Re: "Big Steel" at MoMA NYC
These "Momentary shows are great, and they make an important point. They quite clearly show the extent to which context and critical approval matter. In spite of ourselves, we immediately associate your work with the art that we know is in the Louvre and Moma and reflexively assume that you are a part of the collections, selected after much discussion and criticism and at vast expense. We see and admire, and the next step is to say, well, why not? Why shouldn't these small constructs be official parts of the collections? They seem to survive the context quite well.
It suddenly occurs to me that someone could have some fun with Photoshop and pics of their work and some of the museum interiors--probably been done many times.
