We are one week into March Madness now, and if there’s one sector of the society you’d expect to raise their nose in disdain to the jockfest, it would be the art world.
Not at Ugallery! We have a highly competitive company bracket going (don’t ask me how I’m doing) on ESPN.com. And, for those of us with more art history in our noggins than sports trivia, we even have Modern Art Notes’ March Madness of Art, eloquently titled “The Greatest Living American Abstract Painter Tourney-ish.”
Blogger Tyler Green’s tournament tells “Jeff Koons to take his balls and go home” (har har har!). No Pop Art allowed in this tournament, just living Ab-Ex artists. Green gathered a “committee” of art experts to select the field of artists and they ended up with these top four seeds: Ellsworth Kelly, Cy Twombly, Robert Ryman and Mark Bradford.
