Way back in September 2002, Lisa Kelly wrote a long, detailed, wide ranging, muckraking essay about artist run galleries, art writing, and careerism…
The essay, entitled “Servile Youth” was originally published in the Elastic printed project, Sydney 2002/2003 in the chapter ‘Points of View’ coordinated by Anne Kay.
I stumbled across a pdf copy recently, and it struck me that it was just as relevant as ever. Lisa tells it like it is.
