  • Randy Kennedy writes a delightful piece on the bounty of dog art on view in New York museums. Aw, dog-casso. [The New York Times]

  • This comment thread about Nicholas O’Brien’s essay “Observations on the Proliferation of Online Galleries” is picking up steam on Google+. We plan on offering up our thoughts soon. [Google+]
  • If Transylvanian imprisonment and homosexual spies don’t pique your interest in an artist, I guess nothing will. [Interview]
  • Yesterday, House Republicans held a hearing on contraception – without any women. [The Nation]
  • Since when is the use of stock imagery in art a “relatively new phenomenon that is proliferating daily”? [Frieze]
  • Next weekend at Dia: Beacon, Yvonne Rainer, that queen of proper performance art etiquette who wrote a letter dismissing Marina Abramovic, will be re-performing several of her earliest works from the 1960s, alongside several recent ones. [Dia: Beacon]
