roundup of roundups
On MAN, Tyler spends an uncharacteristic amount of time picking apart recent Post arts coverage as only Tyler can. He also runs a letter from Julian Bond and John Anderson re: Philip Kennicott's pro-Pew take on Art of the Steal, the documentary explaining why the Barnes collection will be moving from Merion, PA to Philadelphia...and why Albert Barnes might be rising from his grave any minute now to consume Derek Gillman's brains. (Read the NYT's take on the film here.)
One unrelated link: Kriston Capps has a review of Mia Feuer's recent show at Transformer in Artforum. Read it here.
Kriston, dude, you know I'm a fan...but this piece is a little less readable than I'm used to from you:
Geez. It's almost as if you were writing this for the pages of Artfo...ah, never mind.
Best understood as a casual sketch, and as a passive piece that considers compositional ideas that have typically been cast as gallant and brash, Feuer’s installation, while striving for lightness, skirts insubstantiality.
