Electronic voting for Art President of Dallas is now open. Campaigning began last night at Ro2 art, where candidates (and campaign instigators) Thor Johnson and Joachim West delivered stump speeches at the opening of West’s uplifting new show, Mother Earth is a Dirty Whore.
When not running for Art President, West’s “artistic research practice explores the intervening role of chance into formalist aesthetics by combining production commodity painting with a unique mediated monoprint/painting transfer process.”
Other candidates on West & Johnson’s Art President Ballot include former President Ludwig Schwarz, Gabriel Dawe, Arthur Peña, Ricardo Paniagua, Danielle Georgiou, George W. Bush (who has previous administrative experience, despite his weakness in the art area), and Chuck and George.
