“It is hard to imagine that our parents, the smart artists of the historical establishment, were . . . a bunch of ragtag hipster nerds in cutoff shorts.” — Andrea Zittel

“With a certain tendentiousness I often returned to Cindy Sherman and Nan Goldin during the course’s unraveling; having initially emphasized their obvious differences, gradually I began to refer to the artists by a single sobriquet, ‘Cindy Goldin.’” — David Rimanelli

And: Linking Richard Serra’s recent work as installed at Dia:Beacon to Olafur Eliasson’s and Anish Kapoor’s projects for Tate Modern, art historian James Meyer traces a “genealogy of scale and size in the art of the last half century” against a “scenario of unrelenting global museological competition.”

“Having demanded and inspired the enlarged spaces that museum directors and trustees find it so necessary to proffer, Richard Serra’s sculpture has become the contemporary museum’s major draw.” — James Meyer
