the exonerated

by the exonerated, i mean the live production, which concluded its off-broadway run almost a year ago now, and the tour is over too, but it’s now being produced by independent theater groups.

while i missed a couple opportunities to see it myself, it’s an important social commentary. find it, see it… or maybe even produce it yourself.

goodbye romania

goodbye romania is one of the most interesting applications of technology to message i’ve seen in a while.

the downside – each visitor destroys a little bit (well, pixel) of the site. or is that the point, really? be careful where you go.

something different: flip

having wasted most of my time and space here at the meta-roj blog on silly subjects like politics and spam, i’d like to take a few minutes, while i’m still conscious, to devote some attention to things more important, and i’m going to start with a bunch of 17th century paintings on display in south africa.

the current exhibitiion of the michaelis collection, including works of frans hals, jan steen and anthony van dyck under the curatorial direction of andrew lamprecht displays the paintings with a flip: the works face the wall.

here are some stories, from circa art magazine, the sydney morning herald, the independent online and art daily.

do you feel challenged?

in his own words

in his own words [quicktime or realmedia].

the words of president george w. bush from the 2003 state of the union. change the state of the union.

everything is on the record. the people have the tools. perspectives will be available.

[via metafilter]

update: if you like that, you might also like this, which we did here a while ago.

pants on fire

ben cohen brought the pantsonfire-mobile to baltimore recently, as part of the art car exhibition portion of artscape. unfortunately, due to a crush of events in my universe, i didn’t get to see it up close and personal, so i can’t drop a photo in here for you. fortunately, the net is there to handle that part for me.

“I believe that it’s disrespectful of the president to essentially lead the country based on lies,” he said. “If that happens, then I believe it’s actually our patriotic duty to make people aware of it.”

the official pantsonfire journal and itinerary don’t give many clues about the baltimore appearance, but the baltimore sun seems to think it was here.

Reaction to the effigy across the country has been overwhelmingly positive, Cohen said, so much so that he has commissioned a second one to tour.

maybe it was the debut of pantsonfire-mobile-2?

doing something for the local music scene, if a bit far from me (london), bob stuart has assembled underexposed, with hundreds of photos of working bands.

this is the other end of the spectrum.

art attack and attack

i just had to put these two stories together… from boingboing, art attack, on the developing story of steve kurtz, and from the new york post, wacko in ‘art’ attack.

the stealthy museum invader has hit the guggenheim (ny), the met (ny), the national gallery (dc), the philadelphia museum of art (pa), and, according to newsday, princeton (nj) and yale (ct).

not that these things are related, of course, but let’s get a statement from the metropolitan museum:

The Metropolitan is a repository for the greatest works of human creativity over the last 5,000 years. It is not a bulletin board. For us it is clearly an unwelcome demonstration of self-aggrandisement.
