I figured into a report on Vik Muniz by Leah Ollman for the Los Angeles Times a couple of days ago. Ollman quoted a review I wrote of Muniz's show at the Miami Art Museum last year.
Muniz and MAM curator Peter Boswell appear to respond, but this is likely an illusion of editing, and thus I hesitate to answer their remarks. Nevertheless, Boswell's use of "get" in various forms six times in the course of eight sentences bears noting, at least. It represents the degree to which aesthetic apprehending and intellectual understanding commingle in some people, each compromising the integrity of the other. Too, saying that unnamed third persons plural "just aren't getting it" saves him the trouble of countering their particular criticisms by, essentially, insulting their fashion sense.
I only Google myself every couple of months, I promise.
