Exhibition curated by Darsie Alexander (MFA Senior Critic) reviewed in The New Yorker (Nov. 3, 2008)

Currently on show at the Baltimore Museum of Art is a retrospective of Franz West which was curated by Darsie Alexander. The exhibition is entitled “Franz West, To Build a House You Start with the Roof: Work 1972-2008.” Peter Schjeldahl, art critic for The New Yorker, reviewed the exhibition in glowing terms:

"West is that rarest of birds: an urbane hippie. Reportedly, his studio in Vienna is part factory, part be-in. First among equals, he channels collaborative energies. (The Baltimore show’s koanlike title isn’t his; the curator Darsie Alexander thought of it, and West approved.) His art enlists, rather than addresses, its viewers."
