Art Madness II: First round, part two

Pin It

Continuing the voting in MAN’s Art Madness II: America Picks the Greatest Post-War Artwork Tournament! Each day through Thursday, I’ll feature eight first-round match-ups. Today we’ll continue with the rest of the top half of the draw: Today’s voting is full of what I think will be tight match-ups, but the one that stands out to me is Gerhard Richter’s Uncle Rudi [at right] v. Lewis Baltz’s The New Industrial Parks near Irvine, Calif.

I’ve published multi-part serieses about both works. MAN on Uncle Rudi: Introducing the series, Uncle Rudi and quiet confrontation, Uncle Rudi and the response to torture. MAN on The New Industrial Parks: The most under-sung masterpiece of the 1970s, articulating the artist’s wince, via a major collection installation at MOCA, how post-war art builds toward Baltz.
