transversal poetics confronts modern art

The Corkinhorn Gallery’s current exhibition, Painting Transversally, rides the frontiers of literary criticism and literary theory to raise profound questions for modern art.  Painting Traversally violently interrogates modern arts’ failure to become post-modern.  It complicates the relationship between art object and art consumer and implicates mass media and corporate America in the symbolic commercialization and dissignification / dissemination of art impulses.

I found this marvelous little gallery just south of the Phillips Collection.  I would describe it further, but I don’t have time right now.  Here’s my favorite piece, Masterwork in Bluish.

  1. Thank you for pointing out the exhibition, “Painting Transversally” the painting “Masterwork in Bluish”, and the Corkinhorn Gallery.
    I note that both a Google search and a Bing search could find no mention of the Corkinhorn Gallery or the exhibition Painting Transversally.
    You could do a great service to the art world by suggesting to this gallery that they need an internet presence.

  2. At first I thought you were having fun with the name Corcoran. A. Reader is right that this gallery is nowhere to be found online. What’s the address?
