Getting closer by indirection

A fine play on acquiring permission to be an artist has been written and staged in London and New York. It has been staring us in the face since before this space opened, and in many respects, it is why we are here. As one looks to the artists of the blog, the meaning of that acquisition has grown clearer. It isn't a transaction at all. It's an acceptance.
