I am late at the party.
The retrospective had finally an air of celebrity show.
I feel abused and I am not sure why.
I think it’s because the artist would have been feeling the same way if she had been there.
The show focuses on a generous number of abstract paintings.
Mainly from the 1950s.
A selection of sculpture from the early 80’s.
Before she abandoned art completely.
What about the woman and her life.
Long life in several bodies she changed secretly with a spark of amusement.
Bodysuits with flesh.
A tyrannical relationship with her father.
Current social circumstances dictate new forms of art.
Current social circumstances make people aware.
Swipe right. Swipe left.
Be aware of the public sphere.
Be aware of gender issues.
De-proletarianize your life.
Ask for a better press release.
Pretend to be clever.
