Ugly Feelings at Townhouse Gallery

I don’t want to add to the snake oil-salesman reputation of curators, but art people are always talking in one way or another about a “crisis” — of representation, for example, or ethics, or some other noble yet nebulous concept — and then coming up with exhibitions that claim to face up to it. It’s an inevitable feature of a profession that is constantly called upon to justify its existence.
