The 2008 DeCordova Annual Exhibition

From my review of the 2008 DeCordova Annual Exhibition, the last major show at the museum before its new director Dennis Kois arrives in June:
The aim of the DeCordova Museum’s Annual Exhibition is to round up “some of the most interesting and visually eloquent” New England artists. If that’s what the DeCordova’s Rachel Rosenfield Lafo, Nick Capasso, Dina Deitsch, and Kate Dempsey have actually found in the 11 individual artists and one collective they’re featuring in the 2008 edition, the result is a depressing report of the mostly bland state of art here.
Read the rest here.

“The 2008 DeCordova Annual Exhibition,” DeCordova Museum, 51 Sandy Pond Road, Lincoln, May 10 to Aug. 17, 2008.
