Like many other arts institutions, the Petzel Galleryin New York has had to figure out what to do about Trump. Some institutions are closing. Instead, Petzel has been pro-active: they have mounted a selection of artists work in response to our President-elect or past work that is responsive. It is by turns cheeky, dramatic, and frightening. In addition, they have invited all-comers to submit their own video responses. One of my favorite artists, Dana Schutz, has captured Trump's descent in her usual spot-on visceral manner in a work she must have just recently completed. Perhaps it also warns us not to descend along with him. Painting by Dana Schutz, Trump Descending an Escalator, 2017. Courtesy of the artist and Petzel Gallery, New York.
