Frieze Magazine Most significant themed shows of 2006, Stuart Comer

‘"The Secret Public: The Last Days of the British Underground 1978–88’, at Kunstverein Munich, and the Centre of Attention’s ‘Fast and Loose (My Dead Gallery)’, at the Fieldgate Gallery in Whitechapel, indicate the need to re-examine a London that has fallen into the cracks between the prolific histories of Punk and yBa. Both were thrilling and incomplete, and one hopes there will be many more similar efforts to come. ‘Tomorrowland: CalArts in Moving Pictures’, ran throughout the summer at New York’s MoMA and revealed Los Angeles’ glorious schizophrenia in film programmes that ranged from work by heavyweights at Pixar and Laika to more Conceptual efforts by the likes of Christopher Williams and Jack Goldstein."
