Final countdown

Here's another reason to go see Offense & Dissent before it closes next Wednesday. While some of the content appears headed for an afterlife in other media (on the university archives site as well as other websites), this will be your last chance to see the brilliant commissioned editorial art, including this work Dimitry Tetin designed to work with/off the Matsunaga section. Its masterful palimpsest of New School catalogs and pixelated images of a racist culture - you can't see them except at a distance! - all in a display evoking the original Matsunaga exhibit powerfully and eloquently frame the question of a school's capacity to transcend the times it lives in.
