The Best Of Culture In 2005 (Says NY Mag)
December 13th, 2005

New York Magazine offers what it calls
its culture awards for 2005, which is really just a list of stuff (and people) their staff happened to like this year.

Here is the summary about
art
:
“In 2005, the bubble didn’t burst, and the Chelsea gallery scene kept expanding—while heavies like Matthew Marks and Damien Hirst called attention to themselves (yet again). The Met reestablished its stellar reputation. Digital art took a small step forward. Oh, and someone put a bunch of saffron fabric in the park.” (a terminally hip reference to The Gates Project)

Here is their summary about theater:
“Sondheim killed as Broadway showed a taste for butchery—not to mention molestation. Cherry Jones flew high as a nun, while Ethan Hawke wallowed in self-destruction. Amid revivals and nostalgic musicals, some playwrights proved they could smartly tackle current events. And Doug Hughes directed everything.”
