I was there the same day! I completely agree about the conduct, it was very orderly. I loved the art from the 1960's exhibit, but the contemporary exhibit was lacking. Bravery indeed is needed on the part of a curator to accurately capture the art in "tumultuous times" such as these.

I think that part of the problem is that the institutions that display art are in the business of answering to multiple funders, and in the process, take a middle path that leads to mediocrity. I think the Hammer is another great example of an institution that tries to pass itself off as capturing the art world zeitgeist. Wandering through their shows, one would never know (for example) that there's a war going on.
