Strolling through the annual Chicago Art Fairs
This is the 10th anniversary of Mountshang at the Chicago international art fairs - and here's what I've recorded so far:
2007(1) 2007(2) 2007(3) 2007(4)
2008(1) 2008(2) 2008(3)
2009 2009 (Next)
How have these exhibits changed over that decade ?
I'm no longer finding contemporary figure paintings that interest me. What happened to Bo Bartlett? Or Odd Nerdrum ? Or William Bailey? Or Claudio Bravo? or Vincent Desiderio?
I've never cared much for shock-art, but neither am I thrilled that that the fair has become more about decoration than anything else. Isn't one annual SOFA show enough ?
