Let’s Not and Say We Did is a new Babes At The Museum series that reviews art exhibits without actually attending them.

Why peel off your pajamas and physically drag yourself to a museum, when our eyeballs are so tightly fastened to our multifarious display screens that a noteworthy chunk of our art consumption and critique is absorbed through some of our favorite portals like Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr and Twitter.

In this first installment, our bodacious ink slinger Marie-Clare Treseder Gorham ”attends” the Ai Weiwei’s @Large exhibit at Alcatraz and culls some of social media’s yays, nays, and whatevs to offer a glimpse into what people —who actually attended the show — are saying about the artwork.

Who needs words when you’ve got eyeballs and articulate wrist action. Londoner-cum-Brooklynite artist, Shantell Martin tries her hand at our first ever, wordless art review. Her latest line drawing “Looking UP and ROUND from objects FOUND,” illustrates her impression of the Brooklyn Museum’s mesmerizing and monumental El Anatsui exhibition.

Babes At The Museum '1993 Mix' by Cedar

For the longest time, I’ve admitted to not knowing anything about art. I stick to celebrating the unsung style that garbs today’s art-loving cabooses while fully admitting to being an ignoramus when it comes to actual art history. With all my cards on the table, my steerage through the art world’s fringe has been a lot more bearable.

Lucky for us, writer, photographer and all around power-babe, Cedar Pasori is our first contributor with the kind of art juice in her bones necessary for weaving together the website’s first ever, totally amazing “art review.”

Last week, Cedar sampled the pleasures of the highly anticipated ‘NYC 1993: Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star’ exhibit at the New Museum.  But instead of taking the obsessively scrupulous approach to art criticism by arguing the impossible and dissecting the minute, Cedar has prepared for us a delightfully unserious take on art commentary.

Read (and listen) to the first ever Babes At The Museum art review by Cedar, after the jump.
