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.
