Art's Properties by David Joselit

I attended the Live Panel event at Paula Cooper Gallery in Chelsea discussing David Joselit's new book Art's Properties with Susan Buck-Morss, Michelle Kuo and Courtney J. Martin.

I took notes.

Postscript: I'll have to re-read Joselit's review of the Met's Trompe L'oeil exhibition. I remember that Joselit was disturbed that those curators had the temerity to assert a novel interpretation of Cubism, one different than the one he was comfortable with. Joselit went to low blows to do the job, calling them Trumpists or something in that vein. Seems to conflict with the spirit of anyone sympathetic with alterity.

Like I said, I've got some rereading and studying to do before I set this to concrete...
