Ken Johnson on Shepard

By now news of Shepard Fairey’s retrospective exhibition in Boston is old. But, that doesn’t mean reviews have ceased and today Ken Johnson gives his opinion in the New York Times. The views are pointed and concise. Who can disagree with this statement, “Despite its rousing first impact, the exhibition leaves you with a sense of dismay at the devaluation of a certain avant-garde dream into a kind of visual easy listening for the college-educated masses.” Johnson’s thought is, no harm in saying, in keeping with those of this site. Bravo Ken!
