A real reason to go to NYC


For a variety of reasons, some political, some not, The Basquiat show at the Brooklyn Museum is a serious reason to go down to NYC.

In today's New York Times, Roberta Smith hedges her bets, leading off with a comparison to the 1992 Whitney retrospective, but writing "The exhibition is not necessarily better; it may even be slightly weaker in selection and display."

The only other review (as of now) is from the New York Sun, written by Lance Esplund, Mr. Esplund does a nice overview of Basquiat's career (as does Ms. Smith) but avoids writing anything about the exhibit, keeping his criticism to the paintings.

As more reviews come on line, I'll be sure to track 'em.
