Big Shaq Attack: “Size Does Matter” at The FLAG Art Foundation

When competing for the ever-shrinking entertainment dollar in this ever-struggling economy, art museums and galleries compete to find bigger and better gimmicks to catch the public eye. In the new exhibition Size Does Matter at The FLAG Art Foundation, they may have come up with the biggest gimmick yet—all 7’1” and 320 pounds of the one and only Shaquille O'Neal, basketball superstar and larger-than-life American icon. FLAG asked Shaq to curate a show with the theme of bigger (and sometimes smaller) is better. The results are surprisingly good. At the very least, FLAG has set a record for the biggest curator ever—one that may never be topped. Please come over to Picture This at Big Think to read more of "Big Shaq Attack."

[Many thanks to Roy for pointing out this big show to me.]
