The theme of today's program is inspired by the famous Italian Western by Sergio Leone, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966). You might ask, what does that have to do with my Art Talk? Well, I must admit that going to a dozen gallery and museum shows every week, plus reading piles of articles and reviews in newspapers and magazines, give me experiences that sometimes echo the very title of this Western film.
Most of the time, I am able to find something interesting and appealing that I want to share with my audience. However, on rare occasions, I talk about an exhibition or art event that disappoints and even troubles me.
