Jonathan Griffin

Jonathan Griffin did a talk at college this afternoon.
Lots of people went because they thought it he would help us with advising us on how to make money and be creative wants academia is over.
He just talked about his work. and how we wangled a job as editor at frieze. And that talking about art is alot easier than making art. So he did that for 4 years and here he is. His work was hobbyist sculpture. He made things for himself (surfboards and kites) documented him playing with them and exhibited that. Im currently fixing up an old broken accordion but i dont think its art yet really. Still i liked his view on not taking art so seriously, that art should just be a way to improve life. for yourself and others.
