I found Michael Morris' documentation of the Hermann Nitsch performance at the Western Front particularly interesting. The painterly quality of the photographs weirdly subverts the deconstructive "anti-art" Actionist performance, but at the same time underpins Nitsch's background education and the foundation of the work in (and in antitheses to) classical painting.

Building is really beautiful inside. Too bad about all the crap on the walls.

I have never seen the 2 pieces by Ken Lum. Really interesting. I could look at them for hours.......I'll come back some lunch hour and take a much closer look. Thank you to everyone who worked on this show. It is splendid.

The alley is a perfect venue for the scale of the MacLeods. They are so quietly stunning.

I may be biased, but this IS a special collection. Congratulations everyone! Particularly excited to experience Kevin Schmidt's Wild Signals again. I missed it.
