Roberta Smith, "Dana Schutz: Missing Pictures,"The New York Times, 16 April 2009, p. C27, illustrated in color
"I think there's something kind of utopian and slightly absurd about group effort. I was thinking about this recently, we might be the last generation to know what it's like to live private lives. It's a fictional thing – the turning of public space into a fictional environment. So I'm interested in how people try to define themselves through these various identity groups." Dana Schutz
