Here’s my Artlink review of the summer show at GOMA (that’s closing May 11th).
I was glad to have the opportunity to comment in print on this show because the work is mainly about spectacle. And while it treats an important subject – the environmental crisis – my experience of the art itself left me pretty much unmoved.
That so many people have been wowed by this exhibition: that’s interesting.
Have a read and I’d welcome comments from any and all of you.
