Two Scoops, Please

Ooo, I scooped the NY Times again. Last week, I wrote about Thomas Hirschhorn's exhibit, "Superficial Engagement," at Gladstone Gallery. I noted/warned that the overwhelming number of photographs of butchered Arabs is shocking and upsetting. I went to this show after reading positive notices, but nothing hinting at the kicked-in-the-gut disturbing factor. Well, yesterday the Times published an article basically saying what I said. Here's a link to the story. The Times' coverage of galleries isn't exactly Art Forum or; still, it's fun to toot my horn just a bit. (Read Amp Power, Spread the Wattage!) (Image via Gladstone Gallery)
