Pushing stuff out #4


Still on stuff published January 20th, Nicolas Mavrikakis writes 560 words on the 3x3 Flavin, Andre and Judd exhibit currently up at Concordia. In such a tiny space, he manages to fit in the following names (in order of appearance): Duchamp, Warhol, Jeff Koons, Lisa Yuskavage, Carl Andre and Donald Judd. Somehow he manages to completely avoid/miss/ignore or otherwise not make mention of Dan Flavin. Hmmm, a group show about three artists, and only two of them are mentioned? What gives? It is especially strange given that the accompanying picture is of a piece by Mr. Flavin. Weird. C+

The readers of the Voir website pile on with 1,908 words. As they actually engage themselves in something approaching a discussion about minimalist art, I'd give them, collectively a B-. But still nobody mentioned Flavin, weirder and weirder.
