after all those galleries, after all those exhibitions i saw last year, the last 6 weeks in melbourne has been a drought! turns out that when your life is precarious, you don't have the luxury of seeing art with a capital A.
in the times i would normally be going to art openings, or checking out exhibitions, i've been asking friends to stay on their couch, travelling to various parts of the city or travelling to the country to stay at my folks', or working my various casual jobs and projects, or waiting for peeps to finish their work so i can stay with them.
that's not intended to be an outright whinge (see previous post), but it did remind me that when i make art in a gallery, i'm only going to be talking to people who have a pretty nice, even steady life.
an important lesson too methinks.
