In 1971,Nochlin earned widespread attention for her landmark essay “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?,”which approached that question with incisive and nuanced analysis, demonstrating how, for centuries, institutional and societal structures had made it “impossible for women to achieve artistic excellence, or success, on the same footing as men, no matter what the potency of their so-called talent, or genius.”

I passed the above hole in the wall place in the middle of nowhere and than finally found a person in the wine trade that ate there. "Yes I went once years ago when I worked for a Japanese Trading Co. This is where the owner took clients so they would get a home cooked meal."

Going tonight, $12 corkage.

Brother and I had a little Festivus: the Airing of Grievances. It was amicable. But there's a long way to go. He still reacts very badly to criticism, and still does lots of dumbass things. Apparently I'm "solving problems that don't exist."

Despite the lure of easy profit, Davis and his business partner, David Dolginow, have never tried to capitalize on the lucrative sweet-cider trend. Instead, they’ve embarked on a far more ambitious—if not quixotic—quest for perfection. Their goal with Shacksbury, and in particular with the company’s offshoot, the Lost Apple Project, is essentially to bring America’s greatest apples back from the dead, scouring Vermont roadsides and pastures for forgotten strains that once lined the roads and property lines of Colonial New England.

Selected pages from the Spätgotisches Musterbuch des Stephan Schriber, a manuscript which appears to be some kind of sketchbook, belonging to a 15th century monk working in South-West Germany, where ideas and layouts for illuminated manuscripts were tried out and skills developed.


Good evening. For Expo Chicago, Gagosian Gallery has put together the darkest, most cohesive group show I’ve ever seen in an art fair booth. (I’m told it was assembled by Andy Avini, a Gagosian director who is also an artist, which makes sense—it seems the product of an artist’s eye.) One of two entrances takes you past a tough trio of works: Cady Noland’s Mirror Device (1987) comprises a mirror with a metal bar mounted in front of it, from which descend a pistol and handcuffs; the mirror reflects the adjacent silver John Chamberlain crushed car parts sculpture, Women’s Voices (2005). Kitty-corner is a black Andy Warhol Electric Chair.
