August 13, 2015

By Holland Cotter, The New York Times

 

"[Sullivan] wanted to talk about a different morality, the morality of aesthetics, looks, ornament, and how buildings can aspire to being art objects. Sullivan’s subject, still very much with us, is posed — though flipped around — in this group show at Cristin Tierney, organized by the architect Warren James. Here, we’re seeing art objects made in an architectural spirit."
