Quotes

"I saw people talk about the politics of history in Titus's show, and I saw people talk about real policy in Theaster's show," Jackson-Dumont said. "Museums are places where you can get at these really tough issues through something that tastes like ice cream going down . I've had conversations [over the Flagellators] about conflict resolution, about pure painting, about literacy, about class, about Chris Ofili's work [a Virgin Mary portrait incorporating elephant dung] being attacked at the Brooklyn Museum. That attack erupted an entire conversation about funding and who has the right to decide. And what are the excrements that came out of Christ's body? This artist of color comes in and brings this conversation that becomes a disruptive dialogue, but one that is really real, that touches people deep."
...Writer Michael Kimmelman called the quilts "some of the most miraculous works of modern art America has produced" in his New York Times review
...On Wednesday, Siegel asked Von Heyl to recall her thoughts when first presented with the idea. "I didn't see how it would directly link to my work" Von Heyl remembered
"They are going to think the images are an ad for an exhibition, he added, saying he thought Art Everywhere was little more than "a pop-up stunt that in the end would be "demeaning to the art."
