Who has the energy to read 141 characters on art shows anymore?

Welcome To Art In 140 Or Less

About

As an unabashed art fanatic, I can’t help but notice our collective shortened attention span when it comes to reading art reviews. Most of the blogs, online magazines and even, some of the art press stalwarts have bowed to the quick and easy review or article. In their defense, who has time to read through all those thoughts anymore?! I have other things to do like drink and stare at my phone, pretending I’m getting important text messages!

While I prefer to read longer critical analysis myself, that just does not seem to be the way things are moving. And well…I figured if you can’t beat them, join them and while you”re at it, why not take to the utmost extreme. So Art In 140 Or Less will fill that void, making reviews even less reading than before!

About Me:
I’m elusive, evasive and a contrarian at heart. None of my background really matters since who can’t write reviews at 140 characters.
