Dear Art World,
Please arrange the following on a 2x2 grid for me? Or maybe a spectrum? Because I cannot:
Eve Sussman's 89 Seconds at Alcazar (2004), which I quite like, but:
The Laguna Beach Festival of the Arts' Pageant of the Masters tableaux vivants (1933-present):
Seward Johnson's bronze re-creations of well-known paintings (1994- too long), such as those shown at the Corcoran in 2003:
And his blown-up re-creation of Grant Woods' American Gothic (2009):
And the gigantic fiberglass WTF of Philip Haas's Arcimboldo-ish sculpture that was being installed at the National Gallery the other day?
Having recently made some copies of someone else's art myself, I really want to know. Because if this is where it leads, I'll just go back to finance right now.
