This just in:
A friend tells me that the LA Art Fair, NOT artLA - had really good food.
They were served oysters, deserts & all sorts of luxurious nibbles whilst all we got at artLA was cold thai noodles, ittybitty rib parts & a tiny toothpick full with veggie squares.
They only got free flowing wine, while we got all sorts of liquor!!
So, the more "sophisticated" art fair filled people up with the things in the tum that make you feel well taken care of with a slight buzz that makes your confidence & creativity boosted.
Whereas the "hipster fair" got everyone drunk - which brings out the craziness & neuroses that make the art world....crazy & neurotic.
