the visual art scene in the state shas been spreading out increasingly since the 1990s..its (sadly) not just New York anymore. LA has a really thriving scene in terms of the amount of artists and galleries. New York is still of course pretty central to the visual arts industry, but its gotten too hard for actual artists to live there so many have moved to philadelphia, which has a nice selection of artist-run spaces. On the other side of the Atlantic, its London. The frieze art fair has put London on the map in a way it never was before.

I used to live near Chicago, and now that I don’t, I realize how very many great things were – and are – going on there.

berlin, brooklyn, montreal, london, austin, sf, and more and more los angeles is where people think art is happening –
but the internet is where it’s at for realsies.
