Bad at Art Forum #2: Cosmologies and the Artists Who Build Them

An artist’s aesthetic, as William Kentridge once noted, often comes into existence by way of that which has been let in out of necessity. An artist’s cosmology, however, is built. Think Henry Darger’s (1)Vivian Girls, or Trenton Doyle Hancock’s "Mounds" and "Vegans."...
