Arts In/Visible, Art BS, Art Slog

This week’s art podcast is about—what else?—sculpture, with Eric Fredericksen. You even get a pretty picture of the guy.
And Tyler Green is calling BS on Johanna Burton’s proposal (mentioned yesterday on Slog) that the difference between installation and sculpture is that one needs you, while the other doesn’t. He says all art is equally needy—or at least from Henry Moore to Thomas Hirshhorn. But doesn’t some art want you more than other art? Thomas Hirshhorn desperately wants you, it seems to me. Jasper Johns could care less about you. This doesn’t exist?
Hey, also, I want to announce: for those who have been looking for art and architecture posts on Slog and have had a hard time finding Charles and I on a regular basis, our Slog posts are now being routed directly to the Visual Art page of The Stranger online. Make this your new bookmark.
