Letters

Perhaps this was an interesting, even countercultural stance to take when our parents were our age; personally, I'd like to think that we've learned from their example, and instead of cocaine-fueled cliché, we can strive toward something a little more meaningful, something offering more than frat-house values with a fashion-house sheen.

Aletti acts as McGinley's apologist: "If [McGinley's work] makes you think of Warhol and Tillmans, that's fine. McGinley's not thinking of history, art or otherwise; he's already getting off his next shot." Is relative youthfulness a valid excuse for having no sense of one's place in history? What Aletti sees as "rude and funny and fresh" in McGinley's work, I see as wholly, irredeemably boring.
