Spam (International edition)

reckless guesswork, insinuations and possible inventions that have arrived at all things come to those who wait. welcome news that billy apple has been ear-marked for a significant survey exhibition at the witte de with center for contemporary art in rotterdam. apple was invited by director nicolaus schafhausen who is also commissioner for the german pavilion at venice. schafhausen has visited new zealand a number of times and continues to be an influential advocate of nz artists. as one of the curators of the first brussels biennial (florian waldvogel is the other one) he has invited simon denny and et al to participate. et al’s. invitation apparently comes after their basel showing. given the lack of follow-up opportunities from our showings at venice cnz might look harder at art fairs as a way to attract the attention of international curators. any missed details, indignant denials or additions gratefully received, and the most surprising, rewarded with an international edition overthenet cap.
