DEAR MARCIA VETROCQ

REGARDING: REPLAY THE ATTITUDES EXHIBITION

I WAS MOST IMPRESSED BY THE CARE & ATTENTION GIVEN TO THE WORKS & THE ATTEMPT TO RE-CREATE A PHYSICAL MISE-EN-SCENE WITHIN THE AMBIANCE OF THE ORIGINAL INSTALLATION

ATTEMPTING TO UNDERSTAND HOW THIS EXHIBITION BECAME SUCH A BENCHMARK FOR THE 20TH CENTURY WHEN IN FACT THE LASTING RESULTS OF THE SHOW ARE MORE ABOUT THE DYNAMICS OF THE MELDING OF ARTISTS THAT FOUND THEMSELVES IN THE MIDST OF OTHER ARTISTS WITH A MINDSET THAT ALLOWED FOR COEXISTENCE       LEADING TO WHAT WE TODAY KNOW AS THE INTERNATIONAL ART WORLD

THE WORKS THEMSELVES HAD ALREADY ENTERED THE CULTURE       THE AMSTERDAM EXHIBITION OP LOSSE SCHROEVEN HAD PRECEDED BERN       GALLERISTS WERE SHOWING MANY OF THE ARTISTS

BERN AT THAT MOMENT GAVE A MAPPING TO A COSMOS

BEST REGARDS

I REMAIN
