Today the Stranger Suggests

posted by on April 3 at 12:28 PM


‘Why History Matters’
(Art) At the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, curator Michael Darling organized several shows that made his name, most of all Superflat, the anime explosion. Last year, he came to head the modern and contemporary department at Seattle Art Museum, and this is his first public lecture. “Why History Matters: Context and Reference in Contemporary Sculpture” is a meaty and relevant subject: Darling will explore how the modernist traditions of the sculpture in the park live on, and mutate, in sculpture made today.

I remember that show in LA. It was crazy, mainly I think because it was around the 2000 Chinese New Year; the place was packed, mostly with Asians. The art, hmmm, there was a big dilapitated fighter plane sculpture, an almost lifesize bunch of microserf looking people in formation, some stuff by that artist who does the kids with small eyes, nose and lips on the big bulbous heads, and lots of other neat-o stuff. Now - couldn't you find a better pic of the curator? He looks a bit Superevil?!
