You like art. You know nothing about it. Where to start?
How about our beginners art reading list! This list is for all the friends over the years who have asked me what they should read to learn about art and the art world. No one wants to flip through a text book to learn about art. You won’t have to, with these books.
This week on the Jerry Saltz watch, the critic complains about artists making work that looks like other artists. He also doesn’t like that Michael Fried doesn’t write about any women artists in his new book Four Honest Outlaws. To quote the critic, “WTF”. Also, Matthew Collins hates the art world, facebook ads are icky and um, who wants to trade some video games for an Iguana? We’ve got a Craigslist ad for you!
