Greetings AFC Readers,

 

After our fugitive weekend spent seeing as much art as possible in Baltimore, Whitney and I return with a ton of reports on the city's artists, art fair, and exhibitions. It was incredible. We still have more to come this week—including a "We Went to" review with Baltimore's own critic/ubiquitous drag performer Michael Farley. Be sure to check out his "Death to Normcore" performance this Saturday here in Brooklyn.

 

And now, here are some of our highlights from around the blog this week:

 

And of course, we continue to bring you GIFs every single day. Woot!

Artscape Diary: Three Days of Art Tourism in Baltimore

Finding the weird amongst the Jeep tents in Baltimore's Artscape festival.

Baltimore's Alternative Art Fair: Mostly Alt

Baltimore's only contemporary art fair takes place in a parking garage. For a moment, I thought I'd been transported back to art school in Chicago, when art actually seemed exciting.

We Went to Baltimore: The Sondheim Prize Finalist Exhibition

Modernism and kinetic sculpture win more prizes.

Buy a Jeff Koons "Balloon Dog" Knockoff for $500

Found on Alibaba, China's biggest e-commerce site: a balloon dog knockoff, fabricated however you like.

Starting Tonight, A Workshop for Palestine in New York

Because something is probably better than nothing.

David Zwirner's Annual Pop-Up Bookstore Opens This Week

We here at Art F City imagine our readers to get instant and profound satisfaction from glossy books filled with art, perhaps neatly stacked into organized piles.

Artists: Take This Survey, Let the World Know If You Hate Art Fairs

The venerable Ed Winkleman is a man of many hats: art dealer, author, and Moving Image fair organizer. And now, he needs your help.

Art Critics on the Move: ARTnews Gains More Gallerist Staff

Yes, it's true.

Thanks, Wikipedia: Codpieces, Syndromes, and Space

All too frequently, we here at Art F City get pulled into Wikipedia K-holes. A page on physics and the colors of noise can link to a page on how the television works, which in turn links to a page on American Idol. In short, we find some weird shit.

The American Royalties Too Act: Are Artist Resale Royalties a Reality?

Artist royalties are, and have always been, notoriously under-legislated. This past Tuesday, however, we saw an important tipping point for legal change.

Finding Humanity in the Humidity: An Art Trip to Texas

There's a type of summertime heat in the Gulf states that will turn even the hardiest of souls into a single ball of sweat. Not even air conditioning cannot save you. Summer's really not the best season for art, and the galleries tend to know that; they slow down just like the rest of their sticky city-dwellers. And yet, a scant few do get out, and try to see art though most of the galleries have gone on vacation.
 

This Week's Must-See Art Events: Death to Normcore

This week comes at us with high-energy midsummer events, more group shows, and air-conditioned movie theaters.

The American View: It would be so great to be working in a European arts institution. After all, those organizations get such a large portion of their budget from the government.
