Last week we were sitting behind the home dugout at Yankee Stadium with Albright-Knox director Louis Grachos, watching Joe Torre’s men club Minnesota, when an art conversation broke out. Louis handed us the gorgeous catalogue "Extreme Abstraction" for the Buffalo museum’s current show, a book cleverly designed by artist Pae White in an edition of 1500.
This gave us the opportunity to do what Robert Rosenblum confessed to doing a few years back in Artforum for Gilbert and George’s "Naked Shit Pictures": review a show based solely on the catalogue! Fortunately, Pae White makes this a breeze.
