On a more personal note, an article I penned for The New York Press scrutinized what I consider an emerging trend in fine art.
The term "Supercraft" is now the subject of a panel being conducted at the School of Visual Arts. This is the blurb Don Porcella, organizer extraordinaire, came up with: 'Supercraft: The New Insider Folk Art' is an article written by Noah Sudarsky for the NY Press, January 28, 2009. In the article, Noah Sudarsky coins the term Supercraft. What does this mean? What is the definition of Supercraft? Who are some of the practitioners of of this art form? The current worldview calls for a kind of frugality, resourcefulness and outsider inventiveness, says Sudarsky. My name for this trend is Supercraft, Noah Sudarsky has written for The Village Voice, NY Press, Whitehot Magazine and many other publications. The artists on the panel are referenced by Noah Sudarsky as practitioners of Supercraft. Come see SuperCraft: The New Insider Folk Art on Dec 11th at 6:30pm at SVA.
The trend later manifested itself in no uncertain terms at the Armory Show, as reported in New York mag:
