Join us every Saturday as we look back on the mid-size galleries and small museums that have sunk into obscurity, in retrospect.
— In retrospect, if David Zwirner is so concerned about the survival of mid-size galleries, he should open an outpost on the Lower East Side (or, better yet, Bushwick) showcasing emerging artists.
— In retrospect, we sincerely hope some institution will come aboard and keep the South Street Seaport Museum afloat (ideally before we run out of terrible nautical puns).
— In retrospect, Frieze London’s “Frieze Projects” lineup for 2013 doesn’t include a speakeasy bar, so why should we care?
— In retrospect, it’s strange that controversy only erupted after Jonathan Meese’s second performance featuring a Nazi salute.
— In retrospect, the NSA should commission Shepard Fairey to design the next PRISM slideshow that gets leaked, so well suited is his aesthetic to the subject of domestic surveillance.
— In retrospect, we are deeply saddened by the loss of Sarah Charlesworth this week, though we eagerly anticipate her first posthumous retrospective — but who’ll put it on?
— Benjamin Sutton
