Documenta 12--14

I think there is a quote that, "I have never seen a good Rothko, but I have seen a great roomful of Rothkos". I dont know who said it, but I am going to attribute it to Assaf Naor who reminded me of this phenomenon a while ago. Anyway, DC has a roomful (or two) of Rothkos.

Likewise, Documenta is an art show (Not Art Basel, but Art Kassel!), it may be good by itself, but great seen in mental juxtaposition. Here are the New York Times reviews of  Documenta 12 from 2007, 13 from 2012 and 14 from 2017 which has just started.
