In my recent travels though LA and New York art venues the most arousing and enflaming work I saw was Tom Patchett's "stagewerk," which is built around the life of the late artist and cult celebrity Joseph Beuys. It is a work for those who do not know much about Beuys and for those who do; for those who believe there is a crisis in the arts and for those who do not. It should be seen by those who are Beuys fans and even more so by those who are not. I am one who did not know much, believes there is a crisis, and who was not a fan.
