Don't Hang Up, Just Talk About It!

The Ed-werd Rew-Shay Memorial Art World Pronunciation Guide keeps on growing!

the latest additions include:
Richard Anuszkiewicz
Huma Bhabha
Thomas Houseago

And some great mispronunciations that needed addressing:
Chinati
Laocoon
Modigliani

Also, I just know the Aperture Foundation's video editors are totally taunting me by leaving the introduction off their 4-part interview between Okwui Enwezor and Zwelethu Mthethwa. [OAK-wee en-WAY-zore and Zweh-LAY-too m'TATE-wah, I know, but it's such a tantalizing two-fer.]

Have any suggestions, stumpers, or maybe some great mispronunciations you've heard? Send them in!

If you see something, say something!

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
