New York Times Hates, Possibly Jealous Of, BCAM

New, 23 comments

In two withering reviews, the Grey Lady's architecture and art critics tear L.A.'s newest cultural addition, the Broad Contemporary Art Museum, a new one. In his piece, arch-writer Nicolai Ouroussoff uses sentences like, "[BCAM is] architecture without conviction... To those with long memories, the design’s failures may merely seem like more of the same." AND the title of Roberta Smith's BCAM-centric art review ("Rounding Up The Usual Suspects") couldn't display more disdain for our new cultural monument unless it was titled "SHIT" in big, bold capital letters.
