The art world is a funny place. New York’s fall season is barely under way, and the show that everyone loves to hate is Dan Colen
’s "Poetry" at Gagosian Gallery
on West 24th Street in Chelsea. And yet, despite the bad reviews, the exhibition is certain to be a success. The Jackson Pollock
-like paintings made with fruity-scented, candy-colored chewing gum, for instance, are so utterly awful that they are doomed to have historical importance.
