- Roberta Smith’s is the NYT’s art year-in-review to read. (Bonus: It includes the word “gimcrack.”) Question: Why rip only the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts for deaccessioning significant art to play contemporary-art-market roulette when New York’s Dia Art Foundation sold arguably more significant art to do the same?
- After forty-some years, LACMA brings back its art-and-technology program. Here’s hoping it’s not a sausage-fest this time.
- The NYT finally, in the person of Karen Rosenberg, reviews Dorothea Rockburne at MoMA.
- I went on a minor Twitter rant about the silliness of the Clothing Company Award at a round New York museum.
- Congratulations to Kathy and Britney who were engaged in Joe, the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts’ landmark Richard Serra.
- On this week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast: For the second straight week we spotlight a star of the ongoing Carnegie International. Last week it was Phyllida Barlow, this time it’s Vincent Fecteau. Then artist Yelena Zhelezov of artists-group KCHUNG Radio tells us about KCHUNG’s radio mystery play, “on” now at the Hammer Museum. How to listen: Download the show to your PC/mobile device.
