With 27 days remaining in 2006, the year-end lists are starting to come out. Artforum‘s just-published December issue includes kudos for the Walker in its top-ten lists: Mike Kelley put the Philippe Vergne-curated exhibition Cameron Jamie at number 7, and artist Thomas Lawson, focusing on the work of Rodney McMillian, included the show Ordinary Culture: Heikes/Helms/McMillian, curated by Doryun Chong, as his eighth pick. Curator Francesco Bonami included Thomas Hirschhorn‘s Gladstone Gallery showing of Superficial Engagement, which included the installation Abstract Resistance, a Walker new acquisition. “The best CliffsNotes to America’s macabre folly in Iraq,” he writes, the show might not change the world, but proves that “the world can change art.”
