Defaced Rothko


For those of you trying to keep up with the evolving story of the defaced Rothko, the blog Hyperallergic: Sensitive to Art & Its Discontents is a good place to start.  Co-founder  Hrag Vartanian has been closely following and blogging on this episode since it was first reported on October 7.  And take a look at Artinfo‘s article on Yellowism, the movement behind the motives of the tagger / artist Vladimir Umanets: “WTF Is Yellowism? A Guide to the Obscure Movement Behind the Tate Rothko Attack.”
