The fourth floor of "Younger than Jesus" at the New Museum, with Loris Gréaudís Nothing Is True Everything Is Permitted, Stairway Edit (2007), James Richardís video installation, center, and paintings by Josh Smith. The young woman in the track suit is Ryan Ganderís This Consequence (2005-08)
The title of the New Museum's survey of young folks' art, "Younger than Jesus," is, of course, incomplete. It should be "Younger than Jesus Was When He Was Crucified," but don't think that an alternative title should be the Who's mantra from "My Generation": "hope I die before I get old," for these artists definitely wish to live and prosper. It is how they wish to do it that is so curious.
