LIKE TO WORK WHEN I'M NOT WORKING»

Warhol's true faith, of course, was in the Factory—that "travesty of religion," Indiana calls it, in which "devotees 'confessed' to a godlike camera and were 'absolved' by inclusion in a community of dysfunction." Admirers of the Factory frequently invoke the precedent of the Renaissance atelier, but, as Indiana points out, the industrial hierarchy whose formal name was Andy Warhol Enterprises owes far more to the studio system of Irving Thalberg. Like Thalberg and Walt Disney, Warhol conjured a market for his own work through savvy farming of talent, business instinct, and relentless oversight. Like them, he wrapped an industrious creative culture in a cloak of casual glamour. Like them, Warhol benefited from the historical accident of film—the superstars were hardly the first artists and outcasts to embrace a subversive hedonism, simply the first to be captured doing so on celluloid. And like Thalberg and Disney, Warhol demonstrated a selfishness and self-absorption so severe, it seemed to those around him a serene charisma implying an ethical order. But Warhol sat idly by as his Factory superstars disappeared and despaired, as they drugged out, deteriorated, and died. And "there is no evidence," as Hickey notes, "to suggest that his overriding project was anything more profound than to make the art world safe for Andy Warhol."

The media might finally be tiring of the profane, misogynistic blogger Perez Hilton. On his Dec. 2 interview on "The View," the five female hosts of the show relentlessly fired at him from every angle, ranging from his exploitation of children to his infamous reputation of outing gays. This was especially surprising considering the way Hilton has been treated by the media elite in the past.For years, broadcast and cable networks and even newspapers have presented Hilton's offensive blog - dubbed a "tastemaker" by the LA Times - as harmless and entertaining. In 2007, ABC's Jake Tapper called it "snarky, amusing, cool and fishy," and, in 2009, CBS correspondent Erica Hill called Hilton's commentary "a little tongue-in-cheek, maybe some snide remarks here about some perhaps not so flattering moments."Yesterday, though, during his appearance on "The View," Hilton might have finally realized that his love affair with the media won't last forever.

To succeed at the very top and have more energy for one's work, a swaggering straight jerk need to be pussy whipped and be secretly homophobic, a lesbian need to make a power trip mixed with misandry, a straight woman need to be jealous of younger more beautiful bitches and a fag need to realize he's over the hill before he turn 30.
