Art Bests and Worsts

If any of you are still out there, reading the blog in between shopping, sleeping, and general lazing about, take a few minutes to check out the article below, which ranks the top ten best and worst art moments of the decade. The slide show largely forgets the first half of the decade but is still an interesting summation of major art-world events from recent years.

Best and Worst

Personally, I can think of several "bests" of my own:

"The Age of Discrepancies: Art and Visual Culture in Mexico, 1968-1997," an exhibit and archive organized by the Museo Universitario de Ciencias y Arte, whose catalog has become a veritable "Bible" for contemporary art in Mexico

Feminist art and art history's big moment in 2007 with the mounting of both LACMA's "Wack! Art and the Feminist Revolution" and the Brooklyn Museum's "Global Feminisms" exhibitions

MOMA's 2007 Richard Serra Retrospective

The "worsts" for me are harder to name. I'll have to keep thinking on that.

How about you, readers? What would you list as any art bests and worsts from this year or recent history?
