stuff you only find out from the blogosphere

According to the Fallon and Rosof Artblog, there was a talk at the Philadelphia Institute of Contemporary Art with Richard Artschwager, whose show just ended yesterday at the Miami MoCA, and Suzanne Delehanty, director of the Miami Art Museum and former director of the Philly ICA, who gave Artschwager his first solo museum show in 1979. Links here and here.
I continue to find Artschwager's work dreadful but some of the sculptural works at the ICA show, which were not in the MoCA show, look a little more compelling. It's also interesting to put Delehanty in some historical perspective.
I wish the people at MAM and MoCA would look at the ICA website and ask themselves if their websites are as good. (They're not. MAM's is gaining bubbles at the expense of usability, and MoCA's has always been nutty.)
