Dueling L.A. Virgins; Undercover in Toledo

Was Tim Hawkinson really covertly replying to Robert Gober in Los Angeles? Was El Greco smuggling a jab at the filioque clause into the city where it was first codified? I think so, and you — that's right, you — can read about both scenarios at the Transpositions decade roundup and in the Wheaton Alumni Magazine. The latter is my love letter to Renaissance art history, Christian humanism, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Midwest (with help from Mary Magdalene, Teresa of Ávila & Kerry James Marshall).
