The Wearin' of the Green

Fri, Feb 26, 2010

This Tuesday night, modern art commentator, blogger, and avid Washington Capitals fan Tyler Green comes to the Wexner Center as part of a panel discussion Spectator/Sport: A Panel on Athletics, Art, and Masculinity surrounding our Hard Targets exhibition currently on view. While Green is both revered and reviled from his Modern Art Notes (MAN) soapbox overlooking the world of contemporary visual art, his presence here at the Wex, during Hard Targets, is an especially timely one. From his penchant for scooping old guard news outlets, to his in-depth coverage of recent deaccession controversies, Green is essential reading for anyone interested in visual art and museum culture. That The Wall Street Journal called MAN "the most influential of all visual arts blogs" while Artnet labeled him "notoriously self-righteous" should give you an idea what you're in for Tuesday evening. Along with Wex exhibitions curator Christopher Bedford, artist Kori Newkirk and soccer blogger and visual studies scholar Jennifer Doyle, it's sure to be a memorable event. Admission is free. Don't miss it.
