Goode Booth One of ArtPlatform’s Best Says Coagula’s Gleason

by Bill Davenport October 18, 2011

Speaking of art fairs in secondary cities, Houston’s Texas Gallery was picked out in a bit in the Huffington Post by Matt Gleason as one of the recent Art Platform Fair’s standout booths- the gallery featured semi-destroyed paintings on foam by LA artist Joe Goode, which Gleason felt “beg to have their torn open destruction continued.”

The intro to the piece is a hopeful/cautionary index for Houstonians on the eve of our own fair: Gleason called the fair as a whole “a high water mark in L.A.’s ascendancy on the international art world,” and said that “all of the Los Angeles art world was sent into overdrive with the vote of confidence in the sustainability of a thriving art scene here that this fair represents.”

Cautions: Gleason also mentions that “enough gallerists were committed to the long-haul to showcase their artists in a serious setting despite the slew of commerce on all sides.”
