Quote of the Week - Charlotte Cotton

Copyright Eleanor Antin

In honor of Charlotte's impending departure from LACMA for greener (well, for her anyway) British pastures and of her accomplishments while here in Los Angeles:

"The hyperbolic, carefully controlled, museum- and gallery-specific versions of photography, in which every prop and gesture can be attributed to the artist's direction, have been the most pronounced arrivals in the art world. If you are, like me, schooled in the magic of photoraphy's willful embrace of luck, mistakes, and happenstance, you view the art world's partial endorsement of this bastard form with some suspicion."
