Poor Little Billionaires

Baselitz does it again

Georg Baselitz

Baselitz, idiot

Back in 2013 painter Georg Baselitz proclaimed that “women don’t paint very well“.  Now the old timer’s at it again, claiming; “if women are ambitious enough to succeed, they can do so, thank you very much. But up until now, they have failed to prove that they want to. Normally, women sell themselves well, but not as painters.”  Guess he hasn’t heard of a little thing called the glass ceiling, or the gender pay gap.  More here.

Venice FOMO


Going crazy looking at all of the juicy stuff from the Venice Biennale on the social medias? Me too. Highlight from afar thus far is LOL fave Sarah Lucas in the British Pavilion. Here she is talking about the show I SCREAM DADDIO with her friend and fellow artist Don Brown.
