Most of the really invigorating action in the art world today is a quiet affair. It takes place not at the Tate Modern or the Museum of Modern Art, nor in the Chelsea or TriBeCa galleries, but off to the side, out of the limelight. It tends to involve not the latest thing, but permanent things. Permanent things can be new; they can be old; but their relevance is measured not by the buzz they create but by silences they inspire.
