The Guardian reviews David Bowie Is
. Has any rockstar been so worthy of the visual spectacle he has produced?
The NYT's takes a somewhat broader look at abstract expressionism

. Look, his work was always weak and part of the problem is accepting of simple/brittle juxtapositions for shock effect. The fact that it involved craft did not make it any better and it was very one dimensional so not worth the closer look that some gave it (they collected it and curated it into shows). The lesson, dig deeper and expect more from art (consider suppleness) and you likely wont get caught supporting a Nazi fan boy.
