Railing Opinion: A response to Irving Sandlers A Call to the Art CriticsBy Eric Fischl
I am not a critic. I am an artist. And I am pleased to see that critics are whining too. Curators should also be whining, or will be whining soon, and dealers too. They all will start to bawl. The art world is going through a period of adjustment and the models that we are comfortable with are no longer applicable.
