The 2009 round of Snobicons made their appearances last week and yet again crowndozen.com was there.

With Obama now in the White House, The Great Recession on us and everyone twitbooking about EVERYthing it would be easy for me to connect the dots and throw in some cheeky analysis that trashes the upper echelons of the artistocracy. But any Marxist schaudenfreude I may feel watching the mighty tremble over sales vanished and portfolios diminished provides only temporary comfort. After all, I like many of my contemporaries have had nothing all along and prospects for getting by are steadily growing dimmer.

Instead we're going to take a little look back as a way of striking a contrast to the 140 character nature of a "now" that is shorter and shortr and shrtr than it ever has been. (Aaron is OMG! LMAO at this tinyurl!) I'd like to draw your attention to the review I did of this same cycle 2 years ago when the economic environment was better and now was just a bit longer than it is in 2009. When you come back from the jump check out what I saw at the following 2009 fairs:

The Armory Show
Scope New York
Pulse Contemporary Art Fair
Volta New York
Bridge New York Art Fair
