It is rife with overt spiritual content.U2 have, at times, been the most popular band in the world and also, arguably, one of the most important musically.

In our segmented (if not officially segregated) culture for a white sixty-year-old writer to … [Read more...]

(Why do curators write longer and longer explanations of the art in their shows in direct proportion to less … [Read more...]
