    Story

    In this series of essays, Roger Kimball, managing editor of the New Criterion and an art critic for the London Spectator, examines the current art scene with a scathing intelligence and a crystalline eloquence of writing style. Particularly amusing are his dissections of art-show catalogspeak.

    Faad says: "A wonderful eye opener"
    "Dreadful, sad"

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If you were preparing for a debate with someone who hated art, this might be a good way to get ready.


    What was most disappointing about Roger Kimball’s story?

    Rodger Kimball rants and rants about easy targets in the arts. It feels like being trapped with one's hick relatives.
    I don't mind an opinion different from mine, but Kimball does not use evidence. He just harrumphs titles of works he finds ridiculous and art that he does not understand.
    He then claims that art by women and minorities is just "affirmative action"and the white guy artists are just stupid.


    What didn’t you like about Christopher Lane’s performance?

    Lane gave a fine reading of a terrible book.


    What character would you cut from Art's Prospect?

    The premise is just awful. Some old white guy hates new stuff. Boring.


    Any additional comments?

    I really don't understand the point of this book. It is like someone who hates classical music writing a book on classical music.
