He is the Patron, and he is your King. He is the God of the artworld, even more than Jeff "vacuum-cleaner" Koons, or Richard Prince, with his visions of "Spiritual America": the nubile young female with the movie-star make-up in the U.S.A-grade bubble-bath. You overheard at Trisha's that he once paid a St Martins graduate to drink a bottle of Newport lighter fluid and vomit it up and set it on fire, like a real-life conceptual dragon, and wondered, idly if this was the same St Martins student who vomi...

That’s half as many as the Stedelijk Museum has on display and in storage.

Modern patronage takes many forms. Gone are the days of direct patronage: a wealthy patron giving funds, housing or access directly to an artist. Instead, artists must rely on networks of support. Grants, residencies, galleries, foundations, nonprofits: these organizations comprise the contemporary conduits of patronage. Arts executive and organizer Carolina Jayaram recently left one such organization for another and speaking with her, we saw what it takes to run the networks that support artists... [more]

I feel this is an important issue that is on everyone's mind these days. I know people are thinking things like, "Tracy is so great, why isn't she a saint?" and "How is it possible for anyone to be as awesome as Tracy and not be a saint?" Well, you're not alone in these thoughts, I think them as well and with your support I feel we can get the ball rolling on my sainthood. I believe that I would be an excellent patron saint of alcohol. Please join the facebook group and pass the word on to your fr... [more]
