What else is there to write about Renzo Piano? The New York Times tries to
make his choice as the architect for the Whitney seem daring
can (though he is solid). The real problem is that projects like the Menil and the Beyeler
are intimate in a way that these larger museum situations will
never be and though always good he peaked a long time ago. Somehow the Whitney seems ok with that kind of statement about the museum's place in the world...?
Banksy has finally done something interesting, critiquing the utter failure of imagination
that is the One
World Trade Center building
in an op ed that the NYT's refused to run (also interesting). True he's an attention whore seeking attention but writing,
"That building is a disaster. Well no, disasters are interesting. One World
Trade centre [sic British] is a non-event. Its vanilla. It looks like
something they would build in Canada." Deserves to be repeated and passed on.
The passing of two giants, Arthur
continues to gather voices to mark their passing. The Portland Art Museum has a pretty extensive collection of Caro's work from the Greenberg Collection.
