Wanted: Female Plonkers and Brown Mediocrities

Today, if you are a white male artist, you are not so interesting. It doesn’t mean to say you’re not a great artist – I think it’s more that this isn’t what is ­relevant for people now. You have to think in a timely way.”

– New director of Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Art, the white Suzanne Cotter

    Is the self-loathing Cotter going to stand down from her job for a person of “colour”?

    I thought not.

    Be afraid, be very afraid.

    A perspective on electrochemistry in battery research and design (Phys.org, 14 Feb)

    A team of 15 female materials scientists and engineers from Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has collectively provided their perspective on identifying and speeding up the slowest steps when studying and designing the battery’s electrochemical process—leading to greater battery system performance.

    Through an invitation to contribute to a focus issue on women in electrochemistry, their perspective was recently published in the Journal of The Electrochemical Society.

    Yep, the sole criteria for scientific success is becoming “do you have tits?”
    Maybe male scientists should start wearing dresses to get grants approved.

    The contents of the MCA are relevant to, probably, no more than 1% of the population. If you offered the “art” as a job lot at a garage sale you wouldn’t raise much. Under Ms Cotter’s reign one can confidently predict even fewer people will be willing to pay the entrance fee to see the new non-white and non-male art.

    On a visit to the Guggenheim in New York it got worse in content every time you went up a level. My teenage daughter agreed that a better use of the spiraling ramps of the building would be as skateboard park.

    The problem is up the Universities as well.

    One in particular that Im very familiar with has struck out all the Stale Pales in Fine Arts and of course the power positions are now occupied by alphabet people.

    So it aint just having a dick and being too pallid.

    We need to expand that to include, your thesis doesnt have enough of:
    -queer
    -post-modern,
    -internationalism,
    -feminism,
    – etc etc
