“Crystal Bridges, the Art Museum Walmart Money Built, Opens”, The New York Times

Read Roberta Smith’s confused review of this new museum. She doesn’t even address the main issues. For instance, what is the meaning of creating a brand new anthological style museum in 2012 that is doomed to fail? And how much money was spent? Have they done a good, bad or indifferent job? Then there’s the weird final paragraph where she starts lecturing about how art is not simply the plaything of the rich…is she that uneasy about her own role? did we need a lecture? Is something rotten in Denmark???
