I laughed when the article stated that changing the shark in the Hirst was equivalent to changing the fluorescent tube in a Dan Flavin. I guess they couldn't find a shark to interview or the curator's assistants who have to wrangle 2 dead sharks, gallons of formaldehyde and alcohol, and deep tissue injections. How many curators does it take to change a lightbulb and how many does it take to change a shark?

For your amusement, I reposted some photos from the recent Dan Flavin exhibit. Andrew, Marty and Donna managed to distract the security guard long enough for me to get these surreptitiously.
