  • What the Inaugural FRONT Triennial in Cleveland Highlights …

    At the crux of this ambitious show lies the question: who is this triennial really for?Clevelanders like to tell people that there were once more millionaires on the city’s Euclid Avenue than there were on New York’s Fifth Avenue. They are also often self-deprecating. Cleveland has been through rough times since the Gilded Age: in the 1950s and ’60s, the Cuyahoga river was so polluted it caught fire several times, and in 1978 the city became the first in the US to default on its debt since the Great Depression. Its population is roughly a third as large as it was at its peak 68 years ago. Like so many Rust Belt cities, it has a world-class art museum, the Cleveland Museum of Art (CMA), built by industrialist robber barons, but has never been on the contemporary art world circuit. What better than a triennial to change that? – 这场雄心勃勃的表演的关键在于:这个三年展的真正意义是谁?克里夫兰德喜欢告诉人们,城市的欧几里德大街上的百万富翁比纽约第五大道上的百万富翁还要多。他们也常常自我贬低。自镀金时代以来,克利夫兰经历了艰难的时期:在20世纪50年代和60年代,CuaHaGa河被污染了好几次,在1978,美国成为了自大萧条以来第一个拖欠债务的城市。它的人口大约是68年前的顶峰时期的第三。像许多锈带城市一样,它有一个世界级的艺术博物馆,克利夫兰艺术博物馆(CMA),由工业强盗贵族建造,但从未出现在当代艺术世界的电路上。还有什么比三年期更好呢?
