Nicolai Ouroussof spanks the MoMA for its Spanish architecture exhibit:
But you’re not a broad audience, are you?
For ourselves, we like the pretty pictures. And we can read about Spanish architectural history ourselves. But in the main it seems likely that Ouroussof has it right: It’s a big part of the character of a city whether it’s willing to be a Petri dish for architecture; why has Spain taken the role? There’s a long and interesting history to that that doesn’t have nothing to do with fascism.
