QuibellPaul: The Art Angle Podcast: Jerry Saltz on What It Takes to Be an Art Critic Today

jerrysaltz: Please listen to me on “The Great Women Artists” podcast. I listen to all podcasts at x2 speed; and - I am a very slow talker with a terrible Midwestern accent. And - I never listen to my own podcasts, so this could just me nattering on again.

KenAyu_RG: Abstraction brings the world into more complex, variable relations it can extract beauty, alternative topographies, ugliness, and intense actualities from seeming nothingness. -Jerry Saltz RALPHGAIL LigayaNgIsatIsa

KenAyu_RG: that he redefined the idea of beauty, that he combined painting, sculpture, photography, and everyday life with such gall, and that he was interested in, as he put it, 'the ability to conceive failure as progress.' -Jerry Saltz RALPHGAIL LigayaNgIsatIsa

_ayyumii: Not because he's the biggest, best, or the richest of his kind. But because in some ways he's the weirdest (which is saying a lot when you're talking about the wonderful, wicked, lovable, and annoying creatures known as art dealers). -Jerry Saltz RALPHGAIL LigayaNgIsatIsa

_ayyumii: My nominee for Best Picture of the year - maybe the best picture ever, because it's essentially made up of and is an ecstatic love letter to all other movies - is Christian Marclay's endlessly enticing must-see masterpiece 'The Clock.' -Jerry Saltz RALPHGAIL LigayaNgIsatIsa

_ayyumii: Those who love him love that he sells the most art they take it as a point of faith that this proves Kinkade is the best. But his fans don't only rely on this supply-and-demand justification. They go back to values. -Jerry Saltz RALPHGAIL LigayaNgIsatIsa

HuisceBeatha: My latest audiobook: Jerry Saltz’s Art Is Life, a chronological collection of 20 years’ worth of essays/reviews of anyone who’s made a ripple or wave in art since the late 1990s to today. It’s wonderful to have a book that fills in the cracks of my years in NYC as an art-goer

HuisceBeatha: What’s the word for when you knew something was burbling at the time, but you didn’t have access/time/money/maturity to experience it yourself? Saltz is making me have nostalgia for things I didn’t live but was so close to I could smell it and have FOMO. Thank you, Uncle Jerry

nwi_jsp: Jerry Saltz at the Music Box Theatre at Chicago Humanities Festival: All art is contemporary, filtered through the lens of now.

nwi_jsp: Jerry Saltz at the Music Box Theater at Chicago Humanities Festival: Mommy and daddy have a hole in their hearts that only art can fill. We’re the smelly shamans on the edge of the village trying to convince them what we make is of value.

nwi_jsp: Jerry Saltz at the Music Box Theater at the Chicago Humanities Festival: If you want to be a garage band and be pure, be pure. Purity is the worst thing for me. I’m interested in art that’s manure on the garden.

TheoChron: You know when you see awesome looking AI art and then you zoom at 100% and it looks like utter crapola (to paraphrase Jerry Saltz)? Well, if you actually spend the time painting the damn thing it can look like this:

Rogue_Press_: “ART IS LIFE: Icons & Iconoclasts, Visionaries & Vigilantes, & Flashes Of Hope In The Night,” By Jerry Saltz. (A Book Review).

crosberg: LOLing at the use of WE in "We should not generalize." Say it clearly & proudly Jerry Saltz. YOU should not generalize, but you are. I don't measure the impact of political comics by what DC and Marvel are putting out. Also LOLing at Warhol being 'political' in this context.

crosberg: Parts of this piece could be applied to comics, too. Important art with something political to say is all around us, especially in the age of the internet and the instability we're seeing. BUT.

Emily Dickinson Poem
Drowning is not so pitiful
 by Emily Dickinson

1718

Drowning is not so pitiful
As the attempt to rise
Three times, 'tis said, a sinking man
Comes up to face the skies,
And then declines forever
To that abhorred abode,
