James Kalm visits the latest offerings from a well known proponent of the Pictures Generation Robert Longo. Coming on the New York scene like gangbusters in the late 70s, the cool kids of the Pictures Generation were seen as fashionable radicals melding deadpan representation appropriated from photos and the mass media with a hermetic post conceptual theory.
