Performance artist Brainard Carey has emerged with an eloquent book that provides options to artists who typically define professional success in the context of gallery representation. Having once been a director of his own gallery before moving to New York City to perform in the 2002 Whitney Biennial, Carey succinctly outlines a variety of ways to achieve visibility within a city that is full of so many heavy-weight artists, gallerists and critics. This text deconstructs the historical model of representation with humor and personal vignettes.
