The fact that some misinformed parents who are not Jews or Muslims also cut boys genitalia, shows only that children are considered of little value except as extensions of their parents. Genital cutting in childhood is immoral, regardless of the wishes of their parents, and anybody who cannot see the truth in that is less than human.
80% of men aren't cut in the world. There's nothing gross about normal genitals. What's fucking disgusting is strapping a baby down and cutting up his genitals, robbing him of his complete sexual experience.
I love being tickled...all over. My feet, belly, nipples...you name it. My friend, it took me a long time searching but trust me, if you are honest and sincere and keep your promises (my girlfriend had never been tickled prior to our first date so I promised I would stop the second she said stop) you will find someone. Ed
Btw...my girlfriend let me tickle her on the arms and legs and belly..and learned that she loves it. She now lets me restrain her and tickle her.
I don't know anything about art, but I liked your articles. Your voice made art more relatable.
Sad. I trusted you way more than the Jerry Saltz ilk.

One way to think of this is that Richard Serra's consistently awe-evoking, maximalist sculpture and your response to it is a kind of microcosm of the critique leveled against cold, agonistic, divorced-from-political-realities modernism and modernism's eventual usurpation by post-modern work that quite intentionally confronts the viewer with the detritus and traces of human life (and with the artifice of making work for cultural consumption).
In other words, your response, clear and convincing, is part of a larger discursive and historical shift away from awe, respect for "mastery", and corollary attitudes towards, I would suggest, an appreciation for story, for objects that provoke relations that carry on after the experience, for an indication of a human pulse and a desire for a recognition of our own presence as viewers.
You know things come and go, Italy had its Renaissance and Paris had its 19th Century on into Picasso and Duchamp, New York had its AbX, Pop, Minimal, Conceptual. It's almost as if one has to subscribe to a rise and fall theory of art. If not, then the conversation shifts to different expectations, like just being able to sustain a career in the field you love. Nothing wrong with that.
The expression "unverbal and unknown" nails it. That's most of the artists.
I agree with chocoa. Well said.
Is that a beet with a condom on it?
“The ideas aren’t great in NYC right now,” Grabner said-
She would know since her work appears so dated, unoriginal and bland.
It's not that the ideas aren't great; it's the lack of focus of the curators, critics and galleries on the unverbal and unknown.
'So I’ll leave British coverage right there.' If you use the tabloids for your British angle and the broadsheets for europe: Basta.
I suppose this is the problem with a lifetime of artistic praise; you just don't know when to retire. Serra is a great example. Had he bowed out of the art scene 10 years ago it would have been a graceful exit, as not only would he have cut out near prime, but would have stopped vacuuming up Guggenheim grants and gallery money. Instead its sculptural megalomania to the end, living under the delusion that he still has something to say, that not been said by a hundred steel plates on edge.
"... been making the same work for almost 30 years ..." You could get into the wall vs. fence thing, but that's chewed gum too. The problem is most of nyc art is this way. The same academic abstractions over and over. The tradition of NYC is now L'Ecole Des Beaux Artes of the 19th C.
Crosby and Ovechkin are both crap when you compare them to the best there is, Steven Stamkos.
Could you comment on Keith Mayerson? Folk naive? Insider outsider? Purposely unskilled?
If your wife cheated on you. Get rid of her. Once a cheater always a cheater.
I'm an art historian trying to make sense of today, how is that ego-tripping? Though I'm not quite sure what that term means. Why are you so hostile?
