Just once, please, I wish someone would take a stand and say, "I don't like painting," then not include any in his or her show. One token painter is worse than none.Or, better yet, we wonder, why not add a second (and third and fourth) painter so that painting is a bigger part of the mix? But Saltz is right--some curators clearly prefer reading to looking.
