Tyler Green Modern Art Notes

Weekend roundup

  • In the NYT, Kate Taylor looks at the Smithsonian’s attempts to create the National Museum of African American History and Culture. In light of the current Clough-created mess at the Smithsonian, Taylor’s piece is an extra-must-read.
  • This is bizarre: The Catholic League says it didn’t even know “Hide/Seek” was overwhelmingly focused on gay and lesbian artists and subjects. Christopher Knight debunks this bit of hogwash.
  • I can’t link to Scott Cantrell’s review of MAMFW’s awesome-looking Ed Ruscha show. The Dallas Morning News has gone behind a pay wall.
  • Cute Jessica Gelt LAT story on an unexpected show of Billy Al Bengston watercolors in Santa Monica. The story even includes a knowing nod at a longtime art world rumor: That Bengston designed the carpet inside buddy Frank Gehry’s Disney Hall.
  • Seattle Art Museum chief Derrick Cartwright talks to Jen Graves about life at SAM post-Picasso.
