Know your Exit
I knew virtually nothing about Joseph Cornell until I read Joseph Cornell/Marcel resonance in Spring 2001. (I was/am very familiar with Duchamp, however, because of years of many visits to the Philadelphia Museum of Art.) I found that Cornell and I had/have virtually identical kitchen sinks, and that Cornell's 'studio' looks very much like my basement. It wouldn't surprise me at all if Flushing vis-à-vis New York City is very similar to Olney vis-à-vis Philadelphia.

Re: get a journalist ...
Journalists will surely write about your art after it sells for lots of money. That's the only guarantee I can think of.

I'm painting this now...

"Rubbing My Duchampiana Oeuvre"
...compile and organize all my Duchamp related artwork and data. Begin printing “cracks” on various magazine pages, and also generate some collages utilizing the Duchamp (in print/magazines) material. ...compose a CD entitled Rubbing My Duchampiana Oeuvre.

Re: Maint Stream Art, Folk Art, and Kitsch
Try thinking beyond the stereotype.
Also try thinking about what is not expected.
Doing/being what is not expected is my (personal) operating system.

Re: David Rimanelli
Rimanelli's ENTRIES seem a waste of printed space, not because of what is written, but because it's all already dated by the time it's published. Editorially speaking, this stuff belongs on where it would be more 'timely'.

Re: David Rimanelli
What you write and how you write are enjoyable, but there isn't all that much unique about it in these days of split-second electronic communication. For example, all i got is this lousy's ongoing reports (here at talkback) of her many visits to Cremaster/Guggenheim are just as valuable/valid as ENTRIES.
Following the Pincus-Witten historical precedent is (I suppose) admirable, but is it anything beyond that? Try thinking Pincus-Witten with a website cum following.

Re: David Rimanelli
Print media may be old school, but where Rimanelli is published is now-a-days really cleverly disguised advertising media.
really hard work:

hardly work:
I've posted at talkback 130 times since 4 April 2003.

Re: Anthony Vidler on Gordon Matta-Clark
What is still missing from the ongoing evaluation/analysis of Matta-Clark's work is the realization that he often manifests a/the metabolic imagination, i.e., an oeuvre comprising creative/destructive duality.

Re: Anthony Vidler on Gordon Matta-Clark
I spent an October 1994 weekend in Vidler's NYC/Chelsea studio apartment (a very restrictive space), while a large painting of mine, Taken Literally, spent over two years there--a close friend of mine sublet the place when Vidler first started teaching in LA. Vidler spent at least one week living with the painting himself, and I've often wondered if he got all the art and architectural references within the painting. There's even a sliced portion of a building, but I didn't know of Matta-Clark back then.
Vidler is/was a very good critical (architectural) historian. I've learned much from his writing, especially from the 1970s and 1980s. He starts missing the mark, however, within The Architectural Uncanny, e.g., within "Losing Face," and much of Warped Space manifests an ideological force-fit.

Re: Anthony Vidler on Gordon Matta-Clark
I really don't know enough about Matta-Clark to answer your question. Vidler provides a very good 'genealogy' of Matta-Clark's architectural background, and perhaps what Matta-Clark found and exposed is a large part of architecture's and architecture education's vulnerable, pink and soft underbelly. [Trust me, that underbelly is still there, and even pinker and fatter these days.]
Beyond that, I'm honestly jealous of Matta-Clark being Duchamp's godson! Some people have all the luck. Then again, I did tear out a quondam termite infested baseboard in my mother's basement on Tuesday.
