Is It Work?.


This is the best article on poetry that I’ve ever read. Thank you, Patricia Lockwood. Frost


Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg “were linked together, usually by people who had little or no idea of what they really meant to each other. Early critics tagged them both with the same facile labels—neo-Dada, assemblage, junk art—and viewed and reviewed them as a pair. They showed together, were discussed together, even discovered together by their dealer.
Although the artists remain circumspect on this point, there is reliable evidence that for over six years Johns and Rauschenberg were lovers…  a relationship which was to have a profound effect on the work of each of them at a critical moment in their development.”  Queer Arts

"The Happenings artists personified the collapse of the hegemony of painting and sculpture as they introduced elements from daily life and popular culture into environments and performances. It is indisputable that between 1958 and 1963 these events transformed art, the perception of art, and its reception by the public, which itself had been transformed by these actions." - Milly Glimcher

Happenings: New York, 1958–1963 will be on view at 534 West 25th Street through March 17, 2012.
