"Answer Louise Lawler’s question in October: “What would Douglas Crimp say?”

“I love Louise!”

Imagine an alternative space to museums. Describe what this space might look like.

As I translated Douglas’ essays into French, I tried to imagine the  alternative downtown art spaces in which he was invested during the  1970s and 1980s. This world feels so remote but I feel I can say with  some certainty that it was less controlled by money and the desire for  immediate recognition.
