Take no prisoners: the ‘Skin Fruit’ fracas.

Since New Museum curator Richard Flood doesn’t understand what blogs are, I’ve helpfully saved my prairie dog opinions for WNYC, where I’ve got a two-parter on the hot mess known as Skin Fruit. Part one: my take on the show. Part two: Skin Fruit by the numbers, or how a museum that is supposed to be all about ‘new’ is doing a show that is everything but.

Enjoy!!

    I’m glad there was a controversy about this show because it has caused a lot of important issues to be discussed. That said, I wonder how much attention it would have gotten it there had been no controversy? About the same, a little less, or a lot less?
