The Biennale and ARTS 474

Documenta, photo: New York TimesMonday’s Professional Practices class attended VCU’s symposium on the 52nd Venice Biennale, Documenta 12 and the 4th Sculpture Projects Munster, which included a raging debate on the relevance of left-leaning political art and the weird power vacuums involved in curating massive, major exhibitions (pitch black exhibition spaces? really?). Afterwards, I brought up some of the larger criticisms of Robert Storr, and kept mumbling things about a New Yorker review on the subject, which is located here if anybody is curious or wants to get all prepped for next Wednesday’s discussion.

Now if only I can track down all the controversial Felix Gonzales-Torres selection theories that were floating around these wild internets ’bout a year ago at this time…¹

Until then,

Roblog

¹…there were an awful lot of dead artists presented. Coincidence? Deliberate choice? Evidence of a vast, elaborately concealed artist killing conspiracy? You decide, next time on Roblog!
