I write about the art world, its standards, hierarchies and failings, as they pertain to the discovery, promotion, and canonization of art and artists. I write about the value and quality of art criticism, the culture and environment of the gallery system, and the role and complicity of each type of creative worker (curators, directors, dealers, critics, collectors, artists). I also write about the construction of art history, and approaches to challenging or even changing aspects of the status quo.
