Holy Fuck! This is another great example of the dangers of the "success" of an art critic. How dare you point out that the programming of the CAM is insidiously incestuous with the rest of the art world. God forbid they include local or regional artists of original magnitude, ie those that aren't influenced by Disney or Murakami, or one of a multitude of artists who mimick each other in the race to kiss enough status quo ass to show in such circles. Why not just google an artist or artwork before declaring originality or not, contrived, influenced or flat out copied. Oops! How dare incite discourse that the Houston art scene is not yet mature beyond the city's conservative tide of its politics and oil industry economy and it's trust fund hobby dealers and collectors. Bored rich housewives, art clubs, contrived local talent and the successful critics that sleep with them all. Two art fairs and imported art do not make a world class visual art city of Houston. Contrived attire, plastic smiles, and reviews with photos of the scene do!
