  1. Yes, I disagree. With both your definitions/comparisons and with your conclusion.

  2. RE: Deitch and MOCA – I think this is kind of a non-issue. One one hand I know Deitch is a favorite whipping boy but this kind of thing is done by museums all the time. if it’s not space rental it’s using auditoriums for presentations, or buying ad space inside of exhibitions via a sponsorship (Target and Jasper Johns at the NGA comes to mind).

    At least this one has a but of public interest to it and it does seem to show a collection before it will be scattered. I realize that it’s not a masterful collection nor was it developed with a particularly critical eye – but I will admit Elizabeth Taylor has captured the imagination of the masses for decades. So lets just say it’s going to be a crowd pleaser and be done with it.

    I think Deitch has a slightly larger microscope over him with a lot of these kind of things – basically because of his position as a former dealer (and a very successful one at that). While I”m sure you disagree with my position on this, I don’t think this is a terribly large transgression – if one at all.

  3. So, I think it’s safe to say we disagree on this. (I think we can agree on that)
