Video: Dave Hickey, part 3: Administrated Art History

On Saturday, December 14, 2013, Glasstire invited cultural critic Dave Hickey to come to Houston to speak in front of a full house at Rice University’s Sewell Hall auditorium.

Part 3 of 4: In which Dave bemoans the NEA, the administration of art history, the permanent reign of postminimalism, and the impossibility of stylistic innovation. Did you know that fair=mediocre, and that Christopher Wool is the worst artist ever?

Hang in there- Dave deals with a heckler (YO!) at 14:50.

Glasstire’s Hickey-fest concludes with part 4, here.
