Andrew Lamprecht's Lunchtime lecture at Michaelis on Wednesday revealed a very interesting snippet, to say the least. The lecture was on art publishing, and by proxy art criticism in South Africa. What transpired, besides for a a first-year snitch publicly denouncing the drunken criticism that is Early Friday bizarrely, was Sean 'O Toole admitting that Art South Africa did give preference to advertising galleries. Not that we didn't suspect it. Not that it is a terrible practice either, after all it is, I presume, a commercial venture. But still, from the horse's mouth.
