Actually it’s a pretty good profile of the hyperactive one – and suitably long. :D

But since my tastes almost never coincide with HUO or Obi’s - he’s not really someone I take an interest in. :|

His career seems like an object lesson in schmoozing and art world networking, but I don’t see it having an intellectual substance. Significantly, he doesn’t build his own collection of art – only a vast library of publications stemming from his curatorial activities. Right there you see the problem - the 'depth' of his engagement. He’s an art user rather than an art lover. :evil:
