4th of July and didn’t make any plans–Web links worth noting

New Museum Show, The American Affect:
Lawrence Rinder-curated show, The American Affect, at the Whitney in NYC.
Rinder: This show carries on the Whitney?s longtime commitment to illuminating the times in which we live. America has a profound influence on the daily lives of the world?s citizens? and the image of the United States has come to bear almost mythological weight. The American Effect is about the ways in which America?s real and imagined effects intertwine to become a compelling source of themes, images, and ideas for artists around the world.
New SFMOMA show: Illegal Art, Freedom of Expression in the Corporate Age
New “Fish-out’of Water’ Narrative, The Island Chronicles:
Mark Fraufelder and family arrive in Rarotonga, an island in the South Pacific.
