The painfully obvious thing nobody is saying about the Bjork Exhibit at MOMA

Thank you!

Art & criticism by eric wayne

Bjork I wouldn’t bother writing about such a piece of fluff if I hadn’t read several reviews in which the critics bent over backwards, and forwards, to not address the central problem or issues of the exhibit, or else denied it. Everyone is panning the show because of how it was executed, but also being extremely careful to NOT say that the idea is itself bad. I suspect they are afraid to. So, I’m just going to say the painfully obvious, because the critics are cowed and shaking in their boots at the prospect of articulating the unwelcome truth that will make them look like they are out of tune with popularity.

No, Björk’s music isn’t good enough to be in the Museum of Modern Art!
