I've been home for 3 days with a sinus infection and a fever, maybe it's flu. Two things, I suggest to anyone else interested in art today are linked below, and I'll check in again tomorrow!
One: Hyperallergic's new issue, http://hyperallergic.com/category/news/
Two: When the Art Stared Back and Other Trends by Roberta Smith http://www.nytimes.com/2010/12/19/arts/design/19smith.html
and for extra credit read Jerry Saltz’s Open Letter to the Republicans of the 111th Congress http://nymag.com/daily/entertainment/2010/12/jerry_saltzs_open_letter_to_th.html
