“At the press opening, Jersey-based LaToya Ruby Frazier told me that she didn’t think she would be there at all if it weren’t for the “crowd-sourced curating” conceit. Reviewing her suite of black-and-white photos — lonely images of family claustrophobia — you have to admit that it’s not a particularly hip idiom, about as far from trendy nomadism as possible (incidentally, Frazier’s photos correspond to none of the four concerns the curators laid out as characteristic to the current “generation”). Yet at the same time, at a moment when everyone is talking about the “return of content,” Frazier’s sobriety might just be the closest thing in “Younger than Jesus” to the look of the future.”
