Blake Gopnik Buys Artwork

"At first glance, any big survey of contemporary art is likely to come across as an anything-goes mess of unrelated objects. But hang around in the art world long enough and you start to notice that a certain sameness, built around a handful of recurrent themes and strategies, underlies all that variety."
Gopnik does a pretty good mini-review of Jennifer Dalton's PowerPoint presentation at Curator's Office and buys a CD ROM of Dalton's piece.

Bravo Blake!
