ART PAPERS 24.02 - Mar/Apr 2000
This issue investigates the little-known world of Crime Death photography in an article by Bret Wood. This issue also revisits the Bad Art issue, with a comment of Robert Rosenbaum, a New York University Professor of Art History and Curator at the Guggenheim Museum on what critics such as Deborah Solomon have recently termed museums' love for "bad art". Cay Sophie Rabinowitz interviews Maya Lin, who explores aesthetic territories, fusing art and ideals in her works of sculpture, architecture, and installation that always engages the viewer.
This issue also features a re-examination of the meaning of art by ignoring an art work's original intentions, in the piece "The Mistreatment of Art" by Gean Moreno and a discussion of clothing as High Art in Paris in the article "Passion for Fashion" by Dana Mouton Cibulski.
