Speaking of Cease and Desist.
Bill Keller should just send a messenger over to Cheim & Reid to pick up his cease and desist order from John Cheim. The image (above) that accompanied this article in the Times today clearly steals ideas directly from Jack Pierson's brain. I mean, what's the diff between this and the whole goofyass Barney's sitch? In my short time as an art world observer that still is one of the oddest moves I've ever seen by a gallery owner. I-N-E-X-P-L-I-C-A-B-L-E. Two and a half years later and I'm stilled awed by it.
