A LETTER TO RAPHAEL RUBINSTEIN from Daniel Wiener
I am addressing this letter to you in honor of the art criticism we wrote together in the 1980s, trading paper manuscripts back and forth with revisions long before the convenience of sending texts through the digital ether. I have been thinking about your recent writing on provisional painting and have seen the work of two sculptors whose current shows may present an alternative take on the provisional.
