FTLW: for the little win
New York art-bloggers: no it's not really a big win. And it's not okay that you did it. But you did it. You protested against gallery procedures getting in the way of your lifestyle. Good.

A group of unidentified New York art bloggers were spotted at the 2010 Whitney Biennial press preview staging an absurd protest of a painting that was lent to the show by New York’s 303 Gallery. The work, Maureen Gallace, “August” (2009), was the unfortunate recipient of the bloggers’ wrath but the protesters told me that their action was not directed towards Gallace but her gallery, 303, which continues to maintain a strict anti-photography policy that is despised by many art bloggers.
