Reality TV's Thoroughly 'Modern' Mistakes (NPR)
"If you watch Project Runway " or any other design-oriented reality show " you'll hear the word "modern" employed over and over again. But in the context of reality TV, the word is often being misapplied. Modern and contemporary can " and do " mean the same thing, of course. But in the world of art and design, "modern" means Kandinsky or Picasso, Schoenberg or Stravinsky. It means daring experimental writers such as Ezra Pound or Gertrude Stein. It means Frank Lloyd Wright sweeping out the overstuffed and fusty in favor of long, clean lines."

"A fire in Oiticica's brother's house has destroyed 'an estimated 90%' of the [Projecto Helio Oiticica]'s holdings. Some installations and conceptual projects designed to be recreated are fine, of course, but his paintings and sculptures, including his incredible bolides, minimalist experiments in experiential color from the early 60s that remind me of Anne Truitt's genre-breaking works, are gone."
