“. . . you look to art for something that walks—goes faster than you do, that goes faster than the seasons, that doesn’t have a regular beat but surprises us, that innovates, that’s something that quickens our life and makes us be more aware of being alive and connects us more to our own time. So that sense of looking to art to deregulate our normal rhythms, to make us think more broadly, at the same time, to invest us more quickly into what surprises us, to force us to come to grips with the unexpected . . . ”
—Kirk Varnedoe, Art Historian
