The Pictures Generation

The Pictures Generation 1974-1984, a massive exhibition featuring photos, videos, multimedia works by renown artists of that time. Not really my cup of tea. Though I found quite a few of the pieces interesting, I just wasn't all that intrigued by their presentation nor was I sure of their significance.

My favorite piece of all was one by David Salle entitled Bearding the Lion in His Den, featuring two black and white photographs on opposite walls of a dark room with a row of ten light bulbs running down the center of the floor.
Check out the great slideshow on ART.CULT.
