Excellent review of Yoko Ono's solo show at MoMA in the NYT's
The news of the week is that an entire MFA class at USC has dropped out in protest
. That schools do this is nothing new, Mark Rothko even had something similar happen to himself and two other Jewish students from Portland at Yale
. What is different is the sheer # of art students and the internet as a platform for sharing these protests. As the pact between higher education and students grows ever tenser with skyrocketing student debt we haven't heard the last of this.

We art critics are very protective of our voice and Christopher Knight is absolutely right to demand something different be done with his misattributed words
. Museums simply have a responsibilty to the art and the history of discourse around it, especially if the critic in question has made a formal request that it be changed. It also reaffirms why long term staff critics are necessary... a revolving door of freelances doesn't have the same kind of backbone to stand up for their words.
