Weekend roundup

  • Historical art museums aren’t known for their interest in commitment to contemporary art, but even by the low standards of the field, the MFA Boston’s long-time disinterest runs deep. Writer/artist Greg Cook led a band of merry artists into the MFAB to call attention to that issue, reports Geoff Edgers in the Boston Globe. Cook’s own post on the event is here.
  • The director of the Smithsonian Archives of American Art is headed to run the troubled RISD Museum, reports — well why not — Greg Cook.
  • In LA Weekly, Andrew Berardini on two contemporary takes on landscape.
  • Stan VanDerBeek is at the Contemporary in Houston. Douglas Britt takes a look.
