I only have time today to throw out a few passing thoughts:
In mandalas, they are not only symbols and representations of deities, but the things themselves. Does that mean that the mandala artist is a channel?
Martha Schwendener has another flat article in the Voice today in which she thinks she’s saying something new. What annoys me this time is the easy condemnation of white, MFA-carrying artists vs. the heroic black revolutionary (Emory Douglas at the New Museum). Both are stereotypes, Martha. Can’t go deeper than that?
