Hairstyles replace art

Seeing an extraordinary hairstyle walking up Madison Avenue yesterday put me in a hairstyle mood. I ran around the Whitney announcing that CNN was reporting as its lead story that postmodernism had "ended at 3pm this afternoon" and that consequently hairstyles had replaced contemporary art. So when I got to the School of Visual Arts open studios I naturally paid more attention to the hairstyles on display than the art.
