Seeing Out Louder
Seeing Out Louder by Jerry Saltz
Follow Saltz through Chelsea galleries and uptown museums, alternative spaces and out-of-the-way holes-in-the-wall. He writes about famous artists and fallen stars, emerging talent and diamonds-in-the-rough. He covers art fairs, auctions, museum politics, and art world bad behavior. Tracking the most recent all-out orgy of art and money, Saltz considers its effect on art and asks, "Now that the money is gone, how might art and the art world put their houses in order?"
Don't miss the twists and turns as he sorts out the answers.His tools include an unsparing eye, a deep love of the art world, respect for artists, self-deprecating humor, sweet skepticism, and one of the easiest writing styles in criticism. In this sequel to his acclaimed collection, Seeing Out Loud, Jerry Saltz offers more free-wheeling essays, reasoned reviews, thought-pieces, and screeds about contemporary art and its context.This "tell-it-like-it-is" collection is a must-have reference to the art world.
If Seeing Out Louder has a credo it is, "Art First. All Else Follows."
