some questions can never be answered, but ask them anyway
The above pictures are of Pocket Utopia's renovation and of the first show. The quote below is from yesterday's New York Times, written by the affable and Pulitzer Prize winning Holland Cotter.
Isn’t the point of art, though, to acknowledge that some questions can never be answered, but to ask them anyway? Isn’t part of the job of artists to refuse smoothness and to keep opening up space, formal, temporal, psychic, emotional, whatever you want to call it? In the end the generational model may be most useful for showing us the artists who don’t fit, who aren’t interested, who think old when they’re young and young when they’re old, to whom it may or may not occur as they walk past the hall of fame, “not me, not here, not yet.” -Holland Cotter, NYT - May 31, 2009
