Markus Lüpertz is about to erect another sculpture in a public space, and in the past his work has been, to put it kindly, misunderstood.

I won't be in town, but look forward to definitely seeing the show!
This week in the magazine, Peter Schjeldahl reviews the Paul Thek retrospective at the Whitney Museum of Art. Here Schjeldahl looks at Thek’s work, from his wax sculptures and self portraits to his more recent abstract paintings.
Via Kottke, paintings by Andy Denzler that look like highly compressed jpegs. Sort of Richter like?
Saw six very early Trisha Brown (WikiP entry) dance pieces performed yesterday at the Whitney. Intimate and clever, the dances happened literally in and among the crowd with the exception of one piece ("Walking on the Wall" 1971) where the dancers were suspended overhead dancing on the walls. The first piece ("Accumulation" 1971) was, strangely for me, a sort of deconstructed hippie dance to the entire LP version of the the Grateful Dead's Uncle John's Band. Afterwards everyone went outside for the final piece where a traffic stopping throng of gawking New Yorkers watched dancer Elizabeth Streb walk down the exterior of the building ("Man Walking Down the Side of a Building" 1970.)
The NY Times had a nice write up of the Thursday performance. Couple pictures in the comments.
