The most accurate and comprehensive description of The Diet Newsletter is the newsletter itself, www.gallerydiet.com A few hopes and thoughts on the Diet newsletter, The Diet newsletter is an online publication appearing once monthly which creates a local source for dialogue relevant to the national and international arts community. While focused in Miami, the Diet newsletter has woven perspectives from outside the city into the local dialogue, broadening the scope of discussion surrounding visual art work in South Florida. The newsletter will be divided into four parts; columns, reviews, postings, and conversations. Columns will be written from an international perspective, they should serve as portals for the newsletter’s audience to the international occurrences of the contemporary art world, they should give insight and connect the readers with events, places, and shows that they would not have discovered without the columnist. Reviews should occur at varying levels; locally, internationally, and nationally. They should include reviews of shows, lectures, panels, performances and the like. The only constraint for the reviews is that they must be reviews, by this I mean criticism, praise, an argument for or against something that the writer was inspired by, be that a negative or positive inspiration. The writer’s opinion must be felt in this category. It is imperative for the reader to feel the author’s stance. Postings is a place for Diet contributors (editors, and writers) to post essays, words, books, films, music, any outside source material that they should feel relates to that particular issue of the newsletter. This is a place where the reader can expand his or her point of reference, understand where the writers are coming from and have a chance to learn directly from the source. Conversations will be a place where artists, dealers, curators, thinkers, or any active participant in the art world can speak to one another on a predetermined date, record the dialogue and publish it, so that the reader may sit, as in John Favreou’s Dinner for Five at an imaginary round table of sorts with people they may admire, despise, or not even know and derive information from both sides of the conversation.
