“It’s not like I’m worried about my, uh, reputation.”



Any art critic who says things like “I despise art education. Art doesn’t lend itself to education. There is no knowledge there. It’s a set of propositions about how things should look.” or “There are no serious art magazines.” or “Training sissies for teaching jobs.” (when asked what the MFA’s raison d’être) or “With the artists, I don’t teach, I coach. I can’t tell them how to make art. I tell them to make more art. […] My job is to be current with the discourse and not be an asshole. That’s all I wanted in a professor.” has my ear, that’s for sure (interview, found over at Exposure Compensation).
