Noblesse Oblige

Click on Post Title for link to an article from a month or so ago on  +BILLION-  blog, for an interesting take on the positioning of painting within the curation of group shows. The 'obligation' it refers to (to place paintings within certain exhibitions) has got NOCM thinking about 'the Tuymans effect' that sprung perhaps from Documenta 11 in 2002; also remembering that he was included in that show along with  very few other painters- Cecilia Edefalk, Leon Golub and (at a push) Raymond Pettibon.
