If you've ever gone to galleries and wondered, "Why is dipping yourself in Vaseline considered art?" read this book! Jerry Saltz, art critic for the Village Voice, writes about art in a personal, non-jargony, non-academic way that's totally refreshing. His opinionated essays help you understand why some contemporary artists stand out from the crowd of conventional copycats. I also love his review of the Matisse/Picasso show at MoMA, with his Beatles analogy that, among fans, Matisse is Paul and Picasso is John.

The book contains essays from several years of his Voice reviews. Each is a pithy 900-1300 words, so the book is easy to pick up and read anywhere, anytime. Before long, you feel like an art world insider.

I read a review or two (and often three or four) a day before my daily art practice. This book is more enlightening than grad school, and much more entertaining (not to menton 40k cheaper). Jerry Saltz is wonderful, funny, smart and loves art. I once saw a lecture of his that went like 2 hours over schedule, & you have never seen a group of artists more engrossed-- we were all perched forward on our seats like a bunch of kindergardners, wide and glassy eyed. Jerry, I hope you read this one day... You said if we don't read you, you won't read us! Well, it's always a pleasure to read you. Comic, poet, theorist, academic and punk all rolled up in one. You and Roberta are amazing...

Used book was in great condition. This is an absolutely AMAZING read. I love it so much. Very raw and entertaining. I learned so much about visual language, curation, and critiquing works.

Great short criticism/reviews written so that the regular person can understand! No overload of "art-speak". Also ideal for a synopsis of an artist.
