These Artworks Are So Bad, They're Good A NOD TO THE LEGENDARY "BAD PAINTING" EXHIBITION

In 1978, the New Museum held an unprecedented exhibition that included paintings and drawings from 14 different artists who had “discarded classical drawing modes in order to present a humorous, often sardonic, intensely personal view of the world.” Arguably, the show had the best exhibition title in the history of exhibition titles: "Bad Painting." Here, Artspace's curators have put together a provocative collection of “bad” paintings, drawings, and prints by a range of great artists, including two artists from the original New Museum exhibition: William Copley and Judith Linhares.
