There’s a certain strain of 1960s-70s visual art that’s so sunny, so optimistic, so earnest in its belief that a better world is possible and that world would be really colorful, that it makes me cheerful whenever I see it.

But it turns out that, while Mel Bochner is actually a painter active in that era, he made this in 2013! Thanks for keeping it going, Mel Bochner, whoever you are. I like this a lot and I like the Chazen for putting it up.
