The Met means to be hip, if only in its fashion


This image of the original Hirst shark (it has since been replaced, as it fell apart) was found at the Art News Blog.

“But the Met means to be hip, if only in its fashion. At 16, ‘The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living’ is a golden oldie. It suggests that the museum intends to show only unquestionably anointed art, preferably at least a decade after its anointment.”

Just When You Thought It Was Safe “Damien Hirst’s shark, titled ‘The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living,’ from 1991, will be on display at the Metropolitan Museum for three years.” Roberta Smith New York Times 10/16/07
