Holland Carter reviews "The Pictures Generation" at the Met

Apart from a few years in the 1960s when the New York culture czar Henry Geldzahler tossed some stardust around, the Metropolitan Museum was a fusty backwater for contemporary art, and an object of scorn in the art world. New work seemed to arrive only in bland job-lot batches. Exhibitions kept being awarded to angsty British painters who had peaked before World War II.

With "The Pictures Generation, 1974-1984," the museum has finally made a big leap into the present, or near-present. A decades-long snooze may be over.

Read the complete review in The New York Times.
