Talkin bout the next Jesus?

Bowery_New_Museum_Jesus.jpg
New Museum, new show, new sign art?

Jerry Saltz takes on the Younger Than Jesus show at the New Museum and particularly liked Ryan Trecartin, whom weve seen a couple of times at Igloo and TBA. He also explains why postmodern theorists look just as hypocritical as modernist idealogues.

Frankly, in many ways it looks like the same old thing weve seen for years and something tells me no institutionally sanctioned "ennial" will define the next really big thing, we need a cleaner break.

For the Times Holland Cotter seemed to have the same feeling all critics always have when seeing a survey of young art, they look for energy and trends.

Just a note, PORT will have a trio of big interviews this next week so keep your eyes peeled.
