The Origin of Roberta Smith! Special Supplement to the Friday Edition of the NYTimes

There is, unfortunately, not much Roberta Smith in today's NYTimes... so, I will give you some Roberta Smith. But not just any Roberta Smith. I will give you the ORIGIN of Roberta Smith.

Artforum,letters page, Oct/1970
This is the 1970 letter that the twenty-two year old Roberta wrote to ArtForum, taking umbrage with Robert Pincus-Witten's review of Donald Judd, at Castelli.

The Pincus-Witten article, Fining It Down, was published in the June 1970 issue of Artforum. Roberta's letter ran in the October 1970 issue.

thats great! I also like the Bochner "bullshit" response to that other artists' accusations.

I might be wrong about this - but isn't this around the time she worked as a studio assistant for Judd?

martin said...

she wrote this after more than a year of intense judd study, not sure at what point she started to work with him.

It looks like Art Forum used to be a decent magazine.

Bill Gusky said...

I like her a bunch. Yay, Roberta! Cogent and well-stated observations even as a pup.
