New modern, modernist art revival

Snowden’s  NSA “disclosures have fuelled debates over mass surveillancegovernment secrecy, and the balance between national security and information privacy.” Perhaps they will lead to policy reform and more government oversight as though some actual democratic process had begun. Has a democratic process begun? Is there a lesser democratic evil?

Glenn Greenwald told Brent Bambury, host of CBC Radio’s Day 6.

“There are many, many, many more significant documents about Canadian surveillance and partnership with the NSA that will be reported and, I think, will be quite enlightening for the people of Canada.”
 
Is Canada a democratic country?
Is there a need for a new modern, (modernist) art revival capable of articulating what major media outlets will not?

Jay DeFeo

Jay DeFeo: A Retrospective is organized by Dana Miller, Curator of the Permanent Collection.

This retrospective is the definitive exhibition to date of the work of Jay DeFeo (1929–89). At the outset of her career in the 1950s, DeFeo was at the center of a vibrant community of Beat artists, poets, and musicians in San Francisco. Although she is best known for her monumental painting The Rose (1958–66, now in the Whitney’s collection), which she spent eight years making and which later languished hidden behind a wall for two decades, DeFeo created an astoundingly diverse range of works spanning four decades. Her unconventional approach to materials and intensive, physical process make DeFeo a unique figure in postwar American art who defies easy categorization.
