God forbid a woman is successful at making BIG art. No one seems to be complaining about the big Gursky prints or the big Anelsm Kiefer paintings, why does Sherman's work generate such ridiculous criticism? I'd say her work is about the right size, and it's NOT actually self-portraits, but an exploration of women and their roles in general. Should be a show well worth seeing full of provocative work.
Dunno. Sour grapes? Doubt anyone even read the NYT links I posted. Too troubling, I guess. Maybe even too challenging. No one said beans about the "lost" Robert Frank photos.
