The Good, the Bad, and the Very Bad: A Year in the Life of an Art Critic
Is a rousing 90 minute look at where contemporary art is now, how it got here, and where it might be going. Mr. Saltz shows slides, not only of paintings and sculptures, but of art openings, after parties, and other scenes less seen by the general public. Jerry Saltz is articulate, funny, and speaks in a way that everyone can understand.
A columnist and art critic for New York Magazine, Jerry Saltz has been nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in Criticism three times. In 2000 he was named a Finalist in this category, a rare honor indeed. He was the sole Advisor for the 1995 Whitney Biannual, and is currently also a Visiting Critic at Columbia University and Yale University.
Known for his passionate opinions, lively, no nonsense writing, and insights about Contemporary Art, and the art scene in general, Mr. Saltz is an extraordinary speaker. Having been part of the New York art world for more than two decades, he knows the ins and outs, what's good, and what's not. Better yet, he's not afraid to say what he thinks.
