Tyler Green Modern Art Notes

Weekend roundup

  • Last week I asked my Twitter followers how the NYT would handle the “Work of Art” show at the Brooklyn Museum given that the paper’s top America-based art critic is married to one of the show’s celebrity-judges. Answer: The paper assigned Karen Rosenberg to the show, and after delivering a token semi-kiss to Jerry Saltz, she clobbered it.
  • MAN’s been posting on this for some time and now the NYT is covering the story: Malcolm Gay on integrating the Gateway Arch with downtown St. Louis.
  • In the LAT, Liesl Bradner notes that one of America’s most important artists, Catherine Opie, has been looking at football. (MAN on a show at the Wexner that included same.)
  • A judge tells Fisk University that it may not sell Georgia O’Keeffe’s bequest to Crystal Bridges doyenne Alice Walton.
  • I am not the only one driven batty by certain museums’ lousy websites. The Cleveland Plain Dealer’s Steven Litt is too.

  1. The Cleveland Museum of Art website is also a direct ripoff of a Tumblr theme known as “Museum” (http://museumtheme.tumblr.com/). How can any museum operating today ignore good design and refuse to attempt web accessibility standards?
