Non-Objective Reporting

Unfortunately Art or Idiocy? has been on an unplanned hiatus. Coming up we will be continuing our Ten for Ten series with some more great contributions including lists from Ben Meisner and Uriel Orlow. In the meantime, enjoy this gem by Kasimir Malevich. Today the Art Institute announced that it acquired the Suprematist masterpiece from the supreme art dealer Larry Gagosian, who was acting on behalf of Malevich's heirs.
