America's Big Nothing at the Venice Biennale

Carol Vogel reports (yes, reports) in today's New York Times about the current situation with selecting an American representative for next summer's Venice Biennale.

It turns out that the NEA doesn't want to be involved in the decision making process anymore, funding sources have dried up, the Guggenheim isn't interested in opening another branch (what's that?), and so on and so forth. So, bottom line, unless the situation changes quickly there may not be an American representative in the show.

The one artist mentioned specifically as a candidate is Ed Ruscha. Would it be better to have Ed Ruscha as the U.S. representative or to submit nothing?

Don't make me answer that question.
