Should all Brutalist architecture be preserved? I have doubts... remembering the sad buildings in UK where rain tracks looked like tears... #brutalist #architecture #preservation #history #design http://www.archilovers.com/stories/26255?utm_source=lov&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=lov_news

Working on an article about the Michelangelo exhibit at the Met. Here's the first sentence of Vasari's Life of Michelangelo, written while the artist was still alive: While industrious and distinguished spirits, illuminated by the
widely renowned Giotto and his followers, were striving to
give the world proof of the talent which the benevolence of
the stars and the proportionate mixture of their humours had
bestowed upon their genius, all toiling anxiously, though in
vain, in their eagerness to imitate the grandeur of Nature with
the skills of art, in order to come as close as they could to that
ultimate knowledge many people call intelligence, the most
benevolent Ruler of Heaven mercifully turned His eyes
towards earth, and, witnessing the hopeless quantity of such
labours, the most fervid but fruitless studies, and the presumptuous
opinion of men who were further from the truth than
shadows from the light, He decided, in order to rid us of so
many errors, to send to earth a spirit who, working alone, was
able to demonstrate in every art and every profession the
meaning of perfection in the art of design, how to give relief
to the details in paintings by means of proper drawing,
tracing, shading, and casting light, how to work with good
judgement in sculpture, and how to make buildings comfortable
and secure, healthy, cheerful, well proportioned, and
richly adorned with various decorations in architecture.

Kara Walker's work has been met with raving reviews or stern criticism. Do I add to the debate? I tried to approach her art through various biases including... French Theory! #art #Africanamerican #KaraWalker #gallery http://www.riotmaterial.com/redemption-of-art-through-disfigurement-slaughter/

What have Goya, Eisenstein and Richard #Longo in common? Well, Longo's answer is "a lot": drama, politics, black and white. Talent? Spectacular show at the Brooklyn Museum or Art. #NYC #brooklyn #art #contemporary http://www.riotmaterial.com/proof-goya-eisenstein-longo/
