Do I wish I could be in NY right now? Well, yeah...although according to Paddy, I'm not missing much.

You can also read AFC's take on the Whitney Biennial.

I finally saw it last weekend. My impressions of the show: The videos are pretty good; the photographs are large and blurry; laminated mdf and mirrors continue to be big...and Robert Bechtle's in it, for some reason. Frame those insights with the obligatory big-institutional-shows-don't-matter-anymore-because-of-art-fairs trope (about as useful at this point as writing about record high prices at an art auction), and you've got a review.
