The art: Robert Heinecken, Untitled [“Ad Man do it justice”], 1960s.
The news: “M.I.A. Shouldn’t Have Apologized,” by Sasha Frere-Jones for NewYorker.com. Frere-Jones’ take is spot-on, particularly this part: “More to the point, television viewers were submitted to ad after ad that likened women—negatively—to sofas, cars, and candy. Mr. Winter didn’t have anything to say about that, so I’d like to raise both of my middle fingers to him and anyone who thinks profanity is somehow more harmful to our children than images of violence and misogyny.”
In a related story, I featured Heinecken’s work and a recent publication that addresses the Heinecken-as-misogynist line of feminist response to his work yesterday on Modern Art Notes.
