Everything old is new again. The cyclical nature of taste and fashion seems to operate on this edict but not so in art. Works from the past decades can still be fresh and relevant but contingent upon the sensibilities of the times or its conventions needing a counter intuitive reaction.

Some words from Linda Yablonsky.
During her life this person has written only one novel but she’s among the most authoritative art critics in this city and she has the power to trigger a really good reaction to an event or, especially, to give it the thumbs down. We’re not talking about Jep Gambardella [...]
As Director Richard P. Townsend explained during the press preview, MOBIA is following up its Back to Eden show (reviewed in AF 8/12/14) with something a bit more unassuming and introspective, before rocking New York City with their Sculpture in the Age of Donatello show this coming February.
