New York, February 23, 2014
New Yorkers organized a protest march in the streets of SoHo. The demonstrators came from every borough to express their astonishment, indeed for the most engaged their disapproval, of the title and content of the show Art by Delegation organized in Brussels.
John Smith, a member of the American branch of the Committee for Creative Vigilance: I don't understand why the show is called Art by Delegation. Since it is supertemporal art with the participation of the viewers, based on an idea of Isidore Isou, the creator of Letterism, the show could have simply been called Concerning the Supertemporal.
Ann Pandergast is among the most determined demonstrators: We call on all art lovers to write their creative slogans on the supertemporal banner.
James Trawisky participated in the demonstration, but expresses reservations about the radicalness of some of the entries: After all, this show can be considered an advance that takes into account the realities of public awareness and the state of the market. If it is a further step toward the propagation and recognition of this avant-garde movement, then why not?
