Tamsin Smith

Art has a way of sneaking up on us, getting under the skin and stripping off the confusion, cowardice and fear that holds us back from our most authentic actions. The artist's approach takes many forms from stealthy to direct.

I was dumfounded to read Ariella Budick's comically misguided Financial Times review of the MoMA's Lygia Clark show, calling it, "a curiously hermetic affair." Dismissal of the unknown is not what one hopes to find in an art writer.

I've just returned to New York from a ten-week stay in Brazil, where I found the cultural scene energized by a whirlwind of gallery openings, art fairs and special exhibitions. Lingering in my memory are several moments that together afford, I think, a nice mosaic view of Brazil right now.
