Saltz on the New Museum’s ‘Younger Than Jesus’ Show


New York art critic Jerry Saltz hit the New Museum’s “Younger Than Jesus” show this week and liked what he saw. “Instead of making art that’s about a tiny, narrow idea of what art is, it seems to be opening up. There’s more sociology, anthropology, ethnography,” he says of the works, all produced by artists under the age of 33. Watch the video to see a living sculpture, a Chinese artist’s “portraiture for the 21st century,” and the rise and fall of Rome in 24 hours.
