One more bit of press for the Winkleman "Things Fall Apart' show- it comes from Sharon Butler and was posted on the Art21 blog, and it includes a thoughtful quote by P Chan...
“It is fashionable today (still?) to claim that there is
nothing new beyond our horizon of art, that everything worth doing has been
done, “ Chan said in his project statement for Godot. “But this seems to me an
altogether specious claim, for it ignores the vast undiscovered country of
things that ought to be undone. In these great times, the terror of action and
inaction shapes the burden of history. Perhaps the task of art today is to
remake this burden anew by suspending the seemingly inexorable order of things
(which gives the burden its weight) for the potential of a clearing to take
place, so that we can see and feel what is in fact worthless, and what is in
truth worth renewing.”
whoa. that's beautiful, no?
