Thank God for a new generation of artists! Today’s emerging artists stay away from the pushy know-it-all attitude of macho modernists who for half a century were quick to dismiss as inferior anyone supporting a dogma not their own.

Almost immediately after British sculptor Anish Kapoor's solidarity walk for refugees with Ai Weiwei through London, he flew to Moscow to open a solo exhibition at the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center. Entitled My Red Homeland, he shows four artworks from 1993-2007 in a museum which typically focuses on Jewish history with multimedia presentations. Just recently have they decided to start showing temporary exhibitions with contemporary artists—and Kapoor is the first.
The show is strange for... [more]
