Description

Arguably one of America’s most unconventional art/cultural critics working today, Dave Hickey has, once again, assembled a collection of searing essays that challenge the critics cultural status quo. Hickey recently announced his retirement from the field of criticism due to the new extreme popularity, oversimplification and commoditization of art: “I miss being an elitist and not having to talk to idiots.” Author of popular books such as Air Guitar: Essays on Art & Democracy and The Invisible Dragon: Four Essays on Beauty, Hickey focuses this new collection of writings on cultural phenomena such as the super collector, the trope of the biennale, the loss of looking and much, much more.
