There is something wrong with the brand of criticism that says: this book ain't a book, this album ain't an album, and this movie ain't a movie. That's the definition of intellectual dishonesty -- and it ain't furthering your cause.
I was intrigued when I read about a recent retrospective exhibition of "Voids" at the Pompidou Centre, where 9 empty rooms were devoted to 50 years of works of nothing, all by artists who had the same idea: That nothing is the best way to say something.
Dozens of other art writers, critics and bloggers have been writing about the Broad since it opened last week, and after having actually "seen" it, some have made prose of its alleged deficiencies.

If you have an "eye for art" and a keen interest in inspecting the surface of works of art, both out of curiosity and a quest for deeper meaning, your abilities are linked to an increasingly outdated notion of connoisseurship.
The exhibition 'Richard Estes: Painting New York City' opened March 10 at the Museum of Arts and Design and is the first solo show by the octogenarian painter in a New York museum.
It does not come as a surprise that in times of the 'selfie', portraiture as an artistic genre seems to be a casualty. The thing is that painting portraits takes far too long. We just cannot hold our attention for that long.
Art Critic Jerry Saltz maintains a pretty fantastic instagram account. With over 900 posts, 87,000 followers, and a committed audience of likers and commenters, Saltz has generated something of a house style for punny-and-irreverent instagramming.
Needless to say, Gréaud wasn't thrilled with the low appraisal of his efforts, and he took to social media to express his
