ai weiwei smash hit, not to be confused with his shitty “metal video”

this is an issue that affects every museum, but to varying degrees. artists in a community often feel their local museum(s) neglect those creatives who are active in the area. here is an artist from miami, Maximo Caminero, who allegedly (caught on video) smashed a vase that was part of an Ai Weiwei installation, at the Perez Art Museum. Caminero claims it was in protest to the musuem’s policy of under-valuing and under-representing miami’s art scene. watch the video. while his point is valid, there is absolutely no reason for us to react as iconoclasts and break other people’s art. no matter how over rated they are.

also this action could be in direct retaliation to Ai Weiwei releasing this hot pile of mess upon the masses. Just as musicians want to become actors, some artists think they are musicians. this video and song are utter trash. watch for the frisson that comes from being embarrassed for someone else.
