Let’s Not and Say We Did is a new Babes At The Museum series that reviews art exhibits without actually attending them.

Since the sixties, San Francisco has been noted for its population of counter cultural miscreants and revolutionary ingenues. Its entrepreneurial economy is seeded by innumerable startups who increase the youth population, boost the regional wealth, and create a new class of aspiring art collectors and artists.

The endemic art scene has grown considerably from this, trading her hippies for hipsters. Properly paired, this collection of artists and entrepreneurs has already spawned some enticing innovations, not the least of which is net art. San Francisco’s unique nexus of tech and art is challenging its rival art capitals with the growing phenomena of net-centric and net-based art.  (more…)
