Anne Truitt Week

Since moving Modern Art Notes to Arts Journal, Tyler Green’s been demonstrating his critic-as-advocate chops, sometimes with a degree of acid that’d make even professional bee-atch Charlie Finch blush. He makes nice nice this week, though, by publishing brief excerpts daily from Anne Truitt’s Daybook. On top of simultaneously being a pioneer and stalwart contrarian of Minimalism, Truitt’s published journals are an unsurpassed window into the artistic process. Only Daybook is in print, but you can get the other volumes from ABEbooks.
