Last week I was delighted that Arts and Letters Daily picked up on Hard Not to See, my feature on the new Whitney Museum and the direction of museum culture. The editors of AL Daily also asked me to be the featured reader, with my own pick for the week. My selection was “History by Exclusion, Illuminating the 'Dark Matter' of the Art World,” a manifesto that was published in 2006 but which has been gathering wider notice among artists this season. Written by the artist Loren Munk, the piece has become a rallying cry for art's DIY generation, with the conclusion "We are our own art history." You can read about it here.
