so what

IMG_3376 - CopyThe Metropolitan Museum of Art might be struggling financially(see the New York Times article of April 21), but I also feel it is struggling to aesthetically.  The current site-specific installation on the rooftop is uninteresting and flat; it is no wonder that the museum is in trouble. PschoBarn by Cornelia Parker is out of context.  So What!  Yes, the materials come from a company that takes down and re-uses materials from old barns.  So What!  Yes, it’s fun to look at the New York Skyline and look down on Central Park from the vantage point of this hopper-esque house. So What!
