Today the New York Stock Exchange reported its worst quarter since the "downturn." At the end of trading, one of its officers was heard to complain, in a less-than-bullish voice, that fear was undermining market confidence, and we should get over it.
Get over it? After all that money spent on heightening the fear of another terrorist attack?
Seems fear is in need of partition.
No more blanket fear!
Still in New York, a reminder that the New York Art Book Fair is at P.S 1 in Long Island City this weekend. Presentation House Gallery, whose board I serve on, is there, as is Publication Studio, who are launching Free Concert, a pendant to my exhibition The Rolling Stones Trilogy: an Inadvertent Opera in Three Acts, at Once. Free Concert is based on everything said from the stage during the Stones 1969 appearance at Altamont, and is not to be confused with the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.
