Art Post Haste 15

art news

Art forgery, political art, and more art world news from around the globe, including a nice show of German art from the Weimar years at the Tate in London!

Here’s some of the topics that are most dear to my heart. German Expressionism plays a significant role in my own work, and I’ve always been enthralled by art forgery.

  • Helsinki just built an art museum underground!
  • Another look at preaching to the choir in the art world.
  • When you find yourself in a museum, don’t EVER let me hear you say,”My kid can paint that” or “I could do that”. You just sound like a close minded ignoramus. Rothko may not be your cup of tea, but don’t be a moron about it. For once in your life, try a little bit.
  • If this was the 1990’s, I’m sure Kansas City’s Nelson-Atkins Museum would find a way to make a giant exhibition about this drawing. This city didn’t start to grow up until all the Henry Moores were moved out of the back lawn.
