Cathedral of Shit

has taken a well earned GAP year

Baer faced-cheek

Posted by cathedralofshit on November 11, 2009

Is it just us being ungenerous and mean-spirited or does anyone else out there think that Josh Baer’s ‘Baerfaxt’ manages to strike the critical nexus of managing to be boring, fawning to collectors and dealers, and simultaneously self-serving all at the same time? This week’s issue features the sad deaths of some art collectors (we say, gun the fuckers down!), the happy births of some art progeny (no doubt to inherit mummy’s gallery in 20 years and run it into the ground) and a plug for an upcoming recommended art talk in Miami: ““Ten Things you should know about buying art,” by Josh Baer at Art Basel Miami Beach on Dec 5″. So that would be the Josh Baer who writes the email circular that”s erm, named after himself? Ah, sweet. Still at least he features heavily in Cathedral of Shit’s favourite art book of all time, Sarah Thornton’s ‘Seven Days About Me and My Chums in the Artworld’ so he can’t be all bad! Baerfuxt we say!
