Real Performance Art
As of 5 PM, Mass MoCA has not made its promised announcement regarding the fate of materials assembled for the artist formerly known as Buchel in the giant Gallery 5. It seems logical to assume that this delay is because of the appeal filed by the artist formerly known as Buchel's lawyers.
If the appeals court decides not to immediately intervene and issue an injunction, here is my humble suggestion to Joe Thompson:
Open the gallery for one week *free of charge*. Let the public see what the hullaballoo was about.
Auction it all off like cattle. Every last bit. Even I will buy something. (I wonder if I can plant my culinary herbs in a bomb casing?)
Donate all the proceeds beyond Mass MoCA's costs to endow an art education program in the local schools.
