So with the contemporary art auctions high flying in the face of
reason a slowing world wide economy.... We guess it's a totally stupid perfect time to launch yet another RED Dot art fair.
As if the MIAMI and New York RED Dots were not
bad enough.. now there will be a RED Dot in London during the Frieze Art Fair in mid October.

Yes..my little MAO-ettes, even with many of the RED Dot NY'08 art dealers not selling a single thing, the economy crashing, and several HOT NY dealers shutting down ....

shit kid you not!! Like, did they not see the results of our MAO Art MIAMI Fair pole?
Anyway... We wish them lots of luck! Here's the
insane press release..
Red Dot Fair is pleased to announce Red Dot London, October 16 - 19, 2008. London's vibrant art scene hosts the world each October as collectors, dealers, and artists converge on the city for the annual art fairs.
