Ann Craven at Southard Reid


Suppose a sci-fi alternate history, post-war painting replaced with this. Ann Craven, Lily van der Stokker, Judith Bernstein, Nicola Tyson, cuteness of content, rather than flatness with swagger. Clementine Greenberg. Everyone really having said fuck the Bauhaus and everything was fluorescent and green. Not sure what difference can really be ascertained between Craven and Rothko really, besides the surrounding culture? What would have been the world then? Would Lisa Frank still be cool?
