Dear editor:

Mr. Kimler gained the mark with many of his observations [June 26]. Among those I found compelling were the issues of ageism and the curatorial establishment's exclusionary investment in and perpetuation of the "movements" it engenders. Interestingly, Mr. Kimler's distress and success demonstrate one enormously liberating verite--it proves nothing if you are lauded or disparaged by the critics. Many of us who have been making art for a long time also despise the politics, preciousness, and clubbiness of the scene. Would that we were doing our carping at $20,000 a crack.
