The folks at the 2013 Texas Biennial have announced most of their selection of this year’s participating artists. The official press release is supposed to come out today, but they began releasing the selection yesterday via Twitter— one artist at a time. Beginning mid-afternoon, they posted a name every few minutes. After releasing the names of over 60 artists, the final message was posted close to midnight: “Thank you, Twitterverse! Hoping to confirm a few more artists, but for now — GOOD NIGHT!”

It’s ironic that a medium designed to speed and streamline the transfer of information is being used instead to retard and withhold it- bravo to Big Medium for highlighting the coercive, exclusionary nature of social media!”

The main purpose of such a selection to to give one angle from which to lodge one’s complaints. Thank you, curators. You have come through again.

Joe Spurlock June 11, 2013 - 13:15

Thank the curators? Another laugh, it took forever and anyone who has been in the scene in TX could have guessed half that list. (point being, if half of it was predetermined why on earth did it take so long) All and all, who cares; The TX Biennial is as important as the Houston Art Fair(s)
