Kilian Rüthemann & Niklaus Wenger
On this week’s roundup I looked at some work by Kilian Rüthemann & Niklaus Wenger, watched a fist fight between two women on a bus, and read about Ken Isaacs’ Knowledge Box on the Wall Street Journal. I am finishing up a long day at work and getting ready for openings in the west loop. Hope to see you there.
I couldn’t agree more. @TylerGreenDC on the hetero-normalizing of David Hockney.
